Party Inspiration - Rockets & Space

Morning! Hope you're all well.  Today I hope you are ready to blast off into space as I have spent the last few days seeking out some fab rocket and space themed party inspiration.  This theme could be inspired by the NASA Apollo spaceships and spacemen with an alien or two.  Food could be inspired by space food, popcorn moon rocks anyone?  Or perhaps drinks could be renamed Rocket Fuel. Rocket building could be a fun activity, get large cardboard boxes and split the children into teams to build a rocket.  This is even better if you can do it the garden and let them paint and embelish their rockets.  A smaller version can be easily made with a cardboard tube and some tissue paper turbo balst fire at the base.


This card from Ruby Wren Designs would also make a great invitation.

My eldest son had a rocket cake for his fourth bithday, which is nearly ten years ago! I guess some party themes never go out of fashion.  Have you had a rocket or space theme for a party? Please do share with us here, on our Facebook page or on twitter.  We always love to see your parties, don't forget to share! (Submission guidlines for real party features can be found here).

Have a great day,
