Outer Space 5th Birthday Party (26 photos)
My little guy Blake just turned 5 and we celebrated his birthday with an outer space theme this year. I incorporated grey, orange, lime green and blue as the primary colors for the dessert table I designed for the party. Lot's of easy details you can do yourself very easily.
I designed the invitation above. Custom printables for this collection are available at my Etsy Shop (link below).
The cake was inspired by the invitation. You can easily create this cake using cookie cutters and colored fondant to create the shapes You can emboss the age on fondant using a rubber letter stamp that you can purchase at your local craft store.
The space shuttle, astronaut and planet stick candies are from Oriental Trading. I also purchased the favors there including outer space sticker set, note pads, pencils and foamy stickers. The candy are placed in plastic cylinder cups filled with silver jaw breakers.
I created custom candy bar wrappers which would work great around granola bars or any cereal bar treat instead of candy.
Sugar rocket cookies embossed with a "5" and "B" coordinate with the party invitation.
I also found the tissue paper decorations at Party City. They were very inexpensive and looked great.
I'm always looking for ways to fill larger jars with inexpensive filler. I used Trix cereal for my Space Rocks.
I made the Meteoroids by placing a candy melt on a small round pretzel and topping it with a silver sixlet candy. Just put the candy melt on the pretzel and place it in the over for couple of minutes...let it melt a bit them place the sixlet on top after you take it out of the oven. These can be flying saucers or spaceships too.
Moon Rocks are Cookie Crisp cereal. You can fill a large container for just a few dollars.
Mini water bottles with a custom alien wrapper. Straw from Shop Sweet Lulu.
