When it came the time to pick a theme for the party I knew right away what I wanted to do for her. We have a train that goes through the town we live in and you can hear the horn from our house. Miss E LOVES it and has quickly become obsessed with choo-choo trains. I think we watched Polar Express 1,000 times this holiday season and we even took her on a real train ride to ‘the north pole’. So it only made sense to give her a very girly Pink Train Party.
Pink Train Party
We had the party at an activity center this year so I wasn’t able to go all out with the theme like her 1st birthday, but here are some of the little touches I put together.
Most of the inspiration for the party came from this train party from Stacey Hawley Photography. I love what she did!
DIY Train Ticket Party Invitations
I created the invites with my Silhouette Cameo. I downloaded a ticket shape and then created the graphics myself.
I also created the little cupcakes toppers using my Silhouette Cameo. I’ve seen ones you can purchase on Etsy if you don’t have the ability to create them yourself.
I kept the party favors simple and put together little bags filled with pink and white candy and filled a little wooden crate I picked up at Michaels.
You can view the tutorial for the Canvas sign here.
And of course Miss E needed a little Birthday Girl Shirt! It wasn’t train themed but it was pink :) (Tutorial here)
So there are just a few of the little things I put together for her party this year.
