A Construction 1st Birthday (September 4, 2011)
I have been so delinquent with my blog posts, I know! And we have a backlog of such great photos to share from our parties during the last quarter of 2011. :)
First up, let me share pictures from our “Construction 1st Birthday Party” for baby Marcus.
The party was done in one of my favorite venues — the Valle Verde 4 Clubhouse. Mommy Maan had a very distinct idea of how she wanted her son’s birthday to look and feel like, and we were very happy to have done her vision some justice. Fun road signs marked the entrance of the venue, as well as the significant activity and play areas inside.
Here’s how the inside looked like!
Chairs in a natural wood finish were used, and assorted toys and construction elements like traffic cones and construction hats became part of the centerpieces.

Time for some details… the cupcakes, cookies, and birthday cake were all done by Angela Colet of Swell Sweets. Personalized bubble water bottles were also added to the dessert table — such cute containers for refreshing H2O!
TIP: Looking for toppers or other decorative elements for your cake? Take a trip to your toy store and see what small things you can put on your sweets! That’s what we did for Marcus’ birthday cake! That’s a toy bulldozer on top :)

Kids got to bring home toolboxes with fun toys courtesy of the Mom!
A simple way we dressed up the chairs — we used ordinary CAUTION tape from the local hardware to spruce up the seats :)
Happy Birthday Marcus!!!
