Construction Themed 2nd Birthday


Easton James is Turing 2, Come & Join His Construction Crew!

Design Inspiration

My son was turning two and I wanted a word that rhymed with 2...and came up with crew.  Then the construction crew idea came to me.  Hense the whole construction theme.  You name it we had it...All things "CONSTRUCTION"...Dump trucks, construction helmets, pylons, caution tape, etc.

Decorating Style

Creative, fun, streamlined. I really like to focus on the little touches, things most people wouldn't think of.

Project Details

I loved working with KMThomas Designs from Esty, she did all my stationary. JennyBSweet played another big part of the day with all the cnstruction themed goodies and sweets.  Eleanor Bathe of Bathe Photography, was phenomenal.

Favorite Items

The indoor sandbox was a HUGE hit and the excavator.


Stay focused on your theme. Try to think of the little touches, things that people will walk away from your party thinking "WOW".  Most importantly have FUN!!!

    I never actually did this for my son’s birthday party but you can usually find the cheaper plastic ones at a dollar store.

  11. avatar Tiffany says:

    Where did you purchase the dumptrucks for the food table??

  12. avatar Ashley Lee says:

    Hi there!! Would you mind sending me pics of your construction theme party?!

  13. […] Project Nursery – oryginalnie ten pomysł był wykorzystany podczas drugich urodzin, co jest w sumie uzasadnione, bo dziecko w tym wieku ma już jako takie zainteresowania i można je wpleść w tematykę urodzin, żeby sprawić mu przyjemność, ale moim zdaniem na roczek też można zrobić coś podobnego. Wykorzystując do dekoracji zabawki możemy sporo zaoszczędzić! […]

    Hello Ladies,
    Sorry I forget to check this page. I’ve just sent an email to ALL of you with more pictures from the party, those of you who provided me with your email address. Please send me a personal emails if you have any questions… I had the signs made at a local sign shop: They said things like Dig In, Fuel Up, Loads of Fun, Build, Lift, Haul, Dig, Fix. I got a lot of the take home gifts from, just search the website for construction. I also ordered things from, like the construction cone cups, and other items. The take home gifts where: construction rubber duckies, construction lollipops, dump truck sticker sets, hand clappers, pylon drinking cups, blow up hammers, tractor toys…I just filled them with ALL things construction. The CAT dump trucks I used to display food I got from Toysrus. The cakepops where construction hats and pylons. Please do not hesitate to ask anymore questions. I hope you enjoy planning your parties as much as I did! :)
