Michael turned four this past September and we celebrated with friends, family, a bounce house, pinata, and an epic cake.
Of course, I spent a considerable amount of time planning the party. (Thanks, Pinterest!)
Our invites were amazing — Michael’s construction hat came from Home Depot and I taped on a few layers of foam I cut out. His shirt was from Old Navy. We were lucky to find a torn up parking lot at our swim school: the perfect photo backdrop.
And I designed some great signage. (Download the set here!)
To feed our guests, we went with really large “party pizzas” from our neighborhood pizzeria and made our own cake out of FOUR boxes of cake mix and FIVE cans of frosting. (And it was delicious!)
The pinata was great fun. I made a “4” out of card board, tape, and crepe paper. Tutorial coming!
Michael helped me fill it with construction-themed bracelets, temporary tattoos, suckers, tootsie rolls, and construction trucks. We passed out mini bags from Amazon for the kids to collect their pinata droppings and had the kids decorate plastic construction hats. (Hats & bags sold together here.)
The kids whacked and whacked the pinata and it finally broke. I might have built it a little too well. Oops.
We had such a great time celebrating our little FOURman!
