Harvey’s 4th Birthday Party – Space Theme

Harvey's 4th Birthday - Space Theme

It was my youngest son’s 4th birthday yesterday, so we celebrated with a space-themed party. It was my first attempt at creating a candy buffet table, and even though I ran out of time to create all the little food signs to decorate the table, I was very happy with how it all turned out. Due to time restraints, I ended up buying pre-printed space invitations with a red, white and blue colour scheme, and then simply carried those colours through everything else at the party. Even the guests came dressed in a combination of red, white and blue — very festive!

I created a space rocket cake (thankyou Women’s Weekly cake book!) complete with sparklers for ‘lift off’. We had a couple of space-themed activities for the kids, as well as a round of pass-the-parcel to the tune of The Wiggles ‘Space Dancing’ DVD. There were star-shaped cookies, space jelly, red and blue cupcakes, and yummy popcorn which was very popular.

A good time was had by all — especially my happy little birthday boy!

Best bargain buys for the day:

- The red, white and blue striped fabric I used for the tablecloth was only $6.00 per metre at Spotlight. I fell in love with it on sight.

- The little space robot colour-in stickers were $2.00 for a pack-of-four at my local discount shop. They made a great activity for the kids, and they got to take them home with them.

- The paper lantern ‘planets’ hanging above the table were a bargain buy off eBay — only $1.00 each. And they are so awesome, I think I want to keep them up forever!

Here’s a few more party pics….enjoy!

Always popular…Lego! We sorted the pieces into red, white and blue so the kids could build their own space vehicles.

  1. Oh my goodness. Mothers like you are the reason mothers like me never attempt to decorate a kids party. You are welcome to come and throw a party for my kids any time (oh, is that another business idea right there?)So amazing.
