Thomas & Friends

Approximately 3 years ago, my oldest son was one of Thomas’s biggest fans, so this theme was the obvious choice for his party.  A bunch of 2-year olds really just need a space big enough to run around in while the parents eat and drink. We booked the back room of a local pub and did our best to turn it into Tidmouth Sheds.

Cardboard boxes and plastic tableclothes became Thomas, Percy, Edward and James that the kids could play in.


This was the birthday cake. I didn’t have much time so I did a simple round cake with a chocolate filling and simple-ish decorations.

My personal favorite – the Thomas candy lollipops! I bought the Thomas candy molds and melted the Wilton chocolates to make the lollipops.  A Thomas Halloween bucket attached to foam rectangles wrapped in tissue paper became the train to hold the favors.

I never anticipated starting a blog to share my party ideas, so I don’t have many detailed pictures from these earlier parties. I will see if there are any more I can dig up from this one!
