Ka-chow - A Cars themed birthday!

My regularly readers and Instagram followers will know that I am a big Disney fan! So, when our little boy, Joseph, asked for a Cars theme for his 3rd birthday party I was happy to oblige!

I love a good themed party and Joseph has been lucky enough to have a Mickey Mouse and a Thomas the Tank Engine theme before. Having a theme can bring a cute touch to a party but it can also make things expensive! If like us you also have two parties, one for family and one for friends, that can add to the cost too!

So, I thought I'd share with you how we did our Cars themed birthday on a budget, twice!

First, I'll be honest with you and say I did start prepping a couple of months before. Doing this allows time for bargain hunting and getting crafty! I started by looking for ideas on Pinterest and had a flick around the internet for any special offers on partyware.

The latter meant I got the themed invites, tablecloth and party bags on special offer at Toys R Us, getting them for less than half price!

Next, I set about coming up with decorations, and again Pinterest was a great resource for this! I decided to go with bunting and to ensure all the pictures I used matched and were the same style I used Disney Wiki. It was time to get crafty!

This week's book is a bit of an educational one! It's Snappy First Words in Spanish!
