Hot Wheels Party Decorating Ideas:

Room Decorations
Balloons and streamers...the basic decorating stand-bys...are always an inexpensive and easy way to turn any room into a festive birthday party. Attach streamers from center of ceiling to each corner of the room. Use two colors and twist streamers for effect. Or...attach short streamers from doorways or down walls. Use plenty of red, blue, and green balloons, plus a special Hot Wheels balloon. Tie in bunches of 3 around room and/or attach one balloon to the back of each chair at the table. Use extra balloons on the "birthday" chair. Give each child a balloon to take home after the party. Put up a Hot Wheels party banner. A race car pinata will make a great decoration and can be used for an activity later. Display favorite Hot Cars collectibles.


Table Decorations
The easiest way to bring out any party theme is with the paper products for your table. Decorate your table with Hot Wheels theme paper goods for easy clean up. Add plates or napkins in solid colors if desired. Have a few toy cars around on table. Have a Hot Wheels theme loot bag filled with favors for each child.

Hot Wheels Party Food Ideas

Hot Wheels Racers Get Hungry!
Serve race track concession style food: soft pretzels and/or nachos with cheese dip, hot dogs and popcorn. Also, pizza or hamburgers are great Hot Wheels theme party foods.
For small children: Serve finger foods that are easy and fun for children and keep it simple. A fun idea that children love is peanut butter and jelly on party rolls. These are just kid sized! Another idea is to cut finger sandwiches with car shaped cookie cutters. Add some small snacks such as cheese bits, potato chips, mini chocolate chip cookies or animal crackers.
Serve on Hot Wheels theme paper products for easy clean up.

Hot Wheels Birthday Cake

The Birthday Cake!
Make your own race car cake decorated in your favorite race team colors using a Race Car Cake Pan (if you have the time and talent)...or use a Hot Wheels Cake Topper or Hot Wheels Cupcake Toppers. Last resort...order a theme cake from your local bakery or grocery store. BE SURE TO ORDER EARLY!
