This Disney loving family knows how it’s done! For Kalia’s First Birthday, mommy (Kristine Atienza Photography) teamed up with Linsey Herrera of Lux Events and Design for a Girly Dumbo Inspired Circus Party that seriously melts my heart! I literally love every detail- from the fabulous faux ticket cake and pretty mint paper fan backdrop to the precious (and happy!) birthday girl pictures. It’s all SO CUTE.

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Linsey…
A Raffle ticket Faux Cake, Dumbo cookies, A train for the kids to ride, mini desserts, paper flowers, marshmallow peanuts and animal crackers were just part of the cuteness! I had the pleasure of planning Kalia’s 1st Birthday, Dumbo style! I did her older sister’s Eva’s a few years back, her party was the adorable It’s a Small World Party. The family loves Disney so it was only appropriate to do a Dumbo themed circus party! The party took place at Irvine Regional Park. They have an awesome set up with a train- you can’t have a dumbo party without a train! One of my favorite elements of this party was the dessert bar. I created a faux raffle ticket cake as the centerpiece by gluing raffle tickets to round hat boxes. To make the backdrop for the dessert bar I glued paper accordion fans to a thin piece of plywood. It is such a budget friendly idea that gives a big impact. I printed her name in a circus font on sticker paper and stuck the stickers to it. One of my other favorite elements were the favors for the kid! I purchased vintage looking popcorn and peanut bags from ETSY. Instead of using traditional popcorn, I used Pirate’s Booty as a healthier alternative. The kids got bubbles and animal crackers to take home too!
