This construction theme party is so, so creative! It was styled by Victoria of vixenMade, who incorporated so many unique touches and super-stylish details while still keeping the theme 100% boy.

Victoria’s twin boys Beckett and Pascal turned 3, and she says, they’re crazy about construction trucks! She says, “Because the theme was ‘construction trucks’, I used tires and a plywood sheet for a table, a sheet of checker plate metal for a backdrop, and chevron to mimic the look of tire tracks.”

The party food included truck pops, Sunny D, rock candy, black aniseed candies (in the dump truck), chocolate dipped “pretzel logs,” chocolate donut tires, and pistachio pudding cups topped with Oreo “dirt” crumbs.

The pylons are made out of ice cream cones (cut down in size) that were coated in orange candy melts.

The garland was made of green utility twine and orange fabric strips to look like “lumber flags.”

The cake was made by Candy and Cake

Each party guest had a hard hat to wear!

The kids played “wrecking ball” by swinging a duct tape wrapped ball of newspaper into a tower of wrapped boxes. (The newspaper ball had a weight inside to give it a little more wrecking power.)

    I love the idea for the table! What did you use to cover the plywood so that was orange?
    Thanks so much!
