20 May 'Roll Up Roll Up' it's Dexter's big top party
It was a circus extravaganza for Dexters 6th birthday party with Coco the Clown and Sam our amazing circus performer who ran a complete workshop for the kids teaching them not only to tightrope but also the skills of juggling and plate spinning. Dexter loved going to the circus and it only seemed appropriate to give him a party to remember with tasty circus themed food of hot dogs in special red and white stripped plates and ice cream from our themed ice cream parlour. All the guests got to take home a sweetie bag from the stunning circus themed sweetie table. The party ended on a high with all the children being put into teams and taking part in our specially designed games of soak the clown, tin can alley and the clown ball toss game. The party started with Mabel, Dexter’s sister greeting the little guests in a makeshift photobooth which was made out of wood and painted red. Each child was given an admit one ticket which allowed them entrance into the spectacular party.
Once inside the children were greeted with circus style music and they had a chance to see the amazing ice cream parlour table which had an array of wonderful toppings including smarties, marshmallows, popping candy and much more.
The big top boxes gave a great circus feel to the ice cream parlour table.
On the ice cream table Dexter had his own personalised ice cream cups which said Dexter’s Circus. Once the children were given their ice cream in the cups they could put on their own toppings which all made for a really fun experience.
As part of the ice cream parlour table the children were offered a drink which was served in beautiful bottles and a specially designed sign saying ‘Drink Me’ on the front.
As well as the ice cream parlour table we also created a sweetie table where we colour co-ordinated the sweets to match the simple, yet bold red and white stripe of the parties colour theme.
We also wanted some bunting to help create a vintage feel to the party and to have it personalised with printed circus font letters. We were so lucky to have found www.deborahsparks.co.uk she actually created the name Dexter’s circus on the bunting. All the flags were double sided with invisible seams and made from 100% cotton fabric. We can not recommend Deborah enough for her stunning bunting and her speed of delivery, we shall certainly be using her wonderful products again.
Once outside the children were kept captivated by Sam who performed an amazing juggling show. He also spent most of his time giving the kids an opportunity to juggle themselves with coloured handkerchiefs and peacock feathers. The kids even got the chance to walk the tight rope.
After all that fun the party ended with team games and these photos as well as all the photos from the party were captured courtesy of David and his lovely wife Claire Long from www.davidlongphotography.co.uk
