Oliver's Emergency Services 5th Birthday Party !

{ Oliver and Lachlan with the sign }

It was party day on Saturday, Oliver turned 5 and we celebrated with family and friends. The theme for the party was "Emergency Services". We had a fabulous sign out the front so all the guests knew where to go for the party.

The weather was spectacular, so the party was held outside. A jumping castle provided hours of fun for the guests, with them finding little time to enjoy all of the goodies on the party table!

{ Some of the sweet treats }

The table consisted of smarties, mixed lollies, fruit sticks, chocolate cake pops, chocolate bars and vanilla cupcakes, along with the birthday cake.

{ The Cake }

The cake was deep, dark chocolate cake with milk chocolate ganache and fondant covering. The police car, ambulance, fire engine and buring building were hand modelled from modelling paste.

The colour theme of red, white and blue was a great one to use, with balloons and take home goodie bags fitting in perfectly.

 { The party fun }

The take home goodie bags consisted of lollies, sherbert sticks, a police whistle, bouncy ball and fire engine cookie.
