4th BIRTHDAY RACE CAR PARTY

You may or may not be wondering where I've been the past few days ...and the answer is simple and exciting! This past weekend we celebrated my son's 4th birthday! And I made sure to enjoy every single moment with him. So today I wanted to share some photos from his special day and tell you all about my DIY party ideas for his super cute race car/hot wheels party I planned for him!
I call him my little car connoisseur! He knows them all! And is obsessed with Hot Wheels! 
Since he is my summer baby I wanted to make sure to celebrate as any summer baby should!
With a pool party! The kids truly enjoyed themselves in the spray park, playground and pools.
I pretty much made everything myself, doing simple and easy but still cute little DIY projects all pulled from Pinterest and/or friends!
...
The centerpieces were real car oil bottles that we filled with sand and rocks as weight and
I made the little custom street and route signs myself and put them in the oil bottles.
I loved how these came out! Such a cute and inexpensive idea!
...
A great idea and totally trending party "thing" is chalk everything!
So I got chalkboard stickers at Hobby Lobby and placed those as signs for some of the food and snacks. I did everything from "spare tires" aka Oreos, to "nuts and bolts" aka party mix and of course I made a sign that said "fuel up!" for the beverage station.
I also had a "b" sign that I used as a cute memorabilia and had guests sign it with their wishes for B!
(Thanks Vero for the idea!)
Can you believe I paid $2.49 for it at Hobby Lobby? Always check the clearance section!
I got it because it looked like a tire and this was one of my favorite things from that day!
...
The orange cones that you see on the tables and the snack table were actually the party favors for each kid. I got this idea from a Instagram friend! I filled the cones with fun goodies, fruit snacks and gold fish! The babies got a duckie and applesauce:)
...
I used two Bed Bath & Beyond gift boxes as the stand for the cake (which I kept extra simple this year and just got one at Wegman's) - I got the idea of the gifts boxes from another friend and they worked great! I simply wrapped them in my preferred wrapping paper and voila!
 ...
I also bought the t-shirts you see on my husband and B online...
B's says "PLAYS WITH CARS" and my husband's says "STILL PLAYS WITH CARS" I knew I had to have them the minute I saw them! I love love loved them! And they were a total hit at the party!
...
The day went amazing. It wasn't super humid as it should have been for an August day but that actually made the afternoon really comfortable and nice. Every single thing went so smoothly and I was so happy to see that sweet smile on my baby's face. Planning his birthdays is always so fun, a little stressful but I truly love making and planning these things!
