The day before the party, I took my son to Denny’s for his birthday breakfast, and to buy 10 of these 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.
Trenton helped me make this photo op. We spray painted a huge box from IKEA, and cut out a hole for their heads. The boys had fun taking pictures, and with a little Photoshop (I actually use Paint Shop Pro), I turned their pictures into this…
For decorations at the party, I got a few star-shaped Mylar helium balloons. I also found these space cut outs at the dollar store.
I added glitter and suspended them from the railing with fishing line. 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, until I realized that the back side of the tablecloth was silver. It gave a colorful but spacey feel to the party.
