Sky’s the limit with this Airplane Birthday Party!
Warning: Picture heavy post!
Yesterday, I shared with you the Clothespin Airplane party favor’s from Reed’s 3rd birthday party.
Today, I am going to share with you the rest of the party details! Once Reed mentioned the airplane birthday party, I decided on a red and aqua color scheme.
I enlisted my awesome sister to design the invitations and she came up with these adorable boarding passes!
I bought an 8×10 unfinished frame from Michaels, painted it and added some wood airplanes for the front door decoration. The cardboard backing for the picture party, I covered with chalkboard vinyl and wrote Happy Birthday. Bonus: extra toy for the kiddo!
My favorite part of the party is the food table. This airplane banner was made with my cutting machine. I download this cartoon-y airplane and some clouds. It took me all of ten minutes.
These topiaries were inspired by Project Party Perfect’s Airplane party. Instead of the little airplanes she used, I painted some unfinished airplanes from Joann Fabric and hot glued them in place. Reed helped me make these. He painstakingly applied every cotton ball after I applied the glue.
The printables were made by one of my best bloggy friends, Sarah from Becoming Martha. That girl has mad skillz! I sent her the .png file of the airplane from the invitation and she took it from there. Everything from the cupcake toppers to the tent cards and water bottle labels are her design. Thanks so much Sarah!
This was our Beverage Service at Reed Airlines!
Lastly, we had a Baggage Claim area where the guests could pick up their party favors. I made the Baggage Claim sign with my cutting machine also. I just loved the retro feel to it!
These cute red chevron bags and the striped straws can be purchased on Amazon.
And here’s my happy birthday boy! All smiles after tearing into that cupcake!
Happy birthday, buddy! I love you!
