I was thrilled to find today’s Real Party in my Inbox because it is a red hot classic! Kristin Mika from Hampton Paper Designs hosted this adorable Fire Truck Party for her son Jackson’s 4th birthday. It’s simple and stylish yet playful at the same time. Charming water color illustrations are used throughout this party on everything from the invitations to the cupcake toppers, cookies, candy, favors and thank you notes. With fire trucks, hats and Dalmatian puppies, this party has it all for your little fireman!
“Sometimes it seems so easy to achieve that fabulous factor when planning a party for a girl but for a boy it can be a bit more challenging. To set the theme and incorporate Jackson’s adoration for fire trucks, Hampton Paper provided party items embellished with 3 fitting images; a fire truck, fireman’s hat and a dalmatian puppy.”
“Children were greeted at the door with dalmatian paw prints that lead the way to party central. Activities included an art table with stickers and coloring, and pin the tail on the dalmatian. A real fire fighter arrived and visited with the kids – what a treat.”
“To top it off, Kristy Patterson from SweetNothings designed an elaborate candy bar packed with delicious treats. Each jar of goodies was labeled and adorned with a Hampton Paper dalmatian image. With much excitement, Jackson’s friends filled their boxes with candy and cookies at the end of the party. They also received a personalized matted print – fire trucks for the boys and Dalmatians for the girls. Those prints are surely hanging on the bedroom walls of those who attended! “
Special thanks to Kristin for sharing her son’s adorable Fire Truck Birthday with us. This party is definitely a 5 alarm! You can check out more of Kristin’s paper products on the Hampton Paper Designs Website and blog.
