My daughter is obsessed with trains. As in, she can sit and watch you-tube videos of stationary cameras watching trains go by for hours. Really. So, for her third birthday party, we rented out the train-themed party room at THIS PARK in Maryland not too far from our house in DC. It has a carousel and a little choo choo that winds through the forest. Now, we visit said park at least once a week, but not with 18 of her closest friends. I suppose I should spare you the downside, but to spread the woe, a recent storm damaged the tracks, so the train (a crucial element of our train party) was closed. Yep. Closed. But we still enjoyed the room and several carousel trips.
And I topped the cupcakes with these bite-size fondant train cars I drew with edible markers and arranged the cupcakes on this cupcake stand.
I love this picture from Danette of the birthday girl. From the window you can see the (nonfunctioning) choo choo track. There are actually lots more cute kids in the picture, but I cropped it to respect the privacy of said cute kids. That’s her cousin on Maeve’s right.
And I made this image for the evite.
