Airplane shower decorations and party supplies come in a variety of styles. You have your basic aviation themes where fighter pilots in the military are celebrated as heroes as well as soon to be mothers and fathers.
Then, there are the cute, pastel airplanes seen in the cartoons that are very popular with kids and will give your baby shower a light hearted atmosphere that may or may not reflect the colors used to design the room that’s ready and waiting for baby to arrive.

Military Plane Baby Shower Ideas
The airplane shower theme is centered around fighter jets and pilots that know their way around cutting edge technology as it pertains to instrument panels and other gadgets that the United States Air Force and other branches of the armed services spend a lot of time and money developing to protect our freedom. Get ready to break the sound barrier with your airplane baby shower ideas.
Break up the decorations in gun metal gray with giant, personalized banners congratulating the proud mom and dad on the birth of their new baby.
It’s only fitting that at least one giant piñata shaped like an airplane is flying overhead at the airplane shower. If your budget will allow, an entire fleet of planes will kick off the party in style. Hang one large plane piñata to use as a centerpiece and have your craft minded friends whip up some of the best (free!) paper airplanes they can manage to finish the job.
Another very inexpensive option is airplane shaped mylar party balloons which also give lots of bang for your decorating dollar.
If you have a friend with a model airplane collection you may see if he (or she) will trust you with a few models to use as a topper for the airplane theme diaper cake or as a centerpiece on the table where the airplane baby gifts are displayed.
VINTAGE AIRPLANE THEME BABY SHOWER IDEAS
Vintage airplane theme baby shower decorations and decorating ideas might reach back to the days of the Flying Aces in World War II or even further back to when Orville and Wilbur were hanging out in Kitty Hawk and planes were little more than experimental pictures on the drawing board.
Decorate the walls with vintage pictures or posters of WWII pilots and aviation scenes.
If a less serious party theme is to your liking, perhaps a Baby Snoopy shower is the way to go. Decorations featuring the Red Baron with his leather flight helmet, goggles and neck scarf waving in the wind will tickle the kids as well as the adults that are fans of the Peanuts and Charlie Brown cartoons.
Remember that it’s not necessary to have vintage aviator theme tablecloths, plates and napkins to successfully organize an airplane shower. Solid color decorative party supplies are fine so long as you do a good job of selecting airplane theme baby shower invitations to announce the theme of the party and fill the room with airplane themed memorabilia and decorations in complimentary colors.
Exhaust your resources for free decorations before you go to a party store to buy as you may find yourself overloaded with airplanes that you didn’t need.
I hope that our tips for hosting an aviation themed shower or party inspire you to use your imagination to concoct your own unique ideas for decorations, menu and games that will have your guests talking for days about how much fun they had at your event.
