July Birthday Crafts {Bowdabra}

Recently, it was my son's 3rd birthday and we had a blast. I planned a "Fireman" themed birthday party and decided it would be fun to visit our local fireman station. When we arrived, the firemen got a call so we waited till firefighters from a different fire station came. It was sort of fun to see the fire truck speed away with its siren on. In the meantime, we were able to open gifts and play some games. When they arrived, they showed the children their fire truck and even let them sit in the driver's seat. Then the original firefighters arrived and showed the children the water hose. They had fun spraying the water. Afterwards, we went back to my home to eat pizza, cake pops and other fun goodies. I sort of went ALL OUT. I tend to do that but I love planning parties so it was pretty easy for me.
Here are a few photos...

The "fire" cupcakes were made by me.

Overall, it was a really fun party! The children loved the fire station especially Eli.
 And since I'm a Bowdabra Design member I was happy to create a couple birthday projects for the month of July. First, I wanted to create some decor for the table so I created some fireman buckets. They are pretty basic but if you add a pretty Bowdabra bow, the end result is fabulous.

I also wanted to create some fun napkins to place around the table. Here is a simple tutorial for Fireman birthday napkins {HERE}.

  There are plenty of fun Bowdabra tutorials so be sure to check them all out {HERE}. I've enjoyed being apart of Bowdabra's Design team. There are some pretty creative individuals. Hope you can get some inspiration for your own birthday parties. Thanks for checking out Sweetly Made (Just for you).
