Old truck... new party

Party? That's right! My youngest treasure turned 2 and we celebrated with a party for family and friends. 

I had searched and searched for party inspiration! I finally came to the conclusion that I wanted to do trucks because that is his favorite thing. It is very rare that I do not see him carrying around a red truck or two. I decided this months ago and searched and searched for a party printable that I wanted to use. Everything was either too commercialized or just not the style I wanted. So, since my husband and I are owners of a 57 Chevy truck... I wanted to go the vintage route. Then finally I found the perfect printable 2 weeks before the party!

Deanna from Mirabelle Creations created this oh so sweet party printable and as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. Since finding this printable I have continued to follow her blog and it is a great party planning blog! I love her simple, elegant style!

So here is my take on the vintage truck party!

I used a picture of my husbands 57 Chevy as a backdrop for my popcorn bar! Cracker Jacks and glass bottled coca-cola was the favor I chose. Adults and kids both enjoyed them! Tammy from sew sweet made the cake and of course it turned out even better than i hoped! Connie at Pate's Paisley's and Polka Dots appliqued the adorable shirt for the birthday boy! She personalizes everything for me and always does a great job!

My youngest treasure had a wonderful birthday and we made memories to treasure forever! It was simple and it was sweet! Can't wait to plan my next party! Let's see, when will that be... stay tuned!
