Dressing your home or venue is key to any party. Here are a few ideas to provide you with inspiration for a car-themed first do. Get set, go!
Why not check out our extensive list of first birthday party ideas here?
1. A table of champions.
If you want to make a good impression at a party, a good table spread is the way forward. This parent has even gone to the trouble of including their spare tire.
2. An outdoor affair.
If your baby’s birthday is in the summer, consider hosting your get-together outside. Grab a gazebo if you’re concerned about the weather turning.
3. The race track.
Wow, this hallway certainly looks ready to party. An affordable way to transform your home into a driver’s heaven is to buy some cheap toy traffic cones and attach balloons to them. Add a race flag or two for good measure.
4. Every little helps.
The devil is definitely in the detail. Create a pit stop sign for your toilet door with some brightly coloured card and a marker pen.
4. Car wash.
We love this DIY door curtain – ideal for keeping flies out of the kitchen on a warm summer day too!
5. It’s all about your baby.
After all, it’s their birthday. Dedicate a small (or large) area of your home or venue and add photos, their favourite toys and some birthday bunting.
6. Fuel time.
Recreate a racing track in the centre of your table. Just be sure that the toy cars are suitable for your guests’ age range. They may look cool, but we don’t want them to be a choking hazard to a curious toddler!
6. The hall of fame.
Welcome your guests in style by hanging some cheery balloons and chequered flags to the entrance.
7. In the driver’s seat.
Again, building a road in the middle of a dining table can be a super fun and interactive way to get the children all together when they eat.
8. Birthday wreath.
Let your guests know that they’re definitely at the right house by fixing a first birthday party banner or wreath on your door.
9. Traffic lights.
Again, this DIY traffic light is a brilliant way to welcome your arriving guests.
10. Chalkboard sign.
The trend of the chalkboard sign isn’t going to die out anytime soon and this is a lovely idea to kick-start the celebrations.
11. Flying cars.
Balloons always add a special touch to any birthday. Attach them to toy cars to really make your table centrepieces stand out.
