Party Down :: Clever Take on Train Party.

Due to the Peach’s love of trains, I seriously thought about doing a train theme for her upcoming party.  It is one of the most popular party themes out there for good reason–it is adorable, charming and fun for kids.  And I’ve seen a lot of train parties.  And Thomas the Tank Engine.

But this one that Alix hipped me to from the blog Sweetsindeed.com just took train party idea to eleven.

What makes this train party so totally charming is the vintage nod to Lionel trains.   My Dad grew up on Lionel trains and they were a huge part of my childhood for every Christmas.

How much do I love orange and blue together here?

What a great use of the vintage trains, eh?

Boxcars full of great healthy snacks too? And the little straw bales? Adorable! Well played!

So, I’m trying to get stuff together for the Peach’s birthday.  So many little details to iron out. Ugh.  We’ll see…

BTW, how many how many children should be invited to a two year olds party? Am I courting disaster by having–gasp–five? Eek? Thoughts, please!

It’s the Vintage Kiddo Retro Round Up (a day late, but not a dollar short!)

Oh how I love a three day weekend!  And still they fly by so fast. I must admit that I spent quite a bit of chunk of crafting for a certain little one’s upcoming birthday party, but I did manage to pry myself away from my beloved sewing machine to find some sweet vintage goodness to share with you all!

This vintage floursack dress from the thirties might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.  From eBay seller, jdbok.

This is a wonderful rare find–vintage petticoats in baby blue and ballerina pink. I would have given my eyeteeth as a little girl for these beauties.

As you know it’s pretty hard to find good vintage boys clothing that isn’t worn out! So when I found this deadstock little plaid polyester friend, I had to share it with you all! From Ebay seller, q-at-the-door.

I pity the fool who doesn’t want to play this game!  Like I could NOT have made that joke. C’mon,  we are looking at a board game with Mr. T on the front of it! I mean, look at him–giving us front row seats to the GUN SHOW! From Ebay seller, 1madaersol.

You have the mid-century dollhouse, then you can add this great vintage  mid-century bedroom set with lamp! From Ebay seller, mikeocean.

Don’t ask me why, but I’m a tad obsessed with these sneaker patterned  romper.  Vintage Health Tex no less! But now that you’ve seen them, aren’t you too? From Etsy seller, Blue Bird Lucy’s.

California is getting hammered with rain right now, which is making me wish these great  vintage Kids Tuff Kiks duck rain boots would be a great for the Peach. From Etsy seller, Mary Alice Felt Like It.

This sweet vintage dress kills me, it is so darn cute!  One part Heidi. One part Laura Ingalls and 100 percent ADORABLE!  From Etsy seller, Hart & Sew.

These vintage Playskool nesting blocks are so charming–just look at the typography along! That N for Nightingale is simply gorgeous! From Etsy seller, Carmen and Ginger.

I remember doing  sewing cards and thinking I was one step closer to making my own clothes and these vintage ones are just too cute for words. From Etsy seller, Amiable Leaf.

Happy Tuesday!
