I had a friend of mine find out she was going to have a boy after having two girls! With her husband being an air traffic controller and their nursery being decorated in vintage airplanes, I thought an airplane-themed baby shower was fitting!!
My first idea was to fill round white balloons and hang airplanes from them. I found cheap airplane gliders and I then spray painted them baby blue and sage to match my theme. After a hole punch and some cute baker’s twine style yarn, they were ready to fly!
You’re flight is now boarding…
I’m not a huge fan of games but this was a fun one! I made a custom crossword puzzle with lesser known facts that I secretly got from the mommy to- be’s family. This helped us all to get to know the future parents better.
What’s a flight without a beverage cart!! I asked to borrow this from our church for the day and it worked perfectly! However this cart is self-serve, no stewardesses here!
The guest of honor is from North Carolina and after a little research, I found out that so is Cheerwine (a cherry flavored soda)!! If you’ve never had it, try it! It’s so good!!
The vintage plane hanging over the food was a surprise gift from the Mommy to- be’s, family. It was fun to be in cahoots with them!
Airplane food never was so good! Here are our boxed lunches, complete with your choice of sandwich and a bag of chips.
A little-packaged pasta salad.
Another discovery from the Mom’s family was a special recipe for cookies they always have at parties…
…as well as cake squares with heavenly blue clouds on top. I found a few vintage suitcases on Craigslist to decorate with also.
Thank you to one of my dearest friends, Annie, for taking these great pictures!! It’s always hard to be the host and to remember to snap pics of everything!
Here is a close up of the goody bags before they were filled. A little luggage tag with the parents’ initial. These tiny suitcases were eventually full of chocolate covered peanuts from See’s Candies. I hope everyone enjoyed their complimentary snack.
All good flights must come to an end! Make sure you don’t leave these bags unattended. 🙂
This is where we like to party!
