A Two-Alarm Fireman Birthday Party

By  | 

What do you do when a firetruck-loving boy turns two?  Plan a two-alarm fireman birthday party complete with creative refreshments, fireman inspired party favors and a house all ablaze with the coolest fireman birthday decorations!  Julie Verville, of Crowning Details, worked with her client to design a modern take on vintage fire truck designs in celebration of one lucky little boy’s 2nd birthday!  We’re sure your eyes will light up when you see the red hot details captured by photographer Saskia Matser.

I am in love with this fireman birthday party!  Classic colors of red, black and white with pops of yellow make an appealing color palette.  Created by Design hand-painted an amazing dessert table backdrop using the printable collection by Crowning Details as inspiration.  The fireman hat and ladder focal point looks incredible! Printable decorations were carried throughout the party styling and included a festive bunting on the front of the dessert table spelling out the birthday greetings.

Flanked by two adorable fire hydrant cupcake stands, the centerpiece of the dessert table was a colorful birthday cake by Whoo’s Bakery, featuring a fondant firetruck and darling Dalmatian.

In keeping with the fireman theme, additional refreshments were all given creative names.  Cheese puffs were labeled “fireballs”.  Oreos were named “fire truck wheels”.  And what would a fireman do without his fire hose, or in this case, red licorice ropes?

Darling tables were dressed in red and white checkered tablecloths from Aztec.  I love the creative use of fireman boots to display the sunshine bright flowers for table centerpieces. One easy-to-replicate trick Julie used on both the dessert and dining tables was incorporating small toy firetrucks.  They really hit home the theme.

The cute factor was high as each place setting included fire hydrant sippy cups and black plates layered with a napkin/utensil combo, wrapped with a custom label. You know little guests could hardly wait to get their hands on the fireman hats displayed at each chair!

Can you think of a better way to let guests burn off energy than jumping around in a firetruck shaped bounce house? Additionally, the driveway at this party was decked out with plenty of ride-on and push toys, a bubble machine and a baby pool full of balls—what a fun variety of age-appropriate activities!

Guests left in a blaze of glory with toy Dalmatians in tow.  Each stuffed pup was embellished with the sweetest printable tag which read, “Thanks for a blazing good time.”
