A #Thomas the Train themed 2nd #birthday party

Despite the incoming typhoon Ruby that was predicted to make a landfall that weekend, we decided to push through with Riley's 2nd birthday celebration. And as a right of passage for every two-year-old in the world, we had a Thomas the train themed party!

I was able to purchase the Thomas the train banner and plastic table runner at Toy Kingdom. The Thomas the train party hat was bought at our neighborhood party supply shop. Sadly, I did not take proper pictures that day as I was so overwhelmed by the preparations! And most of the decoration and balloons where blown away by the strong winds by the time the guests arrived. 

All aboard the birthday express!

Most of the food was home cooked and we used disposable plates and utensils to lessen the clean-up afterwards (sorry Mother Earth!). The cute customized Thomas the train cake was made by my sister-in-law (thanks dear!). It was a small party that consists of close family and friends. We wanted to have an intimate gathering so we can have the time to actually chat and catch-up with our guests. Luckily, the weather cooperated and aside from the strong winds, it was perfect. 

After painstakingly sticking the papers on the wall, it was no match for typhoon Ruby.

Riley enjoyed meeting and playing with his young guests. After the party, he was asking if he could invite them to the house so they can play again (once a year only babe).
