MONSTER TRUCK!

While in Arkansas this past weekend, one of my close girlfriends, Kari, mentioned to me that she would like to do a Monster Truck birthday for her son Grant in the late summer when he turns 3. She initially wanted to do a Rock Star party, but he is currently obsessed with Monster Trucks. She knew that he would enjoy that theme a lot more than they one she had previously planned on. So, I told her I would look around and see what cute ideas I could send her.
I love this theme-there are SO many fun things you can do with it!

One of my favorite things to do for any kind of outdoor-related theme is Dirt Cake. Kids love it, especially boys. My husband is 31 and requests dirt cake all the time. You could do small individual servings instead of cupcakes. It would look adorable on a tier server. 
I also love the idea of making the entrance like a dirt track with flags, etc. Kari could easily do this because she doesn't live in a neighborhood, so she has a lot of room to really use the outdoors to her advantage.
Using tires, like Maddycakes Muse in the inspiration board is a stroke of genius! 
Can't wait to see how it turns out Kari!!

If you follow Kristy at The Purple Pug, you know she is doing a Monster Jam party soon. I am thinking there will be A LOT of inspiration there!
