Party Recap

My husband became a pilot about a year before our son was born, so we knew that if we were to ever have a little boy, that everything we could make, would have an airplane theme. Nursery, 1st birthday, and the list goes on. :) I am obsessed with entertaining and throwing parties, so for my sons birthday, I wanted to make it very special for him. We had tons of sweets, games and fishing for the kiddos, all while the parents could relax with a glass of wine if they wanted to. I had all of the guests write a personal message to my son, and put it in a time capsule for him to read on his 20th birthday. He had a blast ripping in to the cake, and needless to say we were up all night! :)

Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    We couldn't decide if we should have cake, cupcakes, or cake pops... so we had them all!

  • Party Favors

    We filled gabel boxes with items suited for each child and their age range. Babies recieved sippy cups/bath toys/snack bowls/and hair bows. Older kids recieved beach balls/tattoos/small toys/and sunglasses. Big kids recived baseball cards/make up kits/and bags of candy.

  • Activities / Games

    The family winery provided swing sets, and a fishing pond. We also had outdoor games to entertain the kiddos, and the parents were able to sip some wine if they wanted to!

  • What People Ate

    We had sooo many sweets! Cupcakes, cake, cake-pops, ice cream, rock candy, sixlets, cherry sours, airplanes made out of candy, rice krispy treats, and the list goes on!

  • What People Drank

    To stay with the color scheme, we had red and blue fruit punch, but also bottled water with a custom bottle wrapper with airplanes!

  • Best Moment

    The best part of the party was when my son began digging in to cake for the first time, and a stray dog ran up and started chowing down on the cake right in front of all of us!

  • Airplane 1st Birthday Party

    I started planning my sons first birthday party the day I found out I was pregnant. This birthday was a special year, so I wanted to make it extra special for my little boy. Airplanes were every where, in an aqua and red color scheme.
