Made ~ Thomas the Tank Engine Birthday Party

The day after Thanksgiving my little boy turned two. He is obsessed with all things Thomas the Tank Engine. So it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the party would have a Thomas theme.

I ordered the invitations from Etsy.  I love the fact that they look like train tickets.

The color scheme was mainly royal blue, red and white with a few touches of kelly green thrown in for good measure. I found this large Thomas the Tank Engine balloon at our local party store and it's still afloat nearly a month and a half later.

The menu consisted of Gordon's Goldfish, Branch Lines (pretzel sticks), Brendham Buffalo Chicken Dip, Suddery Spinach Dip, Coal Pops (Oreo pops), Mighty Mac's M&Ms and Tidmouth Tidbits (vegetable tray).  Sodor Water (bottled water) and Diesel Fuel (juice boxes) were the drinks.

The centerpiece of the food table had to be the Thomas the Tank Engine cake I got from Publix.  The cake was made in the shape of Thomas and included a two episode DVD.

I purchased brown craft bags from Michael's and adorned them with blue and red ribbons and a label I made.  The bags held a small wooden train, a train wooden puzzle, bubbles, crayons, small coloring sheets I found online and Tootsie Rolls.  The wooden train and puzzle came from Target's Dollar Spot.


  1. This is so great!!! I am having a Thomas party and was curious about the cards that you have with all of the names of the food. Is that a template that can be found online? or did you make it? Would love to use something like that.

  2. Everything looks great. I have the same question as Ladidi101, but mainly wanted to know how did do the label? Did you go somewhere to get a HQ print or did you use your own printer?
    The bags are the only thing I need and that label would be awesome! Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Great Job and love love the cake too.

  3. Thanks so much for your comments. Since I ordered a digital file for the invitations, I used Photoshop to extract the Thomas image, erase the text and then placed new text in its place. I printed them on a laser printer and cut them out.

  4. I love your Thomas the Train invite. I'm trying to find it on Etsy but can't find that design. Do you happen to have a link? Thanks!

  5. I too love your Thomas invites and the personalised creations. Can you advise where I can buy the digital file or can I buy a copy from you? Thanks. Kylie

  6. Good Job! Where did you find the font?
