For her son Anthony’s 5th birthday party, Vicky of Party Rite went above and beyond with the construction theme. While many elements of this part fits the construction theme to a tee, my favorite is the backyard construction zone that she’s set up for the kids. My boy and his friends would be in love. These ideas are guaranteed to make your little builders squeal with delight.
The construction themed birthday party consists of two main areas: a dessert table and a backyard play zone for the kids party games. One for delicious delights and one for some fun outdoor activities. Bravo Vicky!
Yellow hard hat and construction trucks sets the theme for the construction inspired dessert station. The table was lined with a yellow table cloth as well, exactly matching the color scheme of the rest of the decor.
On the side are red warning lights that signals fun times to come. A large “A” is on the table as well, for the birthday boy Anthony.
Orange triangular flag decorations, similar to orange traffic cones, also adds to the construction theme.
Each edible delight is labeled by a yellow and black striped card with a cute construction illustration to match.
Glass jars filled with brown, orange, and yellow-colored candies provide for both elegant, cohesive decorations and sweet treats for the little builders.
The two sides of the table has various toy construction trucks, like a cement mixer and a dump truck, on top of sheets of plastic grass. These delightful toys offer a placement for some more treats: piles of mini chocolate bars with personalized wrappers.
I love the little dump truck drawings on the wrappers and that Anthony’s age is written in the stop sign. Vicky has outdone herself with such details.
The centerpiece of the table is a cake decorated with various stripes of gray tones, much like the colors of asphalt and concrete in a construction site.
What is more amazing is the large black 5 on the cake behind the hooklift truck, for a 5th birthday, supported by a large model crane on the table? Such a fun setup!
A sign next to the cake shows when “demolition” of these treats will begin, with a pair of safety glasses hung on the frame as a good reminder…safety first!
In addition to the main cake, Vicky also provided a setting of cupcakes for her guests. The cupcakes are elevated on a black wooden block lined with orange-colored fences. Does that remind you of an actual construction site?
Sticking to the yellow and brown theme, they are baked in yellow cupcake liners and placed in an alternating pattern of yellow and brown buttercream.
Mini hard hats, hammers, saws, and screwdrivers acted as fun toppers for these yummy cupcakes. No child can resist these.
Also presented on the table full of treats were tool cookies, presented in…a tool box, obviously! The fun screwdrivers, hammers, and wrenches shapes are made much more realistic with beautiful royal icing on top.
The kids are sure to love a delicious treat that they can also play with. The snacks provided at birthday parties are must have for happy kids, and Vicky certainly made sure the children have plenty to choose from.
My favorite station in Vicky’s party is the construction site for the children to play in in the backyard. The large “Road Work Ahead” construction sign gave the play zone a good backdrop, especially for pictures.
Orange traffic cones transform the backyard into an interactive play area…perfect for creative little minds to play act as construction workers.
Provided on the tables were bins of toy trucks and building pieces for the kids to go wild with. This will surely entertain them for hours.
Multiple bins means enough for everyone, which will definitely keep the little ones from fighting over toys.
After the party, these adorable yellow treat boxes completed with a dump truck tag and yellow ribbons are set for Anthony’s guests to take home with them after their day hard at work at the construction site.
The “Lower Speed” sign really adds an extra authenticity to the look for the gift box presentation.
With the delightful treat table and the construction play zone, Anthony is one lucky builder to celebrate his 5th birthday like this.
