Kara's Party Ideas Race Car 1st Birthday Party | Kara's Party Ideas

I just love the creativity that went into this RACE CAR 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Jaclyn Douma of Sugar N Spice. This party is any little car lovers dream!

This is what Jaclyn had to say about the party- “We just celebrated my son’s first birthday and both my husband and I are huge racing fans so it only seemed fitting for the theme to be race cars! Decorating and crafting is a huge passion of mine as is cooking and hosting parties, so the entire process was such a pleasure for me. My brother who is an exercise/hiking fanatic told me I may have overdone it (which I disagree) so when I replied with, ‘This is a passion of mine, so just imagine, the hours that went into decorating as one big long HIKE’! He said he had never thought of it that way in which he then replied with ‘Job well done sis!’ All of the decorations, food and photography were done by me and my company Sugar N Spice. The only exception is the chocolate covered pretzels from Chaparral Homemade Ice Cream.

Included in the party was the “autograph” station where I had a white t-shirt for everyone to sign, along with a scrapbook I made of my son’s first year. Next was “The Garage” which was a popcorn favor bar filled with “Dipsticks” – Chocolate Covered Pretzels, “Nuts & Bolts” – Peanuts, Orange Slices & M&M’s, & “Spare Tires” – Chocolate Mini Donuts. Followed by The Garage was “Pit Row” where we served all of our food and my husband BBQ’d in “The Infield” where we set up our Family Flag, ice chests and chairs. Finally was “The Winner’s Circle” where I displayed my son’s birthday present which was a remote control car along with all the cupcakes for the guests.

Everyone had a great time, including the kiddos as they raced up and down the “road” through our living room that I made from black vinyl table cloths. I’m already looking forward to planning next years party!”
