Airplane Themed Birthday Party

My little kiddo #2 recently turned two.  How does that happen so quickly?  I have such vivid memories of his birth like it was yesterday.  (It might be because I woke up from sleeping with intense contractions at 6am and he was born at 930am.  Uhm… a three and a half hour insanity birth story.)  

Anyhooo, I’ve decided until my kiddos hit the “5’s” (5, 10 and 15) we are just doing fun but simple family parties.  On the 5’s we will celebrate with friends and do a big ole’ party of it.  I still like to do a mini theme and decorating a bit.  Birthdays are such fun and such an excellent way to really celebrate your individual child.  I love making them feel special.  Last year, I had a fish themed party for him and this year I went with an Airplane themed birthday party!

The only item I bought for this airplane theme setup was from *Target’s Spritz line, the red and white striped paper pennants.  One side was striped and one side was solid red.
I used plain white paper and wrote out the number 2 and the word two with a black sharpie and then outlined it in gold.

Then using simple jute string, I hung the letters and numbers with mini gold sparkle clothes pins.  I used gold paper clips then to hang the remaining striped pennants.

I pulled out a few blue striped and polka dot scrapbook papers and made eight different paper airplanes.  I made a few of them with white paper and added… you guessed it, gold stripes!

My clipboards have been sitting empty since I removed my last graphics and had my fun Newspaper Chalkboard hanging up.  So, it was nice to add some color back to the wall with kiddo #2’s party decor!

I forgot to mention I used white plain paper and cut out simple clouds.

The entire setup took maybe an hour total.  And come morning time, it was so worth his happy face!  I love simple and easy projects that bring such joy to your kids.  What fun birthday theme’s have you done?
