Space Theme Party
That Will Launch Your Guests
"Out Of This World" 

Space theme party ideas create a whole different atmosphere.  They are a great opportunity to explore the universe and all the wonders and marvels it holds. 



Space Shuttle




Use some of the following wording in your invitation:

  • launch
  • out of this world
  • lift-off
  • mother ship
  • blast off
  • beam
  • space station
  • cosmic

You can also use alien language (wingdings font) with the translation.


There are a lot of fun ideas and possibilities you can use to bring about the look and feel of your space theme party.

You can begin by putting black blankets or plastic over the windows to make the room dark.  Next you can string white lights across the ceiling to look like stars.  Then fill in the room with some of these decorating ideas:

  • create planets and hang them from the ceiling

  • create flying saucers from two paper plates and suspend from ceiling

  • hang up silver and white balloons around the room.  You can even place a glow-in-the-dark stick inside the balloons for a cool effect

  • spray paint silver "moon rocks"

  • use black lighting or green lightbulbs to help set the stage

  • purchase some glow-in-the-dark paint and create some awesome effects around the room 


Glow-in-the-dark stars

Glitter pens


  • milky way
  • mars
  • starburst
  • rocket pops
  • pop rocks


Space Shuttle

Solar System





Have the guests come dressed as the following:

  • martian
  • astronaut
  • robot
  • rocket
  • planet, moon or star
  • star wars / star trek character

Pin the Hat on the Martian
Create a picture of a large martian on a piece of poster board.  Then create the hat on paper and cut out.

Have the guests make their own spaceship to take home.  You can use foil, empty cans, toilet paper tubes, glitter markers, stickers, etc.

Moon Rocks
Have each guest paint their own "moon rock" to take home as part of their favor.

Flying Saucers
Have each guest make a flying saucer with two paper plates.  They can decorate them with stickers, markers, crayons, glitter, etc.



A great way to bring about your party ideas into your menu is to change the look or wording of the food items being served.

  • Alien juice - add green food coloring to your drink

  • Saturn fruit salad - melon cut into rings

  • Moon rocks - cake pops without the sticks with grey/silver icing

  • Star sandwiches - use a cookie cutter to cut out the sandwiches in a star shape
