The table had been set up to let the kids play and explore different types of fast cars and muscle cars from the 1960's as they arrived. We brought along Hotwheels cars from our own personal collection and I picked up a few packages of little pit crew (think green army men with gas cans & wrenches) sprinkled through out the room. A few books were set out as well including Cars of the 1970's- they were intended for the kids but I found the grown up guys hogging them.
Pit Passes" that were personalized for each of our guests who RSVP'd using a photograph that their mom or dads sent to me via email. The passes were placed in plastic sleeves and hung on checkered flag lanyards. After the party each everyone got a $5 'credit card' to enjoy games in the arcade- and it was really important to me that they get a unique and practical party favor- alas the checkered flag wallets! They're perfect for Yu-gi-oh cards, a few hard earned allowance dollars, and business cards from the local RC hobby shop (ask me how I know?) If you're looking for a simple boys wallet tutorial- I found this one from Noodlehead.
personalized Trashn2Tees tshirt and hot rod necklace from 3VsKidsJewels on Etsy. It was fun to take a theme we really enjoy and run with it- from designing the cupcakes and tshirts to sewing over 10 wallets in the middle of my holiday rush. Next year birthday crafting will take place in September! Everything came together really well and I know his birthday party was a success. Please let me know if you have any questions- I would be happy to answer them.
