'Route 3' Red Car 3rd Birthday Party

What little boy doesn’t love playing with cars? This adorable “ROUTE 3” RED CAR 3RD BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Katie Malandrino of Green Apple Paperie. I love how Katie decorated the party from head to toe in red car themed items. I’m sure the 'fast lane' punch and spare tire cookies were a hit. Everything is oh so cute!

Katie said-- “This party was for my son, Luca, who turned three back in September. I went with a simple car theme but wanted to incorporate his age into the theme in a creative way. So the idea of the Route 66 signs came to mind. I used his age inside the route sign for the cake topper, cake pops flags and the cookies as well.

The cookies were done by A Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe in Vermont. They went above and beyond in creating custom cookies for me. I ordered them right after Vermont got hit with a major storm that caused tremendous flooding and damage around their bakery. I was very impressed that they were able to still send out my order despite the conditions of their area. Great customer service!

I made a table runner to look like a street and placed painted wooden cars on the runner to add some fun to the dessert table. My sister-in-law crafted the birthday cake.”
