We had this fun construction party to celebrate my son’s 3rd birthday! This was easy to put together and we had fun naming all of our foods! Below you will find all the links to the pins I found from how to make your own “Under Construction” cake to free printable invitations and more!
Lets start with the invite. I found a slew of free printables at How to Nest for Less.
I saved the picture then uploaded it to my favorite site, PicMonkey for editing. I had fun adding all of our info with different fonts, a few I was able to download for free. Just google what you’re looking for.
Here is the sample from How to Nest for Less:
You can do the same addition of fonts on the food tent cards, I ran out of time for this, and for any additional decor! There were so many cute things!
Next my focus was on the cake. I wanted to make my own construction cake. I followed the directions from Two It Yourself.
It’s a great step by step that led me to this:
The banner I got at a party supply store and the construction cars we got at Target and they come in a set of 6!
The candle was a regular, ugly store bought number that I colored to match. I got the idea last year for my son’s glitter candle I made by following this instruction.
Gifts that Say Wow had some great ideas for food display. The dump truck of chips was my favorite. I also found food inspiration from Spaceships and Laser Beams and Catch My Party. The cute fuel printable, for the juice boxes, I got from Color Me Meg. (See below)
At Catch My Party I loved the construction hats. I found that they were cheaper to buy from the party store than online. I picked up sticker letters and than an assortment of stickers for the kids, and parents alike, to decorate their hats. I also set up a coloring station for the kids to color various construction vehicles. I found free printables of those at The Color. I made a banner with a cardboard circle banner I found at the Dollar store and then glued the letters from How to Nest for Less that I printed on cardstock. (All this below)
We highly recommend a construction party for your little guy or gal! The possibilities are endless!
I didn’t use them but these cupcake toppers and invites from Forever Your Prints on Etsy are amazing! Plus, If you needed extra time, let someone else do the work!
