waite turns one

Waite's birthday was took place at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum. I took the location and ran with the airplane theme. My first task was to design the logo for Waite Airlines. The invitation was designed to look like a airline ticket with rounded corners, bar code, a logo and every other detail I could think of. And of course the ticket had to go in a folder just like the real thing. So I designed the front of the folder with a cute rhyme "fly on over for some fun, our little boy is turning one." The inside of the folder is cut at an angle with website information list for details including directions and a map. And then it was time to go overboard with the use of the logo on the favors. First a sticker for the box. And then individualized luggage tags with each kids name on it. A passport airplane coloring book, candy airplanes and pretzels rounded out the logo usage.

Since the party was at a museum which the birthday party attendees could tour, stickers were needed to designate who was with the group. Family all add official names tags - mommy and daddy were pilot and co-pilot, the birthday boy was first class passenger, others were flight attendants, air traffic controllers and the list goes on. I also created matching thank you notes, address labels, a baggage claim sign for the favor table and a curbside check-in sign for the gift table.
The family was going to have a party on the actual birthday with a theme of "flight crew training". The invitation was very simple but coordinated none the less. Of course, no birthday party is complete without a hand painted banner to say "happy birthday". And while I had the paint out I figured I might as well paint a "tablecloth" for the food table. And a runway for decorations and to color on.
