A Modern Train Themed Boys Birthday Party
Its a fact that boys love trains! This train themed boys birthday party by Sherry Turley, of Sweet Festivity, put a fun, modern twist on the theme for her sons second birthday. Sherry incorporated vivid colors, like teal and lime green, and mixed polka-dots with chevron. While taking inspiration from her sons favorite blue locomotive, Sherry chose to keep her printable designs free of characters. Fun train themed elements were incorporated throughout her styling with clever food choices, a fueling station for quenching thirst and a baggage claim area for party favors. Sherry even shares an economical backdrop decoration idea made from an easy party supply that youre sure to love!

Dessert table backdrops dont have to be complicated or break the bank. Using blue paper plates, Sherry created an entire backdrop for her tank engine inspired treats! Bouquets of polka-dotted lime balloons and two printable birthday banners made a fresh and festive display. I love Sherrys font choice!
Adding energy with an aqua and white chevron runner, Sherrys dessert table included cleverly named snacks and treats. Some of my favorites included lumber pretzels and chocolate coal malt balls. Pretty cupcakes were served in lime and aqua polka-dotted wrappers, topped with sweet printable toppers from Sherrys design collection. I love how the cupcakes were displayed on wrapped boxes for heightsuch a great, uncomplicated display idea!
Cakes just dont get any cuter than the train inspired version by All Things Cake. Part of me expects a fondant train to come chugging through that tunnel at any moment! Chocolate candy bars rounded out the dessert table, and made an easy grab and go offering for any guests who needed a quick sugar fix!
The beverage area was designated as the fueling station. How perfect is that? Sherry served engine fuel water and blue Hawaiian punch with super-cute train labels. Each bottle of engine fuel had a coordinating chevron straw from Sweets & Treats Boutique or The Swiss Miss Closet.
A darling dining table was set in the predominantly aqua and lime color palette. It included perky lime polka-dotted party plates, from Birthday Express, layered on aqua plates and paired with custom napkin-wrapped utensils. I love the railroad crossing centerpieceanother idea that packs a lot of theme-coordinating punch. Notice Gordon nearby, also a fun addition to the centerpiece.
Sherry included a copy of the Railways books (precursor to the Thomas trains) that guests could sign and leave a little note for her son. What an awesome keepsake!
A baggage claim area was easily accessible on the dessert table as a tank you favor for guests. Adorable polka-dot gable boxes from Polka Dot Market were on hand for guests to fill up with take home treats.
For birthday boys who love trains and moms who love quirky fun, this bright and modern train party hits just the right balance for a joyful celebration!
