Nikka, of Triple M Good Parties, brought the town of Radiator Springs (from the movie, CARS) to life at her son’s 3rd birthday party!  With so many cute references to cars and all things vintage, Nikka took this party to another level- and, all the while, stayed true to the characters and storyline straight from the movie!

Nikka added so many touches- notice all of the display items that are “aged” to perfection!

I love all of the “tires” that Nikka incorporated into the party in such creative ways- like the doughnuts on paper straws above~ and the stack of doughnut tires below…

And, the favors were a perfect replica of tires- made of soap!

And, cupcakes in jars~

 What a fabulously creative party, Nikka!  You always include so many wonderful details- thank you for sharing those ideas with us!!

Birthday Party Ideas for a Teen- How to Celebrate a TEEN

Wow! My daughter turned into a teen!  Sometimes it can be tricky to decide what to do to celebrate this milestone.  I wanted to share with you some ideas that may help if you want to mark the occasion but also keep it low-key.  At first, my daughter wanted to have a very large sleepover to celebrate.  I loved it that she wanted to include everyone she knew, but laughed at the thought of trying to corral close to 30 tweens and teens! So, I told her she could have a little, bitty, teeny sleepover and her “real” party could be bubble soccer (which she had been begging to do at this huge sleepover she was planning ).  So, realizing the play on words with a “teeny” party, we went with the TEENY theme and used as many miniature things as we could.  It was such a fun theme and the ideas could go on forever…but this is what we decided on for her teeny, little sleepover.
