Orange & Blue Circus Inspired Birthday Party

The idea for Walker's orange and blue circus inspired birthday party came from his adorable birth announcement. Lots of DIY love went into the party, including stitched together round paper streamers, a birthday banner with the help of a silhouette paper cutter, "popcorn" cupcakes, and handmade party hats. Walker's mom, photographer Jen Fox, sourced most of the party supplies from Amazon, such as the clown noses, animal crackers, mason drinking jars, striped straws, and candy. With lots of young guests in attendance, the kids' party menu was full of finger food and "food on a stick". Poor Walker was not a big fan of being sung to, as you can see in the photo, but a birthday cupcake helped make him feel better! So cute! See all of the photos in the full gallery.
