my son's 4th birthday party- Cars theme!


Last month, my little boy turned 4!
He had his heart set on a Cars birthday party,
so a Cars party he had!

The invitation we mailed out:



This dry erase board was perfect to stick on the front door with a welcome greeting to his guests. It came from the dollar store & had a magnet on the back...




Some decorations & some of the food...




The snacky foods & the drinks were set out on the table & we had lots of pizza that we ordered & a platter of veggies & dip in the kitchen for lunch.




On the table we had some of his fave snacks:
popcorn twists, pretzels, chips, and popcorn in the cute Cars popcorn containers.




The Cars posters came from a dollar store, we had some balloons, and blocks on the table are some wood blocks that I painted white & used mod podge to add some photos on...

I tried my best to use things that were black, white, or red in colour, metal bowls, and of course Cars themed party supplies.




For the canvas, I used an 8 x 10 copy of the photo of my son beside Lightning McQueen & Tow Mater from out trip to Disneyland a couple months earlier.

I just used mod podge to adhere it to a canvas...



For the little bottles of soda pop, I added Cars wrapping paper over the labels...




.... I also did the same to the bottled water. (And to the large bottles of pop.)






My little guy was totally uninterested in posing for me before the party, but her was pretty excited to be four and to have most of his family here to celebrate with him! (This will be the last year that we only do a family party since he'll be in school next year.)




I got this huge cake from the bakery & he just loved it! (He also liked the strawberries in the middle.)




I didn't take a photo of the entire table when the treats were out. But I had some oreos (black & white), and some red candies, some Cars sugar cookies...




.... and of course some mini chocolate donuts- "spare tires".




For the little treat bags I picked up some Cars things:

-The juice boxes I found when we were in Anaheim. I have never seen them up here.




Each bag had a juice box, pack of gummies, activity book, sticker book, and one of those things that you blow.




The bags all ready to go...




I had fun putting the party together for my little guy. He loves having a theme & has already picked what he wants for his party next year. So I have started picking up the odd thing when I come across stuff that would be perfect. And if her did change his mind, which knowing him he won't, the stuff could be used for something else. :)

So in case you're new to this blog, here are the links to the other parties I have done for my kids so far:

  11. And even the best primer made specifically to stick to laminate doesn't stick all that great. Plus you have to rough sand the kitchen countertops before you prime, meaning you can never really strip it and leave it plain again.S

  12. Whoooo! The kid must be a huge fan of Disney, eh? Seeing the Cars and Toy Story characters coming together is pretty exciting. I’m sure being able to see his favorite characters all around his lovely home made the special day of this birthday boy truly remarkable. =)
