DIY Party Inspiration: Hot Wheels Inspired 1st birthday!

Thinking about a Hot Wheels themed party?
Well, I’ll share with you some awesome party ideas from my godson’s first birthday.
We all put the pedal to the metal and pulled out all the stops to make this party a success!

Hot Wheels Party Decor

For most of the guest tables, we made fantastic centerpieces from small colorful pails with sticks inside decorative straws and pictures that matched the party’s theme.
We also placed some candies to make them more fun!
The kids were amused! The great thing is you can do this with any theme you like!
Just imagine the possibilities!
We also made centerpieces that were studded with lots of lollipops! Sweet! 
For the program area, it was decked out with things such as tires and early warning devices. 
My husband also repurposed the 1 standee used for our daughter’s owl-themed party.

Hot Wheels Party Dessert Table

Now, here’s the most anticipated part: the dessert table! 
So, let’s have a closer look, shall we?
At the center, we have a lollipop topiary. It took about 500 lollipops, a few trips to the grocery and several hours to embellish it. We even put cement into the pot to make sure it was stable.
But I think, all the effort was worth it. It looked impressive plus the kids… and well, the adults too had fun picking out the lollies!
The delicious baked goodies were from Cakes and Bakes. I love contrast of orange and blue.
Also, we added some toy cars on the cake.
The color scheme was carried over to the cupcakes as well.
By the way, we got these FREE hot wheels cupcake topper printables from Over the Big Moon.
They look so cool, don’t they?
I think everything was put together nicely with the fun and bright colors. 

While there were glitches here and there, we made it work. Here’s my friend Mishi making some last minute touches on the table.
 Here are some snapshots from the party:

I hope you found some great ideas here for your next DIY party!
