My son Benjamin turns 4 this month, and we wanted to throw him an early birthday party to help celebrate with some extended family. What's great, is that Walmart and Hallmark have teamed up and created a great selection of everything you will possibly need for a theme party. I think I'll be headed back in December to throw my daughter a Disney Princess party. You can see my whole shopping story here. Plus, there is a great selection of birthday cakes at Walmart, like this incredible Disney Pixar Cars Cake. My son was giddy jumping up and down when he saw the cake!
I taped Instagram pictures to the blue and silver balloon strings. The effect is really amazing, especially in person. We all loved looking at all the little pictures of Benjamin as we celebrated his birthday. I taped pictures to both sides, to give a little more weight to the balloons.
I especially love this pop up Mater snack holder, and the kids love it too! It is a fun and perfect way to serve popcorn, or cookies, or chips, and it only takes about two or three minutes to assemble.
We were thrilled to find a whole new selection of Disney Pixar Cars die cast cars, like a lot of the characters from the first Cars movie. We got Benjamin Flo and Sarge as little early birthday presents. Benjamin also really loved his special birthday medal.
And of course, Benjamin and Lyla had to play in their Cars for a little while.
I can't get over this fantastic cake. All of the little details are adorable from the cones to the grass. It's also great that this cake (and other similar ones) are available at Walmart. I would recommend calling or stopping by at least 24 hours in advance, to make sure they will have time to decorate the cake you want.
We went ahead and got some Cars party favors at Walmart too, for when Benjamin has a party with his friends. These tire yo-yos are so cute.
Benjamin loved his little Cars party, down to every detail. He came over to me after we'd eaten the cake and said "Mommy, I'm older now. I'm 4." I had to explain to him that this was an early birthday party, and that he wouldn't turn 4 until his actual birthday. He said, "Oh, my Cars birthday didn't work." He didn't seem at all upset, but he was thinking, we'll have to try again and maybe the next time the party will make me turn 4. He cracks me up!
