Circus Party Animal Centerpiece

Party, Styling, Text and Photos by Confetti Sunshine


Have you jumped on board with the party animal craze yet? We have, and we’re loving it! These party animals not only have their own hats, but they also have their own bouquet of colorful balloons.

These party animals make a great addition to a dessert table, craft table, side table or just about anywhere.circus-party-animal-center-piece


  • Balloon Time Helium Tank
  • 5-inch latex balloons
  • String
  • Colorful paper
  • 2-inch circle punch
  • Scissors
  • Gold tinsel
  • Low heat glue gun
  • Circus animal figurines


  1. Start by cutting a 2-inch circle out of a piece of colorful paper. Cut the circle in half and roll each half into a cone. Secure the cone with your glue gun. Carefully glue some gold tinsel around the bottom of the party hat, trimming any excess tinsel from the hat.
  2. Use a small amount of glue to secure the hat onto the head of one of the circus animal figurines.
  3. Next, use the Balloon Time Helium Tank to inflate three 5-inch balloons. Tie string to the end of the balloons and tie the balloons onto the party animal. The small balloons won’t float for very long, so we recommend you fill them right before the party starts.
