Loads of Fun Birthday Party

Fletcher turned 3 last Friday and we had the best time planning a construction themed birthday party for him.  He loves lots of things, but diggers have been a favorite for a while now.  If you've been around here for very long, you know that I love party planning.  I look forward to planning my kid's parties all year long.  They both have Spring birthdays so it's such a fun time of year for me.

We were out doing some grocery shopping a few weeks ago and spotted some big construction equipment parked in the parking lot.  We walked over to check it out and snapped a few pictures for his birthday party invitations.  There's a lot of new construction in our area so we were excited about this perfect timing.

I made his invitation in PicMonkey and printed them at Sams.  I also made thank you notes to match with a different picture.  It's hard to find boy thank you notes so making my own has worked well for kid birthdays.  I printed the 6x8in size invitations.  They come with an envelope for $0.38/each.  I love how they turned out.  I also printed some construction pictures to decorate with at the party.

Party Supplies:
Hobby Lobby has a really cute selection of construction themed items.  Most everything in this picture is from there.  I'd pick up an item or two at a time using the 40% off coupons each week.

Dollar tree also had lots of good things for the party.  The cones were 2 for $1, the paper straws, utensils and place mats all came from there.  The candles were from Meijer.

Everything looked so cute on the table.  I love mixing and matching napkins.  I went with four different prints and gave each place setting two different napkins.

Each year we do a birthday book for all the family to sign.  Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site was the book this year.  I trace the kid's hand print and we all write the birthday boy a message. 

Four different kinds of napkins make for pretty tables.
I try to do napkins that I could reuse after the party if possible.  I figured the black and white would work for Halloween and the yellow would be cheery for Summer.

I found a big package of over 100 turquoise solo cups on clearance so I added that color into the party mix.  I loved the color combination.  I also have a fun set of turquoise gingham serving pieces so it was nice to get to use those for the party.

The construction party signs were a hit. The kids really enjoyed working at this construction site during the party.

We did really easy treat bags of all edible things.
Fruit by the foot = measuring tape.
Mini cookies = wheels.
Rice Krispie treat squares = building blocks
and a mix of Fletcher's favorite candy.

  1. I love your party planning posts SO much! :) This one turned out so cute! Love the idea to layer paper napkins at each place setting, that really looks cute. It is hard to find party supplies and decor that works for boys parties, so I love how you thought outside the box for this one. It looks great!

  2. Ahhh, so fun!! You really have a gift for party planning, Whitney!
