This awesome circus tent replica is shared by Vanessa Bell of De Su Mama. This particular circus tent was created for a big top baby shower, but you could easily do the same for a birthday, carnival, or any event that calls for a big top. Alternating red and white, disposable tablecloths are all you need to create a similar design in your party space.
