So my tiny, weeny boy, who is not so tiny or weeny anymore turned 2 years old on Tuesday and we celebrated with a circus themed birthday. It was so much fun prepping for his birthday and I enjoyed planning every little detail. Here are some pics from the big day!

The sweet table definitely required the most planning and time commitment however, it was tons of fun. Once you have a theme picked out the key to a perfect sweet table is stick to a couple of colours. For the games, we tried to keep them as simple as possible since most of the little ones in attendance were under the age of 5. We had a bean bag toss, face painting, fortune teller, a tent with balls in, a fishing game, tight rope walking and of course a prize booth.

To be honest most of the kids threw the balls around, had their face painted and hung out at the prize booth. A couple of them did the bean bag toss. We also hired a busker, who came for about 30 minutes of entertainment. He was AMAZING and I couldn’t believe how long the little ones were focused for.
