Today we are bringing you some ideas on how to decorate for a Disney Cars themed party. This party was just done in July for my little 2-year-old, and he loved it! The first thing we knew we wanted was a road. We got a black table cloth and yellow duct tape and had a road starting at the door where the guests entered and had to lead to the food in the kitchen. Along the sides of the road we made road signs that were attached to balloons. We had a Route 66 sign with his birthday, a stop sign with his name, a speed limit sign with his age, and a towing zone sign.
For a banner we used the Cricut and cut out letters. Then we cut black paper and used white paper to make it look like a road. We used the Route 66 signs to put his name and added some Cars stickers to some of the letters. For the food tags we saw some ideas on Pinterest of different things. I had my husband make some of his own and used some of the names we found and came up with some of our own. We made some adorable stoplight skewers using strawberries, bananas, and grapes. There are lots of other fruits you could use such as pineapple, watermelon, or kiwi. But these were my son’s favorite fruit, so we went with those.
For decorations in the living room we made a sign for Luigi’s Casa Della Tires and put some tires that go to some monsters truck we had inside a vase. In another vase, we put a bunch of Disney Cars in there and put his age with some flags around it. They turned out super cute and were the perfect touch to add just a few small decorations to the room they would walk through to get to the food.
Downstrairs, we had the presents set up. Once again, I had my husband make a sign that said Pit Stop that we hung across the wall. I wrapped all my presents in Disney Cars themed paper. A few of the big ones we attempted to make look like Lighting McQueen, Mater, and the Dinoco Car. You definitely don’t need to coordinate wrapping paper and make your presents look like characters, but it is a tradition I have done with my boys and they love seeing what their presents will be wrapped like.
When it comes to the cake I am by no means a baker. If you notice, on our other parties we always try to make it simple, yet cute. I searched and searched for ideas and couldn’t find anything I loved. I saw someone made a road out of the number five and I thought I could do that much simpler with the number 2. I made a box of cupcakes. Half of them were just white, and in the other half I grounded up some Oreos and mixed in to make cookies and cream cupcakes. We then frosted them with vanilla frosting and dipped them in the grounded up Oreos. Then, we arranged them into the number two. We used flat marshmallows, cut in half, to make the lines for the road and used some tiny Disney Cars to put on the road.
We had so much fun planning this party and the kids loved seeing the house decorated like Cars.
