The invitations! I used the papers from the dimpleprints digital kit I bought off of Etsy. Jennifer Shirley Photography took the pictures and did the invitations.
She worked with me on my vision and made them exactly how I wanted! I love them.

Welcome to Emmy's Circus Party!
Crepe Paper is a very inexpensive way to decorate!
I decided the easiest way to do the cake was to go to my local Brookshires Grocery store and pick up a double layer round cake already mad with cream cheese frosting. Then I added the rest. I made the bow with layers and layers of left over ribbon and bought the Birthday sign at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section along with the E also! Easy and turned out cute for around $25
Snow cone cupcakes... How cute are these! Everyone loved them! I got the idea http://karascupcakes.blogspot.com/ I used sugar sprinkles but I suggest using the large ice crystals to look more like ice snowcones, but I think they turned out cute and they tasted good too. If you have to buy store bought icing for convenience, you should buy the "Whipped" icing. It is so smooth and is so GOOD! I had to make the box to hold these things, they still don't stand up too straight! Vender cupcake holder are too expensive!
Popcorn cupcakes! Wew! Thanks to my MIL for helping me apply 360 marsh mellows! I made the cupcake wraps out of paper from Michaels (the only place I could find red and white striped paper) and made these labels to stick on the front!
Prizes I picked up along the way at the dollar stores and Michaels!
Bullseye, Pin the tale on the Donkey game and Games sign is from Hobby Lobby and the Water balloon toss game from Michaels. Use your 40% off coupons at both places to cut down on cost!!! I was up late the night before filling up the water balloons but it was all worth it! I used PVC pipe, stuck in the ground with rebar. The red/white pendants are from Oriental Trading!
Table set up...didn't last too long because of wind. Ran out of time to decorate the chairs but they need some tulle or to be covered completely!
Little kids table with Emmy's personalized placemat!
I made all the signs with fun fonts I have collected from http://kevinandamanda.com/
Face painting sign from Hobby Lobby
Candy buffet tables with creative fun labels I made for each. Of course the kids loved this table!!!
Paper bags from Hobby Lobby, I punched holes and added ribbon for handles, Also, added the tags to the front that say "Thank you for making my party sweet"
Lots of fun festive food! Peanuts, Animal Crackers, Cracker Jacks, Cotton Candy, Chips, Pretzels, Popcorn, Hotdogs!!!
I made this sign that said
"Grab a bag take some treats...Enjoy some sugar because you are sweet!
I found these Carosel candy from Dollar Tree for 25 cents each. WOW! So cute!
Signs from Hobby Lobby. I rented the popcorn machine and bought the Hot dog machine from Walmart.com. It made the most perfect Hot dogs!
I bought him from a local party store Paper Shack.
I bought these CIRCUS letters from Hobby lobby and covered them with paper. I hot glued wood dowels to the back and stuck them in the hay bail.
Dig for Prizes!!
Finally, my wonderful little face painter painted her own face! So cute!
All the photography was done by me also, so it's not the best quality. This party was held the weekend after Thanksgiving so my friend and photographer was out of town. Anybody that books a party with me, I will have a photographer available for Birthday photos, custom invitaions, and event photos. I will list more information on this soon!
