It's hard to believe my first baby just turned FOUR! He has been requesting a 'Struction Site party for about six months now and I am just thankful that he didn't change his mind last minute since I am a little less energetic these days being just a few weeks away from having baby #3. We decided to go with a yellow and black color palate and he was just excited that his friends would be coming over to paint bird houses and swim. I have to give a shout out to Sam's Club tiered cakes, they have been the stars of my last two parties and coming in at $32.00 and feeding around 50 people, you really can't beat it...and they are DELISH! I also decided to FINALLY open my silhouette and oh boy, I think I may need an intervention here soon. I got started cutting and sewing garland and before I knew it, I was ready to decorate. I used our trusty ladder and some caution tape to set the mood on the porch and the garland along with some cones helped decorate the inside. All the kiddos had "tool kits" consisting of birdhouses, paint, brushes, cone cups, a hard hat, and an apron. The guest of honor requested Mac-n-Cheese and hot dogs so the menu was pretty basic and loved by all the under age crowd. We decided last minute to have the Shave Ice truck make a stop, because what summertime party isn't better with Shave Ice?!?! It was a roaring success and our birthday boy had a total blast!
I picked up his shirt from this Etsy site
