Construction Themed 1st birthday!

In honor of Wyatt being 18 months, I figured it was past due posting his 1st birthday! He has grown so much since then and is doing a ton! 

When he turned 1, he was no longer my little baby but rather an almost walking toddler. He never stopped moving or making noise. 

For his birthday, we had a construction themed birthday. We were planning for about 25-30 people. I wanted everything to follow the theme as you can see in the photos below. I had lots of fun thinking of which foods could be what.

We were grateful for a gorgeous sunny day. We had volleyball, horseshoes and a grass field for the kids to run around in. Wyatt sure had fun in his Batmobile and pushing his walker!

The main event was the smash cake. I made it from scratch because I wanted a low sugar option. The recipe can be found here. It is actually a dog cake but I just left out the milk bones. I really wanted a peanut butter cake since he loves peanut butter. 
Check out the video of him eating his smash cake!

We also made cupcakes for everyone else to eat ("snacks for the crew") and put them in the shape of a “1”.

We had a mix of kids and adults so I wanted to have all different snacks. 
Chocolate donuts - "spare tires"
Cheese balls - "wrecking balls"
Chex mix - "nuts and bolts"
Veggie straws - 2 x 4s
Pretzel sticks - "nails"
Red vines - "cables"
Reeses Pieces - "pebbles"
Whoppers - "boulders"

For the main course, we decided on bratwursts and tri tip steak with corn on the cob and macaroni salad. We also had peppers and onions, mustard, ketchup, and Dijon mustard to put on the brats.
Macaroni salad - "cement"
Dijon mustard - "gold paint"
Mustard - "yellow paint"
Ketchup - "red paint"
Peppers and Onions - "debris"
Brats - "build a brat beam"

The tri tip and corn went so fast but I still managed to get a picture.
Corn - "logs"
Tri trip steak - "rough cut lumber" 

As a memento, I had everyone sign a hard hat.

When everyone left they took a favor or as I called it their days wages. 

What did you do for your son or daughters 1st birthday?
