We had so much fun celebrating over Memorial Day weekend with family and friends who all made his special day perfect.
I knew I wanted to have a train party because he loves trains & I loved all of the sweet vintage charm that a train theme could bring.
We went with a red, white, & blue Americana color scheme since his birthday fell over Memorial Day weekend, which was perfect, because it was easy to find decor in those colors. I incorporated gingham, burlap, & bandanas on the tables & fresh flowers for added ambiance.
Sweet Sharon snapped some pictures of Atticus dressed in his conductor gear by the train station in Kirkwood a couple of weeks ago because I wanted to use those photos as decoration. She also took photos of all of the party fun! My lovely friend Amanda used her design skills to make an adorable invite & came over early to decorate. My dad & hubby helped decorate & put together the birthday boy's new train set, my mom was in charge of getting balloons & an emergency Coke that got rid of my migraine (she saved the day!), and Sharon used her craft skills to turn a little red wagon into a train & some empty boxes into a bigger train for the littlest guests to enjoy.
Since the train party left the station at 3:30, we offered light sweet snacks- some donut "coals" from Vincent Van Doughnut (local loves coming soon), Gus' Pretzels in the shape of 2s, blueberries & raspberries as a healthy option, & a banana & chocolate cake made from scratch by the chef at La Pâtisserie Chouquette.
All in all, it was a very fun day!
Atticus says thank "choo" to everyone who came & everyone who helped!
