construction theme


There’s nothing we love more than throwing a party, and this time we were so excited to design a construction-themed party for sweet Finn’s second birthday. He (like so many little dudes) is obsessed with diggers and trucks, so naturally, his mom came up with a construction theme. We wanted to keep the look simple and modern like we do for our own parties, so we took out orange and kept the main colors kraft, black, and yellow.
To direct guests into the house, we set up a detour sign and lined the walkway with cones HERE. We bought a raw wood saw horse at Home Depot and painted the legs in black for that “dipped” look.
 Here’s the birthday boy, Finn! Isn’t he gorgeous? 
Because we peer pressured Finn’s parents to serve their guests alcohol at their kid’s party like WE do… 
a “Site Managers Only” sign was needed!
 The “road” backdrop in all of these shots is just black wrapping paper with yellow card stock lines stuck on with double stick tape.
Teeny toy trucks HERE.
 We found these goofy tool tattoos at Hobby Lobby! A little stereotypical… but fun, right? 
Teeny treat bags HERE.
 Toddler crack bubbles from the dollar store.
Construction hats HERE.
Dirt Pops AKA jumbo marshmallows dipped in white chocolate candy melts, rolled in crushed graham crackers. SO GOOD you guys. You can display these bad boys in extra graham cracker crumbs.
Tip: dip the lollipop sticks in the candy melts FIRST, push that into the marshmallow and let dry- this will secure the marshmallow to the stick. Then you can dip the marshmallows in candy melts, shake off extra chocolate, and roll in the crumbs. You can keep these frozen for a week or so before the event.
We packaged the goodies up in THESE boxes and personalized them for each child.
 We made the photo booth by simply painting a flattened cardboard box!
 Photo booth props: We hot glued the paper props we made to dowels, vest HERE, hats HERE.
 Finn’s big sis, Annie.
Awwww yeah, every little boy’s fantasy, every parent’s nightmare. Finn’s parents are troopers! 
 The kids ate lunch picnic-style on tarps because… duh.
Happy Birthday, Finn! We had so much fun dreaming up your construction party and hope you got your fill of digging, dirt, and sweet treats!
