Disney Planes Party

My first born is officially four! And we celebrated the best way we knew how, with a Disney Planes Party featuring Dusty, but of course!

I had been working on his party for months and started decorating a couple of weeks before! I DIY'd some clouds and added touches of airplanes and dusty wherever I could!

Some of my favorite features were the cute Dusty boxes I found on clearance after Valentines day that were meant for collecting cards, I turned them into balloon holders.

The favor boxes were created out of lingerie gift boxes that I found at the dollar store. I added washi tape, some of the non-valentine valentine cards, stickers and a construction paper handle to make them look like suit cases. Inside there was a Dusty foam glider, bubbles and Planes stickers.

The food consisted of deli sandwiches from the grocery store, chips, dip, and pasta salad made by me.

For the dessert table  I made cookies and cupcakes. The cute cupcakes wrappers were designed by Shnookers.
Another cute feature were the peanuts and pretzels that I put in cellophane bags wth a cute label.  I placed those on the beverage cart just like a flight attendant would. On the beverage cart I also made a batch of infused water I called "Jet Fuel" it was infused with orange slices and blueberries and it went over really well.

For the kiddos I made "In-Flight Meals" I created a label and placed it on a Styrofoam container where I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and included grapes and goldfish crackers.

I decorated the house using lots of batting to look like clouds and balloons which the boys enjoyed for days after the party.

The party was great and my boy loved all the details which makes all the hard work SOO worth it!'
