  • Decorations: Think bright colors when picking out your car birthday decorations. To make the birthday guest of honor feel special, tie a set of balloons to his chair at the party table. For party table décor, start with a checkered flag tablecloth and a centerpiece of checkered flags in a vase. Accent the table with balloon matchbox cars, blue party hats and race car or Disney Cars paper plates, napkins and cups.
  • Party food:  Be creative with naming what you serve like "Flat Tire" burgers, "Finish Line" franks, "Pit Stop" pita chips and dip, and "Rocket Car Fuel" (for drinks).
  • Desserts: Serve car-themed cubcakes. Make a batch of vanilla cupcakes and spread with stripes of blue and red frosting. Top each cupcake with a Disney Cars topper, a race car topper, or a checkered starting flag.
  • Party Favors: To complete your car theme extravaganza, buy or put together cars party favor bags for each child. In the bags include a matchbox race car, Disney Cars stickers, assorted candy and race car theme bubbles.
