Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have heard the news that has Lightning McQueen fans VERY excited.
Cars 3 is due for release in cinemas around the country June 22, just in time for school holidays, sending mini race car drivers into a tail spin of anticipation! I must admit though, it’s been a fantastic franchise that has been enjoyed in our family, so I’m sure the new movie will also be well received.
Judging by the popularity of Lightning McQueen and the movie over the years, as well as the trend for movies to quickly become a favourite party theme, we’re predicting a lot of red with requests for Cars parties over the coming months! So we’ve found some great finds from our LLC Vendors to get your engines racing.
Cars party decorations
You won’t have any difficulty finding licensed party ware if that’s your preference, but to avoid Lightning overload, take inspiration from the colours of the characters and the Grand Prix to create your own creative spin on the theme. We love the use of red or yellow, white and black as a base, which you can build on with any licensed products or character inspired desserts.
Cars party tableware
If you are trying to avoid using too much licensed party ware, a great compromise is to alternate between plain bold colours and licensed tableware, or use licensed plates with plain napkins and cups. That way you’re still letting the mini’s enjoy the star appeal of the characters – because let’s face it that’s what they want!
Cars party cakes, desserts and accessories
We all know the hero of the day (besides the birthday boy or girl!) is the cake! Add some character cookies and you’ve pretty much taken them inside the movie and given them the greatest day ever!
For your party favours there is always some fun items in the stores for this Cars party theme – so here are some quality party favour packaging options which you can fill up with Cars goodies the kids will love!:
Are you looking forward to seeing this movie with the kids? If you’re lucky enough to be continuing the excitement of the race and the roar of the engines with a party then I hope this has provided some inspiration and quick shopping finds for you.
Enjoy the party!
