To begin party planning for a NASCAR themed party, choose a day or race to focus your event around. Start planning 6-8 weeks in advance to give yourself time to do everything - from buying decorations to sending out invitations. Invitations should come about three weeks before the party to give guests adequate planning.Party supplies can be gathered from any party store. They will have plates, cups, napkins and silverware as well as decorations.
If you are going for specialty decorations, like personalized banners or posters supporting your favorite driver, a NASCAR store would carry them.A fun party favor may be to have a Hot Wheels car for all to take home. Turn it into a game if you want and have other prizes for those who can race their mini car to victory in a competition between guests. If you really want to have fun with games, take things outside.
Some more options are a race to climb in/out of a car using only the window or even to setup an obstacle course. You most likely do not have a racecar for guests to drive, but a lawnmower or go cart can prove just as fun.Other activities may include games dealing with the race itself. Have each guest sign a sheet matching them to a driver who they are rooting for, for the day. Possibly take bets on how many wrecks will occur during the race.
Give prizes like bags of chips or 2 liters of soda. Little things like this keep even the most moderate race fan involved in the action.When it comes to the menu for your party, try not to overdo things. Of course you want good food, but snack or finger foods will be easiest in this type of setting.
Some suggestions are chicken wings, mini sandwiches, chips & dip, cheesy potato casserole, cookies, brownies and anything else that is easy. Have fun from the green flag until the checkered flag!..Mrs. Party.
