Airplanes Birthday Party: Best of the Web

Boys of all ages love their toys- including trucks, cars, planes, boats, etc. So naturally, it makes a great birthday party theme. There are so many things you can do to celebrate with planes, trains, and automobiles. Here are some ideas to might help you plan your next transportation party!
I love this take on an airplane party. Instead of the normal airplane birthday party theme with primary colors and infantile planes, check out this savvy mom's take...


A party INSIDE a REAL airplane? Dad dressed up like a pilot? A cake made of clouds and boarding pass invitations? It just doesn't get cuter than this for boys who love airplanes.


How adorable is this? Just a wonderful idea. And the theme is so versatile- she can do so many things with party favors, vintage stamps, passports. The Sky really is the limit- har har har (insert cheesy snort here).




Here's what Hostess Blog has to say about this adorable party.. go to her blog to find out more about this adorable party!

Chrystal Guyette did such an AMAZING job bringing this VINTAGE AIRPLANE theme to life for her son Gavin’s birthday – from the “boarding pass” invitations mailed out envelopes fashioned from old atlases, to clever “in-flight meal style” lunches and bags of blue cotton candy adorned with cloud shaped marshmallows!.





The party was actually held inside a historic KC-97 airplane that sits at their local airport (what a fun venue for the kids!), and guests participated in creative activities that were outlined in their “Junior Pilot Training Manuals“. Dad even dressed up as “The Captain” and stamped their manuals every time they completed a task!

I think I-a grownup (ahem!) would even love a party in an airplane.

Maybe I could dress up like a 1960's flight attendant.


Groovy!!
I am almost sure I could pull this off. Maybe not.

If renting out an airplane is not feasible for you,
(um....yeah...maybe not) 
then here are some other great ideas!

Today's Airplane Birthday Party was so adorable that we will extend the "Trucks" and "Cars" portion for next time! So stay tuned here... To be continued...

Thanks for the feature on my son's airplane party - it's been one of my most popular party posts since I featured it more than two years ago! It's obviously inspired many others to do the same :)

These airplane party favors are fabulous especially the invitation cards. The plane is serving as the best venue with theme. Planning my nephew’s birthday party at venues in NYC. He aims to be a pilot and will definitely love this theme. Have to make the day enjoyable.
