All Aboard: Alphabet Train Themed Boys 1st Birthday
Hop on board the party express for this alphabet train themed boys 1st birthday. Julie Smigelsky of Tabletop Treats created such a sweet ABC train party to celebrate an important milestone 1st birthday for one adorable little boy. Using soft blues & greys, Julie kept the decorations, party favors, cupcakes, cake & treats on track by coordinating them with the alphabet train theme. Her use of custom train printables designed by A Party Studio effectively tied all of the charming choo choo details together.
The highlight of the dessert table was a darling silver train engine chugging its way across the table, pulling 3 decorative train cars filled to the brim with alphabet letters and colorful desserts by Annie’s Creations. Scrumptious cupcakes were made even more appealing with custom train cupcake toppers. The muted engineer stripe detailing on both the printables & the fabric is such a fun, understated touch! Isnt that smash cake in the last car, cleverly spelling out the birthday boys name, perfect for this theme? I love how Julie used the alphabet filled smoke clouds to make her backdrop pop!
Well-thought out desserts are always a clever way to tie in any boys birthday party theme. The wow factor was definitely achieved through the delicious details of the ABC cake blocks and school house letter T sugar cookies, served on the bottom tier of the table.
And what do little mouths munch on while waiting for cake to be served? Boxes of cinnamon letter cookies of course! Adding different levels to a dessert table like Julie did is a great way to add height and interest to your table without compromising on the variety of treats served or looking too cluttered. You can achieve this look by using boxes covered in wrapping paper or fabric and/or using serving dishes and jars in varying heights.
Dont forget to provide beverages to quench your guests thirst. These water bottles look so festive with custom beverage wrappers displayed in oversized ABC blocks.
Party guests always appreciate a thoughtful party favor. Alphabet block favor boxes adorned with custom train themed favor tags surely added a smile to every guests face and coordinated perfectly with the theme.
