Celebrate your child’s first year of sky-high adventures with an airplane-themed birthday party. This adorable airplane-themed party was designed by Jessica, of Fantabulosity, to celebrate her son Graham’s first birthday. Awash in bright red and baby boy blue stripes and polka dots, this celebration has a busy little plane zooming across precious party printables to use on a cute cake. This once-in-a-lifetime occasion is filled with special touches, from a beautiful, theme-colored dessert buffet to super sweet decorations. Prepare for takeoff, and prepare to be inspired by some wonderful party ideas.

Guests receive authentic-looking “boarding pass” invitations, for a “first-class ticket to fun.” Jessica designed this fantastic dessert buffet table with printables by Vens Paperie. We love the framed “food court” print. A cute little red airplane zooms across a simple backdrop, complemented by a fabric tablecloth and beautiful balloons.

Menu cards label each dessert. The gorgeous centerpiece cake is surrounded by adorable cake pops. Jessica used beribboned cake stands of varying heights for the cake and cupcake displays to add interest and give guests easier access to the party treats. She also thoughtfully portioned out theme-colored candies in cupcake liners for guest convenience. We’ve seen desserts served with sprinkles, candy, and even confetti, but never seen rock candy sticks displayed in a decanter of sugar like this. What a fun, creative party idea.

Jessica loved making the candy airplane favors she found on Pinterest, and they were the hit of the party. Partygoers also enjoyed ice cream from pretty paper cups, which Jessica punched holes in to attach wooden spoons, so even the littlest guests wouldn’t drop their utensils. Guests chose from red or blue Hawaiian Punch (what an effortless theme-colored drink option) or water customized with printable labels.

While little ones enjoyed some play time, grown-up guests were invited to leave a note in Graham’s time capsule, which Jessica opted for in lieu of a traditional guestbook. She and her husband will store them in a mini suitcase, for Graham to open on his 20th birthday. What a thoughtful idea.

Before departing, partygoers visited the “baggage claim” area to pick up their party favors; fun, polka dot gable boxes, with tags labeled for each guest, filled with small, age-appropriate toys. With coordinating party décor and special touches, Jessica put together a precious party to celebrate Graham’s first year.
