Yesterday we celebrated Alex and Elijah’s 4th birthday with a Blast Off Space party for them, friends and family joined us for a fun filled afternoon at Davey and Claire’s house. The boys were blessed by so many with wonderful gifts and birthday wishes. Our theme was inspired by two cool little astronaut suits that Dave bought the boys on our Christmas time trip to the Natural Science and History museum in New York city and what a blast we all had at their party! The invitation, cake, party favors and banner were just too cute for our space cadets who wore their astronaut suits! I created all of these party printables with Kate Hadfield’s kit “Blast Off” which was simply perfect.
Here is the cake which was inspired by our invitation, it was made by Miss Penny who made all of their birthday cakes since their first! She is so talented and surprises us with each cake we order! We were so tickled that she could recreate Kate Hadfield’s little rocket from her Blast Off kit into the cake design~
Here are the treat favor bags we made for their friends and cousins who attended the party. Claire cut out a lot of little rockets for the treat bags and they really set off the theme for the party!
Included in each favor bag was a space themed sucker, a little styro foam space shuttle glider and delicious fruit snacks and Nerds.The boys love these veggie straws so we included them in the party favor bags with twin astronauts on the gift tag.
Little astronauts need to stay hydrated while they’re playing at the birthday party, I created this little Happy Birthday label to go around the bottle. The party colors were bright and cheerful! Our space shuttle pinata was a big hit at the party!
I created a little banner for the birthday boys using Kate’s Blast Off kit elements and some string. It really set off the cake table area!
We had two very happy astronauts blowing out candles at the party! More party pictures to coming this week!!
