If you are looking for inspiration for your kids’ upcoming themed birthday, here you can find a detailed description of how a Hot Wheels themed party might look like. The race car theme has a lot of bright colors and there is a lot of potential when it comes to organizing the birthday party for your kids. If your little one is impressed by beautiful, fast cars and likes the fiery colors of the theme, then a Hot Wheels birthday party might be the one to make a memorable day for your child.
What do you need for organizing
The party supplies I will be describing below are: party invitations, table decorations, room decorations, cake, snacks and other miscellaneous ideas that are certainly optional but might elevate the atmosphere at the party to a new level.
First step is to spark interest for your guests with a great invitation
One of the first things you can do is send out a themed invitation for the birthday party. Nowadays there are a lot of designs you can choose on the internet and print it at home, at your print shop or just send it in an email. Sending a personalized invitation card by mail shows that you truly care about that person’s presence at your party and will guarantee you a higher turn-out rate. Additionally it will set the mood and spark the interest of your guests with an invitation template. If you are looking for one, you can check this one out.
Preparing for the day: decorations, cake, snacks, balloons, photo booth/stand
You can prepare themed decorations like banner signs, favor bags, cupcake toppers, balloons, cardboard cut-outs for photos. Colors to use would be bright colors: red, yellow, green, blue, orange. Banner signs can be something generic in the Hot Wheels style or you can get it customized with the boy’s/girl’s name and hang it in the room where the party will take place. Kids adore favors and little surprises, so preparing party favor bags with custom bag tags will make it for them a memorable and highly pleasant party. You can put out thank you cards, to show your gratitude to your invitees for coming to the party.
On the table you can get cups or tableware in the Hot Wheels theme or as you can see in the picture, make the table like a racetrack. Make the table impress the little guests with some custom snacks or beverages: colorful jelly or soda, sweets with colorful designs (e.g. using M&M’s). Cupcakes are very popular as they are easy to prepare and the design can be customized. Alternatively you can print personalized cupcake toppers – there are many templates on the internet you can find either for free or buy them with a custom design.
Of course, a special birthday party isn’t complete without a special cake. Decide on the size of the cake depending on the number of guests, have an idea how it should look like and what would prefer your little one in regards to taste. You can order the cake at your bakery or you can simply take some recipes that you can find online and bake it yourself. For inspiration you can see some examples below.
Additionally you can create interesting themed snacks. If you want to add a new layer to your decorations, you can use custom personalized cupcake toppers or cake toppers.
You should not forget about entertainment for the kids – they have a lot of energy and are always looking for something to do. Ideas range from a Hot Wheels racetrack for them to play with, a board game or interactive games outside, in your backyard. You can make a cardboard cut-out so everyone can take pictures there, for example at the beginning when welcoming your guests.
Organize 1-2 fun games for the kids to enjoy
Most importantly make these memories last for a lifetime by making a lot of photos with your phone or your camera. Everyone nowadays likes to take photos, either to share it with their family and friends or on social media. To make it even more interesting you now have the option to use custom Snapchat filters for the birthday party, so every guest you have can use it while taking pictures of themselves having a blast at your party. If you are unfamiliar with geofilters, you can read about it on Snapchat’s website or take a look at an example with the Hot Wheels theme here.
Birthday parties are a great way to socialize and make new and stronger relationships, especially for kids at a young age.
If you decided to organize a themed party, I hope to have helped you with some ideas on how to enhance the experience for your guests. You can mix and match different elements I have described above, it is certainly not necessary to use them all to have a great party. Furthermore, you can add a personal spin to any of these ideas – there is no limit to creativity for a themed birthday party.
