waite's 2nd birthday

Waite's birthday party was a train theme. He is so in love with Thomas the train, but I did not want it to be a Thomas theme, just trains, think old train depots. However, I did want to include Thomas on the invitation in some manner so I made the invitation read that Thomas, Percy, Henry and James (Waite's favorites) were inviting everyone to the party.  The Maitewaite Station is one of the train stations in a few of the Thomas TV shows. They have a party there and decorate with flag pennant banners and balloons. So of course I wanted to duplicate that.  It is amazing what a black visqueen, streamers and balloons can do to change your garage into party paradise.  We did a sundae train for dessert.  Of course there were matching party circles for everything.  And the party favor bags personalized for each child.
