CARS Birthday

First off I don't know what happened with these pictures and why they are all out of order and some are sideways, they were not like that when I uploaded them, so I am sorry that they are all funky. Anyway, my son LOVES the movie CARS, and so for his second birthday that was the theme that we went with.
For our party favors we made chocolate covered ores with sprinkles and attached a tag that said Thank You on it. I must admit I would much rather eat oreo's this way, they were delicious!
The food table. I kept this pretty simple because I knew all the food would cover any attempts to decorate so I just took a black tablecloth and yellow stripes of paper and made a road. I also found a picture of Flo's V8 Cafe and had it sitting on the table.
This is the wall behind the food table. I made the mini racing flags our of some leftover fabric from another project.
All the party favors ready to go.
I saw THIS idea one day when I was browsing for ideas for this party and I fell in love with them, they are so stinkin cute!! Although mine did not turn out near as cute as hers!!
The BIG Mater balloon that we just had to have.
The Birthday Boy's Special Seat!!
The sign that welcomed our guests to the party. It says "Welcome to Radiator Springs Gateway To Jaxon's Party." I was originally going to have it outside by the road but the weather changed those plans real fast.
The Birthday Boy's shirt that I made for him with all of his favorite characters.
The Birthday Banner!! I love how this project turned out and it was so super simple!! I just printed off the size of triangle that I wanted and then cut out my fabric. I zig-zaged along the edges of the fabric, cut the letters out of red fabric and used wonder under (my favorite thing ever!!!) to attach them to the triangles. To attach everything together I just used double fold bias tape and it worked perfectly!!!

We had Motoroil (grape kool-aid) and Antifreeze (lime Kool-aid) with our dinner.
Luigi's Leaning Tower of Tires, made from mini chocolate donuts.

Birthday Board

For my son's second birthday I wanted someway to display pictures of him from the past year, after racking my brain I ran across this. I did change a few things though, first off I used a scrap piece of 4x4 that I had from another project, and I used wooden skewers to hold my pictures up. I am planning on using this every year for his birthday so I made the pictures easy to take off. I love how it turned out and my son was so excited to see all the different pictures of himself, plus I love seeing how much he has changed over the past year.

CARS Birthday Sneak Peek

My little boy turned two today!! I can hardly believe it!! I am going to give you a sneak peek of the FUN party that we had today, so be on the lookout for the rest of the party (hopefully tomorrow) when I have a chance to catch up on some sleep!!

I think my very first try at Fondant turned out pretty darn good!!
