I love the “traveling” theme. It works so well for a couples shower, birthday, farewell party, or even graduation. You can inject some fun and easy-to-find details for this theme, as seen above in this wedding shot by Stephanie Williams Photography.
The “flying” plane with banner is a fantastic way to highlight the dessert table. Of course suitcases are used to add height as well as placed open to hold an array of sweets. You can find metal model airplanes at places like Ross, HomeGoods, Hobby Lobby. Vintage-style mini suitcases can be found online, or the real deal can be found in thrift stores.
Accent the tables with signs that say, “I left my heart in (city),” and use maps to highlight favorite destinations. Have guests write notes for the occasion on the back of post cards and place them inside a small suitcase, to be read later by the guest of honor.
White and blue poms or lanterns can be hung to mimic the sky and clouds, and favors are wrapped up to look like little postal packages.
I’m sure you can think of other great options for the traveling theme, but this gorgeous celebration is a great place to start!
