How fun is this FIRETRUCK + FIREMAN THEMED 3RD BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Stephanie Keeping of Spaceships and Laser Beams!

Stephanie said- “My son is obsessed with fire trucks, so for his third birthday we developed a new Firefighting Fun collection that was really unique and I used it as the basis for the overall feel of the party. I used boxes to create a block of buildings and used those as the vessels. The cut out characters brought a little whimsy to what might have been a more austere look otherwise.

The centerpiece of the table was the tall birthday cake on the left side of the table. It’s a flavor called “The Elvis” and is banana cake with peanut butter icing. It tastes amazing. A square Styrofoam cake dummy sat below the actual cake and gave it an impressive height and then the entire thing was covered in fondant. The fire truck topper was also a show stopper. The other treats were firetruck cupcakes (carrot with fondant icing), burning building cupcakes (vanilla with butter cream icing), white chocolate dipped Oreos with dark chocolate dalmatian spots, black licorice fire hoses, and jellybean water buckets.”

    My grandson, Oliver, is turning 3 this year as well and he is equally enamored with fire trucks! He has a million of them, his favorite person is Fireman Matt who he met at our local fire station, and his fondest memory is using Uncle Scott’s (real) fire extinguisher to douse a backyard fire in a fire pit (supervised, of course). : ). These are TERRIFIC ideas for anning his upcoming party. Thanks SOOO very much! : )

    This party is too cute. I’m also have a fire fighter birthday party for my son’s 3rd. All the details are so cute. I love the licorice fire hoses. What is on the end of the black licorice to resemble the nozzle of the hose? Thanks so much. :)
