We are having a 65th fireman's banquet. Does anyone have ideas about favors for all the guests or anything else? Thank you.
What about those small, metal buckets (remembering the "bucket brigades") and fill with cinnamon discs or "Hot Tamales"? You could use yellow &/or orange shredded paper to take up some room and lessen the expense of the candy. Our dollar store always has the discs as well as Walmart. I think the buckets can be found online or at Michael's in the floral area.
I couldn't think of the name yesterday - little galvanized buckets! I've heard that they really aren't "food safe", some kind of barrier would be a good idea.
Being on a volunteer department and on the ladies axillary at one you realize there is a child in all of the firefighters that still loves the trucks and all that goes with it. So hot wheel type firetrucks make excellent decor or the bigger toy trucks if funds permit(after use send home with your heroes or save to pass out at school when the firefighters go do their fire safety talks) and those plastic party "helmets you can glue plastic lids to top so when turned over the will "sit" then line and fill with chips and such. Check dollar tree and party stores for items that are related. Those little play sets for children can be made very cute for table decor and check your party stores and places like smilemaker and oriental traders because our "hero's" have became very popular party subjects! <p>You can use stuffed animals the dalmatians for decor and you use to get plastic hydrants at the party stores that were inexpensive and you could use as part of your decor. Just using your regular serving dishes for chips, dips etc and putting those play sets around them can bring your theme to life! Get treat bags from one of the above locations and put a small fire truck or other children's party favors in that are in that section. Your guest with love it. My baby's first birthday was firefighter themed because his Godparents are volunteers! Good Luck!
