From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

A Fun, Vintage Circus Themed Baby Shower

A Fun, Vintage Circus Themed Baby Shower

If you're looking for a baby shower theme that has a whole lot of potential for fun, you can't go wrong with a circus theme. This coed shower is a great example, styled by Jolette Angelini, who went all out to plan this fantastic shower for her sister and brother in-law, along with Jennifer Messock. With the expecting parents' love of vintage and fun style, the theme was a perfect fit.

Jolette and Jennifer decked out the decor in a palette of red, white and gold and brought in lots of cool old circus illustrations, which helped set that vintage tone. An old tub served as a beverage cooler, while classic popcorn boxes made for versatile vessels, from flower vases to clown nose holder! Desserts were theme appropriate too, featuring such treats as cotton candy, taffy, red vines, kettle corn and cupcakes. This mini-circus even had its own clown, who entertained the guests with balloon animals and magic tricks. Katie Jackson Photography captured so many great photos of the day, and you can check out more in the full gallery!
