Have you noticed little boys seem to have a deep fascination with firemen and their exciting job?  One way to fire up your fireman-loving little boy is celebrating with a fireman themed birthday party!  Xiomara Romana, of A Styled Fete, did just that.  She put together striking soiree ideas with industrial details and mixed in Dalmatian puppy adorableness; it will light up your imagination!  Don’t miss the creative dessert “table” styling, fabulous fire truck cake or party excitement captured by Stacy Hart Photography.

Xiomara shared that inspiration for her son’s party came from his own wishes to have a firetruck + puppy birthday party.  Xiomara wanted to give this popular theme a fresh look.  She chose to add an industrial twist by focusing her color palette on gray, red, white and black and mixing in lots of wood and metal elements in her décor.

Boys Firetruck Themed Birthday Party Invitation Ideas
Plans for this party got underway with darling invitations designed by Anders Ruff Custom Designs (who also created all of the party printables). Imagine the spark of excitement when parents helped their children read “rush this way to William’s 5th birthday” on the invitation!  I love a great theme coordinating invitation and this one even had Dalmatians on the inside of the envelope!

Using her dining room for the fireman bash, Xio’s farmhouse style dining table worked perfectly.  A simple linen table runner was accented with Dalmatian puppies, displayed on galvanized metal cake plate centerpieces. How cute are those pups?

A well-seasoned planner knows little guests often need something to play with while waiting for their turn in the refreshment line.  Xiomara included mini tin containers as part of each guest’s place setting.  They were embellished with a personalized label created to look just like a firefighter badge.  Containers were filled with little firefighter shaped figurines, perfect for kids to play with while they waited.

Desiring to wow guests with an unexpected choice for the main dessert display, Xiomara imagined an industrial shelving unit in lieu of the traditional dessert table.  She recruited her husband to build the awesome unit you see here.  Doesn’t it pair perfectly with the other décor and furniture choices?  The statement piece of the dessert display clearly identifies the party theme.  “Fire” is spelled out in 21” galvanized metal letters discovered at Hobby Lobby.  Xiomara used the second and third shelves to display a birthday banner and replica firefighter gear to fill in additional areas that needed a little pop of color.

Xiomara arranged for her local fire company to visit the party.  They talked to the kids about fire safety and did a demonstration of putting on their gear.  They concluded with a tour of the fire truck. I’m pretty sure a few dreams came true that day! A bouncy house and obstacle course kept the kids fired up, too.
