Lately, big J is so into Thomas the Tank Engine. His favorite night time book is now Thomas and Friends book instead of Good Night Moon. And of course, his dad is unsurprisingly been buying and collecting trains including a big Thomas Train Table. I really thought that it was ridiculously expensive but I have to admit that they are also very well made and come with a lifetime guarantee.
Since the big Small Fry’s turning 2 next month, we decided to have Thomas the Tank Engine as the theme for his birthday party. It’s going to be nowhere as big as his 1st birthday party so I didn’t plan it as far in advance, not to mention I was stuck in the hospital 12 weeks ago so we decided to just invite family and some close friends.
With a brand new baby, I really don’t have much energy to creatively pull together an all out personalized birthday bash. Nonetheless, I want it to be special. I want Jordan to feel special. After all, his baby brother has been getting most of the attention and much of mommy’s time so instead of buying the invites, I decided to just design and print them myself (which are now ready to be mailed out). I’m also going to bake his cupcakes again but I won’t be making edible fondant toppers.
I’m still looking for Jordan’s outfit, party favors, and a bunch of other party stuff so if you have any party ideas, please let me know! :)
