Thomas the Train Birthday Party


Last week, my son Emmett turned two! He absolutely loves trains and specifically loves reading Thomas the train books, so it was easy to decide on a Thomas themed birthday party this year. About a month before his birthday I started pinning ideas on pinterest and this is how my version turned out.


I had seen a few pins on creating a train with party food. So I used some blue paper food trays from hobby lobby and hot-glued black construction paper circles to create wheels on the carts. I used the Thomas toy my son already had to be the start of the train.

My husband made these “Coal” treats using cocoa krispies, crushed oreos, marshmallow, and a little bit of black food coloring. They were very chocolatey!


Representing “Lumber” were pretzles dipped in chocolate almond bark!

I was very proud of this idea…We were trying to come up with an element to represent the “Steam” of a steam engine and I thought of Steam floats. Lemon-Lime Soda and Vanilla Ice Cream made a white creamy frothy beverage! These blue and white paper straws really added a fun touch!


These balloons are from Amazon. We took them to our local grocery store to get filled with helium.


And the centerpiece was the cake of course! I made a two tiered Cookies and Cream Cake using a delicious recipie from Preppy Kitchen.  I covered it in homemade marshmallow fondant decorations and used small toy trains on top. I love how it came out!


I used blue and red streamers to create a fun backdrop. Scotch tape held them in place very nicely.


This is the birthday banner I created with felt for Emmet’s first birthday and I hope to reuse it every year!


My mom got the cutest Thomas shirt from the GAP.


Look at that face! the birthday party was TRAIN-TASTIC! 🙂

Please feel free to pin and share!
