My son Maverick turned six this past fall. Because he’s my youngest, I still can’t believe he’s six—he’ll always be my baby! For his birthday party theme this year, he wanted a party with rockets, so I began planning his outer space themed birthday party!
First, I designed space-themed party invites to match the theme using an astronaut holding planet balloons along with a “number 6” balloon. I even found a matching t-shirt for the birthday boy to wear that coordinated perfectly with my invitation design.
Alternating different plates, cups, napkins and straws added interest to the party tables. The Custom “Maverick is Outta this World” signs looked great between the balloon bouquets!
I also completed my first balloon garland with the help of Blush Balloon Party’s balloon garland kit. At first, I was a little overwhelmed when the box of deflated balloons arrived, but the process was so much easier than I had anticipated, and the instructions were great for a beginner like me. The process was very similar to flower arranging—start with your large ones first and fill in with small ones!
Now let’s talk about this cake! The fondant cake base and amazing galactic airbrushing was courtesy of Duff’s Cakemix. The custom fondant rocket ship, astronaut and planets were skillfully created by Liz at Les Pop Sweets!
Let’s blast off! A customized welcome sign greeted guests at the entry of his party. It makes a great photo op for the birthday boy, too.
I also designed these customized “thanks for making my birthday a blast” party favor tags for his favors. Our super easy and unique party favor idea? Astronaut food—freeze dried ice cream sandwiches! It was a hit with the kids.
I’m all about balloons at any birthday party—they add so much festive flair to any kids party! And what kid doesn’t love balloons? I found these adorable astronaut and earth balloons that were too cute to pass up!
My son had a “blast” at his outer space themed birthday party! I topped off his look with an astronaut spacesuit and helmet in the party colors and he couldn’t have been happier! He and his friends blasted to the moon and back in a cardboard rocket ship! Hooray for another year and a trip around the sun!
