Blast off!

I know that lots of our customers, fans & followers are organising rocket and space themed parties so thought I would share some ideas I've come across

These 'rocket dogs' made from dough wrapped hot dogs look fab!


Rocket shaped fruit kebabs - either make them up in advance or this could be a fun party activity, either have the fruit pre-cut for younger children then help them create their own fruit rocket or for older children let them cut out their own shapes using mini cookie cutters.

And maybe for when the weather is a bit warmer! ... Popsicle Blasta's


And to drink ... Rocket Fuel of course! Great served in these red star mini milk bottles with star design paper straws (bottles & straws both available from Pixie Party Supplies)


And here's some great cake ideas

Start saving all your soft drink bottles to make these jet packs! You could use this as a party activity as well and get the kids to decorate them. You can find the tutorial and some other fun rocket party ideas here:


And how about making some confetti popper rockets - looks like lots of fun! The tutorial can be found at


An art table could be a fun idea for this theme - my daughter has been busy learning about space & planets at day care recently and has just brought home lots of fun creations which might give you some ideas of things you could pop on the art table - black paper (or card & black paint) for the sky, glitter/stickers/star shaped confetti for the stars, bottle tops & foil to make planets, tubes to make rockets and tape/paper/ribbon etc to decorate and I love the yellow & red feathers they've used, and the sun has been made from cupcake cases which gives a great effect.

 Make a rocket ship to take some cute party pics. You could also make it up before the party and take photos of the birthday boy/girl to use as the invitations or send the photos after the party as the thank yous.


A few cute ideas for packaging party favours

And here are some of the rocket and space themed party products available at Pixie Party Supplies
