Here is the center pieces I made for the tables. The pin wheels are from the Dollar Tree, they were 3 in a package. I used my buckets form my scrapbooking table (so free) and I got a couple bags of peanuts from the dollar store also. I poked the pinwheels into Styrofoam circles, I used a 40% off coupon at joanns, I got 2 for 2.70.
Total for each one- $2.85 (the Styrofoam killed me, need to find something cheaper next time) Here are the goodie boxes I made, I got the circus stickers, boxes and suckers from Oriental trading company. The other toys our form Party City and I had a spend $30 get $10 off coupons. So I bought several things at 2.99 each before coupon. I then used my shredder and shredded 5 colors of scrapbooking paper I bought on sale at Joanns (4 for $1). I have notices that most of the stuff I was buying comes out in 12s so we are just lucky we know enough kids to make up the 12.
Each box ran around $2 each. I have 12 boxes.
Lots more still to do- Put red stripes on 2 white table clothes, food shopping and set up the paper Ferris wheel I got from Hobby Lobby. And I haven't even started thinking about a games, eeekkk!
