{Greyson’s Rocket 5th Birthday Party}


Toy Story 3 Inspired - Rocket & Aliens

Design Inspiration

My son loves Toy Story so we decided upon a {Rocket & Alien} party!  I love blues and limes together and this worked perfectly with Buzz Lightyear and the Alien characters.  It was just as we both dreamed!

Decorating Style

I love all styles: modern, traditional, classy, and elegant as long as it all sparkles!

Project Details

Theme: {Rockets & Aliens}

Colors: Blues & Limes

I designed the invitations from comics of Toy Story 3 with rockets and the letter "G".  I created a custom banner, favor tags, favor bags, food labels and birthday hats.

The kids had a picnic lunch including rocket peanut butter sandwiches and Toy Story grapes!

The {Dessert Bar} had a Rocket Cake, Rice Krispie Rockets, Cotton Candy Rockets with Pop Rock Aliens, Fondant Cookies and Buzz Lightyear Pez.

I love everything with polka dots so the napkins, plates, balloons and fabrics were polka dots.

The full post of the party is available here:

Shopping Links: - Alien Lunch Sacks - Fondant Cookie Toppers - Tissue Poms - Rocket Shirt

Favorite Items

I loved how the {Dessert Bar} turned out!  But my favorite item was the birthday hats!


When you are struggling with a party - step away from the theme and make it what you want.  As you incorporate your favorite items, the party turns out great!

Sparkle and polka dots always work!

Very creative on the goodie bags having three eyes!  I have never though blue and lime would work as green and blue never does, but these are all very beautiful.

Seems like a great party.  And I bet you had fun preparing for the party as well :)
