    Wow — you’re so cleaver Sarah!! I haven’t had much opportunity to plan a child’s birthday yet — but I already have a few ideas brewing for the years to come :)

    Thanks Andrea! It was so much fun to do – I swear it cemented my belief in the power of THEMES. Once we picked it, the ideas just flowed. Can’t wait to see what kinds of things you do down the road. :)

    Where did you find the poster for pin the plate on the truck?  Such cute ideas!!!

    This is actually a unique idea for a birthday party, kids would really love such party. That car wash sprinkler is awesome by the way, kids would not get board with that activity. I’ve organized a party before for my niece last month and it was an animal theme just in their backyard, it went well. I’ll take note of this idea.

    Tiffany – we designed the poster and I had it printed at a local FedEx Office.

    Thanks! I can honestly say the kids had an absolute blast.

    I bought the pin the license plate game, and I am wondering how you made them look more like an actual plate? I can only get mine to write in black? Also where did you print the poster from? Did you have to send it somewhere since it’s so large? Thank you!

    Cindy, I had both the poster and the plates printed at a local Staples. I also hear Costco does a nice job and is pretty inexpensive as well.

    Hi Cindy,

    Did you purchase our plates on our site at the link below? You can type in the kid’s names in Adobe Reader and print the plates out in color: http://getbuttonedup.com/shop/pin-the-plate-on-the-monster-truck-pdfs/
    You can print out the poster at any local Staples, Costco, or Kinkos (size is 18×24).
    Please let me know if you have any further questions.
    Thanks!
    Hollie

    Hi! I came across your party ideas on Google & love pin the license plate on the monster truck. Can you tell me where you found the big monster truck decal?

  • Marci

    I absolutely love the Monster Truck invitation! Is it for sale or do you have a free printable? If possible I would love to use it for my Son’s 2nd Birthday Party. Please let me know.

  • Mel

    Hi there! Just wondering if the Monster truck poster and license plates are still available for purchase? The link in this thread isn’t working any more (I do see this post is 2 years old). Would love to get a copy for our party in a couple of weeks.

  • Mariela Comitini

    I just downloaded the license plates. How do you center the names? And what font did you use? When I type the name in, it travels up into New York and you can’t see the name.

  • Mariah guzman

    If I want to order the pin the license plate on the monster truck how much will you charge me and will I have it by Oct 4th thank you! You did an amazing job on your party!
