Out of this world!

Well hello there! Phew! It has been a hectic few weeks, with plenty of end-of school-year activities taking up time, and one birthday celebration after another! Just this week we celebrated our youngest's fifth birthday. And this time we picked a theme...We opted for all things outer space...rockets, planets and of course aliens! It goes without saying that I spent quite a bit of time on Pinterest, searching for a little inspiration that is 'out of this world'! And I was not disappointed! After a little planning, and a lot of baking, our little guests arrived, and we had a wonderful time! Here are a few space alien party snaps!

Space themed food labels...

Alien paper cups for drinks...or 'rocket fuel' as we called it!

'Martian Mallows'...Marshmallows dipped in coloured white chocolate, and decorated with sprinkles and sweets.

And Pinterest inspired, slightly adapted planetary cupcakes... 

And the birthday cake of course...I saw this idea on Pinterest, and I fell in love with it straight away, as it's inspired by one of our favourite books too!

And so our little one is another year older, and I would hope to think that he will always remember is 5th birthday! Well, one thing is for sure...I will NEVER forget his big smile when he walked in from school to see the table decorated, alien balloons up, and the way he excitedly greeted all his little friends! THAT smile was worth it!
