Twins Circus Birthday Party (38 photos)
I started planning my boy/girl twins (Harrison & Lyla) first birthday party when they were 6 months old. I wanted something cute that would be gender neutral as well. Since their nursery is a subtle circus theme, I decided to go with that. We had planned to have part of the party outside, but the day turned out to be one of the hottest we had all summer, so we moved it all indoors.
We had everything a circus might have: hot dogs, peanuts, popcorn, candy, soda pop, lolli-pops, cotton candy, and even elephants....(on the cake, that is).
A few of my favorite thing were: the invitations, the cake (made by a friend), the cotton candy cups made by myself, the Instagram photo banner made by myself, and the "guest book", which was journaling cards guests taped a picture of the twins to and then wrote them notes. I plan to make a book out of all the cards.
