Medieval Renaissance Birthday Invitations
The fun design features a couple of knights on horseback involved in a good old-fashioned jousting match. There are antique looking hinges and a door lock with fun fonts and antiquated language.
They work well for any age birthday up to and including adults and they can be used for either a girl or boy or should I say a wench or a knight? Princess, Queen, Prince, or King? I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's the perfect birthday invitation for a renaissance fair lover, or for anyone who loves history and especially the medieval time period.

Custom Invites Can Be Personalized For Any Year and Age
Like a fine wine or Scotch Whiskey, this funny vintage birthday invite looks like a bottle label and says "Aged to Perfection" with the year of their birth.
Vintage Aged To Perfection Birthday Invitations
The simple chic black and red on white design uses vintage-style lettering, elegant scrolls and its unique bracket shape to create a bottle label effect.
Shown here it's being used for a surprise party for someone born in 1974 but you can customize all of the text to say whatever you need and change the year to match the birthday boy or girl's date of birth.
They measure 5" x 7" and come complete with a standard white envelope.

Circus Carnival Birthday Cake and Party Food Ideas
I can't think of a more fun party idea than a carnival circus theme. You can easily recreate the atmosphere with lots of fun decorations, simple foods, party games and a super fantastic cake.
The cake shown above was obviously created by a professional decorator and if you have the money for that sort of thing, that's certainly a good way to go but if you look at the way the baker decorated this, I think you can recreate a simpler version at home using either fondant or frosting, round candy or gum balls and some colorful animal cookies.
Another option would be to purchase something like the really affordable cupcake holder shown below. That way, you can bake your own cupcakes, decorate them however you like, and they'll still match your circus theme and look GREAT on the dessert table.
It's easy to decorate a room for the party too!
A visit to your local party store or a quick search online will garner all kinds of cute circus party decorations and supplies. I found things like a red and white striped tablecloth skirt, a cardboard cut-out ticket booth, all kinds of balloons, colorful streamers and even a standup circus photo op set-up.
Serve simple foods like hot-dogs and hamburgers and be sure to have plenty of pop corn and cotton candy on hand.
Fun carnival games can be set up and played by all. I found this board at Pinterest just filled with wonderful ideas for homemade carnival games.
You might hand out tickets to the winners of each game instead of prizes and then have a raffle at the end of the party where the winning tickets get a neat circus-theme prize.
You can also include a clown as entertainment but keep in mind that some young children might not find him/her so funny. It might be a better idea to use face paint on each of the guests, turning everyone into a funny character instead.
No matter how big or small you pan it, I hope you have the greatest time at your own private circus carnival.
