Planning a Cars party can be fun and easy once you know what you want to do. Here are some Cars party ideas from my son's 3rd birthday party.
After all of the hard work and anticipation, my son's Cars-themed third birthday party was (mostly) a success. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't perfect. These things never are, of course. Overall it was fun, though, and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves; almost everybody, at least... The star of the party wasn't feeling very well, and retreated inside to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes throughout a large portion of the party. Sigh.
You think that you are planning all of this for the birthday boy, and then the big day arrives, and the birthday boy shows no interest in his party. Then you start to wonder, "Have I been planning all of this, then, for me?!?!?!"
Luckily, the other kids seemed impressed and really enjoyed themselves.
Despite all of the work that goes into these sorts of parties, I love planning them. In fact, I often get told that I should do it as a career :) ; but as much as I love doing it, I think it would drive me crazy if I were to do it full time.
So, where do I begin?
Here are some of the Cars party ideas I used...
I was lucky enough to find a local store that carried black and white checkered tablecloth, and used that for decorating both the kid’s table, and the buffet food table. You can see that the centerpiece for the kid’s table was an inflatable tire that I filled with (Sally’s cozy) cones filled with popcorn. The cones were just quickly thrown together by making cones of orange colored paper that were taped to hold their shape.
