Throw an eye-popping monster truck birthday party
August 27, 2010
What young boy does not love the sound and fury that monster trucks provide? Watching the towering feats of engineering fly through the air and whip around a dirt track can be one of the most exciting events around. If you know a young man who is celebrating a birthday soon, why not channel the awe-inspiring atmosphere of a rally into a monster truck-themed party? Whether they love Gravedigger or are a Bigfoot fan, they will be sure to have a blast!
Invitations should be the first thing on your to-do list when getting ready for your shindig, so make sure you pick enticing ones. You'll certainly want to include images of these legendary vehicles on the invites, so do not forget to purchase ones that feature some of the most famous trucks. The lettering should also be in a large font and in a bright color to portray the level of excitement and intensity that will be reflected in the theme.
Once you've chosen invitations, you should turn your attention toward decorations. You'll likely want your decor to mimic the look and feel of an arena, so a great place to start would be to arrange a dirt race track scene setter. This can be a fantastic way to begin, and is a wonderful choice to create an engaging atmosphere. Next, think about stringing some caution tape around your home when it's time for the party. While most get-togethers use tinsel or streamers, caution tape is a perfect way to portray the danger and non-stop action associated with the gargantuan trucks flattening unsuspecting cars below. Most parties for youngsters are replete with balloons, and yours should not be any different. The birthday boy and his friends will surely enjoy ones adorned with checkered flags floating throughout the area.
While decorations and invitations are definitely an important aspect of any gathering, you will want to take special care when it comes to purchasing supplies and other extras. For starters, you'll need paper plates, napkins and cups for your guests. Just like your invitations, you should include plenty of imagery of the trucks themselves on them. Use paper goods that feature Bearfoot or the legendary Black Stallion and watch your guests' faces light up.
Although supplies can serve a functional purpose, there are many other extras that can make your soiree more fun for all the attendees. Your guests will jump at the opportunity to don some nifty hardhats, and as an added bonus, perhaps think about playing some videos of a thrilling rally.
Also, why not give a goodie bag as a thank you to your friends and family who attended your shindig? Stuffing a loot bag with stickers, candy and other mementos will give them a way to remember the party for the months and years to come.
Birthday parties can be a lot of fun for a young chap, and when combined with one of their favorite hobbies, it is sure to be a hit. Going all out for your little one will put a smile on both their face and yours.
