Vintage Plane Party
Today was the day, the day H turned 4 (well our party day anyway). It was also a bit of a farewell party.
It was a small party and a lovely day with special friends.
Here is the quick summary...
The invite was a postcard I made from an old book illustration.
The plane made from a box (instructions here)
I used a trolley to serve (like in the air) the hot food (meatball tomato mini subs) and cold chicken waldorf salad rolls with fruit salad cups.
We also had Hs favourite sushi rolls.The dessert table had cupcakes with chocolate planes, caramel cashew tarts, mini fruit flans, meringues, sultana almond mini cakes and the birthday cake was a double layer chocolate cake with cream and strawberries in the middle and chocolate mousse icing.
Goodie bags were made with $2 cotton bags fromTypo (all the money goes to charity- Bonus!).
We played a few games - musical clouds (kids fly around like planes and when the music stops they must land on a cloud), scavenger hunt for toy planes and most of the time was spent making paper planes and flying them onto a map of the world (if you land in the water you are out!) and then making more planes and flying them around the backyard.
Not as big as the normal parties, but nice and cosy and fun.
Happy Birthday our cute,funny and adorable boy.
