A classic boy theme which so many little men seem to love at some stage of their childhood! It’s cute & boyish at the same time with lots of red, yellow and black & can also feature orange and blue. Tin & metal elements could also work into this theme and you could choose to go modern or vintage.
Key images you could work into your decor are fire engines, fire hydrants, fire helmets, whistles, torches, ladders, firefighters, fire alarm bell, hoses, dalmatians, sirens…just to get you started!

There’s been a lot of excited chatter lately on Amy Atlas possibly planning a trip down under. Other lovely bloggers have been writing about how they found out about Amy Atlas, such as Leanne from Mrs A in the Cove and Jane from Homemade Parties!
Reading these made me think about how I discovered the world of Amy Atlas, which I thought I’d share with you today.
8 months ago I gave birth to my precious baby girl. In the midst of the neverending cycle of feeding, nappy changing, sleeping (or hardly sleeping!) I had to plan a little something for her Baptism in 2 months time. I wasn’t planning anything huge but still wanted something nice which didn’t involve the standard “Happy Christening” matching party decorations I had seen in all the party shops.
I then stumbled onto Jade from Super Organisor Mum’s blog where she presented her Christening party for her son Oliver. I was in awe and in love! I had never seen such a cute party before with so many precious details! I LOVE little details!
Oliver's Christening dessert table - Super Organiser Mum blog
Like Alice in Wonderland I felt I had stumbled into a new hidden world I didn’t know existed – a world of sweet parties organised by loving mum’s with so much thought, dedication and love being poured into them. It wasn’t about spending loads of money or outdoing other mother’s. They were about truly celebrating their little one’s!
Off I went on my merry way to explore this new land of parties, dessert tables and candy buffets. It was then that I discovered Amy Atlas.
She was the name I found constantly mentioned on so many blogs and websites I was uncovering.
When I visited Amy’s page I was blown away by the beauty of the dessert tables she had designed. The colours, the layout, the pieces she used and of course the treats!
Since then I have come across many amazing Australian businesses who style gorgeous parties/dessert tables – who also credit Amy Atlas for inspiring them.
I didn’t have the chance to put together a proper dessert table for my daughters Baptism however I am definitely planning on giving it a go for her first birthday party this year!
Through this journey I was also motivated to start this blog to help other mum’s like me who want to put together a celebration for their little one but may not be sure where to find different items for their theme.
I would never ever have thought when I was pregnant that having my daughter would take me down this path.
If it wasn’t for Amy Atlas and what she has brought to the party world, I wouldn’t have started this blog or enjoyed all the lovely inspiration I see each day when I view different parties which Amy features on her blog. Being a new stay at home mum whose life involves loads of the usual mummy things (poop, dribble & clothes stained with food!) I now have a little bit of pretty injected into my every day life through this new found wonderland!
So thank you Amy for not only inspiring me, but inspiring all the other party stylists who have inspired me as well!
With summer coming up what could be better than an ice-cream or popsicle party? Definitely a theme your little one and their friends are going to love!
This is such a fun theme to plan for as you can do so much with a ice cream bar with a range of toppings and sauces or with a bright and fun assortment of popsicles to choose from! Suitable for either a boy or girl and another theme with a range of colour scheme options!
