Lord Ganesha is prayed to first, followed by Lord Vishwakarma. Whenever prayers are offered to a Hindu deity, Ganesha is always worshipped first. A tilak is placed on Lord Vishwakarma's forehead and a lamp is lit. Then offer him prayers, fruit, sweets, flowers, etc. Recite mantras to ensure the longevity of your equipment and the success of your business. After the prayer, ask Lord Vishwakarma for his blessings and give some fruits and sweets to the people.
