Well, as much as I LOVE weddings….every once in awhile we have an opportunity to plan for other exciting events such as: charity galas, corporate launch parties, anniversaries, family reunions and birthday parties for adventurous 3 year olds! (or my son Luca!)
Luca’s 3rd Birthday party was held in downtown Tampa at the historic Firefighter’s Museum. Being that Luca’s dad, grandfather and great-grandfather are all firefighters, we can’t hide the fact that we love the Fire Dept! Even Luca’s grandma has worked for the Fire Chief for almost 30 years! Friends and family gathered to enjoy classic cuban cuisine a la Ybor style and the world’s most delicious and adorable cupcakes! The children were given an informative ‘stop, drop and roll’ presentation and a surprise appearance by Sparky the Fire God (a.k.a Luca’s Daddy). I should mention Luca shares the same birthday as his mommy (yes, 25 hours of labor later, I gave birth on my actual birthday..the gift that keeps giving…) so he wanted to blow out the candle together. After partying our hearts out listening to every fire truck song known to mankind, sliding down fire poles, and playing ‘fireman’ in a real fire station, guests were sent off with a bag full of 911 goodies and a cookie featuring our firefighter legacy, Luca.
