This Boy’s Firefighter Birthday Party blazes with ingenious details! Jessica, of Modern Moments Designs, created this fireman birthday theme for her son’s third birthday.

The darling fire hat and fire hose cake and themed cupcakes that star on the dessert table would certainly delight any birthday boy; all ideas related to fire trucks and firemen are here!

Since Jessica’s sister lives next to a fire station, the birthday party actually began with a tour of the facility. The boys got to climb on the fire trucks and see the real deal tools, which I’m sure gave them more fuel for the imagination and the rest of the party. Jessica designed terrific chalkboard style, hanging backdrops. The table is dressed in a red cloth (of course!) and festooned with an amazing array of detail.

Fireman Birthday Cake Ideas

The double layer cake from Sugarhouse Cake makes a super focal point. The tiered, rustic pedestals that flank it are topped with Whirly Girl’s FLAMING cotton candy—what a great touch!

Fire Truck Birthday Party Food Ideas

Cupcakes with cute themed fondant toppers are by Two Sugar Babies. The bottom level holds candy jars. I like how Jessica took the simple jars and fancied them up: the lids were spray-painted red and then she glued on Dalmatian figures and embellished the jars with a party medallion.

Faux matchbook covers are another piece of Jessica’s creation. For the treat inside, she dipped pretzels in red and white chocolate to look like matches and held them together with a clear elastic band—clever lady! Jessica made new labels for the fireman hats and the squirt gun style fire extinguishers.

Fire Hydrant Drinking Cups

Fire hydrant drink bottles were personalized, too. Milk bottles were party ready with their striped straws and themed “stop, drop and roll” and “let’s get fired up” flags. These types of details really make a party more fun. Fabric favor bags add to the festivities; they look great and they’re a practical way to send candy, cookies and small toy favors home with young guests.
