Plane themed birthday parties are a great opportunity to have some fun with the invitation design. Barbara created adorable ticket-style, boarding pass invitations, inviting guests to join the celebration via Cohn Airlines (Cohn is the last name of the guest of honorsuch a cute detail). What a fabulous way to set the mood for what was surely an incredible celebration!
Fasten your seatbelts because we are ready to explore all of the ingenious DIY decoration details Barbara tackled while styling this party. Notice the sky inspired backdrop? Barbara created it by hanging a mix of blue balloons and clustering white balloons to look like clouds. Balloons add instant festivity to a party space, are inexpensive and can be creatively displayedlike Barbara didto add a custom look. Next up, I love the Victor banner hanging from the light fixture. It almost seems to be floating in the sky. Personalized décor always adds a lot. Stacks of vintage suitcases helped reinforce the travel theme.
An amazing dessert and party favor table was set up front and center. Red and white striped runners add a finished look to a display of sweet treats (made by Zuly), colorful potted plants and impressive party favors.
Platters, red and blue platforms and cake stands were laden with so many enticing desserts! An impressive cake with plane décor and paper cloud bunting stands tall as the centerpiece.
Popular in Brazil, brigadeiros were served in mini treat cups, topped with cute airplanes and themed printables. Barbara served these in lieu of cupcakes which are not a traditional birthday dessert in Brazil.
Granola bars are a popular airline treat, but theyve never looked as colorful as these bars in their custom wrappers, offered from a white pail.
Darling paper suitcases, made by Barbara, also held appealing sweets. Round plastic candy boxes were dressed up with paper propellers and filled with candy. Tubes of meringues were embellished with mini cloudssuch a cute touch.
In-flight beverages included red punch in cloud embellished cups and water. The water bottles were ready for take-off, outfitted in custom wrappers, propellers and wings made from red cardstock. I love the ingenuityI think these are the cutest water bottles Ive ever seen!
Clouds, machine stitched by Barbara, contained confetti clouds of confetti, filled with joy and good wisheswhat an awesome way to celebrate a first birthday! What a delightful take on a plane themed birthday party!
