A Grown-Up Paper Plane Birthday Party

Last weekend we celebrated my husband's birthday.  It was a last minute celebration that I threw together.  I wanted something fun, but classy.  Something easy an inexpensive, but that looked like it took me hours and hours to plan.  Isn't that really the goal for any party thrown?  I settled on paper airplanes.  I'm not entirely sure where this idea came from, but once I started working on it, it came together seamlessly!  I bought an old outdated atlas from Half Priced Books to make some planes, threw a globe in the mix and used my vintage film canisters to give the table some dimension.  For the cupcakes, I tried to make the frosting look like clouds that the planes were hovering above.  All in all, I love how it turned out!

We had such a blast with our families and having all the kiddos running around torturing our poor animals.  Needless to say, we all passed out around 9pm after all the craziness subsided.  It was so worth the exhaustion, though!
