Jake’s 3rd Birthday Party

I hope everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays. Christmas and the New Year always come and go by so quickly. Jake’s birthday is in the beginning of January, so that also adds another event to the mix. Jake absolutely loves cars, trucks, trains (basically anything that moves!) so I decided to throw a “Cars" party for him this year.

When guests first arrived, there were VIP pit passes for everyone.

The tables had a small balloon bouquet on each one (I forgot to move the clip down on the balloon bouquet before I took the picture). For the kids, there were several different sheets of cars stickers, cars coloring sheets, and crayons on each table.

I originally planned to make food for the party, but instead decided to make things easy and order pizza from our favorite pizza place. Here is the back drop and table that the pizza was served on (the tablecloths were red, they just look orange in the photos):

Next to the food table was the drink and dessert table. We had sweet and unsweet tea as well as water. I also ordered cupcakes from Publix (love their baked goods!) and added sprinkles that I purchased from Bake it Pretty.

Continuing with the red, black, and yellow color scheme, I bought red and yellow cups and used black plastic straws. I wasn’t able to get a picture of the back of the flags but they were black and white checkered.

I also wasn’t able to get a picture of it at the party, but we had two small Cars bowling sets for the kids to play with. They had a blast playing with them.

Every year I say I am going to make sure and get some good pictures of everything set-up before the guests arrive, and every year I wish I had taken more. Overall the party went really well! Jake had a great time celebrating his birthday with everyone! He was on the go all day, so it was difficult to get any pictures of him but here is one of the birthday boy:

Hard to believe he is already 3!
