For the theme, I veered away from the usual party themes. I want a unique one, hence I thought of a carnival/ big top circus theme. I don't know why but I was so drawn to this theme when I saw a kiddie party with this theme. Probably because it's different and I can use the colors that I love (red and turquoise), or obsessed about! The idea of having this theme may seem grandiose, but we are just planning to have a low key party, nothing extravagant with jugglers and stilt walkers. It's making the decorations and desserts that I will be doing that I am excited about, and again, the COLOR!
As early as February I have already been doing my research and as early as April I have started doing some of the decorations. I need to start early because I do not have a yaya to watch over my son (thanks to my parents, my hubby and our helper for taking turns in playing with Rocco while I do my stuff). I never realized how helpful the internet can be! I was able to download templates and pictures and got design inspirations. My favorite site is Etsy.com and just so love Michelle Bradley's designs. I will be posting pictures of the party next month, but here is my inspiration board.
The possibilites are endless and there were nights when I couldn't decide that the decorations will be. I just can't wait to see the end product!
