What I made for Canaan's 2nd Birthday Party - Circus theme

I asked Canaan what he wanted the theme of his birthday party to be. He not being 2 yet, stared at me. I then gave him options: cowboys & Indians, Elmo, Sesame Street, trucks & cars, etc. He said, "NO!" to every one of them. So I asked what he did want and Canaan announces, "El Feets!" which is how he says "elephants." What? How am I going to do an elephant party? It was either a zoo or circus theme and I chose circus because it seems to be easier for me to decorate.

Invitations: Made, cut out and sent the number of tickets per family members

Made, cut out and hand sewn the applique on his onesie:


Bought cantaloupe & watermelon aqua frescas from Pro Ranch Market in Albuquerque and put them in containers for easy dispense.

Filled different jars with different types of candy.

Also made chalk labels.

"Popcorn" cupcakes

And that ridiculous pinata! (I didn't make it, fyi.) Canaan was very concerned about Elmo after his legs came off. When Elmo fell he said, "Oh no, Elmo!"

It was fun but can't believe he's already 2 years old!
