Birthday Girl Saylor Rue loves the circus, and her mom Lottie was ready to invite all of her friends and family to the best birthday on earth with this Circus Spectacular held in their front yard!  This Circus Spectacular was designed by mom Lottie of Couture Events by Lottie…come one, come all!

The birthday cake was a tower of buttercream layers and when cut, showed all the fun of circus colors. Topped with a handmade big tent of fabric bunting flags, the cake was kept simple, cute and yummy! Red striped curtains adorned the dessert table to really give it an authentic big top feel!

There were lots of activities to keep the little ones entertained!  The kids enjoyed a variety of activities from coloring clowns, bobbing for apples, a kids tattoo booth, and taking photos with the circus inspired ticket backdrop. Entirely constructed and designed by mommy designer, Couture Events by Lottie, the party was styled down to the smallest of details.

This at home circus birthday spectacular was complete with peanuts, a mechanical caste iron jalopy horse, animal masks, balloon maker, ice cream truck, and one incredible strong man exhibit.

Favors included Saylor’s favorite, animal cookie circus boxes and cotton candy pals. Friends enjoyed golden corn dogs, peanuts and a popcorn station just like an actual circus!

Thank you for sharing your daughter’s cute party with us, Lottie!
