I created a minimalist paper airplane inspired birthday party for my 4 year old son. The kids made ice cream sundaes and wore hand made aprons.
My son loves all things transportation so when I saw a picture of a paper airplane I ran with the idea. Most of his friends are girls so I had to find a neutral balance.
I folded tiny paper airplanes and used a needle and fishing wire to string them together. I used double sided tape to keep them from slipping down the wire. Because the kids were making ice cream sundaes, I made each child an apron for their party favor. I also embellished plain white napkins with ric rack and pom poms.
I loved the cake and the garland.
Start early and try to complete one project every day.
