{train themed party}

A couple of weeks ago two of my main guys had a birthday.
What better way to celebrate than with a big ol' party!
Brody is REALLY into trains lately,
and, well... my hubby, he likes to make everyone else happy.
So, he was also REALLY into trains for the day.

Honestly, they both wake up extra early every day and build the best train tracks I've ever seen, while Beckam and I are still snoozing, so it was quite fitting. 

I kept things pretty simple.
For entertainment I brought all of Brody's trains and let the kids go at it.
Surprisingly, they were very entertained.
The cake helped too.

Brody picked the menu, which consisted of pb&j sandwiches, fruit, pasta salad, popcorn, animal crackers and Oreos. I also threw in some veggie cups for health reasons. :)

I had gotten used to making tractors cakes after the past few years, so this train cake threw me off.
I think I pulled it off though!

I used electrical tape on yellow plates to look like a crossing, and
I also busted out some photoshop paper products which added some fun elements I think.

Take a look at the party via this major photo dump.




















Train parties are where it's at!
If you are interested, feel free to ask about where I purchased something.
I'm an open book.

  9. That is the cutest train party ever. When my eldest son was a toddler, he used to watch a video called "lots and lots of trains". It was just footage of trains on tracks. Seriously, he watched it so much that the tape (yes VHS tape!) broke and I had to find another one on eBay! Enjoy!
