Cars Birthday Party

We recently celebrated my son's 3rd birthday. He's obsessed with all things Cars, so it was a no-brainer what I should do for his birthday party!

My handsome little 3 year old

I had a pretty small budget for this party, so I wanted to make the most of what I had. A lot of what I got for this party came from the dollar store. That place is a goldmine!

From the dollar store:
- Tablecloth
- Popcorn tubs
- Large glass tumblers
- Cake plate
- Streamers

I got the black and white striped straws from Hey Yo-Yo on Etsy. The red cups with lids were from Target. I made little flags for the tops of each cupcake with the names of each kid on them.

I used my Cricut to make the banner.

For the cake, I made a poke cake. I used a German chocolate cake mix with Oreo pudding and crushed Oreos for the gravel-looking top.

I loved it and I think my baby boy did, too!!
