How to Throw an Extravagant Greatest Showman-Themed Party

Released in 2017, The Greatest Showman is one of those movies that has enraptured audiences across multiple generations. The vibrant colors, stunning acrobatics, and incredible score in this musical is nothing short of infectious.

The movie pays homage to the birth of show business and tells a story of a visionary who started with nothing and went on to create a how that became a worldwide sensation. Filled with dramatic imagery, colorful characters, memorable lines, and hit songs, The Greatest Showman is an incredible theme to choose for your party!


To help you get started, here are few must-have ideas that you can incorporate into the theme for a great event.



1. Red and Yellow All the Way


The first thing you need to nail the party is the color palette. Circus-themed parties are very vibrant and full of color, with deep reds and yellows being the most prominent ones. The best part is that you don’t need to go out of your way to incorporate these colors.


Regular streamers and crepe paper rolls can help you achieve the look you’re going for instantly. The table covers, paper plates, and cups you use for serving food can also incorporate the same colors.



2. Food and Refreshments


Choose food items that you might normally find in a circus. Not only will it match the theme, but it’s also a hit with children. Popcorn, pretzels, snow cones, corn dogs, and candy floss are great options when planning your menu. These snacks are often easy to handle and don’t require a lot of fuss.


If you’re looking for gorgeous, fluffy candy floss to be a feature, we do offer a custom candy machine that can spin sugar into colorful candy clouds that the kids love!


Circus Props


3. Circus Props


If it’s an outdoor party, consider adding some props to your décor to complete the look. Hand-painted entrance signs or circus ticket booths make for excellent backdrops and can be the focal point for photos. You can put smaller props such as a magician’s hat and clown wigs for people to put on when they take memorable photos.



4. Circus Performances


What better way to incorporate the theme that’s about a circus than with circus performances of your own?

5. Games and Prizes


Include games and prizes at your party that also revolve around the theme. You can choose classic carnival games, such as bobbing for apples and sack races,if you’ve got a great space. For smaller children, you put a carnival twist on the regular party games—for instance, instead of pinning the tail on the donkey, children can place the red nose on a cutout of a clown.
