The Greatest Showman is played on repeat in our house and we cannot get enough of it. My daughter wants to have The Greatest Showman birthday party and as I scoured the internet for some of the cutest ideas, I thought I’d share what I found in case your little one wants a circus party, too!
I love the simplicity of these ideas, like this backdrop using red and white streamers. I’d put red and white balloons from the dollar store along the top border…
