{Braeden's Three Ring Circus}

{Picture Overload}

Braeden's Three Ring Circus was a huge hit! I loved every minute of it! We had it all, the bounce house, popcorn machine, cotton candy, hot dog bar, soda pop, games, and so much more. It was a ton of fun!

The bounce house arrived in the morning around 10:00 AM, so Braeden had been jumping the WHOLE day. It was a little pricey, but afterwards, we determined it a huge necessity. The kids LOVED it. Oh, and the parents LOVED it too :)

I was able to get an old fashioned pop corn machine that worked, which completely made the space. The cake I created on paper, took the design to our local HYVEE and they baked & decorated it. I think it turned out great! You can't really see, but there are stars on the top. My mom made the yummy cupcakes with the cotton candy toppers. Cotton Candy, peanuts, "ticket" mints, rock candy & hot dog containers were all bought at random.

I created all the signage ... this included the invites, water bottles small table signs. The banners were bought at our local Hobby Lobby. Plates, napkins, silly straws & buckets were all bought at Hobby Lobby too.

Overall, Braeden had a great time, and we appreciate all our friends & family who helped & came to his birthday party. I can't believe he is already 3 years old! Where has the time gone??

Here are the invitations ...

And here is the party!

More pictures to come in the following days from family & friends!
