Van's Party - Part One

Since the Volkswagen logo is blue and white, I went along with that color scheme. We had an assortment of blue and white finger foods, along with hot dogs, for the spread. I chose to do it at a local beach park so the kids would have room to run around.
I ordered the adorable old fashioned popcorn boxes here. However, I later found out that my local Jo-Ann's carries them. I printed the V's out on full sheet labels then cut them to size. The blue and white striped straws were ordered off Etsy.For the "goodie box" I thought it would be fun if each child went home with their own Volkswagen car, bus, or truck. I found these diecast's on Amazon at a fairly decent price. The cute boxes came from The Container Store.
The party was a huge success and I wouldn't have been able to pull it off without the help of friends. Many who donated their time, supplies, or man power. Thanks!
