Choo Choo, Cameron Turns 2! (Part 2)

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! Check out more photos from Cameron’s “party train" (photographed by Paparazzi Pictures) and photos from his 2 year old portrait session (photographed by Capturing Perfection Photography).

Choo Choo, Cameron Turns 2! (Part 1)

It has been an exciting few weeks at my house because my son entered the “Terrific Twos” club on June 25th! It seems like just yesterday he was my little baby boy, and now he is my growing toddler whose favorite phrase is “I can do it” lol. To know Cameron is to love him because he is so bright, funny, loving and full of life. He brings so much joy to my husband and I, and celebrating his birthday in a special way was high on our priority list.

One of Cameron’s favorite TV shows is Thomas & Friends, so it was a no-brainer to go with that theme for his party.  With the theme picked, I then got started with creating his invitation, which I jazzed up with train images and a home photo I took of the birthday boy in his train gear.

To stay in line with the kid-friendly vibe of Thomas, we chose to have the party at the Wheaton Regional Park in Wheaton, MD, which features a miniature train, carousel, playgrounds and a train station party room. With the many amenities the park provided, this served as the perfect venue, especially since it rained prior to the start of party (so happy we had the indoor room). The birthday boy and his friends had such a wonderful time, and no rain could rain on our parade! The kids enjoyed the activity stations to include face painting and balloon twisting (by Signs, Wonders and Gifts Artistry), train play, train tunnel, coloring and more.

Check out some of the photos from Cameron’s “party train” (photographed by Paparazzi Pictures). Look out for Part 2 of this post.CamsInviteblog
