Party Recap

When my son was born on his due date, 7-11, I knew his first party had to be a gas station themed bash! We transformed our backyard into a neighborhood 7-11, complete with cozy coupes for the kids to drive, a gas pump and convenience store with grocery carts to shop, a self serve nacho bar and dessert table complete with gas station treats: donuts served in the box, cookies for ice cream sandwiches and mini cupcakes. The lime green ombre smash cake took center place complete with a green, orange and red "Landon is One" cake banner. Touches of green, red and orange could be found in the decor like the pegboard Happy Birthday Landon display and slurpee banners and decorations were used to display the First birthday milestone pictures.

    A nacho bar complete with all the fixings including 4 homemade salsas! Thanks to the birthday boys uncle, who owns a food truck, the Vet Chef, the food was a hit! There was also green, orange and red veggies and fruit for guest to munch on.

  • What People Drank

    Sangria from slurpee cups, and a selection of bottled beers, sodas and mineral waters served in galvanized tubs.

    A gas station themed dessert bar complete with donuts in the box, cookies and ice cream to build your own ice cream sandwiches, mini cupcakes and cookies.
