Party Recap

All my son wanted for his birthday was a "Thomas" party as he is loves Thomas the tank engine. So I set out to achieve his birthday wish by making a lot of things myself. Some people called me crazy going to that much effort for a 3rd birthday. All I can say is that the look on my son's face when he saw the end result made it all worth it. Now is the age he can appreciate and enjoy it. Hope you like it as much as he did! If so check out some other things I hand make on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/ThePartyEmporium

    HI love the centerpiece. You mention you made the railway out of cardboard. Did you then paint it black? It looks like pretty thin cardboard. Where did you get it? Thanks! Tara
