Three is the age when kids start to know what they like and don’t like. Cars, trains, firetrucks! That’s exactly what lil’ Billy wanted the theme of his third birthday party to be.
We love nothing more than parties in the backyard. Fire up the grill, roll towels by the pool and sip on sangria. And for Billy’s party we were going to do just that.
We took full advantage of the backyard by bringing in a water slide and have a magician perform a wacky show.
Our favorite Hamptons caterer, Janet O’Brien put out the perfect afternoon spread starting with a huge bowl of rosé sangria and chips, salsa + guac.
Once the guests settled in, Looney Louie grabbed their attention and put on a hilarious and fun performance. Following the show, lunch was served buffet style and each dish was more delicious than the next.
Of course we placed adorable details all over the place. Sunflowers in boots?! Clusters of balloons, honeycombs hanging from the umbrellas and my favorite… the kids picnic tables set for each child with a fireman’s hat, hydrant sippy cup and “fire extinguisher” water bottles that Maggie custom design for the party.
For dessert we used the “stop, drop and roll” way and served a tiered tray of “fire” cupcakes that were sitting on top of gum drops and Tootsie Rolls. Along side were fireman hat cookies and a cake so stunning we were afraid to cut into it. All desserts were made by our friends at Sugar Sugar in Quogue.
Lil’ Billy had a blast with his friends while the grown ups enjoyed rosé and beers. Happy birthday little guy! We can’t wait to see what interests you next year….
