I wanted to try a twist on the ever so popular airplane theme. After much though, I decided to go with a Top Gun party. I figured it was the perfect way for guests to enjoy themselves and it would allow me to get extremely creative with the decor.
Since my son would be turning 2 , I knew I wanted to incorporate the deuce symbol since everyone would be asking him how old he was. After thinking of movie quotes I thought it would be a nice pun to use the word "deuce" instead of "goose" for his birthday shirt.
I kept the color scheme simple with patriotic colors and made all the items with my cutting machine.
Overall, I was very pleased with the outcome and guests loved my homage to the classic movie.
