YAY! My computer cord is finally here and I can share the train party I styled this past weekend! As always, I used DimplePrints to help my friends plan their son’s first birthday party using a Train Birthday Party theme! My friend Carli, owner of DimplePrints, has AMAZING themes to choose from, but this may be one of my all time favorites and is a new listing in her shop! Check out Cameron’s red/blue train first birthday party….
We used twisted crepe paper as the backdrop for the dessert table. This takes a while to accomplish, but I LOVE the end result!
Red velvet cake pops in the shapes of a train, cabooses, railroad crossing light, and crossing signal were provided by Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins on Etsy (she’s kind of amazing, check her out!)
I made chocolate covered red gingham oreos to match the party decor. My tutorial for how to make these can be found HERE.
An apothecary jar full of rock candy was a hit with the kids, along with train whistles as favors.
Matching the invitations, fondant cupcake toppers were provided by Your Cupcake Story on Etsy.
We needed a table to go under the chandelier, so we placed a “railroad tracks” table underneath with the silverware and plates for the guests.
The hostess opted for a fun taco bar with three different meat choices, a vegetarian choice, and 5 different salsas for their guests to choose from. Everyone really liked the idea.
Outdoor signs led their guests to the train station for the festivities.
It was a beautiful summer day and they had tents outside with lanterns and bandanas as centerpieces.
Hope you guys like it!!
