3rd Birthday | Construction Party!
Yesterday we had all of Jack’s buddies over for a construction themed birthday bash. He was so happy to frolic all afternoon with his friends, and I was happy to use my crafty side to create a party that had everything to do with construction!
I miiiight have gone a little bit nuts with the decorations. I mean, I made Zac bring his work bench in from the garage to use for the food table. And I bought peg board. So yeah, it was a little over the top but so cute. I made sure to get a couple of orange drink coolers and fill them with Tea & Lemonade, and served heavy hors d’oeuvres (cheese, fruit in a tonka truck, chicken salad, veggies) Sweets included Chocolate “Dirt” cupcakes with oreo & cream cheese filling, a chocolate cake with a gigantic excavator on top, and reeses pieces, because they are the appropriate color scheme, obvi.
I was also very happy to be able to use all of Jack’s giant Bruder trucks as centerpieces and underneath the work bench. I ordered traffic cone cups and hard hats for all of the little ones and set up a table with a black and white chevron table cloth and bright yellow table runner outside. I also used some of the fabric to make Jackson’s party hat, which is a little tradition of mine.
I also lugged Zac’s craftsman work chair out of the garage for Jackson to sit in to blow out his candles.
All of the little ones had a blast on the gigantic playground and in the sandbox, and Wyatt was happy to hang with everyone and a couple of his little buddies got to come as well :)
We love cutie Matthew!
He was pretty excited to meet his new friend Ryland for the first time. He showed his excitement by trying to eat his face ;).
He always has a fun time with his buddy Grandpa Rusty!
Here are a few more photos of the fun, because I HAVE to!
Happiest birthday my construction loving little dude! Thank you for making me a mama!
