My youngest son is onto all things Thomas the Tank Engine. Since I'm not the biggest fan of character parties, I tried to lean more towards a 'vintage train' theme, although, how could I deny him SOME Thomas decor??
Train cake and cupcakes
Activities / Games
We played chugga-chugga, choo-choo (spin off on duck-duck, goose) and pass the hot coal (hot potato) and there was a Thomas the Train photo backdrop
The kids each went home with an engineers hat, bandana, a piece of coal stuffed with Thomas gummies and a train whistle
What People Ate
I opted to have a chili bar that I saw featured on Celebrations at Home blog (Chris Nease is brilliant). I served top it yourself chili, hot dogs, potato skins and individual bags of fritos that you open, fill and go!
What People Drank
Iced Tea, Lemonade, juice boxes and water...and of course there was wine and beer for the adults
