Rough and Tumble Decorations with Elegant Features
There are ways in which the hostess can utilize Tonka trucks yet still keep the party quite appropriate for its many female guests.

A big Tonka dump truck can be placed in the center of each table and have a potted flowering plant sitting in the rear portion of the truck. Great colors to use when going with a Tonka truck theme are yellows, blues, and whites but it never hurts to throw in some more feminine colors as well. A cake shaped as a Tonka truck is the perfect finish to a party with this particular theme.
