A "Cars, Trains and Planes" birthday theme is a wonderful idea for a little boy's birthday celebration or even for an older man who loves automotives, locomotives and aircraft. A cars, trains and planes birthday opens the gate for a number of festive invitation ideas you can utilise to add to the theme of the gathering and introduce guests to theme as well.
Do invitations in the shape of a car, train or plane. Do all three to mix up the look of the invitations. Write a cute headline pertaining to each piece of transport. For cars the headline could read, "Head Down the Highway to John's Birthday Party," while train invites could say, "Next stop John's Birthday Party" and plane invites could read, "Destination: John's Birthday Party." Decorate cutouts with glitter, acrylic paints or puff paint to add some dimension.
Cute Invitation Border
Have simple invites of either a basic card or a piece of rectangular paper and add a car, train and plane border. Purchase three small stamps--one of a car, one of a train and one of a plane, and use different-coloured stamp pads for each stamp. Stamp around the edges of the invites in the same order all the way around. Another idea is to use stickers, which you might be able to find in small sizes at your local craft store.
Add to the plane theme by sending out invites in the template of a plane ticket. Look online at airline sites to see if they have photos of plane tickets, or use an old plane ticket and photocopy it, taping new text pertaining to the birthday party over original ticket information. You could also do this with train tickets, or for a car, use a bus ticket.
Cartoons and Coloring Invitations
For a kid's party have invitations with a cartoon car, cartoon train and cartoon aeroplane on the front. Head to local party supply stores to see if they have cards like this, or if you are a skilled artist, draw it yourself and make copies for invites. If you aren't skilled in drawing, ask a friend who is, or commission a local artist to draw the invites. Another fun idea is to leave cartoon invites black and white so guests can colour them and bring them to the party to hang up as decor
