Sound the alarm! What little boy wouldn’t love to be a firefighter for the day? For Michele Brown of Sweet Threads Clothing Co, a party hosted at the local Westmont Fire Company in Haddon Heights, NJ for her son’s 3rd birthday party was perfect! It proved to be a fun-filled day that all the guests would never forget! I know I’m loving the cute party cups with fire trucks, adorable cupcakes, and big red party balloons! This is a great demonstration of how you can set up a party at a location other than your home and still have it be fabulously styled!
Little Side Note: I have to say that after you check out the rest of the party pics, you must click over to see Michele’s etsy shop – I’m quite smitten with her tie and bunny shirts. They are seriously the CUTEST.
Look how cute the whole group of kids looks with the Firetruck?
“Rebekah of A Blissful Nest designed the most adorable set of party printables that incorporated bright, vibrant colors with a modern touch. With traditional firehouse colors of red and black and a hint of yellow, everything from the invite to the cupcake toppers to the favor tags really made the party “pop” inside the firehouse.
As soon as the kids got to the firehouse, they were allowed to check out the rows of engines with the firefighters. The kids got to sit up front and “drive” and had a blast checking out all the different types of equipment the firefighters use. The men of the engine company couldn’t have been more wonderful with the kids and showed them all how fast they had to get dressed during a fire alarm. The kids even got to try on some of the equipment!
After the kids met with all the firefighters it was “break time”. To make it an easy lunch, I got bright yellow lunch bags from the party store and filled them with simple treats such as yogurt, applesauce, goldfish, raisins and a water bottle. We finished up the party with cake and cupcakes topped with the most adorable fondant toppers from Cakes and Kids! They matched the theme perfectly!
Each child was sent home with a favor bag that included a delish chocolate lollipop from Suckers by Steph shaped as a fire engine, a personalized cup from I Have A Favor and a decorated sugar cookie from Batches. The engine company also gave each child a fire safety bag that included a coloring book, a fire hat and other goodies!
The best part of the whole day was the family ride through town in the fire engine. What 3 year old can say they rode in a real fire truck! It was the best surprise from the engine company and one we will never forget!”
