Monster Truck Birthday Party Smash

After a family outing to a monster truck show this winter….my son was smitten! He turned FIVE this summer {holy cow!} and Monster Truck Birthday Party Smash was a must have! This kid loves all things that go {you can check out the Construction Party for his 3rd birthday here} and these trucks really go. They smash and crash, pop wheelies, turn donuts, and race each other for the WIN! Designing this party for him was a challenge but I love how it all came together.

Monster Truck Invitations

First things first, we always start with the invitations. These bad boys were the very first products designed for our HalfpintPartyDesign Etsy Shop! And I’m super excited to announce that it’s open!! {In case you missed our grand opening!}

Greet Guests

Simple but effective way to greet guests for your Monster Truck Birthday Party Smash! Halfpint Design with Party Printables from HalfpintPartyDesign on Etsy. Boy party theme. 5th birthday. Porch decor.

How do you greet your guests? Do you leave enough time to decorate your porch or create a welcome sign? Our house is tucked back a bit so we had a sign on the road as well as the banners on the porch. There was no question that guests had arrived to the right place! This set up is SOOOO simple. Almost too simple to even show you but I LOVED how much of an impact these simple checked pennants made to draw you in to the front door.

I also really like having a welcome sign on, or in this case…near, the front door. I snagged an old tire with a cool white stripe and set the sign on top. Seriously easy but it has an elegant simplicity about it. If you are wondering where you can get that awesome sign that coordinates perfectly with the Monster Truck Invitations….you’re in luck! We also have a Monster Truck Printable Birthday Party Decor Package in our Etsy Shop! Keep an eye out for more great printables all over this party!

Food Table Backdrop

The food table is typically the main event so I designed a simple backdrop to be the party focal point. You can get simple step-by-step instructions on how to create this backdrop with the Monster Truck Party Plan at Enjoius. The table runner is tire track gift wrap from Spoonflower! Did you know that Halfpint Party Design is now on Spoonflower too!? {Holy cow – we’re everywhere!!} I love using gift wrap as a simple upgrade over inexpensive plastic table covers.

The AFTER Party

After party imagination! I loved seeing the kids continue to play "Monster Truck Races" after the party was long over. Monster Truck Birthday Party Smash! Halfpint Design with Party Printables from HalfpintPartyDesign on Etsy. Boy party theme. 5th birthday.

I love when decor can be used again long after the party is over. My kiddos have played “monster truck racing” for days! These large inflatable tires were so much fun in the backyard {check out the Monster Truck Party Plan Activities for more} but they also make for a great vehicle! The “steering wheels” {really just velour covers on embroidery hoops} and ear protection made them feel like they were really in the pit! Cheers to imagination and I think I score a mom point for that one!!

Do you know a little {or big!} one obsessed with monster trucks? This Monster Truck Birthday Party was a smashing success! I love the party printables from our Etsy Shop and hope that you do too! If you throw a party using the Enjoius Monster Truck Party Plan let us know. We’d love to show off all your hard work!
