I recently had the honour of being made Guide Parent to a very special little boy named Rafferty Grey. His Mummy and Daddy held a beautiul naming ceremony and 1st birthday party for him in their back garden, with a fantastic circus theme. It was a beautiful sunny day enjoyed by all and I was asked to help out with the circus themed decor with Studio Campbell's design services.
This was the circus themed invitation that went out to guests. It was great to work on something so vibrant and playful. The design was set up like a flyer with a ticket attached for guest admittance.
The birthday boy enjoying his big day. Raffy's Mummy had big ideas for the day, so we had a clear brief from the beginning as to what was required. We created a gorgeous sign (see below) that featured everything about Raffy from his favourite things, to his weight. A wonderful keepsake at this special time in his life.
Naturally at a circus themed birthday party, you have to have circus themed entertainment. We created a DIY ring toss with old beer bottles, replacing the labels with personalised 'Raffy' ones. There was also a Tin Can Alley with foam cans and beanbags. We created signs to match each game.
We also were asked to create a lion 'face hole' for the little ones to have funny pictures and a 'Big Top' sign hung above a DIY photobooth, complete with circus themed props.
Rafferty's cake was an awesome two tier, vibrant, circus themed extraganza, with two yummy fillings and personalised iced bunting held up by two flagpoles. Guests were given bottles of bubbles as favours to take away from the party, tied with personalised Raffy tags.
It was wonderful to see how all of it came together on the day and gave Raffy a fantastic first birthday that the family will treasure always.
