I love a great themed invitation! Designed by Carli of Dimple Prints, these All Aboard ticket-style invitations, return address labels and deliver to labels are seriously cute! What little boy wouldnt love receiving this invitation? A fabulous invitation not only sets the stage for the event, but helps simplify the planning process by identifying the theme and color palette. Abbey designed an exciting, colorful party around the invitation and coordinating printables.
One of my favorite details from this party is the creative twisted crepe paper backdrop for the dessert table! While time-consuming, its a budget-friendly detail that packs a lot of punch! Its a great alternative to a bigger, bulkier backdrop stand or display, especially if space is a factor.
Look how great the variety of train-themed desserts look in front of the backdrop, all displayed on a colorful red-gingham runner. Id chugga, chugga on over just for a taste of one of those adorable train-themed cake pops by Autumn Lynns Chocolate Sins. Abbey rounded up a delicious looking display of desserts, from cupcakes topped with matching train toppers (Your Cupcake Story), to colorful suckers displayed in mini suitcases to train shaped cookies and red gingham chocolate covered Oreos. Custom wrapped candy bars were another great addition to the tabletop treats.
Abbey did a terrific job utilizing her table space by covering boxes with wrapping paper, embellishing them with printable labels and ribbon and using them to add different display levels for more treats. An engineers hat and railroad crossing sign added to the dessert table décor. There was even a small spot for some vintage train whistle favors.
To create a cohesive look for the dessert space, a printable banner and hanging paper fan decorations added some fun festive touches.
A separate area was set up to hold plates and utensils. Instead of a plain table covering, Abbey created a railroad track tabletop, complete with railroad crossing signs. This is another budget friendly idea and could be replicated using many different materials: duct tape, ribbon, cardstock or even fabric scraps. The party hostess decided on a fun taco bar with three different meat choices, a vegetarian choice and five different salsa options for her guests to choose from. Printable food labels matching the theme were used so guests could easily identify their choices.
