Steamin' right along

Back in April we had the pleasure of attending, and working on, the lovely wedding of Claire & Eddie in Savannah, GA. It was a peachy keen affair and so unique to the couple. Check out their wedding, featured today on Grey Likes Weddings.

Their ceremony was in a picture-perfect, charming country chapel surrounded by spanish moss, while the reception was in a bona-fide train museum (a perfect setting given the groom is an engineer). For this special couple we developed a train themed guestbook to match the setting. This carefully crafted drawing is complete with a steam engine, hopper, passenger car (with their pets in the windows), and caboose.

Each of the guests left their fingerprints (or thumbprints) above in smoky shades of grey and blue to look like the puffs of steam coming from the engine. Now it hangs proudly in their home as a memory of that special day.

We were so happy with how it turned out that weve decided to offer the unique designs for a variety of your most special, train loving events.

My nephew, who turns 3 this month, is obsessed with thomas the train (and anything train related) and will have a smaller version of the personalized fingerprint steam engine at his super fun birthday party.

This product is the perfect special touch to a birthday party for your favorite train loving toddler. We can personalize markings on the side of the train to commemorate the special celebration. The train shown below has the year but you could also add something like "____ turns 3" or "Conductor ______" in addition to whatever text you like below.

Shown here with fingerprints in stormy-sky blue, weathered wood blue and frayed burlap brown. Pumice stone grey and antique paper tan would also be great (shown on the wedding train above). For the wedding train, we added the love birds to the top of the caboose, for a sweet added touch (not shown above)

Available at our etsy shop today!
