How to make an outer Space Cake
Outer Space Themed Birthday Party Decorations and Ideas
Here are a few creative outer space party decorating ideas:
Make paper lantern planet decorations and have them hanging from the ceiling. Glue construction paper, foam or use a marker to dress up the lanterns to look like the planets.
*If space aliens are to feature in your outer space party décor, (due to your childs request) make balloon aliens. Using a sharpie pen, draw alien faces mostly green solid colored balloons. Have them floating around looking mischievous.
*Use a black tablecloth as a base for your party table and sprinkle some silvery star shaped confetti over it so it looks like a plain night sky with twinkling stars.
Have a jar of scrunched up balls of tin foil on the party table as an accent and label them moon rocks. You can later use this in your party games by playing how many moon rocks are in the jar.
Posters of astronauts, planets and stars can also featured in your outer space theme decorations. An alternative would be to print free outer space coloring pages, color them in and hang them up.
Of course if you want to add more color in your outer space birthday party decorations, streamers are a great way to do it.
