These past couple of weeks ago we celebrated Jayden his second birthday bash. Going off his love for Thomas the Train, we decided to do a Rustic Railroad birthday party for our little man. Thankfully with the help of Shindigz, what would normally would be a stressful time for this mama, was one of the easiest and most creative, and not to mention fun party, we had for the little guy. We didn’t have to worry about scouring different party stores for all of our decor needs, instead we went online and ordered tons of personalized party decor for Jayden’s birthday from Shindigz and had it shipped directly to our home. Check out Jayden’s Rustic Railroad birthday below.

My dad and hubby teamed together to make these awesome log stands for his cake and dessert table. We loved the rustic feel of them and we will be using them for future birthdays for sure.

I love these pom pom and banners from Shindigz. There were so many color options to choose from, and they were really easy to hang on the wall and ceilings. We just used regular tape so we didn’t have to worry about damaging the walls.

These personalized cupcake toppers was icing on the cake. And speaking of cake how amazing was this Thomas the Train cake? My husband’s grandmother bought this at HEB for $20!

I am obsessed with these cookies by Sweets by Syd. She did Jayden’s first birthday, and all my blogger events too (see here and here). Let’s just say these cookies are addictive! I loved our personalized railroad theme name plates from Shindigz. They came in full size and dessert size plates perfect for the party.

These personalized bottle wrappers were great added detail for the party. And how amazing was this sign for Jayden’s birthday? We had a burger bar outside and it was the perfect backdrop.

Personalized drinking cups for our guest.

These personalized party favor boxes were the cutest giveaway for our guest and their kiddos!

For our patio we decorated with these fun lanterns.

In our front yard we had a personalized yard sign to direct the guest to the party. Jayden’s favorite part was hitting this Thomas the Train inspired piñata. He put his batting skills to use and loved every minute of it.

We couldn’t have asked for a better party for Jayden. Thanks Shindigz for making our Rustic Railroad birthday party a reality. We loved all the personalized details down to the water bottles. If you are looking for a one stop shop for all your for next party, make sure to check out Shindigz!
