{Real Parties} Little Aeroplane Party

I can't believe my little boy is 4 !!  To celebrate this year, we had a very small indoor "do" with family, his cousins and a couple of his very closest friends...

The best part of a party to me - is the building excitement for the birthday boy (and his big sister, event planner Miss Sambellina herself) in the party lead-up. We had so much fun preparing the treat bags together, making styrofoam aeroplanes, setting up the party table and planning the entertainment and games.
I love how completely absorbed and involved they both get with their birthday parties. Being simple and small, it was a lot of fun to put together.

The hero of the party were the amazing baked goodies custom made by Kiss Me Kate Events. I could gush all day about how beautiful the cupcakes and cookies were. I gave Kate a small brief and our custom designed invitation, and look at how perfectly matched these gorgeous cupcakes are !!!!! They were like little art masterpieces too good to eat, but all reported they tasted as great as they looked. Kate is an artistic baking genius.

I would also like to mention the enormous generousity of Gaby from Love To Celebrate in Roseville, Sydney who sent me samples of styrofoam aeroplanes and aircraft party favours to make it so easy to theme everything up. The aeroplanes were great for our indoor air races (to a Top Gun soundtrack of course)....and the kids had fun making them up ready to race. Thank you Gaby !!

My first attempt at tissue pom poms as clouds. They were somewhat amateur but who says clouds need to be neat. Check out the Martha Stewart tutorial - easy peasy.

A little party table with helium balloons. Kids really do love to find their initials and their personalised place before devouring the party food. We had a little blackboard runway in the middle of the table set out with some of Christian's massive aeroplane collection.

I remembered why I started up a party related business in the first place - they really are so much fun !!!
