My son loves everything with wheels. So this year we had a Airplane party. Having a new baby at home has made it hard to be creative with the no sleep thing. So I looked up Pinterest to see what others have done with this theme. It was great and it really helped my mind.
My son’s favorite color is orange so we had include anything orange.
We had lots of snacks. Of course you have to have airplane basics like peanuts and pretzels.
We had cake, jello, cookies, and a couple different candies.
The mini chalk boards were from hobby lobby for a dollar.
The plane cookie cutter was from Hobby Lobby also for 1.99.
I went to Pebbles in my Pocket and saw this adorable take home gifts. We recreated them at home with paper we picked out there.
I found this great ideas at http://sweetbabymasonjames.blogspot.com/2013/02/paper-airplane-birthday-party.html
Even more important than looking good they have to taste good.
My sister had this great old suitcase that fit the theme perfectly!
The plane is made from the decorative paper bought at Pebbles in my Pocket.
This was my favorite party of the party! Pebbles in my pocket have kits that you can buy and you just put the planes together and it comes out this awesome garland. I custom picked the paper but they have pre-cut and picked prints. I love that store!
I know I didn’t have original ideas this time and I got a lot of help from pinterest and other stores but I just wanted to show you how these parties are possible. Some parties you see on pinterest or google look like a ton of work and impossible on a budget. I just want to show you that you can!(if you want)

Have you decorated for fall yet?! I love fall with all the colors and food! It’s such a good time of year for me. Both my sons were born this time and I was married in fall! So I super love fall. Here is a beautiful fall mantel. Check it out.
Pirate themed party have got to be one of my favorite themes. My sister threw a party for her son and the decor was pirate of the Caribbean!
It makes me wanna say “dead men tell no tails!”. I know I’m a super disney fan lol. Vintage candle sticks, creepy crow, bones, creepy cloth, and an old lighting piece with spider webs make a perfect dead pirate look.
Everyone should have a over sized chalk board! Endless possibilities. We have used it on al birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, and bridal showers.
Old suitcase for a cake stand? Yes! Old candle holder and a cool silver cake cover make for a perfect old look.
There was more to keep the pirate spirit alive. Messed up cloth and pirate flags to invite the kids into the pirate world was a great entrance.
This time instead of games they did a water slide toy and snow cone machine. Best idea ever! All the boys had a blast and it was low maintenance for the adults. Enjoy!!!
My sister in-law had a beautiful baby shower over the weekend and I just had to share her Pinterest inspired party! These are not my ideas but I just to share what they had done!
The table decor doubled as a gift! I love decor that is useful! In the center was a tall layered diaper cakes and on each side was an additional single layer diaper cake. Free diapers awesome!
Chips ahoy!!! For food they had mini turkey sandwiches, chips, a fruit sail ship, and a veggie tray. I honestly believe the better the food the better the party.
I thought this was so adorable. The napkins had lifesaver mints tied onto the set. It was super cute and after the food I needed a mint.
The drink was pink lemonade. The fish floats in the drink was a great touch(as long as they haven’t been used before lol) and cute straws.
The hostess had some home decor that matched the theme of the shower. She had some through out the house.
Dessert! My favorite. The cake bites were my sisters favorite. I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to try one. BUT I did eat the mini cheesecake bits. They were awesome. They were nilla wafers with cheesecake frosting and a cherry filling on top. They were the best little treats ever! So good.
Last but not least the party favors. They keep with the sail theme and inside they had salt water taffy.
This shower was so cute I had to share! Good job hostesses!!!
My sister strikes again! My niece loves Ghostbusters! So here it is! Of course you have to have slime! So she made green plastic slime to come down the walls.
Simple and great. She did that in the entrance, fireplace, and glass doors.
I loved the cake! I am all about finding ways to make the party run a little smoother. So she decided to buy a cake with slime!
To make it even better but printing out a ghost from the movie to put on top.
I wish I had pictures of the next game but I don’t. My sister found a slimmer costume at the local DI(goodwill) and had her oldest son dress up. All the guest at the party got silly string and they went out and hunted the ghost! They had an absolute blast!
The next game was make your own stay puffed marshmallow man.
The are built with marshmallows and toothpicks. After they were done building them, they could decorate them with color sugar markers. My sons favorite part was making his own slime! make your our slime
They got to take the slime home in the container with eyes.
The gift bags were adorable! They got to put there slime in and they had sucker ghosts. There also was candy and little toys. The cute containers were from zurchers. Just wrap and tie!
The very best part was my nieces face when she got her present!!! Best present ever!!!
Have a great day!!! Remember to like is on Facebook and follow on Instagram and Pinterest!
