Brenden’s Airplane Birthday | Dallas Event Coordinator

Yesterday I had to pleasure of decorating and coordinating an airplane-themed birthday party for a very special 3-year-old. Brenden celebrated his birthday to the fullest at the Frontiers of Flight Museum with a bounce house, a band, gourmet pizza and an airplane-themed play area! I worked with his mother, Marsha, to personalize each and every decoration down to the last water bottle. Marsha’s family works for Coca-Cola so it was appropriate that the party was held in the Coca-Cola room at the museum. Three created a logo for Brenden’s very own airlines and we incorporated this into the signs, labels and party favors. The journey began when guests received an invitation in the form of an airline ticket and ended with guests taking home their very own suitcase party favors. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome aboard Brenden Airlines (and please forgive my amateur photography)!

Marsha was thoughtful enough to provide food and dessert for all guests needing a gluten-free option.


Guests were given their own suitcase filled with airplane-themed goodies and complete with a luggage tag as their parting gift for flying Brenden Airlines.
Happy 3rd birthday Brenden!

A special thank you to all the vendors that helped make this event a success…

I am aware that summer is not officially over, but in Texas we got a taste of cooler weather this week which is unheard of for August and it reminded me that Fall is just around the corner! As a result, I can’t help but anticipate my favorite season with a few Etsy finds that I would love to get my hands on…

Tissue Poms

I subscribe to GroopDealz and today they have a great deal on pre-made tissue poms in a variety of colors that are often difficult to find at the store. The poms are $2.10 per pom plus shipping and tax. If you buy multiple, shipping is cheaper. Visit GroopDealz website to purchase.

Also, I stock up on most of my party supplies through GroopDealz. In the past they have sold everything from vintage straws and washi tape to baker’s twine and milk bottles. If you subscribe to their emails you will hear about their deals first hand but order quickly! Their website has crashed multiple times when popular party items are sold and favorite colors sell out fast!
