Buy some large-sized cardboard boxes and dismantle them. Use them to cover your driveway and entryway. Now use black electrical tape to draw train tracks on them. This wonderful entry decoration is sure to make your guests feel as if they are entering the island of Sodor. To add more excitement, you can draw some road signs on circular cardboard cutouts and use them for directing your guests towards the party venue.
Balloon wreath on the entry door
A balloon wreath made of blue, white, and red latex balloons along with a welcome message is sure to make your guests jump out of excitement. Making this craft is very easy and inexpensive. To make this wreath, you will need a circular foam wreath, lots of balloons, ball head pins, a ribbon for hanging, and a welcome message printed on a cardstock. Pin up the balloons on the foam until it is completely covered. On the reverse side, tie up a ribbon for hanging and paste the cardstock having the welcome message. Bingo! Your balloon wreath is ready.
Party table decoration
Give a coordinated look to your party table by using the required Thomas & friends birthday supplies such as tableware, table cover, centerpiece, etc. Cover the table with a blue table cover and use black cardboard cutouts to make its wheels. For centerpiece, you can use your child’s Thomas the tank engine toy and attach a couple of solid latex and a Mylar balloon to it. The party food, especially the cakes and cupcakes will also help you in jazzing up your party table.
Ceiling and wall decoration
- Use blue, white, and red streamers to decorate the wall behind your party table. Paste one end of the streamers on the top portion of the wall, carefully twist the rest portion lengthwise, and paste the other end of the streamer near the floor. Use this technique to cover the whole wall.
