Police Officer Birthday Party

This police officer birthday party was a fun way to celebrate a special Birthday Boy while also teaching kids about true super heroes!

The Decorations

Many party supply stores offer police party decorations, including adorable cardboard police cars that are super easy to assemble. The flashing blue light, purchased at Oriental Trading Company, was a huge hit!



The Birthday Boy was allowed to open one present before the party started, so that he could wear his “official” police officer’s uniform during the party. Melissa and Doug brand costumes are the best, in my opinion.


The Food

We found these food tent cards on Etsy, which added to the fun. We served:

Police Dogs – Hot dogs

Police Badges – Potato chips

Police Batons – Pretzel sticks

Traffic Lights – Mini fruit kabobs with  strawberry, pineapple, and green grape

Jail Cell Dip – Cheese dip

Crime Fighting Chips – Tortilla chips

Coffee Break – We placed this one by the coffee maker, for the parents

Donut Break – Can’t have a police party without donuts!



Fun with Props

The photo props were arranged in a large flower vase, to serve as part of the decorations and, later, made for some fun photographs of the guests.



Favor Bags

Guests were sent home with favor bags, filled with plastic police figures, Hot Wheels police vehicles, miniature water guns, police badges,  miniature blue glow swords, blue and white lollipops, and a cardboard police car box filled with blue and yellow candies.
