Race Car Details:

This is what Renee said about planning the party- “My son, Colin, turned 8, and we threw him a race car themed party. He has enjoyed Hot Wheels since he was 2 years old, when he wouldn’t wear pants without pockets, because he needed a place to stash the cars that went with him everywhere.

Colin also used to think that the exhaust pipes on cars were “Fire Holes”, and that fire shot out of them (much like a rocket) when they were driven. For this reason I focused less on the traditional checkered flags, and more on flames as a theme. Flame fabric and printables were used throughout.

Guests were given a custom ‘Pit Pass’ name badge, and played with Hot Wheels race tracks. They enjoyed car-themed foods, like Dipstick Pretzels, Spare Tire Donuts, Flame Cake Pops, Stoplight Rice Krispie Treats, and handmade chocolate car lollipops.

The guests were given a Hot Wheel car of their own, along with Hershey’s Kisses with race car labels, a Car-themed coloring book, Hot Wheels tongue ‘tattoos’ (which were hilarious!), and a checkered flag.”

    This party is beautiful…I would be wary of labeling anything “Anti-freeze” that looked so much like actual anti-freeze and then encouraging people to drink it…it’s just me though I’m super careful about that sort of thing. I would probably have gone with a different word…maybe coolant or something like that…I know they mean the same thing essentially but it would make ME feel better…lol.

    Undeniably believe that that you said. Your favourite justification seemed to
    be on the web the easiest thing to take note of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst folks
    think about concerns that they just don’t realize about.

    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as defined
    out the entire thing with no need side-effects
    , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Thanks
