Last year I decided to throw K a Birthday party where he could invite a few friends. He told me who he wanted to invite and chose the theme for the party.. Construction. I spent weeks working on little details for the event. I had a blast doing it. I wish I would have started planning sooner, because I had a lot more ideas. :)
Here is the table set up.
I made this darling banner with my silhouette. I am quite proud of how cute it turned out.
I made the cake too. My first ever! I was really nervous but it turned out pretty cute. AND YUMMY! The frosting.. oh my word.. you must make it on your next cake, you won't regret it! It just melt in your mouth! chocolate frosting The kids got a kick out of the chocolate rocks too!
I made them all a sack lunch. Complete with a truck shaped PB&J, white cheddar popcorn(boulders), go-gurts (cement), and carrots(lumber). I made all the little containers and labels with my silhouette using the print and cut feature.
Cute little party favors.. I found tool shaped bath squirters and bubbles also shaped like tools.. they also got a street sign sucker and the girls got orange and yellow flowers for their hair. I LOVED how the little thank you tags turned out. Also made them with my silhouette(it was a life saver for this party!)
Sign I made for the front door
Caution cone bunting that lead to the front door. I also had caution cones at the end of the driveway with balloons attached to them.
K insisted on a pinata. I found this cute dump truck one
All of the kids built something out of wood.. boys built race cars and girls built bird houses.
Each child had a construction hat with their name on it. Cut the vinyl with of course.. my silhouette. I think it's safe to say just about everything from this party was made with the help of my silhouette.
I made K a shirt with tools on it.. his request.
We played pin the nail on the hammer.. all of them could see through the blind fold.. except 2 of them.
He got so many presents he loves them all! He was pretty excited for grave digger!
K had the hardest time blowing out that one candle. It was pretty funny.. I wondered if we had bought a trick one.. but nope.. he was just having a hard time hehe.
It was such a successful Birthday! I had such a blast creating everything for it. I can't wait until this years.. the theme is Monster trucks.
