From the beginning. . .I had JW Illustrations create some custom graphics for me. I knew I wanted to use airplanes and helicopters in the colors navy, kelly green and light blue. This is what she came up with:
I had her change the red to blue and green and I was all set to design!! I opted out of using the pilot graphics, but they are really cute!
The Save the Date, which went out in email form:
Table in the foyer with guest book
The conference room
The tables had green table cloths on them with placemats at each seat and a small arrangement of balloons in the center of the tables.
Dessert table details:
~Buckets of Jones sodas in coordinating colors
~Fabulous cookies and desserts made by the fam
~Decorated cupcake tower, cupcakes with my cupcake toppers
~Lots of green and blue accents
~Tissue paper pom poms hung from the ceiling
~Custom designed wall art
Stratton's "Smash" Cake
The Cupcake Tower, cupcakes and cake were decorated with toppers I made to match the party theme
Amazing cookies made by my Aunt Christina aka Cookies by Christina
Favors included; airplane suckers that I made, along with personalized hershey bars, blue sippy cups with animal crackers inside, individually wrapped cookies by Christina G., Andes mints, spearmint candy and personalized hershey miniatures. I got the galvanized metal tiered tray from Pottery Barn- I just love it! Above the favor table I hung a banner I designed with the same colors and patterns used throughout the party.
I wrapped a square of foam in matching polka dot paper I created and trimmed it with ribbon and topped it with some crinkled paper shreds and stuck my suckers in the foam so that they would stand up. Worked like a charm and looked pretty cute, too!
Gift Table with card container and name banner
Stratton's coordinating t-shirt
Overall, I was pleased with everything, but it was a lot of work!
