Circus Themed Nursery Accessories

Today we would like to dedicate this post to the circus that inspired so many of us in childhood. There are many decor options out there inspired by the circus theme, but we paid particular attention to select items that not only stood out for their magic but also their elegance and class. Before we start, we would love to share this children’s poem written by Kenn Nestbitt.

Mr. Brown, the circus clown
puts his clothes on upside down.
He wears his hat upon his toes
and socks and shoes upon his nose.

He ties his ties around his thighs
and wraps his belt around his eyes.
He hangs his earrings from his hips
and stockings from his fingertips.

He puts his glasses on his feet
and shirt and coat around his seat.
And when he’s dressed, at last he stands
and walks around upon his hands.

We really like this wall decal from Mae. It is delicate and reminds us of book illustrations from our childhoods.

Staying in the same elegant and classic style—with a modern twist—we share these circus prints we found on Etsy.

More modern but soft in style and touch, Muskhane’s garlands, baskets, juggling balls and colorful round rugs would add color and fun to any room.

If you want to add a whimsical touch to your little one’s nursery, we recommend these “fun” circus letters.

Last but not least is play time. What’s better than the Janod Story Box Circus? We are great fans of Janod for its commitment to educational, safe and stylish toys.

When one says circus, I automatically see red and yellow and white. Much like the colors of the lighting FUN sign.
