K.M. Builders (time to party)

Get ready for picture overload!

My sweet family!
Kylie looking for her construction vest 

(no tractors were purchased for this party... Kane is just spoiled rotten by my mom!)

First painter to report to duty!

The one and only birthday boy!
I purchased construction style boots for Kane to wear, but he insisted that he wanted to wear his 'fast shoes'! Birthday boy won that battle!

Landon hard at work on the blueprints

Brad and Kane busting down the wall!

The construction fence worked perfectly! Not only did it keep kids from running in the street, but it added to the construction look!Win win in my book!

Bella, Zach and Kane

Sweet Zach playing with his tools and tractors

I'm so glad this precious girl got to come to Kane's party!

What a masterpiece! ha!

Sweet girls!

Brody was too busy working to stop for a picture!

Since Uncle Danny has done a few pinatas with his 5 kids, we put him in charge! 

Brad giving it his all!

The final blow came from RJ. He demolished that poor thing!

Up until this point every last detail was perfect! It didn't even cross my mind that we needed candles for his cake! The only we could come up with were Lulu's tea light candles! ha!

Those cheeks!

Cousin Chloe asked to cut the cake... ask and you shall receive!

Some of Kane's adult party guests...

Aunt Char and cousin Brooke!

Aunt Holly and (soon to be) Uncle Paul!

We are so very blessed by our friends and family! It warms my heart to know that Kane has so much love surrounding him. We are thankful for everyone that helped us celebrate our precious son as he turned 3!

K.M. Builders (party details)

My precious little guy turned 3 on November 9th! In true Kane fashion, we threw him a construction party. He is in love with tractors, so this party was a hit!

As guests arrived they were greeted by his company sign.

This was the sign in table. I asked for all the guests to sign one of Kane's tractor books as a keepsake.

One of my favorite details, is the wrench pen with a piece of ruler ribbon tied to it! The dump truck was his party invitation this year.

The dessert table!

The kids each got personalized measuring tapes of bubble gum, sucker wrenches and construction cones full of popcorn.

One of the biggest hits were the dirt cups with wooden spoons! 

The cake was held up on a piece of plywood and 4 construction cones and the cake knife was a saw! In my opinion, it's all about the detail!

The cake was served on these plates with tool belt forks. 

Each guest got a personalized toolbox full of tools and a construction hat.
I used a piece of plywood and sawhorses for this table.

The drink table... I just had to have these cute construction cone cups!

Again, I took advantage of the theme and used plywood to hold the water bottles.

 The construction vests with name tags on each one

 With the help of my mom's handy neighbor, I made 2 barricades for the party. 

Kane's Aunt Ashley got him this adorable plate and utensil set for his birthday. 
Each place setting had a coloring placemat for the kids.

Each table had a "toolbox" runner going down the middle. Loved this find at Hobby Lobby!

 There were many stations for the kids to play at. This one was a coloring table. I contacted a local builder and he kindly gave me a stack of blueprints for the kids to color.

Months before the party, I purchased the tractor canvases at Michael's.

This station had styrofoam "wooden logs" for the kids to hammer "nails" into. 

We had a painting station for the kids to paint a house.

Cute aprons so the kids didn't get their clothes dirty.

 There was a tractor pinata, so these were the candy bags.

 We had a "brick" wall that the kids could throw balls at to knock it down.

And finally, we had a large dirt pit with ALL of Kane's tractors for the kids to play in.

Next up, the party and all the guests!
