Come one, come all! The circus in town!
I recently hosted a circus themed baby shower…on a budget, of course! There are so many fun elements of the event which allowed the party dollars to be stretched a bit.
So I’d like to share one of the ideas that we used. One of the fun elements of the party was a photo booth backdrop. As part of the decor, I ordered rolls of tickets from Oriental Trading. There were not enough rolls to put on each table and there were too many left over after making the centerpieces to go to waste. In order to get our money’s worth out of the rolls, I decided to make a backdrop!
This was a very simple, yet admittedly tedious, project. I started by securing a strip to the wall and then lining up the other rolls in alternating colors. The best part is that it can be made to be as small or as large as you need it to be.
You can also use the ticket rolls as streamers to put around the room…even use them as…dun, dun, dun! Raffle tickets for shower games!
Coming next, stretching your candy budget to make a carnival themed candy station!
