Rocket Party

3 2 1 Blast OFF!

My youngest son Alec turned 4, and what better way to

celebrate than to throw a Retro Rocket Party with a real rocket launch!

The birthday BOY and guests enjoyed the launch pad also known as bounce houses,

ton’s of treats, goody bag favors and fun!

The party is not complete without Space Blasters and Shooting Stars!

The adorable chocolate stars were custom made by Irene at Fifi LaRue Chocolates

Custom Rocket Crayon’s were made by Posh Paper Creations

My son is a big lover of Juicy Fruit Gum and most kids love their own personal pack.

I worked it into the party by calling it Rocket Repair Putty, AKA Juicy Fruit Gum.

It was a hit with the kids.

The cake was designed to be simple, but really yummy!

The cake banner was designed to fit with the theme, with a classic clean look.

Andrea from Bubblewrappd also made this super cute rocket fuel sign.

I attached a rope to the back and hung it with jumbo clothespins from Michael’s Craft Store.

It was a great addition to the wagon filled with drinks.

After all the bouncing, the kids needed to fuel up.

To make the party seem more industrial, I choose galvanized buckets

and stuck some large white numbers on them ( 3 2 1 ).

I used WORD and printed a large number with just the outline on full size label paper.

Then I cut out with scissors the number so the border didn’t show.

After the number’s were cut out, I bent on the score line and stuck to the bucket.

Easier than paint in my opinion.

Bucket’s were found at Home Depot.

Red licorice “Rocket Flames” was used primarily to hold my chalk board upright, but

it also added a fun snack for the kids too!

Rocket Goody Bag Tags tied with aqua and white stripe twine were secured to bright red treat bags.

I wanted the treats to be part of the decor, so I left the bags out so guests can fill them up.

Asteroids that light up! I found them at Walmart and was so excited.

The kids loved them.

The fun metal locker bins, were purchased at Target. The colors were an exact match.

We also get to use them in the boys bedroom for storage.

I love the metal mixed with wood for a rocket party!

Fun serving trays were great for the kids. I used foil to stick with the theme,

and burlap went great with the hay backdrop.

Empty soup cans with jute string fit cutlery and striped straws wonderfully.

I found this great chalkboard to use as a Menu Board.

I am now addicted to chalkboard markers. SO FUN!!!

Rocket dogs and Space Burgers were served in these super fun metal locker crates found at Target.

I found these super cool retro foil wrappers from Pink Lemonade Party.

Space Burgers are missing from the photo.

My husband said they would be cold by the time he wrapped them all up in their fun retro wrapper.

BooHoo…it didn’t get done for the party, but it was better to have hot off the grill space burgers.

Next time, I’ll have a helper to help him wrap. (smile)

I filled them with Kettle Corn, the kids gobbled it all up!

We had the party in our empty hay barn since there was a good chance of rain.

It made for a fun space for the kids to run and play.

Towards the end of the party we had a Rocket Launch out in the mint field.

The boys were all over this.
