Peach Mint Circus Party

Event stylist Samantha Dunne of Dunne with Style put together an incredible birthday party that showcased a fun circus theme complete with a brilliant array of bright colors and inglorious décor. The theme of Peach Mint Circus truly embodied the charisma of a birthday and the circus all in one, while highlighting joyful nostalgia.

The main event theme colors of peach and mint offered a crisp feel to the party, while individual flowers made of puffed peach and mint tulle added a whimsical touch as they were placed all over the venue. The main event table that housed the birthday cake and all the most fabulous sweets was absolutely gorgeous with a wondrous backdrop of oversized white paper pinwheels, and an elaborate circus sign welcoming guests to join in on enjoying the circus theme. The birthday cake itself was breathtaking, with two large tiers served on a mint ceramic cake platter. The top tier was all-white, with a topper of a bunched assortment of the mint tulle flowers and a golden elephant figurine. The bottom tier of the cake was really something special, with an ombre design of dark peach fading up into light peach.

Surrounding the cake were magnificently detailed treats, including a miniature mint colored cake with more gold elephant figurines on top, and delightful peach-colored cupcakes presented on handcrafted peach paper pinwheels. A distressed wood mail holder added the perfect chic accent to hold sugar cookies, and peach and mint candies, along with glass milk jars with miniature windmill straws. An apothecary jar full of mint-hued cotton candy and striped boxes full of warm popcorn were clever circus-motif additions, while jars filled with large mustache cake pops brought a timeless look to the table.

The party was tied together splendidly with peach and mint shaded circus flag banners, tassel garland, and a whole shelving bureau opened and full of lines of glass jars full of bright candy.

From Samantha :

For Eloise’s 2nd birthday we wanted to take a fresh twist on a classic favourite so put a whimsical and pretty twist on the circus classic, because lets face it, when you have a 2 year old life is a bit like a circus.

Li-Ann from Ham & Pea Paperie took vintage circus animals and ‘prettied’ them up with the addition of frills and ruffles, we replaced the classic blue and red with the more feminine mint and peach and the tone was set.

Guests were greeted at the tickets booth adorned with vintage carnival tickets, ribbon wands and handmade pinwheels.

The dessert table had a carnival atmosphere with sweet treats including a pair of ombre ruffled cakes, cupcakes topped with mini macarons and cotton candy, chocolate coated oreos adorned with pinwheels. Custom designed sugar cookies to match the vintage circus animals from the backdrop and for the little gents, moustache cookies.

Guests filled up circus tent favour boxes with treats from the candy stand and went home laden with pinwheels, ribbon wands and hand painted gold circus animal figurines – over indulged just like a day at the carnival.
