I am way behind on party posts. I assume that is because I have been doing so much partying. (Is that possible)
I recently threw a birthday party styled to fit a NYC cab theme per my 3 year old’s request. It is, after all, his birthday. The whole situation perplexed me seeing that he had only been in a taxi cab only once before. That one time must have left an impression.
I searched high and low for decorations to fit a taxi cab and came to the conclusion that I was on my own with this one. But, I prevailed and yes……the party planning professor’s founder threw a smashing taxi cab decorated party.
Black table clothes were no hard find. In every party store there is an over the hill section so try your hardest to think out of the box. We also created a yellow overlay table cloth and as a center piece we improvised and created a center street down the length of our table. We decorated with yellow and black balloons.
Taxi cars were scattered about.
We were happy to see that the the 3 year old’s brother was able and WILLING to pitch in. We set him to cutting strips of paper. We wove these strips of paper to make checkered place mats. It was pretty impressive when the table came together. I was happy to see the day shaping up to be a success.
Instead of using taxi cab streamers we created black and yellow chain link streamers. I wish I could show you pictures but recently my computer crashed and all of my pictures from the last year were lost. I was devastated. My computer has recovered “technically” but I am still wounded. Please let this be a warning….back up your pictures. They are priceless. Of course we will remember the day forever and I just happened to share some on Facebook. so at least I have a shot or two saved from the many I lost.
Tomorrow I’ll talk about the menu and games we had. You won’t want to miss it!
