Construction Party – Tools of the Trade


Construction Party – Tools of the Trade

From the time my son was two, there was no doubt in his mind who he wanted to be when he grew up:


His Daddy.

His ‘Papa’, my hubby, worked as a project manager in the construction field for many years. With all of the BIG equipment, many busy men-at-work, the noise, and yes – even the smell – nothing could compete with a visit to see Daddy at work!

So when it was time to celebrate my son’s birthday, choosing a theme was easy, and in no time his party was … ‘Under Construction’!

He had fun helping me to choose different design elements for his birthday. We took a trip to Home Depot® and purchased contractor pencils and aprons. We had fun working to create our ‘Under Construction’ party favors. Into each apron we added construction theme erasers, stickers, a pack of road sign playing cards, and a ‘Thank You’ note. The result was the cutest construction party favor ever! The cuteness didn’t end there – we placed all of the filled apron favors in a black and yellow tool chest for display. Construction cuteness overload.


I’ve provided a detailed supply list below, complete with links to supplies and prices for each item, so that you can create your very own Home Depot® Apron Party Favors! They are not only super budget friendly, but also were a BIG hit!

I addition to the aprons, I have a friend in the soap business who made these adorable Construction Rubber Duckie soaps. They were handed out along with the contractor aprons to all of our party guests.


I designed a complete construction theme for my son’s fourth birthday which included personalized cupcake toppers, table tents which displayed cleverly labeled ‘construction’ food items* (list coming soon), a refueling station complete with personalized juice box wrappers, thank you gift tags and lots more!
