Space party
Our space party is out of this world! Get ready for blast off with an adventurous space party.

Its a great theme for all ages and stages and is deceptively easy to put together.


  • Set the tone for your party with an exciting invite.
  • Make your own using photographs of the solar system or download ours from 

Colour palette

  • Keep your colour palette fairly bright and basic like we did with red and blue star patterned tablecloths.
  • Match this up with cups and plates that suit the theme.
  • You will be able to find these at supermarkets or at party stores.
  • We managed to find a great set of 3D paper plates.
  • Top this all off with some fun space-themed décor- rocket ships, robots, planets, aliens; the different options are endless.


  • For the food, focus on bite-sized goodies that could be "mistaken" for meteorites, stars, planets or even star dust.
  • For example, mini meringues could be moon rocks, caramel popcorn could be meteorites and vanilla iced cupcakes topped with astros and edible glitter could form part of the milky way.
  • You could also make star-shaped sandwiches using a cookie cutter.
  • Let your imagination soar to new heights- the limits are the end of the universe.


  • Go for a cake that's out of this world.
  • You can make a basic rocket ship by shaping sponge cake and icing it appropriately or even use our awesome space cake as inspiration.

Costume, activities, party favours

  • Take your space party to new heights by turning it into a costume party.
  • Little ones love fancy dress and it's quite easy to get hold of an astronaut or alien costume.
  • Creat an arts and crafts corner where your young space explorers can make their own alien mask.
  • You can provide a photocopied face mask and some crayons.
  • Decorate them with pipecleaners and glitter for extra effect.
  • Pack an assortment of sweets and a juice into a box for your party favour and include a small toy to remind guests of their out-in-space experience, such as modelling clay or glow in the dark stickers or stars.
