Get ready to take off on a high flying adventure in this helicopter themed boy’s 2nd birthday party

The sky was the limit for creative designer and mom, Tali Burress, of A Party Studio, as she prepped for her son, Asher’s, 2nd birthday party.

A helicopter themed birthday party wasn’t chosen out of the blue; Asher is crazy for helicopters, so this theme was perfect.

Not only did Tali create a variety of printable tags, labels and decoration ideas in an eye-catching turquoise and red color scheme, but she also planned for a coordinating birthday cake, cupcakes, a clever breakfast menu and party favors to help attendees’ spirits soar.
