Luke’s 3rd Birthday Party {fire truck theme}

On Saturday, we had friends and family over to celebrate Luke’s 3rd birthday.

This boy is all about trucks and has been especially loving fire trucks lately. So, this party was everything fire trucks.

A huge thank you to my little sister, Laura, for helping with the party and for making all the decorations. She did such an amazing job. If you are interested in someone making super cute decorations or crafts for an upcoming birthday party or event, just shoot me an email and I’ll get you in touch with her!!

She made this cute welcome sign that I put on the front door.


Luke was SO excited for his birthday party. It didn’t start until 4, so for the whole day; “Mom, is it my birthday party yet?”


For the party favors, I bought kids fire chief hats online and then Laura put their names on the back.



And then I found these cute puppies online too. And Laura made the adorable sign to go with them.


And what is a fire truck theme party without some flames. Check out what Laura did on the window!



And finally, she made the banner. So adorable. And amazing that I have a sister who is that crafty. Love it!!



And OMG, I can’t believe I almost forgot – she also made his shirt! A fire truck with a “3” on it with his name.


At one point, Scott said to me “Thanks for organizing Luke’s party and for hiring Laura as the party planner.” Winking smile


And then it was time for the party. . .

play time with friends.





We had pizza for dinner, with fruit salad and chips with dip.

Then, presents.





And then cake! Jodi made the cake for us again this year and it turned out super cute.







And all the kids. . .


It was just wonderful. So much love and friendship for us and Luke. Thanks to everyone for coming and the great afternoon.

After everyone left, we let Luke play with his new toys for a little while and then it was time for bed.. .  while he wanted to take all his new toys with him to bed, we let him pick one. And he picked his new big fire truck.. . And we found him sleeping like this 5 minutes after turning off the lights.


Such a big boy but still my little boy all at the same time. <love>

Linking up with Becky for TYT.

      Thanks for making the drive – hopefully next year it will be a much faster trip to his birthday party!

  3. I am obsessed with the little Dalmatian puppies! And BTW, I’m hiring your sister the next time I throw a party. Hopefully she won’t mind the trip to Naples!
