Party like you're 2!

We spent this entire weekend playing trains!

Since the moment he woke up Saturday & found his surprise bike & train table, this weekend has been filled with trains, balloons, friends, cupcakes, & awesomeness.  I'm so glad I decided to not skip a party this year... our living room fills up fast so we were hoping to be able to go to the park but the rain kept us indoors & we had to narrow our guest list down quite a bit. 

The bright side of that though is that a small space gets decorated much quicker & a few big items make a huge difference!  Add to that, the fact that my house is already filled with train stuff & you have a party that came together in a little over a week instead of the months of work I put into the first one.


A good friend tagged me in a photo of something similiar done with cupcakes & I had to ditch the Safeway cake & give it a try... I love that the #2 worked out & that I finally got some use out of the Thomas mini train that I ordered by mistake @ Christmas!!

I found the big mural @ Party City for less than $10 & it made a HUGE impact!  It also came with a few smaller ones that I used on windows & a fairly good sized "Happy Birthday" that I used by the train table... score!

I still have it up & trying to think of a way to remove it carefully enough so I can use it again - so fun!

Another cute idea I found was the "chugga chugga" for drinks & "choo choo" for utensils/ napkins... I don't know who comes up with this stuff but I can get into real trouble if I spend too much time on Pinterest - there are so many creative people in this world & I just love all the little details - my head gets filled with them when these things start to come together!

We put our whiteboard & Thomas magnets to good use & did a little spin on "pin the tail" with "get on track"

& I was able to use the amazing blue boxes that come from The Honest Company again to make a little bean bag toss game... I forgot to get a pic of the other 2 sides but there is a freight car on all sides so multiple people could play it @ once.  I didn't really take into account how crowded my living room would be & the lack of play space but the boys still enjoyed it :)

& then the party started & I was too busy playing to capture anything more than a few phone pics - thankfully, my other amazing friend Kimberlee sent me this last one of my little man right after blowing out his candles!

Thanks to everyone who came over to celebrate the 2 years that we've been blessed by this little boy!

Happy Birthday Zack!
