{Real Parties} Thomas the Train


If you follow along with me here on this blog, you obviously know that I have a love for all parties. But as a mother of two boys, I especially love to see unique twists on boy themes since there is not a lot out there. This Thomas the Train party is a perfect example!

Kelly from The Party Dress teamed up with Melissa from Project Nursery to create a special 3rd birthday party for Melissa's son, Austin. WH Hostess, Kelly's stationary business, created a custom logo for the event. The red and aqua logo set the tone and color palette for the party.
I love the cake stand filled with shredded paper! What a simple, but eye appealing idea.


One of my favorite elements of the party are the centerpieces! It's hard to come up with kid friendly centerpieces and the blumeboxes filled with shredded paper and topped with custom centerpiece sticks is perfect.


The use of 3 foot balloons gave the party a modern feel.


Was I not right?! Isn't this such a cute, but stylish party!!

A few party details you might be interested in...

* WH Hostess created so many of the paper goodies at this party! The invitations, custom logo, cupcake and cake toppers, centerpiece sticks, candy jar labels, bubble stickers and favor bag toppers were all designed by Kelly.
* The aqua centerpiece boxes were purchased from Blumebox which I have used before as well.
* Two Sugar Babies created the monogrammed fondant toppers for the cookies and cupcakes and a 3D train to top the cake.

Be sure to visit Project Nursery on Monday morning to see party footage!

This party is so amazing, I love the colors! We’ve rented the same trackless train for my son’s 1st birthday party (carnival theme) in May and after seeing it here I’m getting really excited!
