Party Inspiration

July 22, 2010 Sarah Coggins

Dylan and I celebrated his birthday with our playgroup friends on Tuesday. I knew early on that I wanted to do an airplane themed party for my little guy. While I’m still pulling together photos from his party for a post, I though I would share a bit of fun inspiration I found on Etsy:

What birthday boy (or girl) wouldn’t love a crown to wear on their special day?

Super cute party invite:

These would make fun party favors:

And how about this cool favor box idea:

This looks like a great idea for future parties when Dylan and his friends are older. I love coloring. 🙂

And I also love cupcakes which is what attracted me to these fun toppers:

When the party is over, the cake is eaten and the presents have been opened – there is one important thing left to do. The thank you notes. Love this idea for kids that are learning to write:
