Creative Zone Ahead: How to Throw a Construction Birthday Party like Kim Kardashian

For once, we’re not ready for the construction to end. This is no drill — Kim Kardashian turned an ordinary theme into an extraordinary party for her son Psalm’s second birthday (and we’ve never been so envious of a two year old). 

No need for blueprints — we’re walking you through every corner of the beautifully-built backyard birthday. 

The Kardashian-Jenner squad’s go-to planner, Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, teamed up with Little Artist Party to create the world’s cutest (and safest) construction zone. 

The construction birthday party took place at the reality star’s Hidden Hills home. The otherwise manicured backyard was accentuated with a real digger (the perfect photo op), giant sand pits, and bounce house activities. 

Hansen’s Cake Bakery was brought to the site with an adorable, two-tiered cake specially designed for Psalm and his friends. 

It’s no secret the Kardashians love flashy fashion, and this party’s reflective vests and neon hard hats were the perfect complement to the theme (and the best ensemble for demolishing a custom pinata).

5. Dig Into Dips & Theme Snacks

The most popular part of a birthday party is almost always the snack station. With clever serving utensils you can take a tasty dish and turn it into a highlight guests won’t stop talking about (or swarming for a bite).

6. Be Sure to Stop for Cake Pops

Dessert stations are a huge focus at kids’ birthday parties (and the options are endless). From cake pops to cakes and cookies to candy, no other area of your party will have guests buzzing like a completely customized sweets stop.
