Brooke is obsessed with choo choo trains lately and I thought that her 2nd birthday should reflect what she's most interested in at the moment. So naturally, I scoured the Internet for some fun things to incorporate for her party and I found some really great ideas out there!

I didn't have a huge celebration for her again this year. Just a few of her close friends and family. I figured next year I could do something a little more fun for her when she actually understands what's going on. I'm hoping I can figure out something just as cool as this years party.

I've posted photos from the big day and links to where I bought some of the decorations.

Happy birthday baby girl. ♥

I found the disposable champagne glasses here.

As you might have been able to guess, I scoured the Christmas decorations for a choo choo train cookie cutter, and used that to make these train-shaped PB&J sandwiches.  These are the ones that I used. 

The wine box was a freebie score - it was an empty box that I came across at Costco.  They weren't supposed to give this one away, but I talked them into it anyway.  I suppose you could buy the wine as well and have something to serve for the parents...

    1. Hi Mwanda,
      Unfortunately I don't have it. I used a template that was in Microsoft Word and played with it a bit to make it look like a ticket. I wish I had saved the file! So sorry! ;(
