Whether you're serving guests with small fingers or just a group of kids on the go, goodie bags of treats are an easy way of providing a quick sugar rush with minimal mess. Hot Tamales, Red Hots, or even red Skittles will do!
Let your imagination go wild when you plan the fire truck birthday cake. Add a ladder, a hose, and a tiny engine as your topper. Short on time? A clean toy can easily take the place of pride atop the highest layer.
Save your sanity and purchase cupcakes from the store so that you can prep the rest of the party goodies. Top vanilla-on-vanilla cupcakes with bright red cherries and printable party decals featuring the stars of the show: a fire truck and your little one's age!
Firefighters need their veggies, too. Put celery and carrot sticks in grab-and-go cups with a dollop of Ranch dressing or hummus at the bottom. Remind kids that the carrots will help them see through the smoke should a real fire arise.
