Step right up and be amazed as you get transported back through time with this fabulous Vintage Circus Baby Shower!
This extraordinary Vintage Circus Baby Shower, styled by Charlene of Chakoda Design, is definitely a sight to behold! With wild animals and vintage circus posters, this party definitely made the guests feel like they’re watching the greatest show on Earth!
The giant animal statues were dressed up in amazingly detailed circus animal attire. Matching the bright red and gold decor scattered throughout the shower, the bright tailcoats, scarves, clown collars and neck ruffles, and various types of hats adorning the giant animal statues definitely brings the vintage wild animal circus theme to life.
The wild animal statues took the show. From elephants to giraffes to bears to tigers, there are so many adorable animals in this party! Our faves are the baby elephant blowing bubbles in the tub and the two bears greeting guests on the red carpet! How cool is that?
Of course, a travelling wild animal circus won’t be complete with an inviting backdrop and red curtains. The white and red ruffled parasols hanging from the ceiling also add a nice, magical touch to the venue.
The tables and chairs are kept simple, just plain black and white with a little red velvet box stage for the Ferris wheel candle holders. This makes the rest of the red and gold decorations stand out even more. It was truly a sight to behold. The Edison bulb string lights also add a touch of whimsy to the place as it beautifully lights up the large floor area – perfect for dancing! The mom-to-be and her beautiful family all had custom attire made for the grand celebration too.
This spectacular baby shower is definitely one that we’re sure the guests loved attending. What a wonderful way to celebrate the start of a new life!

Wow, this party was just enchanting and built to delight the crowd! According to Charlene of Chakoda Designs, they watched the film The Greatest Showman, which is the inspiration for this baby shower. They made sure to watch the movie multiple times, so they could get all of the details perfect! And it definitely shows!
The amazing level of detail in this party is spectacular. Our favorites are the adorable costumes for the animal props. We also really like the Ferris wheel candle holders as the centerpieces for the tables – very whimsical! Lastly, we absolutely love one of Charlene’s favorite details too: the baby elephant in the metal tub having a bubble bath and blowing actual bubbles! It’s all very magical and nostalgic!
