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![riview showtitle=always id=64 name=parties tags=airplane size=150x150 lightbox=0]

those name tags are great! they are perfect for an even our research foundation is throwing. where can i find them?? thanks so much!
I made them up myself, and cut them with the silhouette. I haven’t had a min to share them yet. when is your event?
I know its past your original event, but the printables, including the nametags are here
I love everything from this party and my friends and are are planning on throwing a similar one for a mamma-to-be. I know it’s been a while since you posted this – but was curious if you were still planning on distributing the printables? We’d LOVE to use some of them in our decor – they are so cute! No worries if not, but thought I’d check since I saw you had mentioned it in the post. Maybe you did and I just missed it too. 🙂
Thanks so much!
It’s on “the list” GAH! I am so far behind, I have a list of 125 posts that need to be written right now! It’s INSANE! When is your party? I’ll bump it up the list a bit!
Well the shower’s in Jan, so I was thinking about working on them this week or next. I don’t want to rush you at all, so I’ll just wing it! Thanks so much for being willing though!
are you wanting everything? or just the blank invitations?
Well, all of it, but I suppose I wouldn’t need the other printables for until after Christmas – but please, don’t rush anything for me – I just wanted to check. 🙂 Thanks so much!!
it’s not at the TOP of the list, but I did move it up quite a bit…
you probably don’t need them anymore, but I did put all the printables up
Would you post a copy of the Jeopardy game? I’ve been looking for game ideas that are less traditional and more adult. This looks perfect.
The whole party looks amazing, btw. Super cute, cohesive, and very well put together. It just looks FUN.
I’ll see about putting something together.
I’m throwing my sister an airplane baby shower next month and I LOVE the package of salted peanuts. Where did you find that if you don’t mind me asking?
I created all the printables myself. when I get my computer back (in the shop after a crazy wicked virus attack) I’ll get them added!
Hello! Is it possible that you have added the printables and I’ve missed them? I’m giving a shower this weekend and would love to use some of them. Also, where did you get the information for the jeopardy game? Like, questions and answers? I’ve looked online but am having a hard time finding a good set. Thank you!
i love the invitations and printables too! if you did post them somewhere or wouldn’t mind sharing, I would love to use them for my boy’s 3rd birthday at the end of the month.
I’ll work on getting them up, they turned out so cute, but I’ve been so busy I keep forgetting to get them up.
I know it’s too late for you son’s birthday but I put the printables up
I’m sorry, I still haven’t added them. there is always so much to do. I bummed it back up my to do list. I’m so sorry.
added the printables and the game
I know it’s too late for the party you threw your sister, but I did put the printables up if you ever do airplanes again
Would you mind sending me a copy of the Jeopardy game? (email@example.com) I’m throwing my friend an Airplane themed shower in a couple of weeks and this will be a perfect game to play!
I put up the printables if you wanted the airplane jeopardy game images
i was wondering if you have been able to put up the templates for the labels of everything. i love your theme. and my baby shower is in a couple of weeks and i was wanting to print out labels like yours
GAH! I have not. I’m not sure how to share them as they have not shape as a printable, it takes the silhouette software with the specialty shape I created to cut out the invitations, and the planes and clouds are custom made silhouette studio shapes… I was hoping Silhouette would carry the shapes for me but I haven’t been able to get them to agree.
It’s probably too late for your event, but just in case I put up printables
hi! i’m throwing an airplane-themed baby shower for one of my best friends and i love what you did here. i’m curious to know how you created the “grass”? thanks!
on the table? it’s two furry blankets I found at walmart!
Will you email what you have for this party? I am in love!! I didn’t find anything on your Facebook page (bit I did like it!!) Amanda.firstname.lastname@example.org
They are under the tab’s in facebook, which don’t show up on mobile devices. here is a mobile friendly link to the page
Hi, do you have a picture tutorial for the cake pops clouds? I love them!! Thank you!
I don’t! I’ll put it on the list to make a tutorial for them! thx for inquiring! I never know what food items people are going to get excited about!
