paper airplane party

by Grace Bonney

Event planners always find ways to turn the humblest of ideas into the most exciting and breathtaking installations. Matthew Parker Events created this stunning room for a non-profit arts group called ArtsFund in Seattle. Their annual party was held at the Experience Music Project, so Matthew drew inspiration from a local company (and one of the biggest contributors to ArtsFund), Boeing. Over 1,000 paper airplanes were made using recycled newsletters from the offices of ArtsFund and were hung on monofilament line from the balcony to the stage. I love how much this feels like a child’s dream come to life. I would have killed to have this hanging on my ceiling growing up. You can check out more of the event at Matthew’s website right here. I’d love to see this concept on a smaller scale for everything from a child’s birthday party to a backyard wedding. xo, grace
