Red and White Boys Construction Themed Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

A boy’s birthday party idea that features trucks, tools and something to eat will always be a winner! This construction birthday party theme comes to us from Amanda, of Dixie Delights {I first saw it on Hostess with the Mostess}. A charming dessert table offers an unusual cake, cupcakes and cookies. I think the party decorations are amazing because they look so good and yet wouldn’t be too difficult to do—that’s a perfect combo! Check out what Amanda has done with easy to find party supplies and be inspired!

Red, grey and white with touches of yellow carry lots of visual energy in this boy’s party. The backdrop is actually a “slip covered” painting that already hangs on the porch. Kraft paper is dressed up with a theme colored pennant in stripes and checks, over-sized tools and bolts. The table is full of fun touches, too.

A red and white chevron table cover looks terrific with the balloon bouquets on each end. Using a real tool chest as the platform for the cake is a great idea.

Construction Birthday Party Cookie Cake

Amanda says the easy Oreo cake with sparklers stole the show! Cupcakes, tool shaped cookies and yellow dump trucks round out the display.

Amanda used more kraft paper on the kid-sized guest table, which she glorified with red and white polka dots. The polka dotted napkins fit right in here and simple white plates are just what are needed to make the “Dig In” party snack bags stand out. “Crew Cooler” wraps work well for the water bottles; striped straws pair perfectly.

Several activity stations kept the little ones happily engaged. Amanda pre-painted kit pieces with chalkboard paint and provided plenty of colored chalk for the most popular “Build Your Own Toolbox” station.

Additional areas for Mega Blocks, Lincoln Logs, a DIY activity book and her son’s tool bench kept everyone busy. Colorful decorations, something to eat, fun activities and buddies to be with added up to a Happy Birthday celebration full of good times!

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
