Who doesn't feel the need for speed? This Air Force/ Top Gun was the perfect theme for a birthday boy who is obsessed with fighter jets. We loved the traditional color scheme of red, white, and blue and made sure all custom graphics and decor matched accordingly. The party began with a custom built pilot training obstace course that was led by no other than the famous pilot, Maverick, himself. He led kids through a net crawl, balance beam, hurdles, and even a nerf dart battle! After all the running around and swimming with airplane inflatables, kids sat at white picnic tables that were covered with a black runaway that had various toy fighter jets. We used large blue plates to act as chargers accompnaied with red smaller plates, and designed custom lunch boxes, water bottles, and juiceboxes to create a setting that was ready for take off. With overhelming high energy kids gathered around the dessert table to sing happy birthday and feast over ice cream sundaes and beautfiully decorated cupcakes. Exhausted from a fun packed day, each little pilot left home with a blue and white stripped towel perfect to use for the remainder of the summer!
