Here are more of my favorites. This was a very cool idea. Lots of fun DIY projects; super easy, super fun.
Prize for the Ball Toss; simple and cute.. and I found the idea on http://www.thoughtfullysimple.com/step-right-up-its-a-circus-party-theme/
The photos above is of my favorite decoration. I saw a video for the cute centerpiece. Super easy to make, I got everything from the Dollar Tree, and it really was a fun project. All you need is a plastic popcorn box (2 for a dollar), a bag of gum balls, a 6-pack of suckers, a Styrofoam ball, yellow paint, glue dots, super glue, and rocks to weigh down the box.

Don’t forget the music; there is great circus music to use on YouTube. It really ties everything together!
Wow, a year has flown by, and you are already doing and learning so much. You are special and unique, from the top of your head to the tip of your little toes. There is no one like you. And there never will be. You add a light and sparkle to this world that no one else can reproduce. My love for you cannot be measured.
Know that you are loved. Your grandparents look on at you in awe. They hold you in their arms, beaming with love as they marvel at the wonder that you are. Your aunts, uncles, and cousins love you, dearly. You are the gleam in your father’s eye. He loves you more than words can express. We would all do anything for you. Every time I see you, every time I hear your voice, I feel more alive, more in love and more inspired to be a better, kinder person, more moved to show my gratitude for this blessing to be able to love you. You were worth it all. You are worth it all.
I Love You, Quinny Poo-Poo Nose
Clown Bean Bag Toss
I made my one board with the idea from http://www.sheknows.com/parenting/articles/993309/diy-carnival-games-for-kids-made-from-cardboard-boxes. I just bought a black board instead of using a white board and a blue board. I made the bean bags out of some scrap, polka dot fabric and some kidney beans.
We also had a Ring Toss and Horseshoe Toss.
I made her bunting with Red Cardstock and the polka dot straws. I got 10 straws for 10 cents from Wal-Mart. I used the Plaque shape for the letter tickets, including her date of birth as the ticket numbers, twine, and tape to put it all together.
