After seeing a cake a year ago that was shaped in a figure-eight race track design, my daughter told me that's what she wanted for her 8th birthday cake. We ran with the theme and her party was a race car party. Wanting to do something different, we switched up a typical color scheme of black and red and used her favorite color - Blue. Needing another color to complete the whole package, she picked orange because it's blue's complimentary counterpart.

You all know, I love to set the tone of a party with a fun invitation. My oldest daughter recently turned eight. (Hand me a tissue, please.) I'm working on the photos for the party post, but in the meantime, here's the invitation.
