Road Trip Birthday Party

 Every year I throw myself a birthday party.  Sometimes they're big and sometimes they're small and they always have a theme, of sorts. One year I did an ice cream party. I really need to get that one posted on here.  One of the most popular and fun was the Breakfast at Tiffany's party.  This year the theme was Road Trip.  I love road trips. I'd prefer to drive to my vacation destination than fly.  You get to see so much when you're on the road.

My guests were greeted by a banner and the classic air freshner tree's.  I'm not sure how people can stand to have those in their car.  The scent is so strong. I could smell them through the door.

I created the backdrop using a map and photo's of vacations I've been on.  I also marked places on the map that I had been.

Stopping for donuts is common on road trips.  You won't find these mini donuts in any shop on the road. They were made by EZ Favor Lollipop Shop.

Since the air freshner tree's have such a strong scent I didn't want to use them for the garland on the table.  Swishprintables did a great job of creating the air freshners in print.

Auntie Bea's Bakery helped with the snack stop in Arizona with cactus cookies.

I treated myself this year to a bakery cake.  Devils food cake layered with chocolate ganche and raspberry buttercream and iced in raspberry buttercream.

4 Kids Cakes created road signs to add some fun to the cake. I love how she distressed them so they look like they've been on the side of the road for years.

No trip is complete without a stop for munchies.

I always liked to get the little bags of nuts or gummy candy when we stopped for munchies.
Do you recognize that gummy bunny? Marshmallow Oreo cookies and  buttery crackers.

  4. Great ideas! I love that you have theme birthdays. I really don't do anything for myself, just buy me something and maybe a cake with my son. And that's it! I think I might lend your fabulous idea on my next birthday ;)
