Cooper Turns 3: Vintage Trains Birthday Party!






Our little boy loves trains more than peanut butter loves jelly!  So it was only fitting that we celebrate with a vintage trains birthday party!

 A little duct tape, foam board and vinyl silhouetting by my awesome mom-in-law made the perfect entrance to our boy's party!
 This wreath was so fun to make with left over scraps of bandana, burlap and fabric.  And, it's for sale if anyone local wants it now that the party is over!
 The one thing Cooper asked for when I asked him what he wanted at his party was a "big yocamotive" that he could stick his head in for pictures!  So I painted one on foam board and daddy propped it up for us...
And then little one decided he didn't really want to take his picture in it...so we had to beg for this one!

Here are more party decorations!


The perfect thing about this party is we just used his toys to decorate!






This fabric sway took about 2-3 bandanas and probably less than 1/2 a yard of fabric.  And it was so easy.  I'm a little in love with these swags these days!

Party favors...baggage claim!


Just a bandana and a train whistle from Oriental Trading and some twine to tie it all together!





Yes, we had quesadillas.  That was the only other thing this kid requested.   And his heart was so happy to have quesadillas!
The food crates are from JoAnn Fabrics.



All of these printables from the party, plus custom invitations and thank you notes can be found HERE.

Thanks to my sister-in-law for the gorgeous cookies!  Order yours HERE!

Thanks again to Shelby Lynn's for an amazing cake....if only it were a white background and not teal. Yeah, I actually had them write, "no teal!" on the ticket.  But it's okay, they offered to redo or give me a free replacement cake on my account....so free cake is in our future!  Hard to be too mad when it still turned out super cute!

Along with water, we had "diesel fuel" aka unsweet tea to drink.  Love how perfect this train turned out for holding sweetener!  Gotta credit my momma for this idea!


"All Aboard!!"





He was in awe of his "monowail." <3



Love this hat haired boy!!
