I've been planning my son's 4th birthday party this week and was reminiscing of past parties. These are photos from James' 2nd birthday. What a difference 2 years makes! I miss my baby boy with chubby cheeks and long blonde hair. But 4 is a good age, too. I'm just not going to let him get any older than that!
We had a train theme for his party that inspired this invitation. He even had monogrammed "James" conductor hat from his grandma (unfortunately I don't have any photos of him wearing it!). The cupcakes were displayed on a white wire stand from Williams-Sonoma.
I made his train cake using this railway cake pan (recipe included) also from Williams-Sonoma. The individual cakes were decorated with orange piping, green candies and paper flags.
The guests played "pin-the-train-on-the-track" and had a scavenger hunt in the yard. There was also a train piñata and the kids made candy trains to take home. Sadly, I don't have photos of the favor bags, but they included wooden train whistles and number "2" cookies. Now back to planning his 4th birthday! Details to come next week...
