My Greatest Showman Birthday Party

Dear Mummy, roll-up roll-up! Come and see the greatest spectacle Basingstoke has ever seen… well at least in my head it was the greatest party I had ever seen.

It was my 6th Birthday Party after all. My folks had spent a lot of time organising it after my first party date fell through due to the snow, however we were back on track without a snowflake in the sky. Thirty of my friends and family helped me celebrate in our local village hall.

The theme was The Greatest Showman and we were fortunate to be joined by Playhouse Parties and the talented ringmaster Daniel. He orchestrated an amazing couple of hours filled with magic tricks, circus games and dancing, all to the backdrop of The Greatest Showman Soundtrack.

Even after all the hassle of the snow, Daniel was accommodating and professional at rescheduling at short notice. Not only that but he kept us in the loop and my folks had great communication with him leading up to the event which put my mind at ease.

Party guests donned their circus outfits and we had Ann Wheeler (the acrobat), a couple of little ringmasters but sadly my mummy chickened out of her bearded lady costume, she didn’t want to frighten off the school mums!

Our table was dressed in red, blues and whites with a really cool backdrop we obtained off Amazon for a bargain price. Table decorations were picked up in the Party Pieces sale earlier in the year and balloons filled up from our local Hobbycraft.

Our fabulous cake was made by a family friend who’s been making our cakes since my mummy was a little girl. Of course it had to be circus themed.

My folks served hot dogs and freshly cooked popcorn, along with lots of treats. Sadly if they could have hired a candy floss machine they would have done but the thought of sugar crazed kids wasn’t THAT appealing to them! Check out my video below to see all the action. (We haven’t included any of our party guests for privacy reasons, so don’t worry I wasn’t alone!)

My mummy has vowed this will be the last big party she’ll hold for me (I don’t believe her) as she loves planning parties and it’s a great excuse to see family.

Having an entertainer at an event really takes the stress out of having to keep kids engaged, involved and happy at birthday parties. We were super impressed about how Daniel managed the children and kept them all happy and included. This gave my folks a chance to speak to guests and soak up the party atmosphere!

At one point Daniel had all of the children totally engrossed as he performed tricks and played the Limbo with them! It might have been the fab Ringmaster outfit he was wearing that drew them in but I’m sure it was his energy and charisma. One child even whisper to his mum that he WAS the REAL Greatest Showman!

I knew better however… it was his sidekick that had come from the Farnborough Circus! So what was the last party you went to? Was it themed like mine?
