construction party








I am SO loving this 'building' party Nancy created for her son's 4th birthday and shared with us! Her construction and tool obsessed son must have thought all his birthday wishes came true when he spotted the cardboard houses his interior designer mom set up in the backyard. The party guests did all of the 'finishing' work on the houses, including painting, gluing on chimneys and decor. Nancy didn't overlook a single detail with this dynamo party- construction hats were given as favors, each child received a construction apron and the building tools-inspired cake is awesome, too. If you are toying with the idea hosting a similar party, you won't want to miss Nancy's play-by-play here and here.
