PARTY DETAILS, as told by Abby…
My son is completely obsessed with cars, so I planned and designed his 3rd birthday party
around race cars. I wanted something fun, that incorporated unique elements. There are so many highlights but I especially liked the check in counter where all the racers could check in; pick up their helmets and pit passes.
I also especially loved all the little cute details on the dessert table. Jade from Whimsical baker was simply amazing to work with. We had pretzel rods shaped like race cars, cake pops monogrammed with P (for Preston). I couldn’t get over the amazing cake topper she
I also incorporated these super fun car food boxes, that I served fries and chicken fingers in. The kids absolutely loved it. The food boxes were mini replicas of corvettes, mustangs and cameros, a few of the cars found in the “Fast and Furious” movie franchise.
The amazing stationery, from the backdrop to the thank you labels on the gable boxes from Bushel and Peck paper just tied everything in.
The birthday boy and his friends were beside themselves with excitement.
