circus themed party ideas

Instead of having a “signature drink” at the Festival Du Bebe shower, we had a Signature Drink STATION! This is a fun idea that you could really tailor to any sort of theme or occasion.

To play up the Mardi Gras/Masquerade element of this particular theme, I focused on SPARKLING drinks and COLORFUL containers

The drink station offered sparkling water, sodas, mini cans of sparkling IZZE, and a DIY Champagne & Cider Bar where guests could choose their favorite mixer (juice or liqueur) then top it with their bubbly of choice (champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling cider) to create their own drink!

I don’t have a full shot of the finished table, but here’s a work-in-progress to give you an idea the set up:

The juice carafes (pictured below) – Blueberry-Pomegranate, O.J., and Cranberry Apple – sat next to the Chambord and were elevated by a free-standing shelf from IKEA.

I was overjoyed to stumble upon these sturdy plastic champagne flutes from IKEA. They were only $2.99 per 4-pack, came in cool colors that worked perfectly with the theme, and are totally reusable!

Tiny 1″ artificial butterflies were such an easy way to dress up the flutes and pulled double-duty as “glass charms” to help each guest keep track of their drink. I used pop-up glue dots to attach the butterflies, which made for easy removal later.
