New York City Subway Birthday Party Theme!

December 2, 2013


What a weekend! Four day weekends are the best, aren’t they? We hosted on Thursday for Thanksgiving, celebrated Santi’s 3rd birthday quietly on Friday, had his party on Saturday and played catch up, set up the Christmas tree, cleaned, played with new birthday gifts…all day on Sunday! Everything was perfect!  No reading for me this weekend though. Just a lot of  quality time with my family and creating sweet, sweet memories. I hope you enjoy today’s post!







Remember when I was thinking about this months ago?!?  A couple of things inspired Santi’s 3rd birthday party theme: My boys were all born in different locations and lucky Santi was born in the amazing New York City. I’ll never forget the view I had of the East River from NYU Hospital when I went into surgery! Also, my boys love their trains and they have this collection. I thought it would be nice to combine the two. It was still unique but a small touch since we had the party outside of our home and couldn’t go crazy with the decorations.

The t-shirts represent their ages but we also have great stories about riding these lines. As you know, books always make the cut as favors and fit perfect in these awesome party bags. The fantastic cake and MetroCard cookies were done by my favorite bakery, Splurge.

Santi had super sweet new friends come to his birthday party and even his first bff who drove all the way from Baltimore to attend (we can already see these two as teenagers)! Thank you to Carson and Donna for also coming through with the camera and photographing the whole thing! We love you guys!

P.s. Diego really wanted the “6” train t-shirt but he turns 7 in 2 months! You know what would have happened to that shirt! jajaja! Another party to plan! Maybe I’ll go for a Japanese theme!  Any ideas?  😉

    This is so cute! Specially planning a birthday party based on where they were born. You should do that for each… that will be a great story.
