Vintage Circus

Baby Fever is in the air!

Not for me, but for my brother-in-law and his girlfriend.  They are due in the beginning of June, and I'll be hosting my first big event since Jake and I got married!  It'll be fun to do something like this for the first time.  Before getting married my mom generally handled showers and things like that... now it's my turn!

Jake's brother is a dairy farmer, and his girlfriend is a large animal vet, so I definitely wanted to do something to incorporate animals into the design.  Call me crazy, but I didn't want to just go the easy route and do "farm" or "farm animals".  

Jake says I'm just making it hard on myself, but I want to have fun doing it and farm just seemed too cliche- so I decided to do a vintage circus theme!

I'm hoping to do "fair food" like caramel corn in cute paper cones, mini donuts, caramel apples, hot dogs because my parents have an old-fashioned hot dog spinner and for drinks to have a couple drinks set out with nametags around the neck of the serving bottle.  It will be for both men and women and children so I'm going to have an art area set up for the kids, and Jake will be around to hang with his brother and the other guys.  

Here are some of my "pinspirations" for the day:







What do you think of my ideas?  Do you have any ideas for games to play?
