Free Airplane Birthday Party Printables

airplane party

So yesterday you saw how Ramona’s 3rd Birthday party turned out. Honestly, it was amazing. It’s her third time through and it’s official now: Amber can freaking plan a birthday party.

This year, as usual, my main job was in the graphics department. Above is the invitation I designed (with address taken out). It was intended to be teal / red / white, but the teal ended up looking more light blue on paper (and on PCs).

The invitation and the Red Jett Sweets truck were the inspiration behind all the graphics I made. And since I stayed up late many nights last week and we only used them once, Amber and I thought we’d post the PDF files for free download and non-commercial use (just don’t try and sell them on etsy or anything, yes people do crap like that).

Here’s what one side of the tablescape looked like. We had popcorn in the blue paper bags, airplane shaped sandwiches, and a cheese plate on a USA shaped cutting board (repurposed as art later).

The IN-FLIGHT SNACKS banners are on an 11×17 PDF. We printed them off on card stock.

The badges for the popcorn (could be used for anything) are in 8.5×11. These were printed on regular printer paper, cut out and glued to the blue paper bags from Target.

The labels on our cheese tray were typed, but I set up an 8.5×11 of blank ones that can be used for anything (and written in).

Here’s our drink station.

I loaded the DRINKS banner with some extra labels, just because I’m a nice guy.

The drink labels are set up to fit the 1/2 liter Ozarka bottled waters.

I created little baggage check and baggage claim signs that let people know where to drop presents and grab their party favors.

Also, here are the labels I made for the party favors and left blank for you to write your little guests names in.

For the photobooth, I added the clouds and airplane to the file.

I made the banner more general to say “Happy birthday.” It’s 8.5×33. We printed it out on 3 separate pieces of paper and glued them on some poster board.

For the pin the propeller on the airplane, I drew the plane on some butcher paper with a marker.

And these guys got printed out on red card stock and subsequently cut out.

Amber found airplane launchers at the Dollar Tree, so we made a game for the kids to land their plane in either Los Angeles, New York, or Orlando (places Ramona went this year). Then fly back to Dallas-Fort Worth. It worked better having them just throw the plane into their destinations hula hoop instead of using the launchers. Most of them were 3, so using the launcher was just past their skill level.

So the distance and location of the destinations wasn’t quite geographically correct, but we let that slide.

I took Ramona’s name out of the sign so anyone can use it.

Here’s all the PDFs in a zip file. Feel free to download and use them however you wish. If you do, send us some pictures! We’d love to see how they’re being used.


**Remember these printables are for personal use only. You may not sell them. Also if you blog about the party and use the printables, please be kind and reference back to us.

UPDATE: Some people have been having issues with the zip file, so I dumped all the pdfs into our media library so you can download them individually below:

    I just stopped by to see your dress that you left a comment about on Making it Lovely. So cute! I told Nicole I have almost the exact same dress, I wore it to get married in (it was a simple JP wedding) and I’ve been wanting to wear it again but didn’t know how to style it up…I love your boots and jacket with it! Also, your blog is so cute! :-)

    • Amber says:

      Thanks Shelly! When I bought the dress I thought this would make a great wedding/anniversary dress! Good call for your wedding! Congratulations too! Maybe if I throw a party for our 10 year (2014) anniversary I will wear it. I’m really loving the lace look right now. I was worried about putting a blazer over it, but once I had it on I really liked it. Love how Nicole put flats with it. Thanks again for stopping by!

    Where did you get the suitcases? We’re having our twin boys 3rd bday in May 2013 at Frontiers of Flight (on Love Field in Dallas) and thought it would be cute to put their ‘Baggage Claim’ items in.

    • Amber says:

      That sounds like a lot of fun Kerri! I’ve been wanting to take Ramona there. We got the suitcases at an antique store. I spray painted them and lined them with fabric. You can read more about the table details here. Hope that helps!

  3. While I wait for those slippers to come back up 😉 (they …. slipped …. out in the rss feed) I just wanted to say again how awesome this party is. I love all the party games and all the print-outs for drinks etc. Love it all :) Now I can’t wait for Ramona to turn 4 :)

    • Amber says:

      LOL! I’m such a dork I scheduled the post for 5 AM instead of 5 PM. It will be back shortly! Sometimes I’m not that great with that thing called the internet!

      I secretly can’t wait for her next party either. The only downside being I would like for her to quit growing up. Maybe I should throw some holiday parties for her and her friends instead just to have the party experience without the whole year older thing! 😉

    Thank u for sharing it, u guys are amazing. Loved all your works

  5. Stephanie says:

    Do you have a file for the invitation (couldn’t find it in the zip file)? It’s just so cute and we wanted to use it for a baby shower invitation!

  6. Evelyn says:

    Thank you so much for the file! I am planning a baby shower for my sister and this fit perfectly!

  7. Lisa says:

    Hi Amber
    I just tried downloading your PDF file but it says it contains a virus. Are you able to email me the following files, propellers for pin the propeller game and the favor tags?

  8. Lauren Stewart says:

    I just tried to download the PDF files and it kept saying the files were damaged. Could you email them to me? This is going to be so cute for my twin boys 2nd birthday party!! My email is Thanks!!

  9. tessa says:

    Just stumbled across your blog and am in the midst of planning my son Leo’s 2nd bday. It is at a private airport near the airfield – so we are playing up the obvious theme. :) Thanks so much for sharing the pdfs. Any chance you could send through the invite? It is darling and would be just right for our party. If you are willing, it would be fantastic if you could send it to my email. Thanks in advance! All your ideas are great.

    • Amber says:

      We actually have the invite saved on another computer that is currently in storage. Originally we didn’t put it up as part of the others because the banners are so thin you would have to use photoshop to fill out the information. Sorry! Best of luck with your party! We’d love to see pictures!

  10. Amy Vesser says:

    I am working on an airplane theme for my little boy’s 2nd birthday and came across your perfect blog post on Pinterest. I am having the same trouble as a previous poster, and cannot open the PDF file for the birthday printables. If they are still available, would you be able to email them to me?
    Thank you very much!

  11. Suzanne says:

    Any chance you’d be willing to email me the files? My son is having a super airplane party for his school friends and these printables would be perfect!

  12. Lendee says:

    I am also having an airplane party for my one year old son and I was hoping you could send me the PDFs. Thank you!

  13. Lendee says:

    Im sorry here is the correct email. Thanks :)

  19. Kenzie says:

    I want to thank you so much for letting me use these printables for free. My son is turning one in a week and I’ve been overwhelmed with trying to make my own! Yours are perfect, I can’t wait to print them up!

  20. Thanks so much for the printables! I make a lot of printables myself and post them on my blog though not as organized as you as I’m a veterinarian and digital design is just a hobby of mine. My hubby just got hired by American Airlines and I wanted to throw him a little Congratulatory get together with friends and I loved that I don’t have to now make my own stuff for the party! Thanks again.

  21. CHRIS says:

    Any chance that computer is out of storage that has the invite file?? I’d love to use it as the format for a sign at a baby shower I’m throwing in a couple of weeks! In any event, this is all adorable and I’m so thankful for your generosity :)

    • Amber says:

      The computer is not out of storage which I promise makes me sadder than you about that situation! :) Hopefully in a few months we can have something out there for you. I guess that really doesn’t help! I’m sorry!

  22. Jayme says:

    Hi! Love everything! I’m planning a first bday party for my son and would love to use your print outs. Is there anyway I could print them out??
