Planning an airplane themed first birthday party can be an exciting experience. Whether you’re planning a big bash or a small gathering, these tips will help you create a memorable experience for the birthday boy or girl.

Airplane Birthday Invitations

Send out your invitations with an airplane theme. You can find airplane-themed invitations online or in party supply stores. Or you can make your own with a computer and printer. Try to include an airplane-related phrase like “Come fly with us for a first birthday celebration!” or “Come join us for a high-flying birthday bash!”

Airplane Themed Birthday Party Decorations

Decorate the space with an airplane theme. Hang streamers and banners in shades of blue, white and silver. Hang paper airplanes from the ceiling or walls. Place airplane cutouts around the room. You can also create a “flight path” on the floor with tape. You can make your own or purchase pre-made ones online or at a party store.

What are some good venues for an Airplane party?

Here are some of our favourite ideas:

An Aviation Museum: Hosting an airplane party at an aviation museum provides children with the opportunity to learn about the history of aviation and experience different types of airplanes up close. Many aviation museums offer party packages that include guided tours, activities, and hands-on exhibits.

An Airport Hangar: Renting out an airport hangar for an airplane party is an excellent idea for children who are fascinated by airplanes. The hangar can be decorated with airplane-themed props and banners, and guests can enjoy food, games, and activities surrounded by real airplanes.

A Flight School: For older children, hosting an airplane party at a flight school provides an opportunity to learn about aviation and experience what it’s like to fly an airplane. Flight schools often offer party packages that include simulator rides, aircraft tours, and other activities.

A Private Hangar or Airfield: For an exclusive experience, renting out a private hangar or airfield is a great venue idea for an airplane party. Guests can enjoy a private tour of the hangar, take photos with airplanes, and even experience a short airplane ride.
