Then I packaged them in little cello bags and topped them with a coordinating bag topper. Now, I wish I could take credit for actually making the cookies but I can't. For the actual manufacture of these tasty favors, I looked to the good bakers at Gumdrop Cookie Shop in Brooklyn, NY.
Then I made custom party favor bags for all the kiddos, using the circle motifs from the French Circus printable party, colored card stock and scrapbook paper in pretty patterns. Inside each bag, we put a beach ball, a cookie and a bottle of bubbles.
And since the guest of honor can't be without a wardrobe to match his party, I found this adorable Lion Ringmaster shirt on Etsy. The store, Lil Cubby, even custom-made this adorable party hat to match.
Of course, the Kid only wore that for a few seconds - not even long enough to snap a photo. But it looks super cute in this shadow box/shelf thingy - it's destined to be hung in his playroom...someday. Unfortunately, when I went back to Etsy to find a link to the store for this blog, they were no longer in business. But I guess that's how it goes with handmade stuff - you've got to grab it while you can!
