When we moved to North Carolina, we didn’t know anyone.  Combine that with the fact that the majority of our family lives 800 miles away.   So to celebrate Luca’s first birthday, we opted to save the money and enjoy a low-key day together as a family.  Fast-forward one year, and God has so richly blessed our family with more sweet friends than we can count on two hands.  That, my friends, calls for celebration!  So, we decided to throw a birthday party for our T W O year old (after convincing my SUPER SAVER husband that it would be worth the money to have all of these memories stored up in our hearts).  Considering that Luca loves all things trucks and tools, it was a no brainer to throw him a construction themed party.

From the stop light fruit skewers to the paint brush rice krispie treats, we had fun being creative with the food (thank you, Pinterest, for your never failing ideas).  Oh, and I mustn’t forget to mention Chad and Luca’s favorite pumpkin cream cheese cookies (recipe coming soon)!

Our sweet friend, Cristina (over at The Batchmaker), made his cake, and let me tell you… it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and ADORABLE!  Head over to her page and order yourself some goodies – you won’t regret it!

I’d love to hear whether or not you throw birthday parties for your littles.  If so, what themes have you chosen?  If not, how did you land on that decision, and what are some of your favorite ways to celebrate?
