Vintage Airplane Birthday Party for Pottery Barn Kids

Vintage Airplane Party

Our latest project for Pottery Barn Kids is published! If you have a boy celebrating a birthday soon, you are going to love this party feature! This Vintage Airplane Birthday Party was inspired by airplane room decor I spotted in the upcoming (now current) issue of the PBK catalog! I started by having a custom airplane graphic designed by my favorite illustrator and then incorporated it into a new free printable collection. I wanted a modern, boyish color theme and chose navy and gray, which looked great against the Hudson Trestle Table & Chairs. For this party theme, we came up with creative dessert ideas/recipes, easy party craft tutorials and a game that your guests are sure to love! Check out all of the photos and then visit Pottery Barn Kids to learn how to create this party!
