Modern Construction Party Details

This is what Julie said about planning & styling the party- “When our son requested an “excavator” party, I of course had to oblige….even though there are SO many construction parties currently featured online. How could we make Harrison’s unique?

We began with a modern color palette, focusing on blues & greys and pops of orange versus the very orange/yellow/black traditional combinations seen. The focal point of his dessert/snack table of course HAD to be an excavator, so I had my amazing vendor Created by Jackie hand paint one to coordinate with our invitation and printable design package.

Our splurge item was most definitely the cake, as Harrison LOVES cake!! Custom cookies by Frost to match our design theme were displayed on crushed Oreo cookies to resemble dirt. Simple cupcakes with printable toppers were displayed on wrapped risers to resemble steel. Since I always gravitate toward afternoon parties for the preschool crowd, our snacks were simple- pretzels, grapes and sweets.

The seated children’s tables were styled simply; white base linens, a chalkboard runner with marks to resemble a road and plastic trucks helped pull the look together. Plus, what 4 year old boy doesn’t love to play with a plastic truck while snacking!?! On the back of each child’s chair was a white construction helmet to play with and/or take home.

Favors were focused on dress up and activities, as that is what my kiddos prefer to do and I am not a fan of sending kids home with too many sugary sweets or plastic items that end up in the trash. We choose a fabric apron from Home Depot as our “container” or sorts and filled it with stickers, a fabric tape measure, and safety glasses.

A great time was had by all and most importantly, our son Harrison was in-love with the theme, the decor and was super excited to have his friends and family over to celebrate him turning 4!”

Looking for some other equally-stellar all-boy parties? You’re in luck!

    Hi! What type of tire are you using as the “cake stand”? Where did you find it?
