There's no better way to get back into the blogging routine than with a full blown party that's packed with eye candy, right?!!
I know most schools have already started, but this first class Back to School Party styled by Jenifer Banner from Banner Events is soooo beyond incredible that I'm sure you won't mind seeing it now! Plus, I have re-designed the printables as our "Little Aviator" Birthday Collection now available in the shop! ;)
Jen and I brainstormed on the theme, and she then came up with some fabulous ideas and concepts for the printables, which I was more than happy to design for her! They include boarding pass invitations, propeller straw decorations, printable milk cartons, "pilot fuel" bottle wrappers, and over 15 pages of aviation themed party printables to help you style a first class bash! :)
Check out below all the incredible details as seen on Bird's Party Magazine Issue 6 and HWTM + extra unseen shots, as told by Jen!
This was a very different style of shoot for me, doing it outdoors and using 'nature' and the airplane as my 'backdrop'. It was very out of my comfort zone, but a lot of fun, especially for the children.
Heighten excitement by sending out adorable ‘First Class’ boarding passes, inviting little pilots-in-training to come spread their wings. Of course, ‘learning passports’ will be needed as well, before travel. Once filled out, ‘the sky is the limit.
