No wonder a galaxy theme is such a hot trend for children’s birthday parties. It has so many pluses going for it! It incorporates the magical blues and purples of a starry night sky in everything from decorations to desserts. It brings in cool artistic effects like marbling and watercolor. It can even have a fun science spin if you’re looking for something educational. Plus, it’s something both boys and girls will get a blast out of! So come zoom into outer space with us, as we present these amazing galaxy-themed birthday party ideas we found.
Party Decorations & Favors for a Galaxy Theme
Get guests ready to “blast off” at your fun-filled party with a themed yard sign (1) waiting to welcome them. Then, set the galactic scene indoors with a dessert table backdrop (6) featuring multi-colored planets and stars, matching an amazing rocketship cake and blue-frosted cupcakes. Echo this same look in a photo booth backdrop (4) with hanging “planet” lanterns and gilded stars.
For a party activity, have the kiddie guests make DIY “galaxy bottles” (5) using acrylic paint, cotton balls and glitter! Then, for favors, surprise them with sprinkles-topped “jello in a jar” (2) and mini buckets of space cutouts and stickers (3).
Galaxy-inspired Party Treats and Sweets
The kiddos will go crazy over these “spacey” sweets! Check out these desserts and confections with that outer space look—from swirls of celestial colors to a sprinkling of stars!
Serve homemade ice cream (1) that’s made even more heavenly in marbled colors. Then, assemble an out-of-this-world dessert display, featuring galaxy donuts sprinkled with edible glitter (2), galaxy cupcakes with tiny sugar stars (3), and galaxy cake pops (4). With even more treats to take home, like space bark (5) made from candy melts and glitter galaxy lollipops (6)!
The little guests will probably be zipping around like rocketships from all this sugar. But it’s a galaxy party theme, after all!
