Construction Party Supplies

Guest posting on the blog today is Renata of The Paper Lantern, sharing party ideas and party supplies for a Construction party theme – which is one of the most popular themes for boys! Enjoy all the fantastic finds:


Construction Theme

A construction theme is always a big hit with boys and with a bit of creativity you can make a huge impact without spending a fortune, which is what we are all about at The Paper Lantern!



Have a look around your home for items that could serve as props such as tonka trucks, pavers, bricks and ‘safe’ tools depending on the age of the birthday boy of course.

A customer of ours piled up pavers as the cake stand…a cost effective solution that suits the theme perfectly!

Pair your own items with some of our black, yellow and orange Construction themed partyware from our online store and you will have an awesome boy’s party!


Fill our yellow parts storage bins with food for the hungry construction workers. Get creative with your food labels…we had Drain Pipes (Liquorice Bites), Drill Bits (Twisties), Nuts n Bolts (Nutri Grain Mix), Pebbles (Choc Sultanas), Building Blocks (Choc Honeycomb) and Wrecking Balls (Cheetos). Kids will have so much fun with this!


Our mini pots, wooden teaspoons and black & white bakers twine combine to make a delicious ‘mud pot’ moose for the kids and are a great way to keep the theme going.
Our Construction Printables Set for only $8.95 is available for instant download and includes invitations, drink labels, signs and so much more to enhance the theme!


Hazard tape, witches hats, construction paper straws and black & white striped disposable partyware are some of our other great Construction themed products!
These are just a few ideas to get you on your way to constructing an awesome party!
