Choo Choo...I'm 2

Yesterday was Joshua's 2nd Birthday. The theme for the party was Trains (due to his absolute obsession with them at the moment). I started planning the party about a month ago & have just been doing a little bit at a time since then. Everyone had a good time at the party & loved the food & decorations. Josh also had a great time. He was much more aware & interested in the presents this year. The favourite being the John Deer ride on tractor from his Farmor, Farfar & Family Sivertsen, followed very closely by anyone that contributed to his woodern train set collection.

For those interested in the details of the party here they are:
(I got most of my ideas from On My Side of The Room)

Invitation: A train ticket

Decorations: Railway signs made out of cardboard, Danish & Australian flags (these are just a danish tradition no matter what the theme)

Food: Coal Cluster - Chocolate crackles
               Stationhouse Sandwiches - Egg sandwiches & Ham & cheese
               Carriage Cookies - Iced cookies in the shape of train
Food Train: This was 4 "carriages" made out of cardboard boxes cover with patterned paper & lined with foil. There was a "coal carriage" filled with raisins, a "log carriage" filled with pretzel sticks, a "produce carriage" with vege sticks & a "hopper carriage" which had dip in it.
Diesel fuel: Apple juice. This was served in some cool dispensers with a tap on the bottom.
               Water Tower: Water

               There was also tea & coffee for the adults.

Cake: A 2 carriage train from The Australian Woman's Weekly Cake Book
