Airplane Themed Birthday Party

I am planning my husband's 30th birthday party and I want to have an airport/airplane theme. The party will take place at our home (indoors and out). If you have any ideas, please pass them along. What are things you automatically connect with an airport or airplane?

Hi WHAT A GREAT IDEA FOR A PARTY.

My immediate thoughts were:

Xray machine

sick bags

food on individual trays

plastic cutlery

minature bottles of alcohol

safety lecture

luggage

hand luggage

destination board

safety announcements

big clock

sure that you could incorporate these features into your party setting

I always think of the uniforms. Is that weird?

What about boarding pass invitations, designating certain areas as gates (hang a sign by the food that says GATE 4, by the bathroom, etc) and little bags of peanuts!

I thought of barf bags, too!! You can always play "pin the blank on the blank" adapting pin the tail on the donkey. How about pin the propeller on the airplane? I wonder if you could get those little "junior pilot" and "junior stewardess" wings they used to hand out to kids who were flying? Maybe serve the meal/snacks/whatever on little trays. Have a tape recording playing in the background saying "the white zone is for loading and unloading only" and "Mr. Smith, please pick up the white courtesy phone" over and over and over, for the proper ambience .....

Use fruit rollups for the runways on the cake. Cut an aluminum can in half for hangars. Don't forget that a runway has compass headings on it; use his age! Have a paper airplane-making contest.

I just had a flash of inspiration -- you should serve WINGS!!!

You could get either some little wooden glider airplanes or make a lot of paper airplanes. Because it is indoors and out, they might be fun.

You could also look for food trays that look like the ones on the airplanes.

If you live in Eastern Massachusetts or Southern New Hampshire and are looking for the perfect idea for an airplane themed birthday party, please visit http://www.flyingscool.com. We will bring in 2 flight simulator stations with controls just like those found in a real airplane. Fly anywhere in the world to over 24,000 airports, even see the road you live on or land on your favorite lake with one of the available floatplanes. Over 100 different aircraft to choose from to fly. Great fun for BOTH children AND adults! You don't need to be a pilot to fly, we'll give instruction to help everyone get up in the air and land and whatever else they'd like to do in between. We can set up anywhere, either inside or out. There are also links on the site to birthday party ideas (mostly kids, but could be applicable to adults). Hope to see you soon!
