Graham's Motorcyle Themed Birthday Party

Motorcyle Themed Birthday Party

To celebrate turning three, super cutie Graham mentioned a motorcycle themed party. His mom Courtney Goolsby of CG Event Design took the idea and ran with it, combining an Americana, Roadster look with a water party. Sarah Wenzel of August Blume brought the theme to life in the fantastic paper goods including the invitation, thank you notes, stickers, muslin printed favor bags (packed with sunscreen, sunglasses, tatoos and wind up motorcycles!), banners and outdoor signage.

The party didn't just look the part. It was filled with fun motorcycle themed activities! Graham's awesome dad Jason built a "bike wash" with PVC pipe attached to a water hose for the party guests to splash around in. Family friends Scott and Angie Bumpus of Bumpus Harley Davidson even brought a red Roadster for photo ops. To get them into character, guests entered the "Be a Biker" tent, where they received mustaches, tattoos, and bandanas. Guests also enjoyed a fun slider assembly line, with mini burgers and corndogs, cracker jacks, chips, lemonade "fuel" and fruit.

Beth Morgan of b mo foto captured all of the details so beautifully, and you can see much more over in the full gallery!
