so when i asked milo what kind of birthday party he wanted, he responded with
"i want a fire truck party. and a power ranger party. and i like cars. and construction stuff."
so, i set out to create a fire truck/power ranger/cars/construction zone themed party.
here's what i came up with...
the invite---i used red duck tape on there, to give it a more manly feel.
the goodie bags for the kiddos were in car lunch bags (that i found for .39 cents at the goodwill) and i also got each kid a construction worker hat.
see my flowers in the dump truck?
had a few of these hanging around.
i got the idea from this blog to stick the silverware in the dump truck.
the red rectangles hanging are duck tape on twine.
i got that idea from "smile and wave" as well.
i tried to make everything orange, yellow or red.
our local grocery store had crush on sale, so i grabbed some.
here is the cake.
and this is the only place that a power ranger made an appearance.
the shape of the cake looked more like a limo, rather than a fire truck.
not my best cake, but milo loved it.
at one point, all the other kids were inside playing, and i caught this sweet moment between milo and his buddy.
they were seriously talking, like 2 old men that were just catching up over lunch.
it was hilarious.
anderson, party of 6.
milo had a fab time.
and in the end...that's all that matters!
