Jonathan's 3rd Birthday Party {Construction Theme}

And just like that my little boy turned 3 YEARS OLD! Where did the time go? Honestly. Also, somehow it took me a month to post this and now I wonder how I had the time to do this every day!?

It was such a blast to plan a birthday party for my boy because he really enjoyed taking part in making the cake and setting everything up. He begged me to help with the cake and couldn't wait for everyone to show so he can 'play' with it. 
I didn't want to throw a huge family affair where he would be bored but invited more kids then adults. Also, I went with a simple brunch menu and cake for dessert. Everyone loved the cake and enjoyed the party! It was short but sweet and more then anything he can't stop talking about the cake and all the boys and girls that came over.

Blue & Red Train Themed Boy Birthday Party

The main table with snacks and decor. Can you spot a train? 

DIY bunting and favor bags by yours truly

Favors decorated with left over material from bunting...

Adults table with water and apples as centerpiece. Nothing else seemed grown up...
Personalized train napkins by Tiny Prints 

Hubby and I built the cardboard train for the party

The kids table complete with train tracks...

I just love this simple idea for kids table. And I didn't even find it on PINTEREST!

Kids snack station so they don't have to ask parents for juice and stuff

Lots of fruits in red and blue.

Popcorn train and rail road signs

Another look...

And another.... 

The kids loved the train. Our wall however will never be the same

Never looks into the camera

Singing happy birthday...

And then dropping his birthday cupcake... Haha

He didn't seem to mind 

 Popcorn train turned into cupcake train for dessert. Can you spot the fallen over cupcake? ;-)

Obviously, I loved taking pictures of that table.

The train before it was (a little bit) destroyed 

The adorable magnet favors

 Jonathan turned two last week and celebrated with family, friends and a train. His favorite thing right now is all things trains and choo-choo is the word we hear a lot in our house. He loves when we go by the train station and I can't wait for summer to enjoy long walks and see his excited face when he sees a train in person. I made train cars out of honey-graham crackers and marshmallows, as well as little signs out of waffles and cherries. I ordered pistachio cupcakes with blue sprinkles (Sugar Babes gourmet Cupcakes) and made the rest of the food myself. Oh, and the train was a labor of love for sure! Lots of work but he definitely enjoyed it!
