I spent a huge chunk of my March with these two crazies. Niña choraled us to plan and style her nephew’s 7th birthday party. Bren was really into Disney’s CARS, so coming up with a theme wasn’t a problem.
We mostly kept to the color red, and the checkered flag.
Niña made the cones, checkered flags and traffic lights herself. Pam helped her out with the race track on the floor. We filled the kids table with CARS-inspired hot wheels, CARS coloring books and crayons.
We made sure to order a CARS cake. To keep in theme, the cake just had to be Red Velvet.
Niña and her hubby Pete made these totally adorable cardboard box CARS characters. They were later used for a Parent+Child relay race.
We covered these paper maché letters with checkered print gift wrapper.
Each guest got a VIP Pit Crew Pass. Of course, Bren was the Crew Chief!
Niña came up with this ingenious idea of having a pedestal, perfect for a photo op! We took photos of the relay race winners.
Pam was in charge of our Refueling Station. That’s just the CARS way of calling the dessert buffet.
Chocolate-dipped oreos were GUIDO-reos. We also had red velvet cake pops dipped in milk and white chocolate.
Radiator Springs Waterfalls was the fondue. Mater Oil was iced tea.
Nuts N’ Bolts was a mix of nuts and chocolates.
Rusteze Krispies plated in a checkered pattern. Hudson Hornet’s Dipsticks were a huge hit as well.
Lastly, we had Luigi’s Black Tires (chocolate doughnuts).
If you want us to plan and style your next party, let me know!
I also design invitations and printables. Send me a message!
Birthday Express awarded us a Best Birthday badge for this party!
