Here is a quick and final post on Bear's rocket party. See these previous posts for food, activities & invitations.
Rocket party favours - idea from here
were filled with a mars bar, a milky way, an astronaut cheese stick (ALDI), she glow in the dark stars, a rocket balloon and some UFO lollies (strawberries & cream lollies).
We decorated the shed (mainly because we needed to hide the junk filling the shelves) with black plastic and stars, along with a few star garlands and some planets. You might recognise the 'planets' from Goose's Japanese party earlier in the year and the stars on the plastic came from our Frog's dress-up/movie star party last November. It pays to hang on to things sometimes! After the kids covered the stars (purchased at Coles!) in glitter I made the star garlands by sewing them together, just like these as I really couldn't be bothered sticking them all on individually!
I love this photo of Bear taken on the day with his new superhero outfit (handmade by a very clever friend of mine!) To be honest I think he is squinting from the sun, but I like to think he's saying - great party Mum, thanks!
And now, the party lives on with now empty pringle rockets and space pyjamas (thanks Granny!) and there'll be space poker on Friday night in the shed.*
I was really excited today to receive and email letting me know that Bear's rocket party had been featured as Party of the Day on the homepage of the blog 'Catch my Party'. This blog is a great resource for DIY party ideas and a place where you can share your own parties also.

* to put the 'poker' comment in context you'll need to read these posts.
