Transportation Party!

I've been busy as a bee these days creating some new designs for my shop, and today I'm so happy to reveal the photos from the new TRANSPORTATION PARTY SET.

Brittany from Grey Grey Designs contacted me to collaborate on a PLANES, TRAINS and AUTOMOBILES party for a sweet 2 year old boy who loves trains. Drawing inspiration from the "Ready, Set, Go!" fabric from Robert Kaufman, I got to work creating a printables set perfect for all those little boys who love things that GO!  

I was thrilled to see the photos from the party and hear more from Brittany on her creative details.

Starting at the front door, Brittany gave the guests a sneak peek of the fun inside with an adorable door sign made with the TRANSPORTATION PRINTABLES and some orange craft foam. 

For the party table, Brittany explains, "I wanted the backdrop to be a literal sky. So, using a blue sky fabric from Hobby Lobby, I added some clouds made from cardboard and pillow batting--a super easy project for very little money. 
And, I strung the banner from the back of the airplane to suggest the airplanes that fly messages through the sky."

My favorite creative idea of Brittany's the ADORABLE cupcake stand she made from hatboxes and small cardboard/chipboard pieces. She used spray paint for some of the pieces and the coordinating papers from the printables collection to add pops of color and pattern.

And can you even believe how CUTE those fondant cupcake toppers are? Brittany from Edible Details is the genius behind these amazing little creations! 
Did you notice how they perfectly match the party printable designs? Genius! Brittany is my first email when I'm collaborating on a party project. If she's on board, you KNOW it's going to be a great party!

Brett's mom, Jennifer, and Brittany worked together to come up with fun names for all the foods.... "Car Tires" for chocolate covered donuts, bagels were "Steering Wheels," "Stoplight Skewer" fruit kabobs, "Antifreeze" for a green drink, and "Cloud Dip" which was marshmallow fluff and graham crackers.  

Brittany says, "to bring in the trains, we did 'Lumps of Coal,' which were simply rice krispie treats with black food coloring. They were a fun touch, especially for kids! We joked that you would certainly be able to tell who had one, just by the color of their mouth!

I love how Brittany used the road signs from the printables collection throughout the party space to carry the theme. She simply hot glued the signs to dowels painted black and then inserted them into foam covered in grass-print scrapbook paper. She also used artificial grass from Hobby Lobby for a fun embellishment.

For favors, Jennifer liked the idea of train whistles and conductor hats, and those are always an easy find on Oriental Trading's website. I tied them with a favor card from Amanda's Parties To Go and some cute ribbon to match the theme." 

FABULOUS JOB, Brittany! Thank you so much for sharing all of your inspirational ideas and fun party photos with us!

Birth certificate are issued without names also becoz changing the name in birth certificate is not permissable .You can get your name add in birth certificate from the Registrar who had issued your certificate .Apply with simple application and the old certificate they will issue you birth certificate with your name on it. Till 1 year of age it is free to add name and after 1 to 16 years it is 5rs only . Recently the Registrar general of india had allowed the age relaxation to more then 16 years of age also . So tha they can also add their name on BC.i hope It wil help you.

Wow, what a fantastic idea for a party theme! The "Transportation Party Set" sounds like an absolute blast, especially for little ones who adore planes, trains, and automobiles. The collaboration between you and Grey Grey Designs must have been incredibly creative and inspiring. I can only imagine the excitement on the faces of those kids when they see all the themed decorations and activities. If you're ever looking to add an extra touch of fun to the festivities, consider incorporating a Rent a Car in Islamabad station for the little adventurers to play and explore!
