Choo Choo Carson is TWO!

I have loved getting to work with Carson’s mama on his birthday parties! This year, we embraced his love of trains and went with a classic train party.

We decided on navy and green as the color palette and added a touch of vintage with old wooden boxes and burlap.

I absolutely LOVE the burlap table cloth we used for the food table. It was purchased HERE.

Having a birthday stats poster is a great way to remember your child’s favorites from the year. I love looking back at their favorite songs, books and toys. Stat posters can be purchased HERE.

Using the 3, 5 and 8 inch party circles are the easiest way to decorate and bring your theme together. We placed the different circles in galvanized tins and tin cans wrapped with coordinating scrapbook paper. So easy and SO cute! :)

James’ Hayride Party

As the weather cools down, I can’t help but get excited about outdoor birthday parties. Last year, James’ mama asked me to design a hayride invitation for his 5th birthday. I love the way it turned out and I really LOVE the idea of a hayride themed party. Who doesn’t LOVE a hayride??!!

She had the kids trick or treat with a few neighbors (who were expecting little ones at their front), had an apple bobbing station, cookie decorating station, and reminded guests to come in costume.

Party  circles are an easy way to decorate and carry out the theme. Hot glue the 3, 5 and 8 inch circles on lollipop sticks and stick in coordinating buckets filled with tissue shreds. Done… table decorated! :) I think it’s also a fun touch to add color coordinated candy around the cupcake and sprinkled throughout other party decor.

I have always been a huge fan of setting up a cookie decorating station. Kids love it and it’s an activity you can do year round… inside or out. Party stores have such a great variety of colors in sprinkles and candy… you can have fun with this one.

You can set up your party circles on cake stands to give you table a little height. Add candy surrounding the base for a touch of color.
