We decided to combine a racing theme with some snail stuff to create this fun party. The food table offered yummy treats like chocolate covered pretzels that looked like stop lights, a delicious fruit tray with cuties cut to look like snails, "spare tires" or chocolate covered donuts, turbo powered blue punch and pizza.
For decorations we chose turbo colors of orange and turquoise with black and white accents. The tables were covered with orange table cloths and we placed black paper with painted white lines down the center of each to resemble roads.each guest received black and white goody bags filled with slug candy, glow in the dark slime, turbo stickers, mini trophies, racing flags, and pull-back cars.
In addition to goody bags, each guest received a handmade snail shell and headband. The craft was for guests to create mosaic paper plate snails using tissue paper.
It was a really fun party to plan for and made me really think outside of the box! Plus my staff kind of hated me for making them create all of those snail shells. It took a ton of craft paper!
