Name: Julian, 3
Location: Medford Lakes, NJ

Like many his age, Julian just loves cars. In order to save money as well as personalize it, we made the party a hybrid of imagery from the movie Cars and automobiles in general.

Sally's Cozy Cones were waffle ice cream cones filled with a snack mix. Pretzel rods & cheese sticks were "hot rods", fruit skewers were "dip sticks" and we made Luigi's House of Tires with any round finger food (mini donuts, bagels, pepperoni, Ritz crackers and Fluffernutter banana sandwiches). 

The Pit Stop banner was made using a computer font and an image of a checkered flag found on the internet. The living room coffee table became a freshly paved road for all of our many toy cars by using yellow electrical tape. For a game, we played hot potato with a Mater Pillow Pet to a Spotify mix of all car-themed songs ("Route 66", "No Particular Place to Go", etc....).

It was a thrilling day for Julian!

Thanks, Danielle!
