Motorcycle Rally Boy’s Birthday Party {Real Party}

motorcycle birthday party invitation

My son’s birthday party is my favorite one that I throw all year. Boy parties are challenging. No pink, no fluff, just down and dirty wholesome boy goodness. That can be fun if you let it! After some gentle steering from his father, our kiddo was quite enthusiastic about paying homage to motorcycles. For weeks before (and after!) the party all conversations focused around motorcycles in one way or another. And for good reason…his party even brought little boy smiles to dads in attendance at the event! You can see the full spread of this party in Festivities Magazine.

There were some pretty amazing vendors who leant talent to this party. Rockets and Rainbows designed this details (and beloved) party shirt just for the birthday boy. I have to pry it off him at night he loves it so much.

The checkboard floor was actually plastic sheeting we taped to the floor; it gave a great motorcycle shop effect!

I love bunting. I bet you couldn’t tell by looking at all the parties I throw. For this one, some flames and checkerboards just seemed right.

Flame-licked french macaroons in vanilla. AND they’re organic. I love when we’re able to marry artistry with better-for-you options. And did you see the flames?? Righteous. By the talented earthandsugar.

The oil cans were one of my favorite details. Every “oil can” was a can of tomato I wrapped a specially-designed label around. They were stacked and used as dessert stands.

Among all the pure sugar at the table, I attemped to put out some healthier treats. Some apple slices with a little chocolate drizzle, some popcorn cakes, and my one big pinterest fail, the frozen yogurt fruit pops (frozen strawberries dipped in greek yogurt). They tasted great and the kids loved them, but their appearance needed a few more rounds of practice.

Just a few more looks at the dessert table–Love and Sugar Kisses provided the wildly fun fondant toppers and chocolate covered oreos.

For lunch, we set up a “Biker Burger Bar” with lots of different yummy toppings: carmalized onions, sauteed mushrooms, bacon, thick cut pickles, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese.  With a big spinach salad and a side of bbq and hotdogs there was a little something for everyone.

Even our water bottles got a little party crazy!

The one and only request my son had for his party is that there be a bounce house. I couldn’t tell that sweet little face no. Besides, the adults that come usually end up having as much fun in there as the kids do.

 

There was also a tattoo station inside the house with bunches of Ed Hardy tattoos. I think my daughter ended up with eleven of them in various places, and the other kids had about as much fun with them.

 

We had another party game planned – a motorcycle tire roll – but everyone at the party was so occupied with what was already offered, we didn’t have time to play!

Party guests had so many goodies to go home with! I had planned for all the kids to gear up with do-rags, sunglasses and really cool “born to be wild” t-shirts in a jar, all in individually personalized “motorcycle parts” containers. But the way it really went was the kids gasped when they saw the motorcycle in the living room and looked past that and saw the bounce house and were gone to do their own thing. You have to be really flexible when it comes to kids’ parties, so we let them run.

By the end of the party, the little guests had all wandered back to sift through their boxes. We sent each family home with a CD of the party play list — inspired by motorcycles and a need for speed.

The motorcyle was also a big draw. Everyone that wanted to climbed on got their picture taken as little biker dudes.

All in all, a highly successful party! Brennan had the time of his life and still gets excited to see pictures from his party.
