It’s about to get red hot with our fireman themed party! If you love a pop of red, and a cool splash of water and amazing pumpkin cake for some spicy niceness, stay tuned for How To Throw A Fireman Themed Party in 2022:
1) Fireman Cake
So, no birthday is complete without cake. Since it’s a fireman themed party and firemen put out fires and fires are hot . . . maybe a spicy cake is a cool idea? Nothing too outlandish, but you know, pumpkin spice is a thing and it’s still delicious. BUT how about you elevate that to the next level by adding a chilli chocolate fondant or chocolate drip for some added kick? You can dial down on the sugar to elevate the spice. In fact, Susie Cakes does a beautiful pumpkin spice cake with pumpkin spice cream cheese frosting and chocolate ganache. They don’t add chili to the ganache, but a hint hint never hurt anyone. It’s a simple, yet delicious way to celebrate.
Besides cake, you can also opt for chocolate donuts (fire truck tires), red liquorice, chocolate covered pretzel sticks with red sprinkles (fire starters) and white chocolate and red sprinkle covered marshmallows (fire balls). Couple that with hot dogs, cheese and tomato skewers and pretty much any savory option you’d like for some variety – and less sugar highs and crashes later!
3) Prop It
You can get fireman themed cut-outs, backdrops and hats, tableware and party bags on Amazon, and even some adorable fire hydrant drinking cups with straws and balloons shaped like flames! Add some amazing fireman vests to give to each child as they arrive for everyone to look the part. Get small red buckets and fill them with marshmallows on the snack table. Yum! You can also get all this and more from our friends at Birthday in a Box.

They offer private charters for special events. Alternatively, Smokey’s brings a fire truck to your house, starting with a safety talk and a tour of the truck, before heading for a neighborhood ride.
