Back in February we featured Travel Themed Party DIY Compass Place Cards . At the time we promised to follow up with more travel themed party ideas. And ever since, we have been collecting ideas. For weddings we love Beau-coup's exclusive Our Greatest Adventure party supplies. These travel themed party supplies are right on trend since today’s young couples tend to focus more on life experiences and less on consumable goods. Hence, it seems very appropriate their celebrations reflect this philosophy of life.
Truthfully, we have also been a bit obsessed with the concept of interweaving an adventure inspired travel themed party across numerous lifecycle celebrations. In addition to weddings think graduations, mitzvah and quinceanera celebrations, and even retirement parties.
Update! For the next few weeks Beau-coup is offering up to 25% OFF many of their Our Greatest Adventure and other travel themed party supplies and decor. Each day's deal will be clearly posted at the top of the page.
Set the tone of your party with the perfect invitation. We still prefer printed and mailed invites to online invitations. For whatever reason, we inevitably forget to RSVP, or even attend, events when we do not have the invitation hanging on our magnet board. Here is our hands down favorite adventure invitations. All the print below the globe can be personalized!
We are jumping ahead of ourselves a bit here but check out how wonderfully these mini globe party favors coordinate with the invitations! And if you want these globe party favors to match your invitations, simply substitute blue & white chocolate colored drops for the pink candies!
Now add a globe centerpiece by picking up an inexpensive globe from pretty much anywhere. Display it on top of one or two stacked Mini Suitcase Wishing Wells. Set the globe off-center and add a few loose flowers. (See luggage centerpiece inspiration below.)
Travel Themed Party Decorations
Remember, everything from your centerpieces to your place cards to your party favors to your buffet table decor, adds to the total look. In party planning all the little the details really do matter. Choose a color palette, a visual theme or mix and match. The best parties always reflect the host's individual style.
Let's start with the no brainer – the Travel Themed Party DIY Compass Place Cards. Again, choose your ribbon color to coordinate with the rest of your party decor.
Travel Themed Party Favors
If you prefer something a little less crafty, or like a simpler look, here are a few more party favor / escort card ideas. Save money by using your party favors as your place cards!
Mini Suitcase Party Favors & Decor
And if you choose to go the suitcase route, you can even coordinate your centerpiece. Using the images below as inspiration, purchase Mini Suitcase Wishing Wells for each table and fill them with flowers and candles, faux pearls and even white evening gloves. Feel free to paint or decorate the suitcase any way you please — just because it arrives white does not mean it needs to stay that way. Be creative! Be you!
