Vintage Chevy + Auto Garage Party Details:This is what Virginia said about planning/styling the party-
“My husbands birthday was soon to come and I asked him to give me a theme he went from classic cars, to trucks, to just Chevy trucks. I have to admit, I had a lot of research to do before I could fully map out what I wanted his party to look like. Obviously Chevys are from the 50s 60s so I knew I wanted a bit of vintage within his theme, however I wanted something clean and classy, after all, he was turning 33 right? So I created printables that were in red and navy blue.
As you walked to our house, you were greeted with 2 tires and a dollar tree license plate that I purchased and created a welcome sign to tie in the center, along with some pennant flags that I used on our front door.
The entire party was hosted out of our garage-YES! After all, it was a vintage garage party right? However, I made it extra special by adding 2 large 72 round tables with poly linens and beautiful white garden chairs. I used a little bit of burlap around 2 small tires, added the custom Alfonso 33 logo I created on both sides and placed in the center of each table. To provide a classy place setting I used red plate chargers, under these fabulous custom plates I ordered with my husbands theme. Everyone loved these! I am recently obsessed with the silver plastic ware, they look like the real deal. No disposable cups were used, I simply purchased several mason jars and added navy blue and white paper straws. I also created and placed a scratch off with one winner from each table!
Sweets Table: I posted several requests for FREE tires to our neighborhood community page and believe me, youd be amazed at how many neighbors will love you for taking old tires off their hands! My fabulous husband did the dirty work and cleaned the lights out of all these old tires to leave them super shiny for me. I found a white Ikea table top to add over the tires. Again, I wanted that clean look with that garage feel, so thats why I just HAD to have the real thing like tires. I also wrapped cans of corn with these super cute oil/gas labels I purchased. I added our delicious cake pops to 2 small red metal tool boxes.
Decor: I was inspired by a fabulous party posted on Karas, where this fabulous mom used dollar tree pizza pans to add her garage signs rather than buying the real thing that usually costs about $15-$30 each! I created quite a few for the fireplace, photo booth backdrop, coat closet, etc.! These were pretty fun to make, however I glued them with Mod Podge to the pizza pan, then added another layer of Mod Podge on top to give it that shiny coat! Tip: If you use a damp napkin, you can make these look a bit more torn up and not so perfect so it gives it that vintage look! I also bought a large cardboard letter A and hot glued several dollar tree wrenches to add a little bit of decor in our living room, after all, the party was mainly hosted in the garage!
I had so much fun creating this party for my husband to celebrate with a few of our closest friends”!
