Kara's Party Ideas Car Themed Boy 2nd Birthday Party Planning Ideas Decorations Cake

This modern CAR THEMED SECOND BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Melissa of The Cake Boutique.

Some of my favorite ideas in this car themed party are:

  • The popcorn served in cupcake liners since smaller portions were needed
  • The black favor bags made to resemble a road
  • The fruit kebabs threaded onto plastic straws- a safer option for little guests
  • and MORE!

This is what Melissa said about planning the party-

“My son, Finley, turned two and we threw him a car themed party (his two favourite words are Cake and Car), styled around his birthday gift, a red ride-on retro tin car. We wanted it to be bright and clean, so stuck to a red colour palette with accents of blue. Grey chevrons provided a fun geometric backdrop which we repeated in the cake design. The gorgeous paperie was custom made to incorporate the theme. Guests enjoyed a variety of motor themed sweets and treats, including vanilla bean cupcakes, Mint Chocolate marshmallow tires, Jelly Fuel, Nuts and Bolts popcorn, Road sign chocolates and custom made Belgian chocolate cars.

The conservatory was converted into a mini race track with toy cars and ride-on vehicles for the kids to play with and the ceiling was strung with giant balloons in the main party colours.

The tiny guests were given a custom made Road party bag filled with toy cars, car shaped chocolates and a car bath squirter.”
