So, until the wedding of the century does happen, I have to take my chances where I can find them. And remember this? Well, it's NEXT MONTH. And celebrating hitting the end of my third decade is the perfect opportunity to plan a flipping awesome party.
But what to do? I have spent about a year trying to think of the perfect theme. It's hard! When my best friend chose a penguin themed party, I was kind of jealous - not because I want a penguin themed party myself, but because it was a theme that was just so HER. And it was perfect - everyone embraced the theme and it was one of the best nights I've ever had. But for me - I wasn't sure. I toyed with a 50s theme, Alice in Wonderland, a Masquerade Ball, a Glitter Party... but nothing quite clicked. Until I was out on a walk last week and it came to me:
And suddenly I was full of ideas! FULL, I tell you. And everyone else coming was also full of ideas! IT IS THE PERFECT THEME. It is literally all I'm talking about right now (see, I am basically treating it as a wedding to MYSELF) and I can't keep it off the blog any longer. So here is my current party wishlist:
I'm imagining glasses of (probably lethal) punch, complete with these retro straws.
Circus food - popcorn is a must.
As is candy floss.
And moustache cookies, because all ringmasters have moustaches, right?
Cupcakes! So many ideas for cupcakes, dressed up in big top-themed cases.
God knows I love an excuse to wear a top hat.
The circus skills tent is always one of my favourite parts of Glastonbury, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to buy these!
It's okay though - it's all on eBay, and everyone knows that Paypal money is not real money...
