If I ran the Circus...

We celebrated liv's birthday - round 2 on Sunday, August 8th. My sister, Dani, and I have been talking about this for months. I chose the circus theme based on the Dr. Seuss book "If I ran the Circus". It turned out great. It exceeded my expectations and the party had a lot of details that I loved. We made most of the decorations and we also made the cupcakes. For food we did a hot dog and braut bar. It was delicious and I may have had a couple helpings :). I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

my mom made this cage, literally out of a big cardboard box. Liv would have destroyed it if we let her.

Dani made us matching pinwheel flowers that were exactly like the decorations...which you will see soon.

bday outfit.

had to have at least one cupcake pic. she's a pro now.

Here are a lot of the decorations and the cupcakes. We also played a video throughout the party. I made one that I posted a few weeks ago, but Dani re-made it and of course it was better ha.
