As most parents can attest, time sure does fly, especially during those precious first years. So to slow things down for just a day, Tania, owner of Tania’s Design Studio, styled & DIYed this adorable “Time Flies” Airplane Themed 1st Birthday for her son.
I am especially loving all of the retro details, like the LIFE Magazine save the date & mini, old-school bomber jacket & pilot’s hat for the birthday boy. :) And if you’re as enamored by those propeller pops as we are, keep reading for instructions on how Tania put them together!
