Train Themed Birthday Party

Long time no see! So sorry for the lack of posts but I was working on a party and party week is always crazy no matter the size of it. It's all over, so I will get back to business this week. I have a few things that I want to share and first up is the Train themed birthday party from this past weekend. It was a small gathering for a 5 year old cutie named JC. He loves Thomas the Train and so a Thomas the Train-esque party is what he got. The mama wanted to keep things very simple and within a reasonable budget. I was able to find things to decorate with from the Dollar Tree and even The Salvation Army. Mama was in charge of the desserts and favor goods. I think it all came out quite nice. Most importantly the customer was happy! :)

It was an even MORE special day because daddy and son have the same birthday. Daddy got to blow a candle on his sprinkled doughnut!
Happy birthday boy makes for a happy party decorator!

is that a ball filled pinata ? or some sort of balloon ?if it is an alternative to a pinata , could be a great idea to have big bouncing balls instead of scattered small items , but how to fill it ?

Cute party!
Gotta love the Dollar Tree :)
Those train pops are too adorable!

Thank you ladies!
@BFPV- anytime! :)
@Theresa- The pinata still holds candy. It's just a smaller area, because of the extended outer part that holds balls.

What a great party! I love the use of the wicker for the cupcakes. We just had my son's 4th birthday party this past Sunday and his was train themed as well. Fun, fun, fun!
