Come one, come all! The greatest baby shower on earth!!! That's right, guys- a circus themed baby shower! How cute is that??

Invitation ideas are endless here. You can opt for invites with clowns on them, a merry-go-round theme, or a standard circus-styled flyer such as the one above.

The table setting should be color, color and more color! Red, yellows and blues are the primary colors of a circus (but adding a few more splashes here and there won't hurt). You could also add hanging streamers from the ceiling for a 'tent-like' effect. Colorful balloon bouquets are also suitable here as the atmosphere should be festive, fun and childlike!

For the menu, go with circus-themed foods with a grown up twist. Chicken fingers and fries with zesty dips, corn dogs, individual cotton candy servings and gourmet flavored popcorn are a great way to go. 'Colorburst Cupcakes' are also simple to make and could be topped with clown cupcake toppers for a sweet display (recipe link below)!

For favors, these cute little popcorn soaps are adorable and unique. Trust me; your guests will never want to leave!
