Parker's Pink & Gold Race Car Party

Natalie M By Natalie M  in Birthday


Party Recap

Parkers 4th Annual Cannonball Run Road Race
This gold & pink road race party was created for my daughter Parker! She is the perfect mix of Princess & Warrior and has a huge love of cars!
She's wanted her cars painted gold for quite a while so this was the perfect opportunity to give her a mighty girl party.
It is inspired by the old Herbie movies and cross country car movies like "Cannonball Run" - hers is a race down route 4.
World wide party customized the party printables using this theme, they were perfect, vintage pink cars, gold flames and race car helmets!
I spray painted wheelbarrow tires, toy cars, oil funnels and race tracks got hold of pink tool boxes and racing to combine with pretty pink tulle and tissue d├ęcor.
The dessert table was the auto shop so I used pegboard as a backdrop and clipped the race sign. Every racecar needs a pit stop and every child loves candy so we also had a "Jelly Belly" pit stop. Their dispensers made great fueling stations!
I found a large cardboard cut-out of a pink car and used it as a photo booth, this was a big hit with kids and adults alike and Parker drove her friends around wearing a helmet, gloves and googles! You can get creative with your signs and labels and use car terminology, we had mini road signs that I used on the tables and for food labelling. The main eating table provided some with a gold race track and gold cars for kids to race. I also used cardboard popcorn holders in the shape of vintage pink Cadillac's, fun for eating & driving around the party room.
Favors were for making with parents at home - mini Car-rariums. Snow & cars inside a plastic reusable mason jar.
Hope you enjoy the race! Ready, Set, Go!!!
