This is what Emily said about planning the party- “I had so much fun styling this bright and beautiful science-themed party for a sweet (and smart!) seven-year-old girl.

I designed her name banner to resemble elements of the periodic table. The significance of the “7” is that it’s her seventh birthday! The significance of each “element”? I have no idea. I am your stereotypical English major, I’m afraid. The backdrop is a sheet of foamcore covered with aqua fabric (I bought a sheet set specifically for this party–it was actually less expensive than buying yardage of aqua fabric, and I thought it would look better than painting the foamcore). The lettering is Cricut’s “Short Stuff” font from the Extreme Fonts cartridge, and I cut the big Erlenmeyer flask freehand, with one-inch and one-half-inch hole punch “bubbles.”

We went with simple orange- and aqua-frosted cupakes, with a special fondant sculpture inspired by the birthday girl. The cupcakes and fondant work are by the talented ladies at Nashville Sweets.

The rest of the dessert table was chemically inspired. Molecular gum, crystallized sucrose (rock candy), potential energy pellets (Nerds and Jelly Bellies) and (not pictured) atomic chocolate (blue sixlets). I filled labware and other science-y shaped glass bottles with colored water just for a little extra color.

I made an “atomic” mobile over the kids’ eating area out of simple spray-painted Dollar Tree hula hoops, zip ties, and balloons! Each place setting had a pair of goggles, and in the middle of the table were some foam letters, stickers and jewels, with instructions to customize them.

I created a little photo booth for the guests/”future scientists,” with another backdrop, a lab coat, some wacky oversize glasses, test tubes filled with colored water, and the hosts’ own fabulous vintage chair, which was conveniently within our color scheme. I also made a “molecular model” number seven, in honor of the birthday girl, out of dowels and paper lanterns.

The guests were entertained by Nashville-based Mr Bond. the Science Guy, and each little scientist took home their goggles and a test tube full of candy from the dessert table”.

    I’m using a laboratory theme in my classroom. I’m loving your ideas. I would love to hang an atom over each table to color-code table groups, but cannot figure out how to construct the rings. Can you help, or do you sell the pieces?

      Julie, I’m so sorry, I just now saw this! I used dollar store hula hoops, kind of shoving them together until I liked their position, and I fastened them together with zip ties. Then, I spraypainted them (hoops and zip ties) all one color. I hung little clusters of balloons (but I would use something more permanent, like foam balls) from the top center with fishing line.
