The fire engine is seen by some as a symbol of strength and safety, and as a fanciful toy by the younger set. Make everyone happy with a fire engine party!
As expected, red should be the predominating color at a fire engine party. Display this firy hue in handmade banners, columns, and swirls hung at various points throughout the room. The host also might make paper mache ‘flames’ to hang from the ceiling, as well as paper and tissue models of fire engines. In addition, the host could hang up ringable bells that resemble those attached to a fire engine.
Food served should be homemade and cooked over a firy grill; party treats could include barbecue chicken and ribs, flame-shaped cookies and cupcakes, barbecue potato chips with salsa dip, and a homemade cake of red buttercream or devil’s food that resembles a fire engine. Also, the host could make mint or nut dispensers (either paper or plastic) in the shape of a fire engine.
Guests could come dressed in the hats and coats (preferably handmade) that distinguish the uniform of a firefighter. They could entertain themselves with a showing of a fireman-themed movie, like “Ladder 49,” or a similarly themed show like “Rescue Me.” Or guests could make homemade themed crafts, like clay, tissue and paper fire engines. They may even venture to put together a model fire engine. Younger guests could have fun with engine-themed storybooks and fire truck shaped coloring books.
To learn at a fire engine party, guests could do Internet research about the history of the fire truck.
Don’t let plans for a festive celebration go down in flames. Get guests’ creative engines running with a fire engine and fire truck party!
