A Construction Party for Jacob’s 2nd Birthday


Our son Jacob is obsessed with all things trucks, so for his 2nd birthday, we decided to throw him a construction themed party at our house! We kept the decor simple by placing bright yellow trucks, balloons and banners throughout our home.

The color scheme for the party was blue and yellow -- Jacob's favorite colors. For dessert, I ordered a simple grocery store cake and asked the baker to spray paint the icing it light blue. When I brought it home, I added yellow trucks and crushed Oreo cookies to mimic dirt, and topped the cake with a big, gold "TWO" cake topper. We also offered guests cupcakes with a variety of truck toppers, as well as gingerbread cookies.

Since we had so many two-year-olds attending the party, I set up a few kids tables and stools so everyone could easily sit to enjoy the food and treats.

For party favors, each child was given a personalized construction hat as well as a bag of yellow and blue M&Ms and a mini truck.

Everyone had a ball and the party was a success!
