My Party: Lucas
It’s a party this month on Ohdeedoh and we’re excited to share more of your parties starting with the Monster Truck Party Darleen threw for her son. She says, Lucas turned three and got his request–a monster truck theme party. Let me tell you–there’s not much out there for this theme, so it was a little tricky coming up with ideas…
I incorporated his invitation colors in the party decorations. Pulled out all his monster trucks and used them for centerpieces/balloon weights. The party favors were, what else but monster trucks and Lucas’s favor candy–gumballs.I made the banner on my computer and home printer. Used different fonts with different colors for each letter and printed two letters per one 8.5×11 sheet. Cut and then stapled on ribbon. It took me about 15 minutes to make. Super easy.
Made monster truck costumes for each of the children, so they could have a “monster truck rally”. Bought small shipping boxes–cut the flaps off one side. Spray painted top part red, bottom metallic. Spray painted small white plates black for the tires (although you could just buy black plates). And then painted on truck decal and headlights. Punch holes and strung black twine. The back of each “truck” had a “license plate” with the children’s name on it that I made in Word.
Thanks, Darleen! (You can see and read more about Lucas’ Monster Truck party at Darling Darleen.)
