PARTY DETAILS, as told by Amy

I tried to use all things orange, turquoise, and yellow for the perfect construction party.  For treats we offered Rice Krispie paint brushes, Paint-Dipped Marshmallows, Chocolate Hard Hats, “S” Sugar Cookies, Wrecking Ball Oranges, Orange Snow Cones, and Cup Cakes served out of a tool box.  Kids enjoyed turquoise and white sack lunches, Cheese Balls out of a turquoise dump truck, & cantelope/pineapple fruit salad to stay with the color theme!

We had a dump truck dump play sand, a heavy haulin dump truck slide, and a cardboard house to paint.  The house was a hit!

I made wreaths to hang from our porch lights out of yellow caution tape, and a large “S” for our sweet Stanton hung on the front door.

    So cute! Im planning a construction themed b-day party for my soon to be 3 year old…Where did you find the play hammers? Ive been on the hunt and am coming up empty handed! Thanks!

      One comes inside of the Home Depot Tool Kit from Toys R Us. I got two different kits, which gave me to hammers.

    Love your coordinating outfits! Did you have the pants and skirt custom made?

    • a flick says:

      No, I just looked around a lot. Mustard was so popular this winter that I was able to find lots of different matching options, and finally went with the skirt and the pants for the bday boy and his cousin.

    Love the way they used color, and love the table setting. Way cute!

  11. […] In case you haven’t noticed, I love a unique party theme. And yes, I know that a construction theme isn’t totally unique, but it isn’t Cars or Thomas, right? Stanton’s 3rd birthday party might look complete, but it is definitely under construction! This “foreman” was treated to the perfect foundation for an amazing Construction Birthday Bash. From Rice Krispie Treat “paint brushes”, “hard hat chocolates” and a “dump truck” slide, mom Amy did a bang up job setting up this worksite. Check it out over at HWTM Blog. […]
