“Stop the traffic, close the road, Elynn is turning 2-years-old” was the theme for a birthday celebration honoring Elynn Hamilton Kasper on February 13, his actual birthday.
The party was held at his home with family and close friends in attendance.
As young guests arrived, they were given yellow hard hats and construction work zone vests to play in and were able to take them home as party favors.
A table was set up with construction-themed wooden puzzles and coloring pages featuring different construction equipment for the kids to enjoy. Crayons and markers were displayed in the back of a large Tonka dump truck.
The honoree was adorable in a themed shirt “I’m 2 and digging it!”
Numerous construction signs were hung throughout the party area, as was a “Happy Birthday Elynn” banner.
Guest tables were covered with black tablecloths. In the center of each guest table was a themed centerpiece consisting of an orange traffic cone, a piece of construction equipment, and a construction worker figurine wearing a hard hat.
The food table was covered with a tablecloth mimicking an asphalt road with large construction equipment holding and displaying the food with road signs placed around.
A “build your lumber dog” station was set up for guests to prepare hot dogs with all the fixings.
Guests were also served wood chips (Ruffles potato chips), nuts and bolts (Chex mix), 2x4’s (vanilla creme wafer cookies), manhole covers (Oreos), wrecking balls (cheeseballs), cake, and ice cream.
The two-tier confection was a chocolate pound cake covered with chocolate buttercream icing decorated with crushed Oreos to look like dirt and rocks. Construction equipment was set atop and around the cake hauling and pushing the dirt (Oreos) to look like they were constructing a road on the cake. A large crane, sitting beside the cake, was digging into the side. Candles and a “Happy Birthday” cake topper pick was also atop the scrumptious cake.
Celebrating with Elynn and his parents, Robby and Trudie Lynn Kasper, were his “big sissy,” Katie Dawn, and “big bubba,” Walter Reid; grandparents, Lynn and Dianne Edenfield and Ginny Kasper; along with several other close family members and friends.
