Had your fill of princess parties and superhero soirées? This charming, cheerful first birthday party uses bright colors and customized, inexpensive invitations and printables to help a paper airplane theme take flight.
Clever wording and simple graphics on the invitation, designed by Paper And Pigtails, are the starting point for this party theme.
The hostess, Amy of Buggie and Jelly Bean, packed loot bags decorated with luggage tags inside a paper suitcase, which helped to organize the table. Other suitcases, perched on upside-down empty flower pots, hold pilot loot bag essentials like plastic aviator sunglasses and airline wing pins.
Small food marker signs play up the paper airplane motif with snacks named to fit the overall party theme.
Check out the Paper and Pigtails Etsy shop for more creative party themes and coordinating printables.
