Whether the upcoming bundle of joy is a boy or girl, or the mom herself loves racing, this theme is exciting, colorful, and full of fun to surround guests with on this day!

Racing Baby Shower Invitations

With a checkered pattern in the background and a racing flag within the invitation design will set the mood for the upcoming baby shower event! Add some pink or blue depending on the gender of the baby, and have a blast choosing the perfect wordings for the invitation. Here are some examples:

“Vroom! Vroom! Race on over for a baby shower”
“A Little Hot Rod is on his way!”
“Baby on Board!”
“Ready, Set, Go!”

Racing Baby Shower Decorations

Decorations for a racing baby shower can consist of a lot of different designs and colors, but one schematic you absolutely cannot do without is black and white checkered patterns. This is the universal sign of any type of racing and will be instantly recognized and loved by the party guests.

Two giant racing flags in the checkered look with welcome messages in the entrance for guests to see when they arrive set the entire tone up for the event immediately. Likewise, you can do a similar looking backdrop using black and white square plates behind the main event table. You can even recreate this look in miniature form and have every piece of label or signage for the baby shower in racing flags.

Pinup giant cutouts of racing cars and famous drivers on the walls, and hang garlands in green, yellow, and red to resemble colors of traffic lights. Have baby onesies strung up on a clothesline to also serve as garland and have a different racing car printed on each. Place some tires around the main table. If you don’t have any spare tires, grab these inflatable tires from Amazon.

Racing Baby Shower Centerpiece

Centerpieces on tables of red and white flowers in black vases with orange cones would look amazing on table runners that resemble an actual track, complete with dark asphalt and bright yellow line designs. A simpler table centerpiece idea could be made of cutouts of any racing themed items such as flags, cars and even a trophy.

Racing Baby Shower Food

Don’t spare any details with the cake, and create a masterpiece in the form of a replicated racing track! This can be done in spirit with a diaper cake as well, or even with the entire food table, by setting up different eats to blend with each detail of the racing track.

Race Car Party Snack Boxes

Fruit skewers, oreos, donuts, chips, sugar cookies and cakepops with the numbers of the mommy-to-be’s favorite racers are delightful, while salty fares should include nuts, pretzels, miniature burger sliders, and even a nacho bar. The entire feel of this baby shower should be fun along with laid back.

Racing Food Labels

Have fun with labeling the food with these editable racing food labels. Here are some suggestions of some creative ways to label your delites.

Racing Baby Shower Games

Activities for a racing baby shower can include guests playing competition racing video games or crafting little race cars that the mommy-to-be gets to keep forever. Anything relating to a race would make a perfect game for this theme.

If it’s a coed baby shower, how about some fun minute to win it style games? Whilst the mommy-to-be sits and relaxes, she can watch daddy-to-be and friends participate in various games such as Baby Rattle Minute to Win It. In this game, players are grouped into two teams. The task is to transfer all gumballs from one soda bottle to another. Give a point for the winner, and continue until all the players in the team take a turn.

Baby Name Race

Players will need to write down a baby name that begins with each letter of the alphabet. The one who finishes first wins a prize!
