As I said in a previous post, I love it when readers share with me how they took a theme I posted, made it their own and went above and beyond even!
Jennifer of Nounces Design threw an airplane party for her son recently and the details just have to be shared! Some great stuff here!
First off, her invitations. She is a graphic designer and created some amazing invitations. She went the same route I did with the boarding pass and also the map envelopes. Click on the photo to see it larger.
These invitations are absolutely adorable! MUCH better than mine!
And guess what? She sells them! So all of you folks that aren't crafty with a computer can still have amazing invites. Buy them at her etsy store here.
Now on to the things we love... details! Make sure to click on the image so you can get an up close view.
In Jennifer's words:
"For the goodies bags, I painted a Cheerios box brown, I then cut two pieces of brown paper into the shape of a suitcase and attached one to either side. To dress it up a bit, I used two stripes of yellow cardstock and travel stickers. I think they turned out pretty good. The adults were also sent home with a goodie bag, chocolate chip cookies….YUM!"
Don't you love the goody bags????
Moving onto the food. She served individual lunches in keeping with the airplane theme. She continued the logo throughout, which really is the key to creating a cohesive event and bringing the theme to life. Look at the lunch up close. The banner that the airplane is pulling says what the lunch is "ham, turkey.. etc." Very creative!
Now for the cake!
"I went back and forth about the cake. I didn’t know if I wanted to go with cake or cupcakes. I couldn’t decide…so I went with both! Dan and I made the cake topper airplane out of Crayola Model Magic. Derek loved seeing the airplane on everything. He would get so excited every time he saw it. For the cupcakes, I added flags. Some with the airplane graphic and the others with his age, 2."
How cute is the airplane on that cake? and I love the clouds!
Another fabulous airplane party!
