Ezra's construction birthday party

Yellow, orange, black & grey were the color scheme for Ezra's 4th birthday party last July. There's barely anything soft and cute in this construction party.

This is the dessert table...

The cake is by my sweet neighbor Astrid from Cupcake Rocks. The topper is CAT toy truck.

The cupcakes were offcourse by DapurQ: chocolate cupcakes and my favorite red velvet cupcakes with yellow cream cheese. The construction sign for the topper is edible printing. I used my hubby's tool box to display the cupcakes... It turned out so cool... :)

The tool & truck cookies were also by DapurQ. I bought this tools shape cookie cutter from Etsy and sent it to Mba Riani DapurQ.

I wrapped chocolate Ultra milk boxes with printables said "FUEL". The parents and kids were quite amazed by them. The orange metal toolbox is my hubby's vintage by Hafele.

The favors were tool boxes that my workshop made out of leftover plywood and painted grey. Inside were SIKU construction diecast, Fun Doh plasticine, and tool shape cookie.

The backdrop for games and photo booth was a very simple panel made off painted black plywood and decorated with construction tapes.

Mba Ira from Kertas Krep helped me providing MC for this party. He was funny and the kids loved him.

I almost forget to mention about the kids costume. For Ezra, I bought the vest from ELC, while for the other kids, I actually made them out of bright orange and grey nylon fabric I bought from Tanah Abang. I copy the pattern from the ELC vest (modified it a bit). I might do some tutorial for this vest (I can't promise though). For the construction helmet, I bought them from eBay. The kids were so excited with their costume (I even saw one of the kids - our neighbor - wearing it the next day playing in his frontyard).

If you see some interesting props and custom signs in this party, most of them were made by me and my hubby out of leftover materials from our workshop. It was a great feeling to create a great party with eco-friendly mind...

Happy birthday my little Ezra...
