Astronaut Party Details:

This is what Flavia said about planning the party- “My sister and I live in different countries and dream about styling a party together. She’s a graphic designer and her little astronaut printables collection was my inspiration for my son’s birthday party and a wonderful collaboration experience. It was also a fun concept for a 2-year-old boy party! To coordinate with her designs I used green, blue and silver throughout the decoration as well as a little pop of orange. I added a touch of green and silver polka dots – from the table cloth (a piece of fabric atop the always reliable white cloth) to the napkins, drinking straws and favor boxes.

The highlight or “pièce de résistance” of the fête’s décor was the solar system planets made out of paper lanterns, scraps of tissue paper and other supplies I already had at home. I moved our dining table in front of our large windows so the dark curtain panels could be the backdrop to many silver shinny stars. I also finally got to hang my adorable star paper lanterns purchased at San Francisco’s Chinatown – they went behind the food buffet.

I served tapioca puffs (biscoito polvilho) and popcorn inside ice cream cups with plastic dome lids, since they had a flying saucer quality to them that I just loved! For the sweets table I made green alien cake pops with a pistachio buttercream that was absolutely delicious and whole wheat rocket ship, stars and number 2 cookies. I also served astronaut ice cream drops and the same freeze dried fruit that astronauts take along on space missions. Outside I had a nice cold bucket filled with real juice rocket ice pops. I knew I wanted a simple but remarkable cake, and I got just that – I ordered a “green moon” crater cake and added paper cutouts using my sister’s designs. Cute aluminum boxes were available for guests to take home the delicious cake and other treats.

Adults and kids alike had fun at our “Out of this World” Photo Booth, stocked with funny props, including astronaut and alien paper masks, inflatable hugging aliens, alien sunglasses and a space helmet. Finally, for the kids’ complete bliss, we rented a rocket ship moon bounce and had a space module tent on the backyard so they could play all they wanted (burn all that sugar). And so they did!

Homemade green peppermint-scented play dough was used to create “aliens” by shaping them into little balls and adding plastic goggly eyes. The little ones loved to create their own aliens as well! As party favors, kids took home the playdough, recycled crayons, custom coloring pages and some of the hugging aliens.”
