Fun Circus-Themed Event Ideas

The Starlight Children's Foundation hosted its Starlight Gala, sponsored by Toys "R" Us, at Toronto's Fairmont Royal York Hotel on April 6. With the goal of raising money for sick or injured children, organizers created a whimsical bash filled with circus-inspired ideas. From flowers in a popcorn container vase to carnival games and a Ferris wheel filled with cupcakes, here's a look at how the foundation breathed vibrant life into a popular theme—which, incidentally, is perfectly suited to summertime functions, including corporate parties, picnics, and more. 

Dinner tables were topped with miniature Ferris wheels that held cupcakes topped with colorful frosting.
