Fly on by and have some fun!

Today brings another airplane party. This one is a biggie, so be ready for lots of pics! The two airplane parties I've done previously used a different designer's invitations as the basis. This client wanted something a little "busier" to suit her taste. After giving her an example of a few airplanes that would suit what she was looking for, I drew one that matched the colors she requested and made the invitations, which I included in an earlier blog. In case you missed them, here is how they turned out:Then I got to work on the rest of her items.
The entire collection...
The banner...
The cupcake toppers...
The door sign with Sara's clever wording "Carter's party arrivals here!"
and the party hats...
The cup wrappers and confetti...
Then my favorite thing yet...luggage tags to put on the favors and a baggage claim sign for the table that the favors will be on...
When Sara, Carter's mom, and I were first discussing options for his party, she asked if I knew anyone who could make her a t-shirt for Carter's party. Can you guess who I sent her to? Yes, Rachel at Goldenshop. You may be beginning to think that this is her blog, too, but its only because what her and I do go so well together and you all know how I love things that match and anything themed! Plus she never updates her blog anyway, right Rach? :) Here is the t-shirt and the bib that she made:I told you this was going to be a biggie! After Sara received her items in the mail, she decided to order a few more things, so then I sent her these:
More cup wrappers,
more confetti,
and 2 yard signs that will be attached to stakes in the yard directing people to the party...
The party is this coming weekend...can't wait for those pics, Sara!

Does Rachel have another Etsy account? It shows as a deleted account. I love her t-shirts!
