last may, our son turned 3 and like all other boys - he is obsessed with thomas the tank engine. i've prepped for months, slaved over websites and blogs for train party ideas and this all triggered these creative indulgences i've had lately. i've been inspired and there's no stopping now.
so here are a few pictures from the party that took place in our local children's museum.
not the best angled shot, but hey, the colorful table was splendid (i think). the bundt cake toppers, name banner and party favor stickers were from egovertopaper of etsy
cake was by rustika bakery and with flavors strawberries and cream for the top and dulce de leche for the bottom layer. both delicious! i wanted to divert away from thomas the train theme but i couldnt resist this "happy birthday" thomas the train toy used as a cake topper here. it was the only non-edible thing in his cake but my little boy loved it and he gets to play with it afterwards.
personalized sugar cookies to go from the dessert bar were from etsy. the unwrapped blue and red lemon train cookies were from here. macarons were from doughmesstic coffee shop of etsy. yum
instead of the usual cupcakes, i opted to order the yummy mini bundt bites from corner bakery. sandwiches, chips and fruits were from there too
here is a shot of the birthday boy engaged in some coloring crafts i set up for them before and after the museum tour. the wooden trains were from michaels and i printed coloring sheets from the thomas the train website. all these topped with balloons, they also served as table centerpieces for the party.
we certainly had fun. especially me where i just get giddy excited over planning and coordinating all the party elements, i enjoyed during all the process and the reward of seeing every one having fun (especially the birthday boy) was worth it all!
