My son's passion for trains made this an easy choice on his 3rd birthday party theme! I chose turquoise, orange and brown as colors to give it more of a vintage feel. I designed the train ticket invitations & banner myself (which are available in my Etsy shop!) as well as the food train.
Cake, Cupcakes, Cake Pops & Sixlets
Party favors were set up in orange sacks tied with turquoise ribbon and presented on top of vintage luggage with sign "Baggage Claim". Favors included Hershey Bars, Mini Trains & Suckers.
