Construction Birthday Party

Saturday, May 17th is my son, Connor's, 2nd birthday!  I can hardly believe it.  I've been spending the last few days gathering photos from the last year and it's incredible to see what a difference a year makes.  One year ago he wasn't walking.  He wasn't talking.  These days he's able to fully articulate needs and wants and practically runs wherever he goes.  Moreover, Connor's personality has really come through.  He's mischievous, daring, curious, adventurous, energetic, and yet sympathetic, sometimes gentle, and sweet. Stereotypically as a boy, he loves things that "go" like airplanes, helicopters, cars, and trains. For his 2nd birthday party on Friday, we are throwing him a "Construction" theme party, as he is quite enamored with diggers and trucks! (And my best friend from college suggested it -- I almost always listen to what she says!)

I ordered my invitations from Swanky Press, one of my go-to sources for invitations and stationery.  Everyone who received it commented how cute it was, and how much they loved the "dump everything and join us to celebrate!"

I added on invitation liners, a fun touch to make the invitation even more special. 

I scored some fabulous items on Etsy for the party such as a personalized t-shirt, door signage, and also a complete DIY party set in a construction theme.   Check these out, click on the photos to bring you to the Etsy listings!

Incredible, isn't this?  Lee Laa Loo Parties 

I am working on a canvas with photos from the last year of his life and music CD party favors this week using my PSA Essentials personalized and Vanilla Peel & Stick stamp. I also have construction hard hats as favors (personalized with the kiddos names, of course!) and lots of other fun details to share. 

Check back next week for all the details of the party!
