The Construction Party!

Hello everyone! I'm sorry for the late post today... I'm recovering from a very busy, but very WONDERFUL week-end. My baby (sniff sniff, wiping away tears over here...) turned 2 on Friday and we had his birthday party on Saturday. None of my family lives in town, so from Friday to Sunday we had 6 adults and 3 children under 1 small roof!

As you know from this post, or if you follow me on Facebook, I've been planning a construction party for Matthew. Well, I'm happy to report that construction went according to plan and all of the "workers" had a great time.

I was able to design everything for Matthew's party using the digital download: Bday Under Construction! I absolutely LOVE this kit! I made invitations, signage, decor, a banner and party favours with it! I wanted to do so much more...but ran out of time. Hubby even ordered the cake :( He knew that with everything I wanted to do, I just wouldn't have time to make one... he was right, but don't tell him I said so!

Here is part of the banner. (Sorry, It's really hard to get a good picture of the full thing) I made the central sign with the Bday Under Construction kit and the font: Boston Traffic. I also had that sign on my front door to greet the guest! I tied my banner together with twine. I thought the twine gave it a nice construction site feel to it as ribbon seemed a little too fancy.

My older son received a toy crane this year for Christmas and it fit perfectly into the theme. I used it as decoration and added some fun signage to it!

For all of my decorations, I printed them at a local print shop onto 100lb cardstock. I then cut everything out and taped them together, so everything was 2 sided. It was a bit of a tedious process, but a lot easier then trying to align everything for double-sided printing. Everything looked so professional and was a fraction of the cost of (crappy) store bought stuff!

I also decided to make some fun signage for the adults... I just couldn't resist. I made the porta-potty sign using the characters from the download: All Time Fav. How fun is that! The adults had a good chuckle!

I created the "STOP" sign with the punch editor tool. I converted the hexagon punch into an octagon.

Well, I do have more to share with you, but since I've already bombarded you with a TON of photo's in this post, I'll share the rest tomorrow.

But for now, here's a little peek on what I'll be sharing... I couldn't forget supplies for the construction workers!

As you can see the "Construction Crew" had a great time!

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek into Matthew's 2nd Birthday Party!

Happy Creating!
