My son's biggest passion right now is trains.Trains of all types, sizes, and of course, all of the sounds that come along with them! I was inspired to do a Little Engine That Could theme because I really wanted the party to be personal - while incorporating his love of trains. Lately I've been noticing him say "I can't", A LOT so I hoped this could also be an educational opportunity too get him saying "I can" and understanding he could do many things. Leading up to the party we read the book regularly + afterwards - I transitioned most of the party decor into his room to continue to remind him that he could.

I would say Im eclectic, modern, vintage, whimsical and classic.
When going DIY my best advice is to repurpose as much as possible. Also diy doesnt always mean making something it could mean taking away to create a certain effect. I did this by taking regular crayons + removing the traditional wrapper for instance to create a more upscale, hip + understated look OR by using plain frames to decorate.

always start with your guest in mind and everything else will easily fall into place :)

I absolutely love designing upscale, whimsically modern events for children - and designing transitional party-to-room decor.
