Gentlemen Start Your Engines!!!!

Amazing how fast time flies isn't it? One minute you're in the hospital giving birth to that bundle of joy, and the next you're throwing his third birthday party! I can relate to that! My youngest son just turned 3! We celebrated his birthday by having a Race Car Party. No Race Car Party could be complete without Lightning McQueen! On the table you will find a Lightning McQueen costume that I made out of cardboard! That's right- cardboard. I didn't realize cardboard could be formed to curve exactly how you wanted it to bend, but it can! This costume would later come off of the table and our birthday boy would wear it for a race with his birthday guests! The cups I ordered online! They are the cutest things I have ever seen!

Construction cone cups complete with their own straw! I made place card holders out of mini trophies that I bought at a local party store. I also used a bigger trophy on a stand with the birthday boys initials for one of the centerpieces. I wanted to get a real traffic light, but I did not have the time to order one, so I made a fake traffic light out of a cardboard box, a trash bag, and colored paper. For the party we played a pit crew relay race where you had to change the tire on Lightning McQueen, wash his windows, and fill him up with gas in his gas tank. We also had a tire rolling race, a bean bag tire toss, and played red light green light! We had cars set up for the kids to play with on a mat that looked like a little city! He had a Race Car Themed cupcake tower with race car and checkered flag toppers. One the top was a six inch cake with a trophy topper! All and all it was a great party and we can't believe our little one has zoomed through another year!!

Party Themes

Running out of time and ideas on what to do for your child's birthday party? All too often the stress of putting together a memorable party for our children make birthdays a less than enjoyable task. Who has the time to search online hour after hour? With the rising cost of gas, who wants to drive around to several local shops to coordinate all of the decorations, games, favor bags, etc. ? Not to mention, you don't want the same Wal-Mart party packs as everybody else do you? Let Mommy Mogul do all of the work for you while you take all of the credit.! We don't mind! We have wonderful party themes for girls, boys, and coed parties too! Many of our items are custom, so you don't have to worry about the same old thing as everyone else, and we have really creative and fun tablescapes!

It's all in the details

I found this party on Party411. It was an Ohio State Bar Mitzvah. Talk about fabulous!!!! The attention to detail was impeccable.

Check out what they did with the place cards. They attached the placecards to squeeze hot dogs and put them all on a fake grill that had fake flames.!
They even had a locker room and a bus! I love that a lot of thought was put into this party. It makes it that much more special for the guest of honor and all of the people that attend. Special touches are what give a party that custom one-of-a-kind designer feel. Think about that at your next party. At Mommy Mogul, we like to put that special twist on our favor bags. Our cars theme, for example, have personalized tool boxes for the favor bags. Not only does a tool box go with the cars theme, but it is a great keepsake long after the party is over. It is the special touches that make a party special!
There are plenty of party books out there for you to personalize your next event. Hello, cupcake is a wonderful book about themed cupcakes, that may be a way you can add a special touch to your party. Do what they did at Party411, have place cards with a themed twist!
No matter your theme or party event, it's the tought that goes into that counts.
