The main idea was to have a party that was simple and colorful, without an obvious theme. Our little girl hadn't been exposed to a lot of tv characters, so she did not have a favorite character to be the driving force and inspiration for the party. Instead, we chose to use animals and colors to compose a theme, since that's what she was learning at the time. And also, because we live in an old house we love, there was nothing better than marrying a vintage theme with animals that she loved. So vintage circus it was! The color scheme was vintage inspired, as well as the patterns. I purchased the round poms poms at etsy and made the banner pom poms to accentuate the color scheme. Other than that, I worked on the same combination for the tags, cards, labels, invitation, etc. It was a fun project to work on and practice my illustrator and photoshop skills. The piñata was a gift and it completed the decor. The home brewed beer was also a wonderful gift and it made the party! Everyone had a great time, especially our girl.
