I am very excited to share my son’s first birthday party with you today! The most difficult task was wrapping my head around the idea that it was for my son who was turning ONE already…where does the time go??? We decided to go with the transportation theme of “Trains, Planes, and Automobiles.” The colors featured were bright and bold (royal blue, red, yellow, aqua, green, and yellow).
I had several embellishments that coordinated with the theme.
Location 1 Featured the gablebox “goodie bags” for the kids and a huge tabletop gumball machine. Each goodie bag was customized for the kids’ ages, including items such as car-themed bubbles, railroad-crossing bubblegum tape, books, rubber ducks atop trains, planes, and autos, and car stickers.
Location 2 It included “Baby Bites” that were served in themed cardstock in a cone display. Treats for the babies included yogurt bites, organic fruit purees, cheerios, and peanut, butter, and jelly.
Location 3 Sweet Treat Dessert Table. Featuring themed desserts and some other goodies, such as strawberry mascarpone shortcake, Oreo cheesecake cupcakes, traffic light brownies, and much more. Candies included: color-coordinating jelly beans, gummies, and race car candy kabobs.
– Water bottle wrappers coordinating with the theme and colors
– Small train, plane, and automobile toys placed on tables as accents
– Balloon bouquets with the dessert, food, and favor table
– A mini blow-up swimming pool filled with play balls (turned out to be the hit of the day with the little ones)
