Throw a NASCAR Themed Birthday Party with These Helpful Hints
Do you have a kid who loves NASCAR? Great! There’s nothing more fun than throwing a NASCAR themed birthday party, but what does that mean exactly? It probably doesn’t mean sitting around and watching the race (wait till they’re way older to do that one), but it also doesn’t hurt to have it playing in the background. Having the party on a Sunday, especially if it falls during race season, is an outstanding idea. If not, you can always pick up a few DVD’s for pretty cheap. Besides that, however, what about accessories? What are you going to need in order to make this party absolutely magical?
Start with the Accessories
Like we said, it’s all about party accessories and it starts with making sure you have the following:
Plates – Get something with a NASCAR theme. A checkered flag theme or even race cars will do nicely. If you want to get a little more personal, then it never hurts to get plates with a favorite car or driver number. These are always available, and they’re great during the current season.
Napkins – Once again, just like the plates, getting something with a theme is definitely a good idea, one of which is the checkered flag napkins that you can buy right here: http://www.partycity.com/product/nascar+party+supplies.do.
Tablecloth – Every party is going to need one; it keeps the table clean, but it also lends to the theme of the party. First of all, you can go with the checkered flag, as always, and it makes a great tablecloth. Seriously, no one is going to be able to disagree with that if they’re a NASCAR fan. But, you can also go with a table runner that looks like a race track and really adds some depth to the setup. It might seem like a really simple idea, but it’s going to make the setting much more memorable.
Move on to the Snacks
If you really want to make this an epic party, then NASCAR themed snacks are definitely going to be the way you want to go. There are plenty of recipes online and if you want to make your party really stand out, try getting some NASCAR cake toppers from a party supply store.
Do you want to know what the cool thing about a NASCAR themed party is? You don’t have to spend much money on gift bags if you want to make sure that every child goes home happy. You can put anything you want in gift bags, but we strongly recommend a few NACAR cards and maybe a hot wheels toy. Micro machines work too!
Throwing a NASCAR themed party is a great idea, and it’s one that you can easily fund. Use party supply stores, set up the perfect party environment and most importantly, remember to have fun!
