“I Dig You” Construction Themed Party!

i dig you construction themed birthday party
Not much is cuter than this construction party “I DIG YOU” themed! How adorable? This is such a fun and different theme for boys to enjoy. Get tips + inspiration for this party theme from Debbie of Wants & Wishes! I love her work and her party designing, fabulous! She shows you lots of ideas for using items you already own plus printables to create this fun party table! Debbie was first inspired for this party when she came across little sucker wrenches. Once her mind got racing on the theme (I know how that is!), she designed away. And it is SO CUTE…

Debbie shared, “The first item I created, which inspired the rest of the collection, was the “barricade” food tent labels! They turned out perfect and so cute! Assembly is very simple on these and add the little extra detail to the collection.”

I absolutely ADORE that each child got his own “TOOL BOX” to load up with the “SWEET” tools! Some of the treats included 6 foot measuring tape of Bubble gum. Debbie shared, “This was a huge hit with the kids (and the sucker wrenches)! We had sugar cookie nuts and bolts mini toppers and packs, candy cane levels, among other things!”

Mini front loaders were filled with candy rocks. She  placed them on a upside down tray filled with crushed oreos. The cake was frosted simple then we added our mini construction signs like Birthday Ahead + Detour – Birthday in Progress! CUTE! To connect all the signs, Debbie used Crazy Strawz that I found in The Art Institute in Chicago. You can also find them here on Amazon!
