Dig In! Construction Birthday Party

My little guy is at an age where he’s into all kinds of trucks and construction machinery. When he was asked about the theme of his 3rd birthday, of course he picked a theme around all mighty trucks! We put together a super fun construction themed party called “Dig In” and guess what? The little guy had LOADS of fun at his awesome party! 

Construction Birthday Party Kids Table Set UpThe party was held at the park with about 24 people, including 8 little ones.  We used the classic construction color palette including bright yellow, orange and onyx black to create  a rough and tough yet playful vibe. We made an awesome balloon cloud with this classic color combo and  incorporated the cool big rig garland and voila! It really helped set the scene and made the dessert table pop!

Kids Construction Party Dessert Table Set UpSpeaking of the dessert table, we used this road tape curve set to “path” the roads on the table to create extra fun. I personally LOVE this set since it’s so versatile! It lets you create instant roads anytime anywhere to keep those little hands busy (my little one can play cars and trucks with this tape set for HOURS!) On the table, there was this amazing construction cake by amazing DH Cake Studio which was topped with this adorable digger candle. The cake not only had all the construction elements in the design details, it also tasted fantastic! For anyone who’s in the San Francisco Bay Area, we highly recommend Daphne’s cake!

Kids Construction Party Dessert TableIn terms of party activities, we set up a fun bulldozer tent next to the kid’s dining area and boy they had a blast! We also found a dump truck pinata at a local store and filled it with our favorite goodies.

These fun mini trucks come with different designs and each truck has a moving part to keep the little ones entertained. We also prepared these super cool tattly tattoos for the little ones. These aren’t your ordinary temporary tattoos. They’re printed with vegetable-based ink and are totally safe without toxic. Best thing is that they last for days to keep the kiddos happy. We can attest that! ;)
