The Greatest Showman Birthday Party [Under $100]

Frannie just turned 5 and to celebrate she wanted a Greatest Showman themed birthday party. It is hands down her favorite movie and soundtrack and she has watched it so many times she could probably recite most of it to you.

We held her party at her local dance studio which was fun because the instructor assigned to her party was able to create a little routine to one of the songs from the movie and have the kids perform for their parents.

I wanted to share some of the things we did for her party as of all of the parties we’ve ever thrown I think this was the simplest and also likely the lowest cost. Without including the studio fee of $100, the party cost us less than $100, yet included all of those fun and special details I like to include for parties.


Birthday Invite from Etsy $16 & then I send the .jpeg to Walgreens. Most of the time you can get 5×7 prints made for around $1 with a coupon code.


  • Barnum’s Animal Crackers  [24 for $38 on Amazon or around $1/box at Target]
  • I typically order cupcakes from our Target bakery as they can customize colors and flavors as desired. $17
  • I think everyone who throws parties needs a Cupcake stand [Mine is Martha Stewart brand from Macy’s that I purchased years ago but this one is similar.]

  • Clown Noses $6.99 [I displayed these in a clear glass jar on a cake stand, things I already owned but could use to display them.]

Not pictured: Temporary Tattoos   $4.70 I bought these for the kids to choose before the party began while we waited for all the friends to arrive. Super simple little treat that takes up some time.
