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]

What a beautiful set up! I love the colors. Megan
Thanks so much! When I saw that orange was the pantone color of the year it seemed like a great base color for the party!
this is too cute! everything is so awesome! great job on everything!
thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much! It was a really fun party to design and throw!
Love the idea for the jeopardy game. Any chance I can get the questions/answers that you used? I’d love to do this for my friend’s baseball themed shower I’m throwing at the end of the month.
My sister was in charge of that game, I’ll ask her for a copy! It was super fun!
Any chance you can send me a copy of the jeopardy game q&a’s also? We’re having an airplane themed baby shower, too, and this sounds like so much fun! Thanks for posting and sharing. Such a cute shower.
Go to the printable page and click on the Jeopardy game pdf and the questions are there.
Beautiful and so creative! How did you make that grassy field? Tissue paper?
It was actually two fuzzy blankets from walmart!

Is there anything cutier than clouds on a stick? I love it!
Not much cuter! Thanks
All your ideas are so great Ashlee! I love the cloud cake pops too!
Thanks so much! The cake pops were a HUGE hit, they usually are!
Ash- amazing is not quite enough to describe this. what a beautifully put together party! I love it all. 🙂
Awww thanks! I’m in love with how it turned out myself!
This is so awesome. Love the colors and the uniqueness of it. The control tower cake and clouds are wonderful.
Thank you so much! I love designing and planning and creating parties!
Those invitations are too cute. You did an awesome job. I’m sure it was a blast. The cake pops look yummmyyy and what a fun but appropriate theme.
Thank you so so SO much! It was a wonderful party!
Looks like a fabulous party.
Thanks! I think it went really REALLY well!
Aw! Cloud cakes! Salted peanuts! Airline wing name tags! Swoooon…
Thanks! I enjoy planning as much as I enjoy putting it all together! I spent the last few months narrowing it down and designing it all. It was a BLAST!
I would love a copy of the game also
I’m asking my sister for a copy and then i’ll email it!
For my husbands 30th I have got him a flying lesson so shall be utilising some of these ideas thanks.
How totally fun!! For our anniversary a few years ago I wanted to sky dive, but it didn’t work out. Honestly I’d probably enjoy flying lessons more than my husband (he has height issues sometimes) but what an amazing birthday present! Let me know if you need anything from me!

Fantastic! Love all the details – you’ve been featured at this week’s Craftastic party. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday at Sew Can Do:)
Thanks so much for the feature!!! I loved creating this party for my sweet cousin! And it’s so fun when other people get to enjoy it too!
WOW!! I’m such a sucker for airplanes. Little Man’s bedroom is all airplanes. This is just plain incredible! Love every little detail Ashlee!
I’m so glad you liked it! It was such a fun shower to throw! Airplanes are so much FUN! If you lived closer I would have dropped of the cloud/plane mobile when I was finished!
What an adorable party! My favorite part is the airplane food!
Thank you! I love the airplane food too! When I was debating themes the idea of doing the airplane food is what tipped the scales for me!
Jessica @ Stay at Home-ista
This is crazy impressive! My son loves airplanes (in theory, in reality he is miserable when actually in the air!), so this would make a really cute birthday party for him.
Thank you!!! I loved creating it, and airplanes are SO much fun… of course I love flying in them though! hopefully as he gets bigger it gets easier!
I’d love a copy of the jeopardy game as well. We have tons of showers in our area, and that one has never been done!
I’ll see about getting a copy of it!
I’m interest in the boarding pass invitation, how I can get it.
I just got a working computer and I’m working up getting out printable’s so you can make your own.
I got the boarding pass invitations (and other printables) up if you ever need them
I would LOVE a copy of the game also, please!!!!
