Nikolas’ Mini Cooper Party

Where did the time go? My sweet boy just had his 5th birthday celebration this weekend! Nikolas has always been a car kid. From the time he started talking, he could name almost every car on the road.
So this year, he decided he wanted his birthday to be none other than car themed. So to make it easy on his mom, he told me it couldn’t be just plain ol’ cars, but specifically Mini Coopers.


The vision, if you will, started with some cute model cars I happened upon at CVS of all places! They had these great little diecast Mini Coopers on an end cap near the candy aisle for $4.99 each. I swooped up as many as I could and decided to use them on the kids table, where I printed out a road as a table runner.


Then the inspiration for the British Invasion theme came about for the cake. I knew I wanted to incorporate the British flag somehow, but it still had to stick to our Mini Cooper theme, per The Boss’ orders! Big props to my girl, Ashley, for seeing my vision and creating this amazing cake!!!

I had so much fun making the rest of the dessert table decorations! Chocolate sandwich cookies transformed into “Spare Tires” and donut holes became cake pops, while giant marshmallows got their own personalized cupcake toppers.

We had the party at Pump It Up, per The Boss’ request, where can you believe we had less than 15 minutes to get all the decorations up before the kids came in? Whew! I enlisted both grandmas and a handful of moms to be my work crew. Huge thank you, ladies!!!


Overall, the day was a success, and Nikolas got his Mini Cooper Party, and lots of other fun cars to play with!
Happy 5th Birthday, Sweet Boy!

Oh My! I love that it's a unique theme and something so special to the birthday boy! Everything is very well done. I especially love the mini coopers down the middle of the table!
I would love it if you would share this at my August "It's A Celebration" link party. I think my readers will love it as much as I do.

Nikolas’ Mini Cooper Party was so fabulous as always. You are one of my favorite bloggers and I always love your ideas. At the local event space Atlanta I too would be hosting birthday bash for my son so your blog is quite inspirational. Need some help in finding a good event space Atlanta. Can you provide some inspirations?
