Ready for Takeoff!

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest, Behind The Scenes

We have a super busy day getting ready for parties and I don’t have time to do a long post, but I thought I would share some pictures of the party I did for my very own ‘lil boy’s birthday yesterday. I worked with Melangerie for the paperie details. My son has an infatuation with planes right now so we did a “ready for takeoff” party. I need to “take off” now to take care of other parties, but I hope you all enjoy the pics below! Be back Monday!

PS – yes, that airplane suspended in the air is a cake!

    This is great! There are no airplane paper goods out there but you brought the theme together. My son wants a airplane birthday this year.
    Where can I order the cake from? Where can I get the paper for the table runway?
    Thanks, Christine

  • jessica

    me encanto los de talles de aviones… ahora me hubiese gustado ver mas, sobre la de coracion de los globos, la torta o canastas, pero realmente que buena creatividad.

  • jessica

    yo estoy realizando tambien su cumpleaños a mi hijo que cumple 2 añitos y el motivo es de aviones, me gustaria si pudiera dar me unos consejos tal ves.

  • Hannah Scoot

    I love your ideas! We had an airplane party for my son. I would have loved to add that runway idea on the tablecover. We only had four kids at our party so I got each bot their own personalized melamine plate (doubles as a favor). It was so much fun and the kids loved the plates as a special take home gift. Here is a link to where I got the plates. http://www.partyallready.com/premium-parties/boy-theme-parties/high-end-airplane-party.html
