Most boys love the idea of playing in the dirt and building, which means a construction birthday party is a popular theme for boys of all ages.
Rebecca, of Little Sweet Styling constructed one fabulous party, including the majority of the sweet treats you see on the impressive dessert table, including the birthday cake as well as all the kids party games and activities.
Oh, how I love a creative dessert table that coordinates with the party theme! I am really digging the sawhorse table choice and pegboard backdrop.
Don’t those details just scream “construction”? The diamond cut table cover is a pretty awesome “industrial” choice as well.
Little Sweet Styling added so many fun touches to complete the look for this table.
Personalized banners are a great choice. The “Happy Birthday Archie” banner helped anchor the backdrop to the table.
I love the pop of black from the banner, cake stands and platters. It really meshes well with the rest of the red and yellow color palette.
Building a dessert table full of creative theme-coordinating treats is always a great idea. I love the colored construction cone rice krispie treats; so clever.
Chocolate pudding cups and hand stamped wooden spoons were lined in a row and labeled “mud buckets”. I think they look awfully delicious.
And check out the red and yellow 3-tiered organizers full of “nuts and bolts”. Each snack was labeled with such well-thought out names like “drill bits”, “beams” and “pipes.”
I always think witty names make food seem even more extraordinary.
Did you notice the yellow jelly pots? I love the construction tape and zip tie accents, not to mention the “3’s” stamped on wooden spoons.
Other highlights from the dessert table included “dirt cups” served up in bright yellow polka dotted baking cups and incredibly detailed construction themed cookies by Cookie Mummas.
Fruit traffic lights made from strawberries, pineapple and grapes layered on a Popsicle stick were a nice alternative to all of the sugar treats.
Including some healthy options on your refreshment table is always appreciated.
Lest you think I overlooked it, let’s talk about the amazing centerpiece cake. I love that it looks like one big delicious construction site, complete with edible dirt and rocks.
The toy dump truck and digger really add to the realistic look, as do the fun traffic signs.
Another impressive aspect of this celebration was the activity roster Rebecca dreamed up. First, there was a cookie decorating station.
Plates were filled with a variety of shaped sugar cookies. Egg cartons held edible “paint” that the children could use.
Next, guests could practice their artistic skills at a coloring table.
Children loved zooming toy trucks around at the “truck parking” table, too; the simple hand drawn road was a fun addition.
Building blocks were scattered on a blanket for another interactive station. I love the marquee printable signs that denote each station.
Marshmallows and skewers formed the foundation of the next station; a marshmallow building station. How fun would it have been to come up with all sorts of marshmallow formations?
Finally, peek at the incredible demolition zone. Spray painted “buildings” and a homemade wrecking ball?
A construction party doesn’t get any cuter or more fun than this.
What a totally fun boy’s construction birthday party! Yup, Rebecca is pretty much a rock star! Her work has been featured on Spaceships and Laser Beams before and we love it.
