First things first, make sure you have your transportation birthday party invitations ready. It’s essential to set the tone to your party and let your guests know what to expect.
Transportation Party Banner and Garland
Transportation birthday party banner and garland are a wonderful addition to set the theme for your event. All you need is tape to hang them on the wall…that’s it. To make it extra festive, create your own balloon garland to add extra pop of colors to your party backdrop.
Transportation Birthday Party Tableware
No kids birthday party tablescape is complete without themed paper goods. Take the kids table to the next level by incorporating themed transportation paper plates, cups and napkins.
How adorable are these taxi plates? They complement the hexagon plates so well which feature a variety of vehicles, such as police car, ambulance, recycle truck and even a vespa.
To complete the look of your transportation party, you can add extra texture to the kids table with a coordinating felt garland and party confetti. I encourage you to always get creative with what you find in your inventory before shopping for extra party decor.
Transportation Birthday Cake Decorations
If you prefer DIY ideas to decorate birthday cakes rather than ordering intricate fondant cake designs, you are my spirit animal. You can choose to bake and decorate a buttercream cake on your own or order it at your local bakery, then adorn it with ready-to-use transportation birthday cake decorations. Voila! Stress-free birthday cake ready to party!

Transportation Themed Cupcake Toppers
Cupcakes are a must when throwing a kids party. They are easy to decorate for any theme you have in mind. Simply embellish simple cupcakes with transportation cupcake toppers. I love this set that comes with coordinating cupcake liners so you don’t have to go the extra mile to find the perfect ones to match your decor.
I added extra pizzazz to my cupcakes by embellishing them with fringe fireworks party picks. You can easily find them online if you would like to recreate this idea. I found similar ones on Amazon.
Transportation Themed Party Treats
Keeping the ideas simple and fun is the way to go when planning a birthday party for the kids. Busy kids love yummy treats that are easy to munch on so they can have extra time to play with friends.
To create the ultimate transportation themed party treats, purchase mini chocolate donuts (spare tires) and rice treats to create traffic lights using chocolate candies, such as M&M’s. Display them on small pedestals to elevate your tablescape.
