The Revelbee Racecar Party in Action!

My younger son who is a car guy, celebrated his 4th birthday, so it was the perfect chance to put the “pedal to the metal” with our Revelbee Racecar Party Package. I am going to share several of the photos from the party that a friend took. This party was so easy to execute because I just used the Revelbee package and a few super simple DIY ideas. Everyone had a great time! I love having all the kids over to the house, especially in June when the weather is nice and they can just play in our backyard. I wanted to try one of our amazing vendors “RC Cars to U.” A friend and fellow entrepreneurial mom (founder of...

When kids first entered the party, we gave them their pirate garb – the eye patch and pirate hat favors – and ushered them outside to enjoy warm up activities.   In our backyard, we created our very own “Walk the Plank” and “Captain Hook’s Ring Toss.” Both were easy to throw together. For Walk the Plank, I painted an old piece of...

Pirate Cake How To

I came across the inspiration for my sons’ pirate themed birthday cake on Pinterest (where else!). The catch was that we were having 30 kids plus adults so over 50 people total. Thus, I needed a sheet cake but I wasn’t willing to spend the money for a professionally done cake on such a large scale. Enter my secret weapon Costco. Previously, I had transformed a Costco cake into a construction zone (read the blog post here) and thought that the store could potentially help me complete my cake vision.On my next trip to Costco, I meandered over to the bakery with a photo of my cake inspiration and asked whether they could create the red and white vertical stripes along...
