My Son's Fire Truck Birthday Party

My son loves firetrucks...voila! He made this one easy for me. Only regrets are that I wish we had a bigger place so I could've really gone all out. Limited space limits my creativity. BUT overall it turned out great. The kids loved how the theme all tied together. From the decor to the activity to the treats to the gift boxes, it was one HOT party!
First we took a trip to our local Fire Station for a tour-Thanks Roy City!

Then we went back to our place for our Fire themed party. The tour took up the activity game plan so we pretty much just stuck to playing, treats, cake & presents this year. (ok minus the 5 seconds I got them to play "Hot & Cold" )


I made this building "on fire" to set his Firetruck gift boxes around

I made a photo shop for the kids

Hot Tamales with "You're Smokin Hot"
Gift Boxes:
Big Red gum
fire stickers
fire tattoos
firehose whistles
fire extinguisher squirt guns

Birthday Boy Chair
We kept orange & red sodas in the Fire Hydrant with a sign that said "Put Your Fire Out"


I made these "Flamin Cupcakes" using a lemon yogurt cupcake & Jolly Ranchers

And finally...the cake.

I know fondant would've been fancier but my son hates fondant so he won this battle.

Note to self: next time I'll put the hard candies on last because as you can see the front headlight started to melt & mess up my frosting the last hour. Learning as I go!

It was one HOT party!


  1. Very cute! I love it!

    Katelynn's Bday is in April, How much do you charge? She loves, fish, under the sea etc.

  2. Oh my gosh Shawnalee I have had this "Under The Sea" theme I've wanted to do forever. We'll have to get together over facebook and talk about it!
