Now for the full Airplane Baby Shower Reveal! It was SUCH a fun party to plan and throw, and so much fun for my sweet cousin to come into town so we could all love on her and be happy for her upcoming baby!
Again- we went with the Airplane shower because her Dad worked as an air traffic controller and her husband works for Delta, so lots and lots of flying are in this kid future! We designed the table to look like grass on either side of a runway… and I love how the table turned out! I wrapped a few of my puzzle boxes in green wrapping paper to add height without sticking out.
The control tower cake, AND the biggest hit were these cloud cake balls!!! (a 6 petal cookie cutter, press the cake inside, freeze, cut in half, add to a stick and dip!)
What kinds of food do you think of when you think Airplane? I created these labels for Pretzels…
and peanuts! This way people could snack at the party, or take some home as well!
I found these great clam-shell plastic food containers at Gygi’s here in SLC, but I’m sure a local food/restaurant supply store would have them, or of course ordering online! We made chicken salad sandwiches on croissants and I love the addition of my stickers too them. I’m still tickled how it all came together!
And of course my airplane color flow cookies…
And you can’t have any party, let along an airplane party without bottled water (get all the free printables for the airplane baby shower here)!!!
I also found these plastic cups, the same ones from the airplanes, for the Orange juice (my favorite airline drink, AND the perfect color for our party). BUT I couldn’t find the right size lids… NEXT time, right? And with Easter the next weekend I found an abundance of blue cotton candy, so I made these orange planes with a mold and added them to the bags!
I used my silhouette machine to cut out all the clouds and the planes, you can’t see it but I created a mobile that’s hanging from the chandelier to add more clouds and a plane into the sky above the table. The cartoon plane was an image I found that I changed up to match the other plane, the silhouette of a plane, that I designed…
Since so many people were coming from different parts of the Mother to be’s life we included name tags. On top of the wings is a cloud shape space for names… Another missed picture (I always have those don’t I?) and the gift table (with a maternity pictures from a photoshoot with my sister, Chelsea Peterson Photography)
The prizes for our games were simple, but delicious! The sad thing is the first time around I actually miss-spelled chocolate…
We threw a maternity Jeopardy game, that was a HUGE hit! Everyone was laughing pretty hard, and the team that won didn’t have any new or young mothers on it…
And the baby food game, the winner of this one was my 17 year old cousin, she babysits alot!!! Way to go!
And finally a reminder of the airplane invitations I created for the party! It was a wonderful evening and I hope my sweet cousin had a great time, cause in the end that’s the whole point of throwing a party!
