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!

    Where can I order the cake from? Where can I get the paper for the table runway?
    Thanks, Christine

  52. Hi!!! I’m looking to do an airplane baby shower for my sister in law and i absolutely loooooove your decorations!!! i’ve never been on a blog before, so i hope you do get this. if you do, can you please tell me how to get that runway runner??? where did you get the water label, airplane cookies, etc??? help please! THANK YOU :)

  53. 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.

  54. 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.

  55. 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

  56. i was wondering where can i get a the runway runner?

  57. hey amy! that looks amazing! you are very creative. im planning a party/dance that has an arplane theme. and i was wondering how you made those cute airplanes on top of the cupcakes?
