CHOO CHOO… birthday train coming through! Julianna Smigelsky of Tabletop Treats is our conductor for the day as we wind our way through this ADORABLE Alphabet Train First Birthday Party. She used a chic blue and silver color palette on everything from the printables and decor to the sweets and favors. I especially love the amazing train centerpiece on the dessert table that has a treat-filled boxcar for every letter. Cute AND clever! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Alphabet-filled puffs of steam atop a sleek silver train, transporting a slew of cupcakes
  • Adorable alphabet themed smash cake surrounded by alphabet sugar cookies
  • ‘Learning to Write’ cookies + themed water bottles with “ABC” Nutrition Facts
  • DIY alphabet block party favors + larger decorative blocks holding tent poles

PARTY DETAILS as told by Julianna

All aboard the alphabet train! This fun ABC themed party was created for an adorable and sweet little boy’s first birthday.

The dessert table was designed around creative and custom printables by A Party Studio. The silver train engine pulled three dessert filled carts and a fantastic smash cake by Annie’s Creations. A simple backdrop of train smoke clouds brightened up the light blue color scheme.

Annie’s Creations also added delicious detail with their ABC cake blocks and school house letter “T” sugar cookies. Boxes of cinnamon letter cookies made for quick snacking while the kids waited for cake time. Alphabet block favor boxes adorned with custom favor tags by A Party Studio were the perfect way to cap off a fun party for all. Birthday boy Tripp’s cupcake smile was the cutest detail of the day!

    I love this party theme. I was curious if you could tell me where you got both of the trains. The large silver one and the small wooden train that is pulling the alphabet. Thank you for your time.

    I really enjoyed designing the printables for this party! Everything came together beautifully. Good job Juli.

    Thanks so much all! This was a really fun party to style! Shannon, I found the both trains on Ebay and then spray painted the large one and hand painted the small alphabet one to fit the color scheme. Sometimes if you look long enough on ebay you can find some great props for parties! Tali, thank you so much for your amazing designs!!!
