Last Train to Aidansville Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

All aboard the Aidan Express.  This featured submission came to us from Belinda from Styled By Belle, who created this party for her son’s 3rd birthday. Her son loves Thomas the Tank, so she knew she wanted to subtly incorporate the theme into the party without making it too commercial. To start, guests were greeted by the “Sir Topham Hatt”. Cargo crates were used as vessels and the confections were transported in a train built by Belinda. Isn’t that incredible?  The set in the background with the two windows representing “Tickets” and “Luggage” were hand drawn by Belinda. Sweet treats included caramel popcorn, train sugar cookies, cupcakes and wild berry yogurt push pops.  She employed the talents of her friend Kylie Bourban to create the train cake. Each carriage was a different flavor. To wash down the sweets, Belinda served raspberry cordial and iced water. Passengers were entertained by an “Aidan Express” motorized train. After de-boarding, the tots were given wooden train toys that they could paint themselves. Scroll down below to see the vendor credits.
