My son and his friends had a chugga chugga, choo choo good time at his 2nd birthday party. Check out part 1 of this post for more details.
For décor, I chose to stick with the red and turquoise colors of Thomas the Train. Lots of crafting and design went into the overall fun flair I was going for, but it was all worth it for my little man and actually tons of fun. One special touch that both the kids and their parents enjoyed was the dining cart I designed that featured a custom train cake stand, train cart snack trays, kid friendly snacks and more. We also had some yummy sweets to include: Cameron's Thomas the Train birthday cake (Kake Korner in Laurel, MD), customized cake pops (Kedawalk Cupcakes of DC) and cupcakes made by me. The guest tables were decorated with everything Thomas the Train…from Thomas embellished spinwheel centerpieces, to balloons, to lunch boxes and confetti. First class seating signs and Cameron’s birthday shoot portraits were added to include personal touches.
We wanted the kids to feel like a train conductor, so each child received their own conductor hat, bandana and train whistle. At the end of the afternoon, everyone departed with a goodie bag, picked up at “baggage claim.” The smile on Cameron’s face when he walked in the party room and throughout the party was priceless!
