Ready Racers.....Go! {A birthday party with Stuck on You}

Knowing Mylo's fourth birthday was only 2 weeks to go before our big overseas trip, I was racking my brains to figure out how we could pull off a really fun, themed party without a huge amount of effort on our part, not having either the time or energy to go all out like we did for the big Olympic Party six weeks ago.

That's where the themed party product range from Stuck on You totally came to my rescue.

And as we were hosting the party at a local indoor under-5's play area called Tinytown which just happens to have lots of ride-on cars, it was appropriate that we chose a red racing monkey theme for all our party gear.

We were able to personalise and colour co-ordinate our invitations, address labels, party dots, straw flags, cupcake toppers, and drink labels all along the lines of our racing theme.

There were also personalised place cards for our little racers and a giant wall sticker to put up pride of place in case anyone could possibly forget whose birthday we were celebrating.

And for us it was then a complete relief and a real joy to just let the kids run as wild as 3 and 4 year olds love to do for most of the party, only reining them in when it was time for a quick bite to eat. 

We did have an organised game to play but in the melee of getting everything prepared at the venue I misplaced the bananas for Pin the Banana on the Monkey so the only shots I got were at home afterwards when Mylo asked to play it once I'd relocated the bananas. He's already asked to take it to daycare and play it with his friends again though!

And the cake to go perfectly with our racing theme? Why none other than a race car track in the shape of a four. Result. Although the making of the cake nearly did me over in the process. Hardest cake ever. But I persevered with it for 3 hours and (I think!) managed to still pull it off in the end.

Little Mr Just turned Four was also ridiculous pleased to have his very own personalised cup to take home in memory of the big day.

Both hubby and I remarked afterwards how easy and fun this party was to prepare by our usual party standards - if you ignore the high maintenance cake that is!

Special thanks goes to Stuck on You for the opportunity to review their party range for the big day - it made our party look and feel race-worthy all the way to the finish line!
