A Three Year Old's “Construction” Birthday Party

We had a wonderful party for my grandson, who turned three. Can you believe it? 

He loves big trucks and my son decided that a Construction Party was in order.
Everyone had to wear a hard hat. 

And we had a crew lunch, I added the flowers… One, the colors went perfectly with the theme and two, doesn’t every occasion need flowers?

A big truck with “Nuts and Bolts”

Paper plate holder and flatware holders. 

Lollipops for everyone. 

“Rocky Road” Brownies and a cute cake

“Wrecking Balls” 

He had a wonderful time!! And he got a lot of presents. Very important when you are three. 

I am joining these ladies and looking at all their tables. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, Cuisine Kathleen and the Style Sisters.

Apple Gouda Melt

When the summer sets in full swing, I try to find dinners that are not only light and flavorful but do not require a lot of cooking. This sandwich fits the bill. 


A fresh baguette, topped with thin apple slices and slices of gouda. Melt under a broiler. Make sure to watch it carefully… a wonderful sandwich, add a salad and you have dinner.
