Aleph Bet Train Party

My son just turned three years old and we cut his hair for the first time! To celebrate his birthday and upsherin we threw him a birthday party featuring some of his favorite things: trains, the Aleph Bet, and the color green! He was so excited to see all the décor! I wanted the kosher dessert table to be very bright and have a storybook feel, so I set it up in three tiers and had a train full of candy going up a hill. The train was made of cardboard boxes covered in scrapbook paper that I got from Amazing Savings! The cute Aleph Bet characters waved from the train car windows.

At the kids table, each child got a bandanna (which served as a placemat), a train whistle, a conductor’s hat, and a suitcase lunchbox personalized with plastic suitcase tags. On the table were adorable hard cover train shaped books- each family received one (also from Amazing Savings).

Besides for the food set up at the buffet table, the kids got some yummy and fun food in their suitcase lunchboxes: sandwiches in the shape of a train (cut with a cookie cutter), cheese, tomatoes, and olives on Aleph Bet picks that I made, and an apple juice box drink wrapped with a personalized wrapper.

I made some fondant covered Aleph- Bet decorated cookies that I scattered around the train cars. The faces were drawn with edible markers. I made a fondant covered train cake with bunting that said happy birthday.

For fun candy trees, I skewered sour belts onto toothpicks and stuck them into Styrofoam balls. I added the flower lollipops for you know, a little more sugar ;)

The kids loaded their suitcases with candy!  They also painted wooden trains that we glued onto their lunchbox suitcases, and they decorated the boxes with foam letters and shapes.

I’ll soon be posting on my blog free printables that you can download and print for yourself, like the juice box wrappers, the luggage tags, the book nametags…

Hope you enjoyed these pictures and that you’re inspired for your own children’s birthday parties!
