My Little Man turned two this month. Wow! How time flies! Last year we hosted a home birthday party and it was fun, but a lot of work. This year we decided to have his birthday party at our local Children’s Museum. We are members and so there was steep discount – no cleaning up, you can bring your own decorations and food, and the kids get to play with awesome things (restaurant, dentist office, bank, yacht, grocery store, dress-up stage, art room, and much much more!) How could we not host a party here? We went with a Disney Cars Birthday party theme.
We were able to get in 30 minutes early to decorate with our Disney Cars birthday decorations. It was pretty quick and easy to open all the amazing things I ordered from Oriental Trading Company. When the worker came in about 20 minutes after we arrived, he was impressed. I told him it was all Oriental Trading – I just opened and hung up the items.
Thankfully, the room had hooks to hang everything. Our hanging Disney Cars decorations looked great around the room. There were two small tables for kids to sit at and we were able to cover those and add table decor to them as well. We decided the easiest thing was to serve pizza. We were able to pick up the pizza 15 minutes before the party. We also served grapes, strawberries, chips, granola bars, water, juice boxes, and soda. Easy food options for toddlers!
Happy Birthday, Nathanael!
He sang along with all our friends and family to Happy Birthday song. My Little Man loved his birthday cake too and ate it all by himself.
We had a bag of party favors for each of the seven children that attended. No candy favors this year. Just Disney Cars filled fun bags! Those were a big hit!
What birthday themes have you done for your kids?
Oriental Trading Company has a large amount of supplies for birthday parties at an affordable price. And the quality of all the items we received? Top notch! In fact, we are saving everything, just in case we use it once more when he is 5 or 6.

We love Cars, especially Mater. I’ll bet this is a birthday he doesn’t forget!
We love Mater the best too!
You did a fantastic job decorating – looks like a fun party! Happy Birthday big guy! Most recently we did a Mickey Mouse theme and the kids loved it!
My son really loves Mickey Mouse too. Maybe that will be his 3rd birthday theme. Thanks Lisa!
My nephew LOVES these movies. I bet he’d love a part like this 🙂 The decorations are so cute!

ADORABLE is the first would that comes to mind. Both my boys loved and love cars. Looks like a great party.
Looks great! Nice job. I LOVE oriental trading co. I used some of their favors at my baby shower even. I think I’ll have to try a birthday party at our children’s museum next year too.
How cute is this! What an adorable birthday party with the cars theme for an adorable little boy! 🙂
OH gosh – my son would love all that. We did do CARS for his 3rd and Buzz Lightyear for his 4th and not sure about 5th..but he is liking Ninja Turtles right now or perhaps the Minions!!

We did a Frozen theme for my son’s 3rd birthday a few weeks ago. It was a ton of fun, even though it was a simple party at home.

Too fun! We did a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse one earlier this year. It was a blast!
I love Cars! I want to have a Lilo and Stitch party. You are never too old for Disney.

I love this so much – looks like TOO much fun. Love decorating for birthday parties. You did a GREAT job!
This is so appropriate for a two year old. We wish we had went with this theme, it wasnt until later we did this but not as well as you
Looks like a FUN party!!!!
