Circus and Carnival Theme

– Posted in: General Party Themes

Roll up, roll up for the party of the year! A visit to the circus or carnival always includes lots of fun, entertainment, bright colours, food, music and prizes. What better theme for a party! A circus/carnival theme would be best suited to an outdoors venue where your guests are free to try their hand at juggling, handstands or clowning.

Nominate someone with a loud voice to be the ringmaster and dress them accordingly.

Decorations

  • Create a carnival atmosphere by decorating in bright colours with balloons, flags and streamers.
  • String up fairy lights.
  • Create a circus ring or stage in the backyard or living room.
  • Make a booth using cardboard and hand out popcorn or fairy floss to your guests. The more adventurous could turn this into a kissing booth.
  • Party Products Australia is a Brisbane-based online store with a vast range of products. Check out their circus themed party products for all ages.
