Make Your Event “The Greatest Show on Earth!”

The Greatest Showman HeaderThe Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman as the legendary P.T. Barnum, premiered on December 8, 2017 with all the glamour and style worthy of the Greatest Show on Earth. The musical film tells the story of the world-famous circus and rise of P.T. Barnum from his humble beginnings as the son of a tailor, to becoming the owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. With the movie’s success, we’re seeing that its original music and circus regalia is inspiring a fun trend in party and event themes. Here are just a few ways to incorporate circus inspiration into your next event:

Issue invitations to your event with a “circus ticket”. Encourage guests to join in the fun by wearing bright clothing with large polka dots, bow ties, and tulle skirts. Amusement Masters red and white stripped carnival tents added to the mix are an inviting way for guests to immerse themselves in the experience. Use colorful balloons everywhere, and incorporate performers like jugglers, gymnasts and clowns that add entertainment and engagement to the event’s ambiance.Amusement Masters Carnival Tents

Rent an Amusement Masters snow cone or cotton candy machine. Kids love to create custom snow cones by mixing flavors and spiked snow cones are also a fun twist for adults. Adding cotton candy in fun, fruity flavors is an affordable circus themed treat. 

Add to event staffing, an old-fashioned lemonade vendor in a red striped jacket and bow tie. This vendor serving lemon and limeade drinks with fresh fruit in cocktail glasses is ideal for a circus-themed bar and bat mitzvahs, quinceañera or sweet 16 parties. Use stripped chair covers, and beautiful Lipizzaner stallions or Tennessee walking horses in the event’s circus themed decor.

Watch guests as they enjoy a root beer float bar, hosted by the circus strongman or a wild animal trainer. They’ll enjoy unique creations like Mountain Dew and ice cream with pop rocks. Fresh pretzels with toppings like Jalapeno and chili can be a fresh take on the old favorite.Amusement Masters Concessions Trio

If your event is for adults, including circus themed cocktails is the perfect addition. Substitute the traditional bartender uniform with top hat, bow tie, and bright sequined vest while he or she shakes up ‘Gigi Gourmet Cotton Candy‘ martinis. Serve elevated circus themed treats like mini shrimp corndogs and sriracha-lime popcorn. 

 From games to rides to concessions, we have so many fun and exciting ideas for incorporating circus inspiration into your event. Connect with us, and let’s get to planning!
