Disney CARS Birthday Party

CARS Birthday Party Ideas & Decorations

Start your engines and get in gear for your CARS birthday party!

When beginning to decorate use the Disney CARS party supplies.  There are many supplies to choose from and this is an easy way to decorate in the Disney CARS theme.

As always, we recommend adding your own style to the purchased supplies. 

  • Use sidewalk chalk to draw a road on your driveway.
  • Hang a racing flag on your garage door or line your walkway with racing flags.
  • Hang road signs throughout the party. Put road signs on the front door and garage.
  • Hang Disney CARS posters or wall decals.  You MUST have a poster of Lightening McQueen and Mater too!
  • You can't have a real stop light at your party, but create the effect with red, yellow and green balloons. Group the balloons in bundles of 3. Stagger the heights so that the red balloon floats above the yellow which is above the green balloon.
  • Tape black construction paper to your table tops and draw yellow lines down the middle to create a roadway. Put cars on the tables for kids to drive on the rode.


Create an invitation with the shape and look of a steering wheel. Write on the outside "Steer your way over to "child's name" birthday party". Or, if you're not interested in making the invites then purchase one of the many Disney CARS invitations available.

Car Photo Op

  1. Here's another fun activity that can also be used as a favor, have the kids do a photo op using a car photo prop.    You'll be surprised how much fun they'll have posing with this prop.


Kids birthday parties can't go wrong with the usual party food such as hot dogs, pizza, sub sandwiches and chicken nuggets. Root beer floats are a fun added touch.
