Handmade hot air balloons, propeller planes, hot air balloon shaped cookies, vintage parcel thank you gifts… That’s our vintage up up and away birthday party.
I have been wanting to style a party like this for a while and finally I got the chance! My client’s son was turning one and what better way to celebrate! Travelling was part of the theme thus we had a world map backdrop which tied our theme quite nicely together.
Our thank you gifts were party boxes filled with yummy goodies and wrapped in brown paper to resemble vintage parcels. We went as far as having them stamped to really create a personalized and unique party favor. My baker, Tanya always impresses me with her lovely baked goodies! All the cupcakes, planes cake pops and hot air balloon shaped cookies were beautifully decorated. What’s more is that Tanya was so kind to have personalized cupcake holders printed for me to fit in my theme! Some of the goodies included on our main table were popcorn packed in vintage popcorn packets, candyfloss and jelly in vintage containers.
Our decor set up included a vintage suitcase, some vintage books and old crates. We created a photo booth with hay bales, vintage suitcases and a huge handmade hot air balloon basket. The birthday boy and other kids were able to climb in it for photos.
This vintage up up and away 1st birthday party by Outlandish Events was a blast and so much fun to plan and execute. More details to follow in the photos below. Leave us a comment with your thoughts!
