Chugga Chugga Choo Choo Train Party Ideas
This month our nephew turned two. He’s a sweet kind little guy who is completely in love with trains! (His parents even took him on a Thomas Train Ride for his birthday.) With a love of trains as a starting point, his Mom, our sister, set out to throw him a sweet choo choo themed train birthday party. Family gathered together at their home for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and we were really thrilled to help our sister with the decor. (It was a hit!)
We went on a group shopping trip to Micheals Craft Store and grabbed a bunch of card stock and other supplies. She fell in love with the decorative fans they had in their party section so we had to grab a few of those too. Our plan was to put together a bunting banner, favour tags, and of course a cake topper. We also ended up helping her make a welcome sign for the front door.
We sent our sister home with the letters and bunting flags necessary to make this cute Happy Birthday banner. It was hung above the fantastic lunch buffet that was provided.
This sign was made as a welcome sign for the front door of the house. We cut the letters and train silhouettes out for our sister and she put it together.
Our sister loves Macarons. When our nephew turned one, those were the favours, so naturally when he turned to (and before he can choose what he wants) they were the favours again. She went to Wellington Cakes for the macarons, and bought two flavours; Raspberry and Salted Caramel. The raspberry ones were red, which fit with the colour scheme. We helped her make these adorable favour tags that fit perfectly with the party theme.
Finally, we made a cake topper especially for our favourite two year old. We used red and black glitter card stock and created a train with smoke coming out of the engine. Of course we celebrated that he is now two by adding that detail on to the cake topper. (We think this cake topper might have been a bigger hit with the adults at the party, the kids just wanted the cake.)
We were so pleased to be able to help with this party; especially because a train party wasn’t originally on our radar. It was fun to research and brainstorm ideas to create something fun and fabulous for our nephews birthday that you’re not going to find at your local party store. If you have an idea for something fabulous, we’d be happy to collaborate with you on your next party. We can create your own special party in a box and even give you the tools to pull it all together. Contact us with your next big idea!
