Airplane Themed Birthday Party

A friend whose son was turning two wanted to have a vintage airplane theme birthday due to his love of airplanes. We wanted to make as much of it out of diy projects that we had discovered or created on our own.

For the tables we made airplanes out of clothespins and popsicle sticks that were painted. On the end of them we attached little flags that read "Teigan Airlines. Flight 2". Naree's husband had airplanes that he made when he was a child which were incorporated as well.

The dessert table consisted of cake push pops, cupcake building station, and airplane shaped cookies. The cupcake station allowed guests to decorate their cupcakes which ever way they wanted. We had holes drilled in top of the mason jar lids for the sprinkles, making it easier and mess free.  The cupcakes were also topped with airplane shaped cutouts made from old maps that the birthday boy's Mom purchased from Perfect Package. The airplane cookies were decorated in colors similar from the printables designed by Bee and Daisy.  The cookies were especially a big hit for the birthday boy.

The printable pinwheels were hung on a tree and created a nice touch when swaying in the summer breeze.  We also decided to do was create a menu at the beginning of the food table.

The entrance into the house was adorned with a string of clouds and had the clothespin and popsicle stick airplanes hanging off of them. In the end we created a memorable and personal second birthday for the birthday boy.

We wanted to extend a special thank you to Amanda for her use of these lovely photos.
