My boy can’t get enough of anything on wheels right now and especially trains! We decided to go small for his birthday this year and just have a little party with family since he won’t remember any of this anyways and last year we had a big party with friends and family 🙂
I really had to fight the crafter in me that wanted to have a theme party. So I decided to let the time be the judge and to try and work stress free till that. So up to about an hour before family came over I set up everything. There was lots of hurrying and stress within that hour but it was sooooo worth it. Thanks to pinterest ideas I knew what i was aiming for and only gave it one shot to work and if not it wouldn’t be since the goal was small and stress free haha
I bought a whole bunch of fruit the day before and hubby and I rushed in the hour to create this Fruit Train after looking up “Fruit Train” on Pinterest. Mind this was our first time trying to create shapes from fruit. I also added veggie trays to my food train in the back of the fruit as I found in the same website mentioned before.
I also knew I had some fabrics I haven’t used in forever that were the right colors for a train and very quickly cut out squares and little windows in them and with no other than tape hanged them on the edge of the table for extra decoration.
I am super happy with how it turned out since – A. it didn’t fall apart and B. it looked like a train! haha It was the center piece in our party and got lots of WOW’s from our 8 guests haha The crafter in me was happy 🙂
It was exciting to see him open his handmade gift, recognize and play with it 🙂 Mama’s heart is full!
What do you think? What did you do when you wanted to have a small party but still decorated?
