CONSTRUCTION PARTY INSPO

When it came time to start thinking about Henry’s 3rd birthday party I knew it had to be a construction theme - my boy is truck OBSESSED! As I started gathering my ideas for his party, I realized how easy it is to become overwhelmed with EVERYTHING that is available out there.

This inspired my idea to create these mini party plans for you! Below, I’ve included several of my favorite ideas for each category. I hope it helps! Stay tuned for future mini party plans to come… and if you have a party theme you’d love to see, please shoot me a message!

  • Fun, inexpensive racetrack that makes a big impact in your entryway or a hallway.
  • All parties need plates, cups, etc. This is the set I'm ordering for Henry's party.
  • Signage throughout a party adds a cohesive feel with minimal effort. Here are a couple great options whether you’d like to print them yourself or buy some already done.
    • For the DIY Queen, grab these Printables from AmandasPartiesToGo or these from LinenAndWove!
    • Or, if you’d prefer some ready to go (totally my speed this year!), grab these from Amazon
  • I really love these party picks & these cupcake toppers on Amazon. They are perfect for cupcakes, appetizers, or just a little touch of décor on a food table.

ACTIVITIES

Because this is a 3rd birthday party (& it will be at our house with ample toys available) I personally didn’t want to plan or set up a ton of coordinated activities. I will definitely be setting up a coloring station and if all goes as planned we’ll have a bounce house and maybe an outdoor “digging area”. Otherwise, I’m sure between the food & the treats & the playroom, the kids will just create their own fun! 

If you’re looking for some inexpensive fun, grab these Free Printable Coloring Sheets from linenandwove!

I hope these ideas help you plan your Construction Birthday bash with ease! Just a few clicks around the internet and BAM - party planned! Stay tuned for more party plans coming soon...

As always, if you have any ideas you'd like to contribute, comment below! We love helping out other mamas :)
