Construction Truck Party

By Vixenmade
If you haven't noticed yet from my previous post, my twin boys turned 3 this weekend.  And like any 3 year old boy, they love trucks!   So what other theme to celebrate their birthday with than a truck party.  The big, noisy, fun trucks.. Construction Trucks!
I think my boys had a blast and I thought I might share the pics with you all.
Because the theme was 'construction trucks', I tried to utilize as many surfaces and elements of one.
Construction Truck Party
So using tires and a plywood sheet for a table, a sheet of checker plate metal for a backdrop and chevron to mimic the look of tire tracks.

The orange drink served was mini bottles of Sunny D wrapped with my custom made stickers.

And the boys were pretty adamant about having 'truck pops'.
Construction Truck Party
Black aniseed candies filled the bed of the dump truck.
Construction Truck Party
We had pistachio pudding topped with oreo crumbs to have the look of dirt.
Construction Truck Party
'Rock' candy.  Of course.
Construction Truck Party
Chocolate donut tires.
Construction Truck Party
Sugar cookies.  Decorated like tires...

and the other topped with custom toppers from my talented sister from Candy and Cake.

I made pylons out of ice cream cones (that I cut down in size) coated in orange candy melts.
Construction Truck Party
Chocolate dipped pretzels, or 'pretzel logs'.
Construction Truck Party
The garland was made of green utility twine and orange fabric strips to look like 'lumber flags'.

The chevron candy cups were filled with gravel rock candies.

And the awesome cake was made by my sister (once again) from Candy and Cake.  Told you she's talented!!  
Construction Truck Party
I requested chevron on the bottom and the top was surrounded by the construction trucks.  I loved how it turned out!

Which came in handy when playing 'Topple the Tower'.
Construction Truck Party
My husband created a 'wrecking ball' with newspaper (and a weight inside) wrapped in a ball and covered it in black duct tape hanging from a cable.  Luckily for us, our basement is still unfinished, so he was able to hang it from an open beam in the ceiling.
Construction Truck Party
The kids swung the wrecking ball into the tower of building blocks (wrapped boxes).

The game was a real hit.  The kids didn't want to stop playing!

Another big hit were the roads taped to the floor.  I used black duct tape and yellow electrical tape for the lines in the road and it ran the length of our livingroom and kitchen.  
Construction Truck Party
The boys loved driving their trucks around the road.

We used large oil drip pans to hold snacks and punch.
