Construction Themed Birthday Party for a 30 Year Old “Boy”

By  | Last Updated:  

You’re Never Too Old for a Construction Party!

How about this great Boy’s Construction Party from Martina at MaR-Valicious BiteS?! You can see this party was to celebrate a special 30 year old “boy”—but the “caution” party theme works for a boy of any age and further proves there is STILL a boy inside the man, no matter what birthday he’s celebrating! On the dessert table tool shaped cookies, “ice cream” traffic cones, caution light cookies, and striped cake pop skewers carry out the construction theme and entice guests to throw caution to the wind… and dig in!

Construction Themed Birthday Party Ideas for Boys

Check out the table first. The simple, black plastic table cover reminds me of a black topped road! The traffic cones and caution tape readily establish the boy’s construction party theme right from the get-go. The caution signs proclaim glad tidings and the curving road sign adds a fun touch.

The bright poms bursting with accents of orange and blue colors are a welcome alternative to balloons, plus they add a fresh dimension to the classic black and yellow theme and create a great focal point for the party.


Want to achieve the look of this party? Here are some of the party supplies you will need:

  • Caution Tape: This can be used anywhere, in this party is used across the front of the table.
  • Traffic Cones: I love how Martina incorporated these construction “icons” into the party.
  • Black Tablecloth: Ground the bursts of color on the dessert table.
  • Tool Cookie Cutter Set: use it to make your own sugar cookies or even cut out sandwiches in fun shapes.
  • Party Poms: for behind the table or hanging from the ceiling.
