An adorable new baby boy arrived in our neighbourhood this summer, and we just had to have a little party to celebrate! :)
My sister-in-law, Dayna, came up with the super cute "paper airplane" theme, and it was so much fun!
We went with a blue and orange colour scheme, and got cracking on folding a million or so paper airplanes.
We hot-glued them to a length of twine to make a garland...
And, really...what's a party without balloons? :)
To make the "Dax" banner, I hot-glued the airplanes to a blank canvas, and then looped grosgrain ribbon into the shape I wanted, and carefully attached it with little dots of hot glue. The letters were cut out of cardstock and felt, and then strung through with the ribbon.
We kept the food very simple....white cupcakes with cream-cheese icing (sort of made to look like clouds), with little paper airplane picks in them. (Hot-glued paper airplanes to small skewers).
Dayna made these adorable little airplane shaped sugar cookies. I'm pretty sure I ate at least 15 of them...and that's seriously not an exaggeration!
She also made these airplane grilled cheese sandwiches! (which we served with tomato soup)
And the guest of honour slept through it all ;)
Isn't he so cute? Perfect in every way.
Welcome to the world, little man! xo
