Construction Party (48 photos)
Let's "dig in"- its time to celebrate Jack's 2nd birthday! It was a little bit chaotic
planning my son's birthday party this year. We had recently sold our
home and were living with family at the time. While we were loving the
quality time with Grandma and Grandpa we weren't loving the fact that
they currently did not have a functioning kitchen. That's right,
Grandma and Grandpa were in the middle of house renovations when we
moved in. So a construction party seemed to be the perfect theme this
The dessert table was made up of all things tools and trucks. The
butter cream blue cake by Jessica Stewart Catering sat atop a spool of
electrical cord and was adorned with various handyman tools made of
chocolate. Cupcake and brownies were dressed up by printables from
Dimple Prints and yellow and orange chocolate dump trucks from Bubba's
Sweets. Everyone got a kick out of the edible chocolate rocks that
surrounded the brownies and tool shaped sugar cookies by The Last
Course Bakery. Hard hat chocolate covered oreos and a bucket of "nuts
and bolts" cookies really completed the table.
Carli of Dimple Prints created brightly colored, fun printables for
everything from the dessert table to the decor and favor boxes. The
favor section was our favorite area! Each child received his/her own
construction hat, vest, tool belt and tool box! Carli personalized
each tool box cover with the child's name and they were a huge hit!
Packed inside were a few toy tools, tattoos, construction truck
coloring books, bubbles and tool shaped candies.
We also included a "work station" where each kid had their own
personalized tool belt complete with paint brushes. They really had a
blast constructing and decorating bird houses to take home.
