Racing 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 ofceiling 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 your favorite race team color balloons. 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 NASCAR birthday banner and a few race car cut-outs on the wall. A race car pinata will make a great decoration and can be used for an activity later. Display favorite race team toy cars or collectibles.


Table Decorations
The easiest way to bring out any party theme is with the paper products for your table. Decorate your table with NASCAR Racing theme paper goods for easy clean up. Add plates or napkins in black check pattern or solid colors if desired. Have a few toy cars around on table.Have a Racing theme favor pack for each child.

Activity and Game Ideas

1. Race Car Pinata - A birthday party isn't complete without a pinata!
2. Hot Car! - Play a kids song. Have players sit in a circle and pass a toy car until the music stops. The player left holding the car when the music stops is out. Keep passing until only one player is left. The Race winner!
3. Red Light - Green Light! - This classic game is great for a racing theme party.
4. Pin the Tail on the Donkey - An old favorite at every birthday party.


Race Theme Party Food Ideas

Race Car Drivers Love to Eat!
Serve the usual race track concession style food: soft pretzels and/or nachos with cheese dip, hot dogs and popcorn. Also, pizza or hamburgers are great racing 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 Racing theme paper products for easy clean up.

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 Race Car Cake Kit or Cupcake Picks. Last resort...order a theme cake from your local bakery or grocery store. BE SURE TO ORDER EARLY!
