I love getting decor and favors on etsy online!! I did a car party and my boys loved it.

I love those cupcake racecar holders!

if I don't have time to order online, I go to party city or something.

as for snacks, do a little cute veggie tray, fresh fruit and then the pizza and chips.

IME, cupcakes are better for on-site parties. Sam's sells yummy cupcakes for very little AND you can pick out the little pick-type decorations for them. I'd bet they have Lightning McQueen ones (in fact, I think we had them O. year...)
Also, get the little ice cream cups from the grocery store. Much easier to keep in a cooler, no scooper needed, etc.
Chips, pretzels, drinks, pizza and cupcakes/ice cream seems pretty standard for a party....

I love party city for decorations, they are cheap and have alot to choose from. As for cakes, Costco always does a good job for us, again they can make what you want, and it is a good price.

Snacks to have, are pretzels, crackers, veggies, sandwich wraps so easy to make. Take a tortilla shell, spread cream cheese all over it, put meat, cheese and lettuce and roll, then cut into 2 inch rolls.

Go online and type in good snacks for kids and sure you will get lots of things.

Have fun!

I get great deals at Party City, and Party City online. If you sign up for their email alerts you get offers for at least 20% off and sometimes free shipping. As for snacks, you can always do popcorn, doritos, and other chips. That's what I would want at my party. I don't know if you have a Harris Teeter near you, but when I'm visiting family in DC we always get HT cakes. Their cheap and tasty. Or you can check craigslist. Here in Dallas, we have a lot of people that are trying to start their business so they offer deals on custom cakes.
