PRINTING TIPS:
For best print quality, I strongly recommend having these files printed at a place like Kinkos, Copy Club, or another local printer. Due to the heavy ink coverage in the designs, it will most likely be more affordable in the long run to have them printed commercially than to use up all of the ink cartridges on your home printer… and less of a hassle too! (Just download the files and burn them to a disc or copy them to a removable thumb drive for easy file transfer.)

If you do plan to printing these at home, be sure to use photo-quality paper for best results!

You are free to download and print these designs for your personal use only. Please do not attempt to resell or redistribute them. If you’d like blog about these templates, please make sure to link to the full post at HWTM and not directly to the downloadable files. Thank you!

Thank you so much. I plan to use this theme for my son’s 1st bday since our older son calls him “bebe”. Do you have any suggestions for invites that would work well with your downloads and party favor ideas? Thanks.

Hi Maryann –

I love these circus invites from Polka Dot Design:
http://www.polkadotdesign.com/catalog/Polka-Dot-Design-Digital/PDDD-NP58BD8065

They’re not the exact same colors, but it shouldn’t matter too much with the invites since they go out far in advance. However, you might be able to email them and see if the colors can be customized at all. The argyle print is on there though – as well as some elephants :)

For party favors, it depends on if your guests will primarily be adults or little ones. An edible favor like popcorn balls, cotton candy buckets from Sweet Factory, or these treat cones would work for any age:

or you could do circus-themed sugar cookies – like circus elephants or the unicycle bears :)

Sunflower Baking can do custom shapes for your theme if you send pics of what you’re looking for (or describe them) and she does amazing work! Here’s the link:

Good luck! :)

Hi Sandra –

The downloadable PDFs actually are already high-resolution (300 dpi) and very suitable for printing. Just click on the “Download” links below each image to get the high-res versions :)

Hello Jenn.
I have no words to thank you for giving it to us, to me. Truly. You gave more than a free cirque du bebe patterns to me. You helped me understand how it works to make a whole customization. I knew by heart – actually I have learned searching sites like yours – that one has to plan color pallete, buy, find or create your party prints, choose paper, decide what kind of tags, wraps, and etc. to make, identify a good printing bureau and go ahead; but I feel that the heart of it is really first of all having the prints very well decided and designed. I was working so hard (actually, it is 06:23am here in Sao Paulo and I haven’t gone to bed yet. I spent the whole day and night working on putting together so many images, photos of fabrics, draws, etc in order to have a pattern to send to the printing guy to make the tags and just after a click my soon to be 3 year’s old baby boy party will have your sophisticated look. Again. You donated me something you cannot imagine. Thank you sooo much! Beatriz/Sao Paulo/Brazil
