Space theme

Space, rocket, astronauts and aliens will always be popular with little men and there is a lot available for this party theme to make it easy for your party planning!

Traditional colours of blue, green, red and yellow feature commonly with this theme along with silver. You could incorporate stars into your decor as well as lanterns for an easy ‘planet’ look .

You may choose to focus on only one area of the “space” theme for the party, such as Rockets if that is what your little one is obsessed with! Or go for a full space scene incorporating aliens and astronauts.

I hope this blog post provides you some ideas and inspiration for this Space theme!
