Airplane Birthday Party Invitations | How to Choose Airplane Birthday Invitations

If you are planning a birthday party for your child and you are looking for a theme that is popular and fun, try throwing an Airplane Themed Birthday Party. There are many ways to incorporate the airplane theme into your party as flying can be depicted in many different manners. The first and perhaps most important step is choosing an Airplane Themed Birthday Invitation.

A birthday invitation is the first form of correspondence your guest will see with regard to your child’s party. It is important to choose an invitation that is eye catching and fun, while still reflecting your child’s sense of style. One of the first things you should do, is choose a color scheme for your party and try to find an invitation that will fall into that scheme. If you find an airplane themed invitation that you absolutely love, you may want to tailor your color scheme to fit that invitation, as not all invitations have various color options.

When choosing an airplane  themed birthday invitation try to figure out the type of invitation you are looking for. Do you want something whimsical and cartoon-ish? Or perhaps you want something a little more stylish and sophisticated to go with a particular age group. There are many options that can be utilized for either type of invitation. Is your child into propeller planes or more of the fighter jet type of aircraft. Either way, you can incorporate the flying or airplane theme into your party by choosing the right invitation.

If you are looking for a whimsical invitation, whether for a small child’s airplane themed party or an older/teenage person, it is best to choose something that is colorful and eye appealing. Most colorful invitations have a cartoon-ish nature and depict child or baby pilots. This Airplane Birthday Party Invitation features a landing strip with several primary colored airplanes circling the runway. The tag line, “come up, up and away” is the perfect mix of whimsy and fun for a child’s birthday invitation.

If you are looking for a more sophisticated and mature airplane themed birthday party invitation, try choosing and invitation with less of a focus on an actual cartoon plane and more design elements. Silhouette invitations are very popular right now and often feature few colors and contrasting shades. Flourishes and floral elements can compliment a silhouette invitation and give it an older, more trendy appeal. Vector image invitations printed on high quality card stock will help achieve this look. Sketched or charcoal drawn airplanes can create a timeless look as work as an airplane themed birthday invitation for any age.

No matter which invitation you choose for your airplane themed birthday party, remember that guests will get a first glimpse into your special day by opening their invitation. Choose a design that represents you or your child and is something that guests would want to put up on the fridge, rather than in a drawer. Accessorize with matching airplane themed address labels, thank you cards and stickers to take your party from ordinary to “extraordinary”.
