Chugga Chugga Choo Choo - Train Party On Its Way!

My customers inspire me.

I said it before and I will say it again: I LOVE custom orders. I love working from scratch and going from zero to hero! .

When Kasey contacted me last weekend and she asked if I had some ideas for a train birthday party I must admit I was a little lost. I could not believe that in a whole year handcrafting so many parties for little kids I have never had the chance to design a train themed birthday party. Come on! Choo choos are so cute! My son is in love with Thomas...and if that love grows bigger within the next ten months...then you'll know what the 3rd birthday party theme will be!

So, back to what I was saying... {I got a little sidetracked there daydreaming on my son's 3rd birthday} Kasey sent me this picture of the birthday T-Shirt she got for her son...

She wanted to keep the theme within the colors light blue, navy and red. I did my research within Etsy too, and found the cutest clip art at ViveraDesign.

I have to say, I love buying within my Etsy fellows. It's such a wonderful marketplace. Vera from Vivera Design is located in Jakarta, Indonesia - yes, the other side of the world - Oh! the wonders of the internet! I received my files within 24 hours and I was able to send Kasey a digital proof of the train party invitation. 

And here is the final product:

I can't take credit for the wording since it was all my customers' input and so was the idea of making the invitation look like a train ticket. I do,  however take credit of the entire design and layout. How do you like it choo choo train lovers? I am 'all aboard' this train!

I am having a blast designing from scratch...I am not only making my customers happy but I am supporting other artists' businesses purchasing their original designs.

I will make sure to give you an update on this theme, since I will be designing some other train party decorations.

This train party invitation and other decorations will be soon available for sale at my Etsy shop. If you happen to stop by and don't see anything listed, just shoot me an email at poshpaperpartiesco at gmail dot com {just change the at for an @ and the dot for an actual dot (.) } .

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend !
