2. Space Party Backdrop
If he can do it, then so can you!
3. Alien Balloons
I adore these alien balloons by “Crazy Wonderful”. It’s a simple idea, that is easy to recreate and looks fantastic.
This makes the perfect kind of party decoration.
For another easy and fun balloon idea, check out these balloon planets by “Play Party Plan”.
A space party wouldn’t be the same without a few planets dotting around the ceiling, and knowing how easy these are to make, there are no excuses.
5. Outer Space Garland
This outer space garland is a decoration that you can get the kids to help out with. Kids always love to paint, and you can then help them to string the planets together.
“One Charming Party” will show you exactly how it’s done.
6. Spaceship Photo booth
The absolute perfect photo booth for an outer space birthday would have to be a Spaceship photo booth. I just adore this one by “Unskinny Bobby”.
It might take a few evenings to make, but it would be SO worth it. Look at how excited those kids are. It would be pretty tough trying to get them out of it!
Space Themed Party Food
7. Outer Space Birthday Cake
If your looking for an easy space birthday cake to make, then this one by “Better Than Eden” is it. How amazing does it look, and it will take you no time at all to decorate.
That is my kind of cake!
8. UFO Cupcakes
These UFO cupcakes by “Sweets Kitchen” are simply adorable. They are super easy to make and I can imagine they would be great little conversation starters.
They have to be on your ‘must make’ list for an outer space birthday party.
9. Rocket Ship Cake Pops
How about some rocket ship cake pops like these ones by “Pint Sized Baker”.
Whilst they were made for Valentine’s day, it it easy to remove the hearts and replace the pink chocolate tip with a color to match your space party.
10. Galaxy Jello
How amazing does this galaxy jello by Bakingdom look. Jello at a party is a pretty staple food item, but not like this. This would make the jello disappear even faster than it normally does.
11. Galaxy Popcorn
I am a HUGE fan of chocolate popcorn at parties. Not only do the kids love it, but you normally find the adults fighting over it too. In a good way of course!
This galaxy popcorn by “Raising Whasians” is guaranteed therefore to be a hit.

These earth cookies by “Tammilee Tips” are pretty awesome and would be perfect for an outer space birthday party.

Need a bit of healthy food at the party?
In that case these fruit rocket ships by “My Pretend Place” are perfect for you. They look great, they taste great and they will help balance out all the naughty food.
