Fire Truck Birthday Party Atlanta

Our Fire Truck Birthday Party in Atlanta

By Jessica Vicars

Our (now!) four-year-old little guy is the most truck-obsessed kiddo I know! Ever since Luke could say even a few words, he has pointed out every dump truck, cement truck, trash truck, moving truck… all of them - that he sees. But, his favorite has always been fire trucks! So, we knew a fire truck birthday party would be in our future for sure. This year, I discovered the coolest way to host a fire truck birthday party in Atlanta with Fire Truck Rentals of Atlanta. Sounds the alarm – here are all of the details from our most recent kids birthday party in Atlanta!

Luke’s Atlanta Birthday Party Details

This little firecracker could not wait for his birthday party! In fact, we experienced a minor meltdown when he realized that the fire truck and his friends would not be coming on his actual birthday – but a few days later. On the day of his birthday party, Luke woke up bursting with excitement!

We worked with a few amazing local businesses to bring our birthday party to life! First, our balloon garland was from Meg’s Party Co. Meg offers balloon pick-up or full-installation, party backdrops, bounce house rentals, and even DIY balloon kits. Her balloon pick-up options and DIY balloon kits allow parents to decorate for the ultimate kids birthday party without the full expense of an installation. And – she even provides wall hooks and painters tape for a perfect, no-mess set-up. Balloon garland pick-up location is in Cumming, and is convenient to families in Alpharetta, Milton, Johns Creek, Suwanee, Roswell, and more.

For birthday party favors, Ashley at A to Z Dough created the cutest fire truck themed dough jar. The dough jars included homemade red and orange dough, fire truck trinkets and jewels. My kids loved playing with them! Custom dough jars, the perfect birthday party favor size, are priced at $7 each, and an additional $1 to add a custom sticker (ours said “Sound the Alarm, Luke is 4!” with a cute fire truck).

We sang happy birthday and enjoyed the most delicious fire truck birthday cake and cake pops from Whisk & Pearl. Carolynn made an amazing vanilla cake, detailed with the cutest edible fire truck decorations. Our cake pop flavors were cookies & cream and confetti – and these were amazing! Plus, the kids love the novelty of cake pops in addition to birthday cake - Whisk & Pearl added the cutest custom fire truck details to match our kids birthday party theme.

Sound the Alarm: Luke is 4!

Now - the fire truck! For kids birthday parties, Fire Truck Rentals of Atlanta arrives with sirens and lights on! (Be sure the kids are ready to watch!). All of my boys and their friends just stared in awe as they pulled up. Tyler and his team hopped out, coming right over to introduce themselves and tell my little guy “happy birthday.” After setting up, the kids got to spray targets designed to be flames, tour the fire truck, and spray the real fire hose. We even got to ride the fire truck around the neighborhood! This birthday boy was over the moon.

Kids birthday party tip! The birthday party crew will want to spend time walking around and checking out the truck. They also play near the truck as they spray the fire hose. Consider where the truck will park and ensure there is enough space for children to play and enjoy the fire truck without a heavy volume of traffic passing through. We used our neighborhood clubhouse, allowing Fire Truck Rentals of Atlanta to park in the parking lot. Then, for the duration of the birthday party, kids could easily move in and out from the birthday party venue to the fire truck.

For us, our kids’ birthday parties are about enjoying special moments and creating celebrations for our kids that are super fun and memorable. The next day, Luke work up and asked, “Mom, can we do my birthday party again today?!” I’d say we had a pretty special day.

If your kiddo loves fire trucks as much as mine, this kids birthday party in Atlanta is a must!
