“Life is a Crazy Circus” Birthday Celebration in Napa Valley

circus party

While our next post wasn’t a wedding (it was a 30th/40th combined birthday party for a husband + wife and 50 of their closest friends!), it can certainly act as incredible inspiration for an extraordinary wedding or event! Photographed by the talented Steve Cowell and designed by one of our faves, Jesi Haack, the main feature of this soirée was the Vau De Vire Society, a professional group of circus performers based out of San Fran. There was a contortionist, stilt walkers, human statues and a ton more. Not to mention beautiful details + delicious-looking fare + treats! Sounds like such an amazingly fun night, doesn’t it?! I know that circus + carnival themed weddings are always a popular choice amongst couples who are looking to do something a bit different, so be sure to take note of all the fab details incorporated into this super fun bash!

The circus theme was not just picked at random. In fact, the couple is pregnant with their fourth child, which will soon give them 4 kids under the age of 4 years, hence they’ve been caught saying “Life is a Crazy Circus”. Such a cute idea to incorporate into your celebration! :)

And this marquee-style seating chart is one of my absolute favorite details from the day. Wouldn’t this be great for a wedding, too?!

The tables were dressed with awesome emerald green sequin table drapes from La Tavola topped with pretty florals by Casey of Krista Jon!
