I love making these mini party plans for ya’ll! They really satisfy my need to plan All. The. Parties. even though I can’t afford to host All. The. Parties. Also, boy parties are so much fun! So today, here is my mini party plan for a construction birthday party.
All you have to do is:
- Pick your favorite invite and party favor
- Choose a selection of dessert, decor and game ideas
- Buy the place setting elements…
… and BOOM! your party is planned.
