The space party inspires young and old and can be implemented without much effort. All you need to create the right atmosphere are actually just the right colors. And then you use them for decorations, food and accessories. We would like to support you in the preparations for the space party by offering you a few suggestions, recipes and craft ideas.

Space party – the right colors

Space party for kids and adults - tips and ideas for planning

The magical effect of the combination of blue and purple is what is so special about space party decorations. Surely, you have seen a photo of a galaxy and were fascinated by the variety and combination of colors. The two colors mentioned are the basis, but feel free to add more to the decoration: black, turquoise, gray, pink or yellow and beige, but also metallic tones like silver and gold are perfectly suitable. Also, do not forget a little glitter to symbolize the stars.

And then use these colors at will for Galaxy makeup , as well as for the decoration, but also for the desserts. With food coloring, you can easily get the desired effect for the space party. Here are a few space party ideas for the food, invitation card and homemade space party decorations.

Space party invitation

The colors already mentioned should also appear in the invitation. Furthermore, stickers in the shape of stars, planets or the moon can be used to create the galactic invitation card. Here and there you can spray a little spray adhesive and add glitter. Despite the distinctive space design, do not forget to mention the motto so that all guests know what to expect. It goes without saying that the date, time and place should be noted as well.

Space party food

The snacks should not only fill you up, but also serve as decoration on the table or buffet. And the best way to achieve that is to choose galactic colors for the desserts and more specifically for toppings, creams and the like. Here are a few options that are guaranteed to be a big hit at the theme party space.

Ice cream for the space party for kids and adults.

Space party dessert - make your own ice cream in galactic colors


Whether it’s an adult party or a kid’s birthday party with a space theme, ice cream is guaranteed to go over well. And the beautiful color choice makes the ice cream even more appetizing. Just choose your favorite recipe for ice cream , which you only still color, or our suggestion. This is how the delicious ice cream is made:

  • 500 g of pastry cream (or whipped cream).
  • 225 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • any food coloring
  • optional edible glitter

Beat the cream with a mixer until stiff. Then add the condensed milk and vanilla and once again mix all the ingredients together well. Then distribute the cream into several bowls and color them in the desired colors. Then combine them in a larger baking dish. The colors should blend well into each other. Be careful not to mix them too much, though. If you want, you can sprinkle glitter on top, after which you freeze the vanilla cream for the space party.

Galactic jello for space birthday

  • Blue jello mix (or clear gelatin, any flavoring and blue food coloring).
  • Sprinkles and edible decorations in star and ball shapes, glitter, etc.

Prepare the blue jello according to package directions. If you can’t find blue Jell-O, you can use gelatin and color it yourself and flavor it. Divide the finished pudding among several glasses or small bowls, decorate with the edible decorations and place in the refrigerator to set.

Marble glaze for donuts and other pastries

Attractive icing for donuts and other pastries with glitter

  • 200 g powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 dash of vanilla paste
  • food coloring in any color
  • edible glitter to taste

Mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla paste together well. The finished icing should not be too solid, but not too runny either. If necessary, add a little more milk or powdered sugar. Divide the glaze into several bowls and color it in the colors you want. You can add glitter to some (or all) of the colors (or sprinkle glitter over the still-wet icing at the end).

Space birthday decorations and craft ideas

Wall decoration for space party with balloons in marble look

Using balloons alone, you can kill two birds with one stone: first, you can use them to implement the color theme anywhere in the room. On the other hand, they can symbolize the planets or stars, and especially if you choose round, rather than oval, models. There are also great balloons in alternative shapes like stars or else with matching motifs (planets, astronauts, rockets etc). With them you can also create great balloon garlands .

Garlands and curtains for the space party for children’s birthday party

You want to make the space party decorations yourself? Then make garlands, for example, by gluing paper stars or planets to string. In turn, hang such garlands vertically, you get a beautiful curtain that you can hang in front of a wall. By the way, tinsel is also suitable as a theme party decoration. Everything that sparkles, glitters and shines can be used for decoration.

Craft ideas for kids birthday party with motto cosmos - rockets

Decoration rocket

Especially if the party decoration space is for a child’s birthday, the rocket should not be missing. There are great templates online to print out, with which you can craft the rockets in advance, and then use them as decorations for the party. But you can also make some rockets with the kids during the party itself. Here’s an idea:

You will need:

  • Paper towel roll
  • Cardboard or tissue or crepe paper
  • Colored paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Brush
  • Acrylic paint
  • optional: glitter, paper stars, stickers etc.

Space party crafts with kids - make your own rockets out of paper

Paint the roll any color you like and make a cone out of the paper, gluing it to one of the ends of the roll. From the cardboard you can then make “legs”, which you first paint and then attach to the rocket by cutting into the roll. The craft project will be even easier if instead of legs you simply fold tissue paper lengthwise several times, tuck it into the roll and puff it up slightly.

Astronaut craft

Especially if the space birthday is celebrated with children, at some point occupations are required so that they do not get bored.  A few craft projects are a great idea then. And of course, since it’s a space party, the crafts must fit the theme. An astronaut is a great idea . How about this idea: draw a little man with a helmet on a sheet of paper and then design it with cut-out elements made of self-adhesive foam rubber.

But you can also cut out a rectangular hole from a paper plate and then use it as a mask (astronaut helmet). You can find another option in the video below.

Wall design to match the theme

Organize space party for kids birthday with galaxy as background

If you want to highlight the wall behind the buffet or create a photo wall in front of which everyone can take pictures, you can transform a white sheet for this purpose. Whether you use textile or acrylic paint for this is up to you. Dilute the colors sufficiently well, so that they can then be given to the sheet in patches and create even transitions.

Suggestion for a star wars party with black sheets and stars as a background

Finally, you can add splashes of white or light yellow for stars using a brush. You do not need to thin the paint for this. You can also paint planets, the moon or other cosmic elements like shooting stars. Alternatively, you can use a black or dark blue sheet and some neon colors that glow in the dark.

Minimalist and monochrome in black and white.

While we said that blue and purple are the main colors, that doesn’t mean you can’t use your own interpretations of outer space for the space party decorations, of course. This black and white idea, for example, looks very elegant and attractive and is suitable for both a space party for kids and a galactic party for adults.

Celebrate galactic birthdays with “Two the Moon” parties

Theme party idea and sayings for second birthday and with puns

With word games you can make the theme, decoration or cake even more interesting and original. Especially the Two-the-Moon birthday party, which is a popular choice for the 2nd birthday of children, can be implemented in this way. Here, the English word “to” is replaced by “two”. Since both words sound the same, a funny play on words is created in this way. Or how about this:

  • You are not of this world!
  • Love youtwothe Moon and back (I/we love you to the moon and back)
  • You are simply galactic!
  • You are my/our universe!
