Airplane themed Baby Shower


Over seven years ago (almost eight) my husband and I met on an airplane. A Delta flight coming back from Aruba. He was sitting next to my Nana and the two of them struck up a conversation. Somehow my mom and I got sucked into their discussions and the rest is history. Thank God for aviation! :)
While I was making this cake I got to thinking how fun an airplane themed anniversary party would be! :) One of these days...
Here are a few ideas floating around out there that I thought were cute and wanted to share!


First up, (top left corner) the inspiration for this cake...the design found here. You can get cupcake toppers, favor tags, invitations etc.
Then, check out this party where most of the middle pics were taken from. Incredibly creative party!!! I love the biscoff cookies as party favors, the lunches packaged in the to go boxes like what you'd get on your flight...and below those the "baggage claim" where she turned cereal boxes into luggage for party favors!!!! So creative!

And below that, the propeller marshmallow treats! Easy and so clever. Tutorial found here.
Bottom left, lots of white tissue paper pom poms floating from the sky would make great decor to represent clouds. :)
Right above that, boarding passes to hand out while greeting guests. Found here.
And a great activity/craft for a airplane party if kids are to be included would be to make your own airplane out of CHEAP materials like a toilet paper roll!!! Tutorial found here.
