Circus Week, Day 4

First of all, I must pause to say...

Happy Seventh Birthday, Big Sis!

My first-born through the years:  at 9 months, 2 years, a few days before her 4th birthday (first day of preschool!) and now.

We're bringing cupcakes to her class near the end of the school day, but while we're at home, we are working on bringing an over-the-top big top shindig to life.

And I must say, this is the last one for a long time.  Big party, I mean.

The hubby and I have been hard at work, making stuff...

And the dollar section of Michael's was very handy, too.  My friend Wendi, who is making Big Sis's cake and cookies, gave me heads-up last spring.

Masks, paper lanterns, blank books, and goodie bags from the $1 section of Michael's.

We also hit the party supply section of Target.  I love the new Spritz line of party stuff, and honestly, I'm relieved to not make a paper banner this year.

Circus party supplies from Target.

And last, I placed an order with Oriental Trading Company.

Circus stampers, banners, stickers, and circus-theme rubber duckies from Oriental Trading.

We didn't get everything at once.  I've been stocking up since spring.  We are, however, making everything at once because we're CRAZY.

  1. oh WOW!!! Happy day to the big girl!!! This all looks amazing and if she doesn't quite appreciate all the work cuz she's a kid....well I do!!

    1. She's always very appreciative. That's one of her best qualities. She knows how hard we're working. We even forgot to make it to her school pep assembly yesterday, where she was receiving a Star Student award for her class. Oops. ;o)
