Car Racing Birthday Party

Create a racing good time for the little boy or girl who has a fascination for cars, speed and Nascar, with a race car birthday party! Keep the racing birthday party theme consistent for the invitations, decorations, activities and cake.


Race car birthday party ideas you can use to create a memorable birthday party include:

  • Invitations: Select a race car birthday party invitation on Punchbowl. Include information like the name of the event, guest of honor, date, time and location. Use invitation wording like "Start your engines for Keegan's car racing birthday party!"
  • Decorations: Cover the tables with a black tablecloth and scatter car confetti on the top. Purchase plates with a black and white checkered print and hang checkered flag banners on the walls and in the doorways. Hand out black and white checkered flags to the kids for party props or make goodie bags out of items found here.
  • Activities: Plan race car activities to entertain the kids at the party. Hang a race car piñata from the ceiling and fill it with toy race cars and chocolate candy race cars. For another activity, turn your yard into a speedway and hold races in either coupe cars, pedal cars or Power Wheels (select the type of car based on the age of the children). Award prizes to winners of the races. As an alternative venue option, hold the party at a speedway or amusement park with bumper cars or racing cars.   
  • Cake: Purchase a race car cake from your local bakery or make one yourself. Bake a cake to represent the number of the birthday boy or girl’s favorite race car driver. Another idea is to purchase a mold for a race car birthday cake and decorate it with frosting. An additional option is to bake a rectangular cake and create a race track with black fondant frosting. Place plastic race cars on top of the race track and include other plastic decorations such as checkered racing flags, orange cones or a Nascar symbol.
Start your engines and get ready for a racing good time!
