I’ve spent the last six months or so planning my husband’s surprise 30th birthday party. His birthday is a week before Christmas and some years it is difficult to find time to celebrate. We’ve actually had a few Christmas parties on his birthday since I’ve known him! Not this year.Because he is about an inch away from getting his private pilots license I decided to make the theme aviation inspired with navy, blue and white. If you’ve ever looked for party inspiration online there is a ton for females and kids, but adult guy parties are something else. I found a lot of inspiration via weddings and kid’s birthday parties (I guess kids want to grow up to be pilots?).
Sadly, between setting up, keeping it a surprise and socializing with 50 close friends, there was never a moment for me to take pictures – a true shame. So, as a consolation prize, here’s some of the ideas we incorporated. Enjoy.
