Vintage Airplane Birthday Outfit and Party - First Birthday Inspiration
Posted on 31 July 2016
As a creator of first birthday outfits, I get a ton of customers constantly asking if I make invitations, banners, hats, decorations and pretty much everything you can think of, you may want to include in your special day. I decided I would start compiling all of the inspiration I come across when creating an outfit to make that theme outfit come alive. Many of the suspender designs you see, or number one patterns on my outfits are hand drawn by me in Adobe Illustrator, so they are unique and exclusive to my shop.
I know that like many of you mom's, I spend hours upon hours on Pinterest looking at everything from "easy mom hair do's" to "activities to keep toddlers busy". I go on there looking for one specific topic and get sucked into the Pinterest rabbit hole and before you know it, I realize the sun is coming up and I just missed a whole night's sleep. LOL
So, to help you mommas out when you ask me if I make this and that, or if I know where you can get a party hat, a custom invitation or what ideas I have to go with the outfit you are purchasing or if I have an idea for a theme in general, I will point you to my blog. The pictures and links to shops have been researched for hours upon hours and I have compiled the best ideas and inspiration I could find for you.
For my first post in this series I chose the Vintage Airplane Theme Party because it so cute and just screams little boy. Hope you enjoy and get some inspiration!
Here is the outfit which is perfect for the Vintage Airplane Theme. You can choose from a Red or Blue Bow and then a Brown, Blue or Red Number One. I love it paired with jeans or cute khaki/tan shorts for summer birthdays.

Printing an old vintage poster was a really unique idea and something that definitely gives that old vintage feel
I loved how she chose to incorporate the initial of his first name in the cookies. It is a subtle but not over the top personalization
The little cardboard box airplane is super cheap to make but is totally adorable as a photo prop for all the little birthday guests.
The aviator caps for the little photo prop are a classic and must have for the vintage airplane theme party. The cheapest ones I found were from Discount Party Supplies and were 6.50 each.
The little flying airplane kits were a unique favor idea and would keep kids occupied for a bit building and then playing them.
I am a big fan of the passport invitation idea. I did this for Noah's first birthday which was a Safari theme and everyone ranted and raved about them. They were very simple to make with cardstock I got from Joannes.
