…and after much planning and creating (more on that in an upcoming post), birthday party day was finally here!
The train party playlist was ready & the boys were dressed in their homemade matching birthday shirts, of course!
We stuck to mostly red, white, blues, and yellow for the colors. The house was decorated with balloons, flag banners (aka triangle buntings), railroad signs, and train tracks! 🙂 Here’s a post all about making the decorations!
We had 3 tables set up inside the house–the food table, the favor table, and the dessert table. Sadly, we have no pictures of the food table, but the main menu features were “train cars” (sandwiches), “choo choo chicken” (chicken nuggets for the kiddos), and “train wheel salad” (a cold veggie pasta salad made with the wheel shaped pasta).
Here’s the favor table–the kiddos who wore them looked SO cute in their engineer hats! 🙂
But, of the three, the crowd favorite was most definitely the dessert table!
No surprise there, right?! How can you go wrong with glasses filled with licorice, color-coordinated m&ms;, train lollipops, a little bucket a oreos (or coal), and a train cake?! In addition to all the fun sweets, the table was decorated with some of our favorite train books, a couple of train toys, and framed train-related pictures!
The cake was by far the biggest undertaking, so much so that it gets its own train cake post! I’m so pleased with the way it turned out!
