If you’re looking for a party theme that’s a little bit unusual, but absolutely loads of fun, then why not consider a Circus party theme? There’s lots of directions you can go with it, and with the theme comes a great amount of fun party game ideas that you can have you party guests playing! The one problem you might run up against when planning a party to a Circus theme is what food you can put out, especially if you want it to tie into your theme to create a cohesive party experience. Well, we have some fantastic Circus party food ideas for you today, so consider the problem solved!
What’s the main thing you do at a Circus? Watch the performers! And no viewing is complete without some popcorn! You could just set out some popcorn in bowls for your party guests, but why not amp it up a bit and get some proper popcorn bags and buckets? Our popcorn paper bags are perfect for holding popcorn as a party food; they’re white with red stripes and say “popcorn” on them so there’s no mistaking their contents! You receive ten to a packet, for £2.39, so they’re perfect for accommodating all your guests. Find them here.
If you’d prefer a popcorn bucket that you can just throw a load of popcorn into and leave it on the table, then this bucket is for you. The bucket is microwave safe, but not dishwasher safe, and the bucket dimensions are 20 x 17.5 x 17.5 cm, so it’ll hold plenty of popcorn for everyone. You can find the popcorn bucket here, for £8.64.
It’s pretty unlikely you’re going to be able to fit a Circus tent into your party venue, but that’s no reason to leave it out altogether! The Toot Sweet Small Tented Cake Boxes are super cute, and decorated just like the Big Top Circus tent! The boxes each hold their very own cupcakes, so you could give these out at the end of the party alongside your favour bags, or just pop them on the table with the rest of your party food. You can find the tented cake boxes here, for £7 for a pack of four.
Now you’ve got your food containers sorted, how about some fun Circus party food ideas? Generally the food you’ll find at parties is the type of thing that’s carried around in boxes for the audience to buy during intermissions. This is the perfect kind of food to be used as party food; some great ideas are popcorn, candyfloss, hotdogs, corn on the cob and French fries!
The one thing that’s pretty essential at any birthday party is the birthday cake, and you want that to fit in with your theme too, right?
