You can’t go wrong with any of the tableware below. I love the bright, colorful plates and cups. And a Ferris Wheel cupcake stand will be the talk of your party.
I would skip the peanuts if you’re inviting anyone with nut allergies, especially if you don’t know if a guest may have a nut allergy. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
A cute alternative is Circus Peanut Candy. These were such a thing when I was a little girl. These are peanut-shaped marshmallow candies with a soft and spongy texture.

Face painting is a fun idea. If you’re not good at face painting, chances are you have a friend who would love to help you out.
Hiring a clown is a good idea for older kids. They tend to freak out younger kids. I remember when my son was about 16 months old. We attended a birthday party with a clown. He basically cried the entire time. Clowns can be downright creepy to some kids.
These are also great entertainment ideas:
- Balloon Artist
- Bubble Machine
- Dunk Tank
- Photo Booth
Once the party is over, you’ll want to send your guests home with a little reminder of how much fun they had.
A Dumbo Birthday Party is such a fun party. You can go as wild or stay as tame as you’d like. Happy partying!
