After planning my Wedding back in 2010, I got the bug for adding a bit of panache to any event and no party has ever been the same since! With a family birthday party just around the corner, my Sister (one half of stationery supremo, Bonny & Clyde) and I have got to work planning a ‘Circus Spectacular’. Here’s the moodboard so you can get the gist…

With just eleven days to pull together this bash, we’re pooling the resources and getting our hands dirty to create an event to remember. On its way to my door are lengths of red and white fabric, glitzy gold spray paint and reels of circus tickets. This weekend will be spent crafting a kissing booth and blackboard menus to plant in the festoon lit garden whilst no doubt there’s a bit of signage being created at Bonny & Clyde HQ. Keep your fingers crossed that my photobooth props make an appearance from an eBay seller and that we have enough helium to make a statement with balloons in the Big Top!
Watch out for updates on Instagram over the weekend!
