If you’re looking for an amazing book club read that’s perfect for October, you should pick up The Night Circus (affiliate link). Here’s a few things that we did at our Night Circus Book Club.
We were greeted with this chalkboard sign with a quote straight from the book
Then we saw a table full of food with black and white streamers to make it look like the inside of a tent.
For ambiance, she had candle warmers with a caramel scent to make it smell like the circus. Frostbeard Studio (affiliate link with coupon for 10% off) has one specifically designed to smell just like Le Cirque Des Reves from the book. It’s amazing! I bought one yesterday.
We had caramel apple cupcakes, quiches, spinach turnovers, Hershey’s Hugs, and of course caramel popcorn. The Night Circus has a lot of sweets so the quiche and turnovers were for balance. And the Hershey’s hugs looked like the striped circus tent!
For drinks we had some Raspberry Lemonade with black and white drinking straws. Plus the raspberries added a little pop of red to the black and white!
We all had a great time! Everyone dressed in black and white with little hints of red :)
There are a whole bunch of discussion questions from the publisher’s website. Here are a few more that the host had:
- What was your favorite tent?
- If you could make a tent as a love letter of sorts to your spouse, what would the tent have in it?
- Could you imagine the clock?
You can also check out my Google Diary for the Night Circus to see real locations from the book and the inspiration for the book.
