An Airplane Birthday Party for Landon

Last weekend we celebrated Landon's 2nd birthday with a super fun red and turquoise vintage airplane party. Landon loves airplanes, and it worked out perfectly that the day of his party was also the day of an event at the small local airport, so we had airplanes and helicopters flying over our yard during the whole party!

We kept things pretty low key, and while I got a few ideas from Pinterest, the goal was to let Landon and his friends have fun without us spending hundreds of dollars on stuff that nobody even cares about. (Admit it, people. Pinterest parties are nuts!)

I went to my friend Charlotte at The Paper Cupcake for printables. Guys, she is awesome. She did these custom invitations, banner, and cupcake toppers for us, and I was so pleased with how they turned out!

Matt made the absolute best cupcakes on the planet. He's our resident cake guy, and he did not disappoint. He found a new recipe to try, and I'm even sharing it here because it would be completely unfair to keep that goodness to ourselves. Try it out and thank me later.

My mom orders special birthday plates for the grandkids every year. They're super cute and the kids love having them to eat off of throughout the year!

We are completely spoiled to have our own personal photographer. :) Thank you SO much for documenting this party, Allison! (Don't forget to check out her incredible work at Allison Jean Photo. She is seriously the best.)

We love our little two year old!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help us celebrate! We are so thankful to have such amazing people in our lives. Friends and family, check out the rest of the pictures here!
