{Amazin' Parties} Corbin's Race Car Party


I have some amazing and talented friends who love to throw fantastic poorties just like me!  Here's a race car party that my friend and fellow blogger, Charisse Matthews, threw for her son Corbin's 3rd birthday. I've been sitting on this party for a minute to tie it to something car inspired.  With the next installment of the Disney's Cars franchise coming out tomorrow, it's now a perfect time to showcase this bash!




"These are pictures from my son's race car party. He loves race cars of any kind. I don't like to use a lot commercial party items so I only incorporated a few. This was such a fun party and I even found my little man a racing t-shirt from The Children's Place that went perfect with his party theme! Adults and Children had a ball!" - Charisse

{Party Starters} Make a SPLASH! with a School's Out Cool Out

For the end of the school year I told The Mini Diva that she could invite a few friends over for a splash party.  Splash parties are lots of fun and a great alternative to pool parties.  Ya just fill up a few inflatable pools, water up sommadoze slip and slide thingies,  toss a few fun water blasters and floaties into the mix and ya have a splash party!  To also beat the summer heat you gotta have popsicles and icees on hand - it's a must - and a perfect compliment to a splash party, especially for my brood. 

Although, I'm really not trying to do a big bash - the crazy party gal in me can't help making this just a wee bit more festive.  To get things started I created these happy images for the party and an invitation for my baby girl to pass out to her friends:







If you are planning your own splash party or ice cream social I created some party toppers and a fill in invite   to get your party started. Click here for the FREE printables Check back later this week for more fun party tips, giveaways and freebies!
