This new Real Party feature is so much fun! It’s a Vintage Circus” baby shower theme that’s chic, sophisticated, and even a little bit GLAM… how’s that for a fresh take on the baby shower concept? =)

The party was created by Sharon Taylor and features cool details like feather-topped cupcakes, kelly green paper pinwheels, and a vintage toy animal “circus train”.

Read on for lots of inspiring images and all the details, as told by Sharon

“We found a Vintage Heywood Wakefield Baby Pram at a local thrift store and lacquered it in a high gloss black. The wheels were adorned with rhinestones and placed in front of the cage to look as if it was pulling a circus train.

I created a faux credenza with black paint and white foam core board. The bebe’s Monogram of an “H” was placed in the center.

The credenza served as a dessert/gift bar, and another identical credenza was created for the punch & champagne bar.

Guests sipped fruit filled champagne and enjoyed dippers dipped in chocolate and cheese fondues.

I used vintage toy animals and dressed them up to ride in a “theatrical circus train” where sugar cookies were attached to the circus train bars…a twist on the standard dessert bar.

My team created kelly green pinwheels and custom made cupcake toppers of feathers, pipe cleaners, flags, and monogrammed “H’s”.

The Candy Bar was an old narrow book shelf found at a thrift store and painted with a fresh coat of white paint. Thrift store crystal dishes were filled with rock candy, marshmallows, gumdrops, green jelly bellies, and m&ms.

The Candy Bar shelf also doubled as a gift for the mom to be.
