A Monster Truck Theme Party: Bigger Than Big
Monster trucks have been stirring the adrenaline of boys (young and old alike) since the late 1970s. Their big wheels, roaring engines, and car crushing capabilities have made fans all over the world. And these fans are die-hards - constantly catching the action on TV, attending live Monster Jams, and living their love out loud. If you've got one of these super-fans at home, a monster truck theme party is the way to celebrate his birthday in a way that he'll absolutely love.
Monster Truck Party Supplies: Your Essentials Checklist
To absolutely crush your monster truck birthday party, you're going to need to deck out your home with all the right party supplies. Monster trucks are big and noisy, so your decor, tableware, cake, and party favors are going to have to follow suit. There's nothing subtle about a monster truck party, so get ready to turn your home into a super-fan arena.
Here are your party must-haves to blow your birthday boy away:
Monster truck party invitations (plus thank you notes)
Get your theme front and center with invitations that feature these monster trucks in action. You'll get your guests revved up pre-party so they'll be in the right spirit when the day of the big bash arrives.
Monster truck paper plates and tableware
Kids love checking out the table full of good eats, so make sure your tableware supplies are fitting the high-octane theme of the day. There are many monster truck tableware sets available for parties up to eight, so they make a great place to start!
A monster truck cake or cake topper
Nothing says commitment like a birthday party cake featuring a monster truck cake topper. Or if you're really into the theme, you can create a monster truck themed cake from scratch
Not all of your supplies need to literally feature monster trucks. There are all sorts of symbols surrounding Monster Jam events that you can use, too, such as a checkered table cover that resembles a racing flag.
Monster truck wall stickers and party banners
When creating a theme party, never ignore your walls! Think of them like big canvases by which you can tie together your theme across your entire space. You've got lots of choices here. There are monster truck party banners you can attach to your wall or hang from your ceiling or wall stickers that can be a big win among the kids. They are highly detailed and very cool, and these stickers are easy to place on and peel off so they're really easy to use as decoration!
Monster truck temporary tattoos
You've got your space covered, but you've also got to get the kids interacting with the theme. Start with some temporary tattoos. They'll make the kids feel like they've got an edge, just like those monster truck drivers themselves.
A monster truck pinata
Monster trucks are all about crushing things, and that's where a pinata comes in. Give the kids something to crush too. Plus, pinatas are full of things kids just love, so they'll have a great time with it.
When it comes to little boys, getting a little loot (or party favors) is a really big thing. Make it official with a themed loot bag and load it up with all sorts of monster truck toys and party accessories that they'll enjoy during the party and for weeks afterwards.
Monster truck party favors (a.k.a. the loot)
There are lots of things you can add to those loot bags, but you'll definitely want to pick up some of the most popular out there. Pull back trucks are awesome here, as are monster truck visors and stickers. Anything that is interactive, fun, and monster truck cool can work. You can save them until party's end, so the kids have something to look forward to for their trip home. Or hand them out when they arrive, and be sure to include some things they can wear or that make noise so that it'll add some life to the party.
