On Saturday we celebrated Hunter’s 3rd birthday with a construction themed party. It was a blast! The kids had so much fun and Hunter was in heaven pretty much from the minute we arrived, which was a couple hours before the party even started. Here’s a glimpse at our fun day. I’m going to share more about the decor and activities in a separate post. For now, a look at the party!
Food served: beef hot dogs, buns, chop salad with herb yogurt dressing, caesar salad with bacon infused croutons and all the hot dog toppings (rosemary balsamic onions, dill pickles, sour kraut, peach salsa, relish, cilantro poblano sauce, ketchup, mustard and curry mayo).
Snacks at the ‘rock quarry’: blueberries, grape tomatoes, grapes, almonds, pistachios and sunflower seeds.
Fuel station: cucumber, lime and mint water + bai 5 drinks.
The party was held at my parent’s house. They have tons of land and a great set up in the back yard. Plus my dad let us use lots of tools and construction type items for decor, major score! I had planned the party for outside and thankfully the rain held off. Once people arrived even more fun and games began.
The favorite spot was definitely the digging zone!
I made a chocolate zucchini cake (this recipe but I subbed in coconut oil for the butter) and this simple two ingredient frosting. Everyone seemed to like it and I thought it was super delicious as well!
It was a super messy and amazingly fun party. It was great having the outside set up and play spots for the kids. The party was totally all about them. While I bathed my dirt covered kids, the clean up crew got to work. My aunt had fun driving my dads tractor, which he had put out as decor as well.
