Tali of A Party Studio created a handsome Helicopter Birthday Party to celebrate her son Asher’s second birthday. I love the way the reds and blues were woven throughout the party, and the touch of a vintage wooden helicopter was adorable. The Fueling Station was filled with treats to please children of all ages and the drink table really highlighted the blue and red color palette. I’m drawn to the way the theme of “clouds” is played out over and over again throughout the food, the party favors, and the tissue poms. There are so many sweet details happening that you will want to look at these photos more than once!
In The Spotlight:
- Fun DIY projects, including white tissue poms, hand painted letter “A”, popcorn cones
- Customized water bottle and candy bar labels, flags with Asher’s name on the cake pops, and hand decorated cookies
- Goodie bags filled with marshmallows and displayed in a adorable red suitcase
Helicopter Birthday Party
In Tali’s words…
“My son, Asher, is crazy about helicopters so the theme for his 2nd birthday party was very easy to decide.
For the decorations, I kept a very simple blue and red color scheme. I hung large white tissue pompoms from our chandelier to give the effect of clouds and I used blue paper fans on the backdrop. I purchased a wooden A and I spray painted it light blue. I figure that I can use this after the party in his bedroom.
For the dessert table, I ordered large sugar cookies from “C is for Cookie” to match the printables. One of my friends made vanilla bean cake pops for the table. She of course made them in blue and added red sprinkles. The chocolate cake and the vanilla cupcakes were from a local bakery. I also had Hershey Kisses which I’d personalized with stickers that said “A Kiss From Asher”.
Since his party was in the morning, we served breakfast food, including powdered doughnuts which we called “Doughnut Clouds”…. The kids thought that was fantastic. For the adults, we served a green chili sausage casserole and fresh fruit with dipping sauce.
The majority of the children at the party were aged between two and four years old, we decided to forego traditional party games. Instead, we had a plethora of toys available for them to play with and we set up a glitter tattoo station. That was a huge hit with the parents as well as the kids! Since we had Danielle from All Things Great and Small Photography taking photos at the party I was able to relax and do the glitter tattoos instead of behind a camera taking photos the whole time.
For the party favors, we gave out “Marshmallow Clouds”. These were basically glassine envelopes that I’d filled with large white marshmallows. I added a large label and tied a “thank you for flying with me” hang tag using blue and white twine. I displayed them up at the drink station inside a red cardboard suitcase with a tag that read ‘Baggage Claim’.”
