Luca Jack was turning two and since he never leaves home without a toy truck (or two!) in hand we decided a transportation themed party was just what he needed. We love details and a good project so we created everything ourselves with a little help from Pinterest and Etsy. When party planning, there is usually one item that spearheads the theme and for us it was this adorable dump truck invitation we found on Minted.
From there the party’s color palette of gray, red, white and mint was created.
Some of the elements included:
- A photo backdrop with photos of Luca throughout the year, the number 2 and different types of vehicles
- Hand stamped cutlery bags with red dump trucks
- Cupcake flags with the words “zoom, beep and honk”
- Personalized canvas beach tote bags for all the kids
- A funfetti dump truck cake
The hit of the party was the school bus that Nonna and Pop Pop (Luca’s grandparents) made for him. It was such a nice surprise and all the kids had a blast driving it. Overall the day turned out beautiful. We had great weather and were in good company. Luca Jack is one lucky boy to be surrounded by so much LOVE.
