Birthday Party

{Mine} Nathaniel’s Polar Express Birthday Party

Last winter we put together such a fun theme for my little Polar Express loving son! I thought it would be fun to save the blog post for the new holiday season!

We kicked off the party with this adorable invitation I designed just for him.

It is also available in a landscape version and each style can include a photo as well!!

For Nathaniel’s invitation we printed double sided invitations with the party info on one side and his photo on the back

It was such a fun party filled with goodies, hot chocolate, kids in jammies and Christmas fun. DSC_5988

This is the dessert table where all the goodies and hot chocolate additions were. The kids had so much fun making their own hot chocolate and adding marshmallows, whipped cream and candy!

The poster behind the dessert table is available as part of the printable kit in my shop. It is pictured here printed at 20in X 30in and features Name and Age of the birthday boy! I had it printed on photo paper at Sams club for a very reasonable cost!DSC_5937The cake was a hugs hit as well! We iced it to look like a snow covered mountain! the trees were ice cream cones turned upside down and covered in green icing with a star tip. The adorable fondant cake topper came from the etsy shop Handsome Robs by Jenn

The golden ticket on the cake was a free download I found on pinterest and then I just added in the personalization with my computer program. This can be done easily in photo shop! You can find the link to the free download here.

The rest of the dessert table included some baked goods made by me as well as some color coordinated candies from nuts.com.  I love nuts.com because they have a large assortment of reasonably priced candies by color and the shipping is super fast! PLUS they always include a little surprise treat which thrills my kids each time!

We ended the party with some present opening by the tree and favors for all. Each child took home a bell from Santa’s sleigh wrapped up in an adorable red and white striped box just like the box in the movie.
