Vintage Train Birthday Party

train-birthday-party-ideasAll aboard this adorable Vintage Train Birthday Party complete with a colorful train ride for all! What little boy doesn’t LOVE trains?! Well, this lucky guy definitely had the party of his dreams thanks to some talented vendors who put together the best train party ever!

Candace is the owner of Mingle Events & Vintage Rentals and this is what she had to say about Cruz’s 3rd Birthday Party: All Aboard for a fun ride on the Cruz Express! What better way to celebrate a precious 3-year-old who loves trains than with a birthday party full of just that! Mingle Events designed a vintage inspired travel themed party complete with vintage luggage, a rotating globe and a vintage motorized train set. Guests of all ages enjoyed fueling up on “Choo, Choo Chicken,” Smokestack Sandwiches” and “Freight Car Fruit Skewers.” After the wee ones munched they all dove into the dessert “station” which included brownies, creatively named “coal,” and railroad crossing cupcakes that were too cute to eat. At the “steam engine workshop” the kiddos painted and decorated their own wooden trains to take home and enjoy, but the biggest surprise came when a life-size train pulled up! All the guests hopped on the colorful train for a ride on the Cruz Express, but not without their conductor hats, of course. Upon their departure, the party-goers took home a wooden train whistle from “baggage claim” with a note from Cruz, “Thank Choo for coming.” What a magical day for a special birthday boy!
