A Fire Engine Birthday Party is sure to please any little fire man. With bright red decorations, fire man stationary and a themed birthday cake, the birthday boy (or girl) will be delighted.
To start with, you’ll need to get the invitations out. You can make your own fire engine themed invitations on the computer and print them out in colour (or just email them to each child’s parents) or you can purchase them on Amazon along with all your other party accessories, games and gifts.
The decorations will be bright red and lots of it! If you’re on a tight budget you can use red crepe paper and red balloons to festoon the party place with colour. You can also get you’re own children involved in painting and decorating with pictures of fire trucks, fire stations, hoses and fire. But if you’re looking to make the birthday area a little more exciting you can purchase many decorations and party packs on Amazon.
You know, it’s ridiculous when people boast of how much money they spend on this or that. “I blew half my paycheck on these shoes, and they don’t even look good on me, aren’t I grand?’
The only time you’ll hear the smart shopper boasting of how much they’ve spent is when they’ve spent quite a bit less than you might have expected.
Look, let’s be honest here, these aren’t the easiest times for anyone (Unless you’re an American banker and just got yourself a new corporate jet on taxpayer money, that is). This isn’t an age of vanity shopping and status symbols, but of practical shopping and conserving what money you can.
