When my girly~girl declared she wanted a firefighter party for her 3rd Birthday, I was not a bit surprised since she makes me promise on a regular basis that she can fight fires when she gets big. Immediately I started searching for party decorations and had very little luck, so I dreamed up my own.
The announcements were designed by our photographer, Darla DiStefano Photography. She also gets the credit for all the photos included in this post. Darla, thank you so much for capturing so many wonderful memories of my little ones THIRD celebration.
Table set up in entry with fire hydrant water sprinkles for the little ones and a basket full of chocolate covered oreos for each guest to take as they leave.
Cupcakes in a jar for the taking and they were oh so YUMMY!
Little metal firetruck held gifts and added a little cuteness to the decor.
I created these tissue flowers and poms that could be found hanging from the ceilings and growing out of pots. Super easy to make, directions can be found on Martha Stewart's website.
Cake table that held cupcakes, pictures, party hat, plates and napkins. My sweet girl could not keep her hands off this before the party got started.
Cake was designed by a local lady and she is amazing. Every single thing on this cake was edible and so detailed.
Birthday crown I purchased from a sassy little site, True Love Found.
Cupcakes made by Mommy & Daddy for Emma's special day. The cupcake holders were polka dot, striped and some had Dalmatians on them.
When the cake was delivered, I thought it was PERFECT. The little girl had red hair, green eyes, a few freckles, hair in pig tails and 2 big yellow bows just like my EMMA. It had to be one of the cutest cakes I had ever seen, so very personal and super YUMMY! Leigh, we are customers for life.
Not your typical party food and very RANDOM. We decided to let Emma design the menu and she chose all her favorite foods.
Chik Fil A chicken nuggets, fruit, peanut butter & jelly (fire hydrant shaped, thanks to a cookie cutter), Cheetos, Goldfish, Juice and Sweet tea could be found on the menu.
So super easy, Chik Fil A actually delivered it to our front door along with lots of ice.
Drinks, Drinks and more Drinks.
All the desserts were red, white, yellow & black.Sixlet candy in our party colors.
Oreos dipped in colored chocolate and sprinkled.
Each little girl got a Firefighter umbrella from Western Chief along with a goody bag stuffed with lots of firefighting goodies.
Goody bags were filled with wooden firetrucks, stickers, tattoos, cupcake in a jar, chocolate covered oreos, fluorescent yellow glow bracelets, a fireman hat, badge, candy, Lego firetruck kit and man (boys) and umbrellas (girls). The little ones each got a bag and a fire hydrant water sprinkler.
One of our friends was kind enough to loan us this hose from his station and we draped it over the fence behind our swing set.
You are looking at one happy little girl that had a great Birthday party. After cake and ice cream, we went to the fire station in our neighborhood for a tour.
We had the best time celebrating with lots of family and friends. At the end of the day, I was so thankful Emma picked out her party theme and menu. I struggled with it in the beginning, but had a great time thinking outside of the box and not sticking with a traditional theme. This party was all about Emma and her favorite things.Bag tags that were also designed by my wonderful, creative & talented photographer. Notice the license plate on the front of the firetruck, our last name.
We love you so much Emma Caroline and hope you had the best THIRD birthday ever.
