Vintage Train Birthday Party

vintage-train-birthday-partyWhat little boy isn’t absolutely crazy about trains?!?! This little birthday boy spent Christmas absolutely mesmerized by a train that was moving on a track around the Christmas tree, and that is where inspiration hit! Of course, the perfect theme for this little guy was a Vintage Train Birthday Party! 

Vintage-Train-Birthday-VenueThe local train museum near where the family lives was the natural choice for the party venue. What a perfect place to hold the party at!

Burlap, lace, and natural twine were also incorporated and the flowers that were displayed inside mason jars were the perfect touch to the party theme!

  1. I love this! Funny, I could also see it as a great baby shower party for a boy, for those who love trains. Breaking tradition 🙂

  2. Such a cute idea! My son is crazy for trains, and specifically requested ANOTHER train birthday party this year. It’s his third train themed party so I’m looking for some new ideas. 🙂

  3. Love the color scheme and perfect location for the vintage train party vibe. The photos nicely captured the details of the party and the food looked yummy too.
