It's a snowy Tuesday afternoon here in PA. While the snowflakes twirl around my office window, my mind is wandering - thinking ahead to my son's birthday later this year. Dreaming up ideas for his party theme.
Which reminds me...if you're a follower of my blog, you've undoubtedly already seen my son's 3rd Birthday airplane party, but I never got to show his 2nd Birthday Party!
Here were the invitations... aren't the die cut dump trucks so cute?!? It read, "Dump Everything and head this way...it's time to celebrate Andrew's 2nd Birthday!" I embellished the envelopes with construction stickers from the craft store.
Then I hand-painted directional signs to our house to resemble actual road signs...and posted them onto wooden stakes in the ground and embellished them with balloons.
Here were some party signs indoors to welcome our guests...
Outside I decorated the mailbox with a giant "2" balloon ~
and filled an old wagon with fall mums to welcome people to the party!
I loved the road map tablecloth!
And two, mini construction cones flanked either side of the cake...
I made fondant-covered cookie favors for party guests in three designs:
- Dump Trucks
- Construction Cones
- and giant "2" Cookies
The cookies were individually wrapped in cellophane bags, tied with coordinating ribbon,
and placed in an adorable mini Radio Flyer wagon!
The cake was a simple but super cute Tonka Truck cake:
I kept everything in the same, bright primary color palette to keep it all coordinated, fresh and playful!
It was so fun!
Hope you enjoyed checking it out!
