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.
