Vintage Firetruck Party Details:
This is what Lucia shared about the party- ” ‘Its an emergency’! And Ash and Nic need your help with the rescue! When fireman-obsessed brothers Ash and Nic, turned 4 and 2 respectively, there could only be one theme for their party.
Guests were invited to come and help the brothers with a very important rescue mission: some puppies were stuck at the top of a tall building. Guests completed an obstacle course in order to reach and rescue a toy puppy which was then theirs to take home. And so the fun began! With a beautiful dessert table, face painting by The Part Time Pixie and a treasure hunt there was something for everyone at this party! A New York deli-style cheese table with accents of chalk board and marble was also laid out for the adults. The cheese table was a huge hit with the adults and really made them feel like they were a welcome part of the birthday celebrations, said Lucia of Something Wonderful Happened.
The styling was inspired by a very industrial edge and featured lots of chalk board and kraft paper as well as some faux checkerboard steel- just like the steps on a fire truck. The tradition firefighting colour palette of red and black was made more unique with the use of petrol blue instead of the standard yellow. Every boy loves a fire truck so we wanted to do something that felt a little different for this party.”
