Levi's Aeroplane Party
Our little boy has turned 2! Wow! I can't believe I have been parenting for two years (so much to learn!) In our house, we aren't planning on doing big parties every year, and since we did just family for his 1st birthday, it was number 2 that got the big celebration!
We planned a morning party for some little friends, and then a family thing in the evening which worked well.
I started with this invitation. Working with those yummy colours, as well as aeroplane inspired packaging (I love all the 'mini' things you get on a plane at meal times!), this is what we came up with!
I think my favourite thing turned out to be this last minute idea of these cartons I made which we used for scavenger hunt loot, and to help offload all those lollies to our little guests! I'll be doing a detailed post about these in coming days.
Also, I'll show you how I made those cute chocolate 'fly' clouds, super easy, and could be adjusted for many a themed event.
I'd love to hear what your favourite element is!
I want to thank a few people who helped with this party :: The lovely Chris from Celebrations at home, for the inspiration board :: Vesna from My Little Jedi for the emergency delivery of divine twine :: Amy Moss from Eat Drink Chic for the milk carton inspiration :: and my lovely friend Liz who was my night-before sounding board, crafting and cupcake icing whizz!
