Truck Party

For nearly two months, everything in my boy's world revolved around his "truck party".  He had no problems deciding what kind of party he wanted for his birthday and he was one excited little guy.  I never imagined that I'd have so much fun planning a truck party.

The Invites:

{Sorry - had to scratch out all the personal info}



The Menu:
Sandwiches - mini ones made with homemade rolls
Car shaped cheese
Pasta Salad with wheels
Potato Salad
Truck-shaped watermelon with grapes as the wheels.



For dessert we had chocolate cupcakes with ice cream & truck shaped cookies:

I had more cookies than cupcakes, so that's why we put some cookies in a pail.  (For a tutorial on how to make the lollipop cookies go HERE & HERE.)


At Ikea, I found a very large plant pot that was the same shade of green as my polka-dotted green tablecloth, so we used the pot for sodas & waters.  Centerpieces for tables were easy cause I just used trucks from the toy room.  If you happen to be in the market for cones, I checked around online and the best deal on cones was at Target.



Oh, almost forgot .... Disney's Car movie fruit snacks in a dump truck:


My hubby had the job of making truck music CD's.  Here are some songs that we included on our CD's in no particular order and possibly a lot of un-official song titles, but I think you get the idea.

  • Freeway of Love - Aretha Franklin
  • Fun, Fun, Fun - Beach Boys

That looks like so much fun! I have a feeling our truck stage isn't nearly finished - I'll hopefully get to do some of this cute stuff next year! Love all of your ideas.
