The work bench Daddy made for me!

I loved the construction food Mommy
picked out for my birthday party

I couldn't get enough of the "Spare Parts"
(peach gummy rings)

they were so good....

I couldn't stop eating them!

I tried convincing my friend Chael to have one too...
but he preferred the Reese's Building Pieces

Giving Mommy a great big hug!

Mommy's friend Tabi Furnare made this - She is AMAZING!

Everyone sang me Happy Birthday

It made me so happy, I couldn't stop smiling!

Eating a Dirt Cup

Sugar Overload!

Opening presents
My friends Payton and Ally bought
me a Semi Truck Car Carrier with cars!!
I liked it so much I wanted to play with it right away.
Mommy ended up hiding it so I would focus on opening the rest of my gifts

Eric Carle book
I like to hug things that I like....including this book!

Brown lunch bags held the favors

Inside the lunch bags were tools,
construction stickers, and a  Home Depot work apron!

They are very resourceful!

Mommy and Meeeeee!
Thanks for sharing in my Special Day!

Mommy spent alot of time planning and researching ideas for my Construction Themed Party. In case you wanted to throw a Construction party too, I asked my Mommy to list where she purchased her items to help save you time!

1. She came across a great artist named Kelli Anderson on Etsy and purchased a DIY Printable FULL Construction Party Pack: . It's really awesome and comes with lots of extras including invitations AND thank you notes!

2. For the hats, big construction signs, and caution tape: Amazon

3. For the food name tags and cake: Mommy's friends' Allison Hurst and Tabi Furnare helped out!

4. For the food ideas: Pinterest!

5. For party favors and food: Dollar Tree and Winco


  1. Carson loves his hard had and construction apron sooooo much. It's all he'd wear every day if I let him. :-) Thanks for such a great time!

  2. What a great party! I'm so glad Fancy That Studio could play a part in Gideon's big day! I love custom work, so keep us in mind for his 3rd birthday. Maybe we could collaberate on a theme and create something new next year! Gideon, you have a great mommy for putting all this work into your special birthday party!

  3. Oh my word, you outdid yourself with this party! Everything is so amazing- I bet the kids AND adults had a great time!
