Classic Red Firetruck Party Details:
This is what Samantha said about planning/styling the party- “Maybe its the whimsical themes and color schemes, the exciting milestone or the adorable guests of honor, but when it comes to planning first birthday parties there is really nothing that compares. Christians first birthday was no exception. The party took place at one of San Franciscos most gorgeous outdoor venues, Crissy Field. And in terms of the citys unpredictable weather patterns, it turned out to be a lucky day!
The Golden Gate Bridge was an excellent backdrop – the reddish color of the bridge went perfectly with our red, light blue, light grey and white color scheme. The theme of the day was red trucks and we incorporated a chevron motif into the décor as well.
The dessert bar was the main focal point of the party, featuring a gorgeous chevron two-tier birthday cake with a big red truck on top. Sugar cookies in the form of red fire trucks and blue and grey #1s decorated the dessert bar and picnic tables and an assortment of red candy topped it off.
The checkered linens were reminiscent of the classic red & white checkered picnic design, but in light blue. We had red plates, light blue utensils and food labels that went with the theme. We had cupcake toppers designed to go with the theme, as well, and used them to decorate the focaccia sandwiches we served.
Decorations included custom made banners to wish the birthday boy a happy first, tissue pinwheels, oversized round balloons and white hydrangeas in mini galvanized buckets.
We stuck with picnic friendly foods that were filling enough for a lunchtime party: sandwiches, salads, skewers and a large cheese and cracker spread.
Since the guests included many kids in a range of ages, we needed to have entertainment to suit everyone. Enzo, one of San Franciscos favorite kids entertainers, came and played an array of instruments to accompany his songs. The kids played on grey chevron picnic blankets while he performed and played with an assortment of toys including a tent that looked like a red truck, a light blue inflatable pool filled with balls and plastic truck toys. The favors included Red Truck board books and white lamb rattles for the tiniest guests.
Judging from the exhausted kids at the end of the party (baby Christian climbed into another kids stroller to fall asleep), it was a success”!
