Party for a four year old

I figure this is the last year I get to heavily influence my son's birthday party choice. I absolutely love celebrating my sons' birthdays. Planning, crafting, baking, staying up until the wee hours of the morning finishing up the little details. I love it all! I'm especially mindful about making Atticus's birthday very special and separate from the holidays. He was born December 14, pretty close to the big day!

This year we will have a construction/tool themed party. I've found inspiration for here (via ) and here (both via Party Perfect).

Party invites are these adorable mini toolboxes. (Which are almost done, but missing the darn handles that I can't find!)
I've purchased plastic hats for the kids from Oriental Trading Co.
I hope to have some great building activity.
I'm also hoping to make some really special cookies (you know, those really fancy decorated kind)

Stay tuned! Party is in early December!

I just love the way you go all out for birthdays and other holidays- and so creative, too! It's fun to see how the Altoids tins you needed are being used.

Maybe after I finish school I will have more time to spend on my crafty side... at least that's what I keep trying to tell myself!
