Train Birthday Party Ideas

My youngest son, Chase, had his 3rd birthday last weekend.  Right now he's in love with choo choo trains. So of course, I threw him a train theme birthday party.  It was so much fun planning. 

I LOVE creating party printables! So I created an entire train party package and it's NOW available HERE in my SHOP.
First I invited family and friends with this custom "train ticket" invitation...
which can be found HERE in my shop.
As a table centerpiece, I filled a pot with foam and stuck lollipops into it.
 The Chase & Friends topper is my custom welcome door sign...
which is available HERE in my shop.
Here are some more of the party details:
Balloons... I Love them! and so do the little ones.  Photo courtesy of my niece, Tiahna.  Thanks, Tiahna, for all your help with the little details of the party & for so many of these great photos!!
Bubble Fun...
 and a train table... more on the this table coming soon!
 
The cake tasted better than it looked. ;)  (I've told you before that I am SO NOT a pro cake decorator - but my little guys LOVE their custom cakes, which  is why I make them.)   I made the track shaped like a C for Chase. It's made with Marshmallow Rice Krispy treats, then frosted and decorated. The train is made with a Rice Krispy bar too, then decorated with candy.
I made a sorbet punch (sprite, rainbow sorbet (or raspberry sorbet is yummy too)  & one  can of frozen lemonade) The kiddo's loved it and my boys have been asking me to make it again real soon.
My niece and I made candy trains as thank you favors... View the tutorial on these guys HERE.

In the printable party package you get party circle tags:
Which can be used so many different ways from cupcake toppers to thank you favor tags to stickers and more.
You also get water bottle labels...
and silverware wrappers...
and a printable party hat,  place-card/food labels & thank you cards.

Find the  train party pack here in my shop

Happy Party Planning!  Check back soon to see how I made the train table and to get the tutorial on the candy train party favors.

  9. You are so creative! I love it! Sadly my littlest guy has grown out of his choo choo phase and is now onto fighter jets! So I am throwing him a camo/jet/army party! Wish me luck. I am not as graphically inclined as you but I am attempting it for the first time.
    You inspired me :)
