Circus Day Table

Posted by christmascandy (My Page) on

Some websites list May 19 as Circus Day because that is the day The Ringling Brothers Circus originated in 1884.

I gathered some items I already had, bought some treats, and found some more things at the TS.

I found the Ringmaster doll at ARC last night, 50% off, woohoo!! I had the elephant cup as Cody likes elephants, and I bought the candy and animal crackers for the table.

I had the red tablecloth, white chargers, blue placemats, blue goblets, red flatware, and yellow striped edge salad plates. I found the yellow dinner plates, blue/white striped napkins, and the floral china at Habitat TS today.
The floral china plates, and cups and saucers were in a wicker picnic basket set with tablecloth/napkins, flatware, and the china. It is labled Made In England, Brexton. I got the whole picnic set for $5.20 with my senior discount.

I chose the bright colors for the table as they seemed rather fun and circus-like to me.

The Pottery Barn popcorn bowls were a TS find last year.

Jeanne, I looked for a clown, but the only ones I saw at the TS just weren't cute! DH and I already ate the popcorn, but the other treats are waiting for DGK's.

Nana, I'll post a picture of the picnic basket once I disassemble this table. I couldn't believe that I found a doll to use as a Ringmaster! I was looking for a clown, but didn't find one of those. I bought the elephant cup a couple of years ago when Cody was really into elephants. It is a souvenir from the circus.

Jane, I looked for those marshmallow circus peanuts, but didn't find them and also it was late when I was at the store and I couldn't find any regular peanuts either, and I was too tired to hunt for them, so just went without. I had plans to make ticket place cards, but didn't get that done either!! So, I just went with what I had, because I'll be changing it in a few days anyway, LOL.

Thanks ladies!! I can always count on you for some uplifting words and encouragement. I don't know what I'd do without you, you're such a great support group.


RE: Circus Day Table

ONLY You could find a ringmaster doll...and at 50% off no less. ;o) You are something else, Girl. Not to mention the idea to create a circus table! Gotta love it.

I have a feeling that ALL of us could come shop your house and still leave you plenty to decorate with. I swear sometimes I think you pull stuff out of a magician's hat for your table themes. LOL. I'd sure love to come visit

hugs, Karen
