Sometimes choosing a theme to go with a birthday party train rental can be tough on parents and grandparents. So now and again, we like to toss in an idea or two to help make the process easier for our valued customers. Such is the case this week. In honor of winter’s arrival, we’re sharing our thoughts on incorporating a snowflake theme into a child’s birthday party train experience. Just think of it as our version of an arctic express train ride! Here’s a little guidance on how to put it all together in time: Months before the party, make your birthday party train rental arrangements with us. Then get to work making companion items to go with the snowflake theme. Snowflake mosaic stepping stones are one of our favorite additions. They are very easy to create and may be used to lead the way towards our birthday party train’s entrances. Afterwards, the stones could be used in an outdoor garden or as rather large paperweights. Directions for making snowflake mosaic stepping stones may be found on Fave Crafts. They’ve also got instructions for creating DIY snowflake room decorations, table centerpiece, North Pole sign posts and cup cozies. Any one of them could be used to dress up a party room or outdoor venue. Once you’ve got the birthday party train rental and decorations locked into place, give some thought to the day’s menu. We’d suggest having the kids help you make snowflake sandwiches the morning of the party or the night before. There is a fantastic video on YouTube by Pottery Barn Kids that will show you how to make the sandwiches. They could be served with snowflake tortilla chips. There’s a recipe for those posted on Simple Savory and Satisfying. Then top it all off with a slice of three-tier snowflake cake that’s been decorated with a miniature locomotive and box cars.
