A Traintastic Birthday Celebration!
You know what is absolutely ridiculous? The fact that it has taken me 2.5 weeks to post photos from Jack’s 2nd birthday party. Inexcusable, really! The theme for the party this year was trains. Kid loves a good choo choo train. I want to keep the photos of the details to a minimum and overload you with photos of the kids, because, really, who doesn’t like to see cute kiddos?!
I used a lot of blue ticking fabric for the details of the party, to give it a real vintage conductor feel. I made the special hats (which i mom failed and forgot to even put on Jackson for his cupcake :(), and used red and white accents for a color scheme. The table had a fabric runner with some flowers, balloons, and stars. Simple & Easy.
My friend and cake baker extraordinaire, Megan, made the most fantastic train cake (like her page)!!!. The tracks around the bottom and the smoke coming from the train were fantastic details, AND there was a number two on the back of the locomotive :). I also purchased chevron paper straws for some added flair. I made the banner using my trusty cricut (seriously - a cricut turns a 2 hour job into a 10 minute job. get one), and some scrapbooking paper. The bottom right photo shows the dessert/favor table. My sister made amazing cupcakes, and I displayed Jackson’s Year I and Year II Photobooks. Also, I used a vintage traincase to hold the favor bags which included: Conductor hats, train whistles, bubbles, and other fun kid-friendly things!
The main activity for the littles was to paint wooden trains to take with them as a keepsake. It was messy, but so cute.
Here are some photos of my favorite little man and his buddies enjoying the festivities!

At least someone got some use out of the party hats!
I still can’t believe my crazy, sweet, awkward smiling, trailer loving boy is 2 already!
