My family was recently invited to the birthday party of little 3 year old who is very much into everything “boy” these days. What better way than to celebrate his birthday than with construction equipment and much yellow & black decorations?!
I was aware of some of the details of the party prior to our arrival but I was so anxious to see how everything came together and let me tell you – I was blown away! Everything looked fabulous and a little boy’s dream (or in some cases a big boy’s dream too)! The party took place in the perfect “man cave” – a large shed that was loaded with tools & equipment which was a great backdrop for the event. Signs & flags noted the “construction area” and were a great way to keep the kids somewhat corralled and out of most of the real equipment though the kids had a blast playing on the Gator & skid loader!
Balloons Tomorrow did a wonderful job on this large banner and I hear the birthday boy really liked it! It turned out to be the perfect backdrop at the food station which was loaded (pun intended) with toy construction trucks – diggers & dump trucks galore. Balloons Tomorrow also was the source of the black & yellow plates and cups and they printed up some super cute napkins with bulldozers on them. Black utensils were placed in a toolbox (how cute?!) which was a perfect fit – it’s little details like this that really build a successful event. Yellow & black balloons were everywhere and were the perfect touch to the large party space and of course there were enough for child to take home a couple when they left.
I am just going to whet your appetite with this post – stay tuned for part two to hear what kind of yummy foods were served that suited both young & old and to see the fun activities that were planned for the kiddos (though I caught a few moms & dads having some fun too!).
