Chugga Chugga Choo Choo Colten turns 2!Category: Party Rentals, Social Engagements
Recently we celebrated my son’s train obsession at his 2nd Birthday! He loves his Choo Choo Trains, so what better way to celebrate his birthday then with a Vintage Choo Choo Train themed event.
Before the birthday celebration kicked off, Classy Chic Events took to their photography skills and shot pictures of Colten. We found a beautiful spot filled with train tracks. To say he was excited to be playing on the tracks would be an understatement. We brought along some of our very own prop rentals such as suitcases, lanterns, railroad signs, and custom chalkboards to set the stage for the photoshoot. Our Creative Designer, Jessica made the darling Chugga Chugga Two Two sign that acted as centerstage for many photos. In addition, our chalkboard artist Kelly created 2 amazing chalkboards for the shoot. I love the idea of creating a chalkboard with the monumental moments of Colten’s life for that year. It’s a tradition we started last year. Kelly did a fantastic job of displaying that. I also have to give kudos to my husband for helping me bring this all together as we were just thrilled with how his 2nd birthday photos came out.
Now onto the Chugga Chugga Choo Choo Birthday Celebration! We wanted to incorporate a more vintage feel to this event. Our colors included navy, dark red, creams, and brown. Our props included vintage trains, railroad tracks, lanterns, railroad signs, and more trains.
Some of the highlights included:
- Welcome Sign: “All Aboard the Colten Express”
- Train conductor hats and whistles for all the kids
- Backdrop train track photo display of our little train conductor
- Luggage Drop Off Station
- Chugga Chugga Choo Choo Vintage Train Dessert Display
- Custom themed banners, cupcake toppers, & choo choo train signs
- Custom made vintage train and railroad signs
- Party Rentals such as crates, suitcases, lanterns, trains, & frames
- Amazing desserts and cake by Sara’s Cake Shop
- Chalkboard display of Colten’s 2nd Birthday with all his milestones
- Cork board filled with our train conductor’s photos
- Table displays included linens with train tracks, lanterns, and trains
- Train bounce house for fun
This was such a fun event to plan for our little guy. Many hands went into making it extra special. Thank you Jessica, our Creative Designer with Classy Chic Events for all the darling paper designs. Kelly for the amazing chalkboard art, and my husband for all his hands on deck. Colten loves his trains, his family, and friends so you can only imagine the level of excitement on his big birthday with everyone. We are truly blessed!
