So, in my last few posts I've been bragging about my cute little men and that my youngest son just celebrated his second birthday. (We almost had to cancel the party because I got sick, but I was able to rest up the next day while my sweet husband made all the food and tidied up the house.)
And we all survived and had a great time-luckily I was the only one to get sick and it was short-lived...
So, I wanted to show you a few photos of his birthday bash with some homemade decorations I made for his "choo-choo train" themed party.
Believe it or not, I am not good at decorating cakes (I tried to make a baseball hat cake for my older son's birthday last year and it turned out looking like an igloo...)
So to simplify, I decided to hand draw some trains for cupcake toppers. A friend of mine owns a frame shop and she gave me some mat board circles that were perfect for this. I hot glued dowels I had cut in half to the backs and pushed them into the cupcakes.
I completed my little display by circling the cupcakes with a wooden train set.
I also hung this cheerful happy birthday sign.
(A few posts ago, I explained how I made this cute reusable felt birthday pennant.)

Thanks for tuning in today! I've been working hard this week on some knock-off decor projects that are just about done. Can't wait to share with all of you!
