Ashley of Attention 2 Detail Events is one of my very favorite party planners, so when she asked if I’d come up with a few custom printables for an upcoming baby shower, I jumped at the chance! The shower was a special one, since it was for Ashley’s cousin, and it had a most unique theme – air travel! (So cute!)

When I got on board for the project (pun intended, oh yes, I went there), the invitation was already chosen – a flight ticket in a handmade map envelope. The colors were also set, in red, white and blue. And of course, there were to be airplanes, clouds, and lots of travel-based details!

Now, Ashley’s probably going to kill me (eek!), but here’s the drawing that she sent me that shows one of her ADORABLE ideas in its planning stages. It’s a unique way to display hand-written advice cards for the mother-to-be. Isn’t Ashley creative? : ) And, here’s what I came up with to match!

Here’s how the advice cards looked at the party – love ’em!

Then, for the rest of the party printables, here’s the look that we came up with:

So that was my part of the project. Meanwhile, Ashley’s part was just beginning – and just look at all of the wonderful details she brought to life!

Party guests – or rather, passengers! – were offered raspberry lemonade Jet Fuel, or a selection of wines and beers. Tiny airplanes added a cute touch to the red and blue cups.

Ashley made the diaper cake herself, and little airplane cupcake toppers flew over bright blue cupcakes – all displayed on miniature red luggage.

Here’s an idea I really, really LOVE! Lunches were served to guests in takeout boxes, just like on a plane! The in-flight meal included a croissant sandwich, chips, a pickle, and a custom Meyer Airlines cookie. Genius!

Guests enjoyed “in-flight snacks” of the good ol’ airplane classic – peanuts!

At the end of the shower, each guest was given a thank you parcel, including a luggage tag and a blue or red airplane chocolate lollipop. Stamps, red and white twine, and favor tags completed each piece of “air mail.”

Fabulous work, Ashley!! : )
