Firetrucks are a fun theme to celebrate your kid’s upcoming birthday! The theme can easily work for a boy’s birthday or a girl’s birthday.
I’ve pulled together some of my favorite ideas for having a firefighter themed birthday party. Shopping small is important to me, so all of the ideas featured below are in my local St. Louis metro area.
Modern Firetruck Birthday Invitations featuring a vintage firetruck sketch are the perfect starting point for planning your party. You can choose from professionally printed invitations or a digital file as the starting point for styling the party.
One of my favorite party tips is to host the party during a non-meal time and only serve sweet treats and light snacks (3pm is my go-to time for my kids’ birthday parties).
These Firetruck Cookies and Firefighter Cake from the super-talented Kaylin Jones Cupcakes are perfect for celebrating a special birthday. They’re detailed and feature everything for a firetruck loving kiddo – fire engines, dalmatians, fire hydrants, and ladders.
I love planning and hosting birthday parties, but as a busy mom I don’t want to spend a ton of time decorating. I use the invitation theme throughout the party for decorations that are quick and easy to hang. My go-to birthday decorations are a cake topper and birthday banner.
Some years I have the time to create these myself, other years I use Dearheart Creations to customize the decorations for my kids’ parties. I absolutely love all of the Firefighter Decorations she made for one of her client’s parties – a Happy Birthday Banner, Firefighter Cupcake Toppers, Firetruck Cake Topper, and Firetruck Welcome Sign.
