Evan's Express

Party Recap

Choo choo! All aboard the Evan express! Warm velvety hot cocoa topped with fluffy marshmallows for all passengers who believe. I styled a polar express themed party for my son Evan’s fourth birthday party. I wanted to combine his love for trains with the magic and spirit that Christmas brings. Yes, I know, crazy right. Christmas in September. Why not? Confetti Couture Events designed a pin striped romper for Evan to sport. The quality of Megan’s work is jaw dropping. The fabric was beautiful, heavy weight which is perfect for any little boy and the addition of buttons and bow tie made it absolutely perfect.

Great stitch provided the Pj’s. Personalized with a hand drawn train from Sunny By Design. Brenda was kind enough to add Evan’s name and age as well as find pin striped pants to coordinate with the party. When you host a polar express party it wouldn’t be right without the pjs.

I kept the table simple. Hot cocoa topped with marshmallows, delicious cocoa mug marshmallow pops and grahams from Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins. A festive cake custom made by Dolce Vista Cakes. Hot cocoa and snowflake candy kabobs from Sweets Indeed were being eyed from the very second they were placed on the table. Homemade graham crackers, vanilla bean marshmallows topped with milk chocolate to make the best s’mores ever!

Sunny of Sunny by Design custom designed the party printables. From the vintage train ticket invitation, pin striped birthday banner, cocoa cup wraps to the tags and labels on the cocoa favors every detail was perfect. Sunny if you don’t know is an amazingly talented artist. I am in aww of her artistic abilities. She is my go to gal for everything unique. Seriously, how cute is that railroad crossing sign!?

The glittered snowflakes from Tutus and Bow Ties added an extra special touch to the table. Pretty My Party has the best selection of paper favor bags which I used for the train cookies designed by my very own mother of Cookie Couture. Pretty awesome, huh? The best part, they taste just as good as they look! The wooden utensils and paper straws were also a provided by Pretty My Party. They matched with every element of the party decor.

Thank you to all the vendors and especially Katie Moffitt photography for capturing my cutie pie on his special day.
