Construction Truck Birthday Party

My boys love construction trucks, so it was only appropriate that my youngest had a construction truck birthday party when he turned two!

This past weekend was my youngest son’s second birthday party. He loves watching Bob the Builder and anything to do with construction trucks. Well, really, any vehicle, but especially dump trucks and concrete mixer trucks. So we decided that it would be a great party theme for his birthday. I started trying to gather ideas and what we could do on a budget for his party. And stuff that would be appropriate for a 2 year old birthday party.

We had a few neighbors and friends over, and Ryan had a blast. He and Tyler went to my in-laws for a couple of hours before the party so we could get everything done and set up. Tyler had a soccer game that morning, so we were limited on the time we had to get everything ready. As I usually do, I baked the cake and cupcakes the night before so they would be completely cool and ready to frost the day of the party.

Constructions Truck Birthday Party Food

Dirt Cake and Cupcakes

For his cake and cupcakes, I made some dirt cupcakes and put a bulldozer on top of Ryan’s cake. Although I should have put the worms on his too, he was stealing the worms off the extra cupcakes!

Construction Truck Party Gift “Table”

Instead of a traditional gift table, we used a wheelbarrow. It was a great way to keep the theme while having a place for gifts. Since we are limited on table space, this also saved the space we needed for food and cakes.

  1. Oh how cute is this! I may do this for Liam next year! I feel like I will still be too worried to have parties other places!

    1. Yeah, I am not sure what we are going to do about rescheduling my younger son’s 5th birthday party (it was supposed to be at the end of March) and not sure what we will be able to do yet for my older son’s 7th in June.
