Space Favors & Fun

rocket cup party favors

Here are the remainder of the fun ideas we used for my son’s Stellar Space-Themed/Rocket birthday party.

The day before the party, I took my son to Denny’s for his birthday breakfast, and to buy 10 of these cool rocket cups. After searching around on-line, I knew these would make the best favors, and the waitress was great about it, letting me pick the colors I wanted and everything. I filled each rocket cup with “pop rocks,” “milky way miniatures,” and “starburst” candies. No, I can’t get away from the theme. And why would I want to?

My son had fun helping me make this photo op. We spray painted a huge box left over from some IKEA furniture, and cut out a hole for their heads. I used sharpie and acrylic paint to add all of the rocket details.

The boys had fun taking pictures during the party, and with a little Photoshop magic (I actually use Paint Shop Pro), I turned their pictures into this… They made good thank you’s to send after the party.

I don’t have many pictures of the decorations, but will share the space-themed ideas I used anyway. I got a few star-shaped Mylar helium balloons in silver. I also found these rocket ship cut-outs at the dollar store.

I added glitter and suspended them from the railing with fishing line, so that they could be floating mid-launch. I got metallic red and blue tablecloths on clearance after the 4th of July. There was one with a pattern that I didn’t think would work for this party, until I realized that the back side of the tablecloth was silver foil (see the picture of the favors above). It gave a great spacey feel to the party.

For all of the intergalactic party details, make sure and head back to this post.

  5. Just wondering where you got the rocket cups?? Very cute…

    • They were the speciality cup at Denny’s at the time, but it has been many years, so I doubt they are still there. But if you are determined enough, I’m sure you could find something similar on the internet somewhere.
