Add some metallic zing to your serving ware by using galvanized aluminum pails as ice buckets to serve your beverages. Wrap some yellow and black striped electrical tape
around the pails for an automotive feel.
Use small new screwdrivers as party picks to serve appetizers such as cubed cheese, olives, or antipasto.
For a little raceway humor, label your bathroom door with a sign saying, "Pit Stop Area."
Use black and white in your party decorations. You can use black and white checkered tableware, balloons, and streamers for an instant party atmosphere.
Here is a complete set of black and white checkered party supplies from Celebrate Express that comes all in one package and would be great at a racing theme party.
The main activity at your NASCAR party will probably be watching the race, but it's always more fun when you have some other activities to keep everyone involved. Here are some suggestions:
Organize a Pool -- Before the race starts, have your guests pick a driver's name out of a hat. If their driver wins the race, they win a prize!
Play a Timed Pit Stop Car Assembly Game -- Everyone knows that a good pit crew is an essential part of racing. For this activity, divide your guests into pit crew teams and give each one a NASCAR snap together car assembly kit. Drop the checkered flag and see which crew can work together to assemble their car first.
If you have a video game system, you might also consider setting up an action game, such as, NASCAR The Game 2011 or Mario Kart Wii
so your guests can get in on some of their own racing action.
Make Your party a NASCAR Themed Costume Bash -- If you're having a NASCAR party, you might as well go all out! Ask your friends to come dressed as something related to racing...they might be their favorite driver, a stereotypical fan, or whatever else comes to mind. Take a look at CostumeExpress.com for some great costume choices.
