PARTY DETAILS, as told by Amy

This was a fun space themed birthday party especially designed for my big boy who turned seven! I had so much fun using plenty of outer space elements and stars at this party. As usual, there are many fun DIYs included here. One of the most important things I would recommend people do when designing a party would be to start with choosing the colour theme; as you can see, this party was infused with green, red, blue and yellow! I painted many styrofoam balls and created a modern solar system as the main hanging decoration for the party table. Many, many stars were used (bought from Dollarama) all over the table as the sparkly add-on decorations. I also came up with many fun games for the kids, including a homemade star piñata, throwing star balls into buckets for points, and a little competition for kids to carry a big planet ball around the rocket ship.

A big thank you to my genius husband who built the rocket ship as my photo booth prop for the kids. They loved it! The party package was again designed by my favorite designer, Tania from Tania’s Design Studio. ENJOY!

I found these really cute popcorn paper buckets from Michaels and filled them with space related goodies!  I also made the felt rocket ship for kids to take home to hang on their backpacks or on the wall.


This time I made a star piñata for the kids. Piñata is always a hit at birthday parties, especially for older kids. Eventually it got thrown into the air and they had to break it apart with their hands. We also had game stations for the kids to play with – throwing star balls into the buckets for points, hitting the towers of plastic cups, and carrying a big planet ball all the way to the rocket ship and back. They had a blast!

  1. […] My son is obsessed with Rocket Ships at the moment, however he has decided on a SuperHero Party for some unknown reason. I think his sister who is not interested in rocket ships at all might have something to do with it. I love the idea of a rocket party where the kids get to blast off into space for an afternoon of discovery. Rocket Ship Party. […]
