When we had William’s 2nd birthday party we went all out! It was a blast and the Thomas the train theme was perfect for this train obsessed little boy.
The party invitations were a hit.
I even made the food match the theme (or the table that held the food at least)
The kids loved the Thomas the train favors.
And my favorite part THE CAKE!

is for Birthday!
This year for my sons birthday the theme was trains! He loves trains and of course it also had to be Thomas the Train.
We choose to decorate the table, something simple but fun. This led to the idea of trains holding most of the food.
I got aluminum loaf pans from the dollar store. I cut out black construction paper Continue reading
I like to have a little thank you gift for the kids that come to our birthday parties. You can easily spend tons of money on these. Especially if there is a good number of kids, William’s party had 12 kids invited, plus our 3. Can you say crazy house full?
So I wanted a nice treat but didn’t want to spend a lot. I found the Thomas The Train cups at Party City and went from there.
I had a lot of fun making this Thomas the Train birthday cake. It might have been a lot of work but my son LOVES it. The big smile on his face is what makes the extra work worth while.
It’s that time of year again. I am planning my son’s birthday. This year is pretty fun as he actually has interests. It was a choice between trains or cars, he LOVES both of these greatly. We decided on trains since we expect his love of cars to be around for a VERY long time.
I started getting my ideas together on Pinterest as I find this is the best way to organize all the ideas I find. While looking for a printable invite I found mostly ones you had to order. Being as I like to spend as little money as possible that wasn’t going to work. I started wondering how hard could it be to make my own invite? With some searching I discovered it wasn’t as hard as I thought.
