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:
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!

Thanks to Louise from Illume Designs who is guest posting today with ideas and supplies for a Lego party!
Lego party themes are so popular at the moment, and I have put together some images and suggested products that I used to style my son Alek’s 4th Birthday Lego Party.
Alek decided on a Lego theme so I thought it would be great to incorporate chevron yellow into the styling. I used Illume Design’s chevron yellow party ware and incorporated the chevron design into the invite, thank you tags, chocolate bars and buffet sign.
The cake was a chocolate mud cake, made into the shape of a number 4. I added the actual Lego buggy’s and Lego men. I also had lego cookies made into the shape of lego heads. The cupcakes were made by myself and I added fondant Lego block to each cupcake
Here is a selection of Yellow partyware to match with a Lego party theme all available from Illume Designs
1. Chevron Yellow Large Plates 2. Chevron Yellow Dessert Plate 3. Chevron Yellow Cupcake Wrapper 4. Chevron Yellow Napkin 5. Chevron Yellow Bunting 6. Chevron Yellow Treat Bag 7. Chevron Yellow Cup 8. Chevron Yellow Tag – all available from: Illume Designs
The Lego invitations, Lego thank you tags, personalised chocolate bars and Lego sign, designed by myself.

Guest Post by Stephanie Keeping from Spaceships and Laserbeams Blog
On my blog, Spaceships and Laser Beams, I’ve featured a lot of adorable farm birthday parties. With fun colors schemes and an old-fashioned feel, it’s an exciting theme to bring in another year. If you’re planning a farm party, here’s some inspiration:
Farm Party Decorations
The atmosphere of “down on the farm” can be easily reflected through the decorations – in some very budget-friendly ways. I love the idea of incorporating inexpensive burlap into banners and tablecloths. The texture works perfectly and the neutral palette lends itself to just about any color scheme. At this farm themed birthday party, they stacked hay to create a table in their party space and then added the burlap. It’s such a fun idea and it takes the party to a whole new level without a lot of cost. If you’re looking for other fabric patterns to mix in with all this neutral color, you can’t go wrong with classics like gingham or paisley.
Birthday Cake and Party Food
A farm-theme, perhaps more than any other birthday party theme, lends itself to simple, basic food. Pile shiny apples high in baskets for color. Serve classic homemade cookie favorites like oatmeal. For the main meal, roasted chicken, hot rolls with lots of real butter and corn would be a hearty treat. I also love incorporating mason jars wherever possible in a farm theme — use them to serve cider or sweet tea. Instead of birthday cake, how about serving carrot cupcakes (topped with tiny carrots, of course) that reinforce the theme of homemade, fresh grown goodness? The birthday boy’s mom at this farm birthday party served them as one of the treats and the idea was very successful.
Birthday Party Activities
If you’re lucky to have a hobby or adventure farm nearby, they make excellent locations for this theme. As a bonus, you’re not stuck with any mess. But I’ve seen many moms recreate that farm feeling in their own backyards. There is a wide range of activities that can take place at a farm birthday party like sack races, beanbag toss and pumpkin bowling. This barnyard carnival party has to be one of my favorites. There was a small baby animal petting zoo, a pumpkin patch and tons of farm-themed carnival games.
Farm-Themed Favor Ideas
As far as party favors go, you can be as simple or as elaborate as your budget allows. Tiny toy tractors and farm animal figurines both fit with the theme and are very easy to find at your local dollar store. If you have a bit more room in your budget, send little guests home with their own “farming kit.” It can include a small pot, seeds and any tools they might need like a tiny watering can.
What’s your favorite idea for a farm-themed birthday party?
