Elijah's second birthday party was this weekend. Here's the behind-the-scenes look at the theme/decorations (thank you, pinterest and the internet!).
This sign hung by the front door. You can't see it well, but the invitation is at the bottom. I made them look like airline tickets.
James hung paper airplane garlands around the house:
James and my sister Jen painted these AWESOME airplanes. We intended them to be for a photo booth type event, but things were pretty chaotic so we didn't have all the kids take pictures with them. Though of course we took Elijah's picture!
The cake and cupcakes (the cupcakes are supposed to look like clouds):
In flight refreshments (ginger ale and tiny cups!!!):
Emergency exit row:
Baggage drop off (gifts):
The craft table for the airplane building:
Elijah wouldn't cooperate for a picture in front of this sign, but we still have a week before his real birthday, so we'll get that photo later!
Baggage claim (the party favor bags look like suitcases and are filled with paratroopers and gliders):
International departures (the front door):
The back of the birthday boy's shirt:
And the front with an adorable expression as he says, "cheese!"
