Rockets & Robots Space Party

Louise S By Louise S  in Birthday


Party Recap

Send your little boy shooting into the stars with this vintage-inspired Rockets and Robots space-themed party. We created this party theme for my little boy, Thomas – he was turning two!
For the Party Table decor we used mainly blue and orange. The decor consisted of honeycomb paper balls or “planets”, home-made rockets, spaceship and robot masks, rocket favors and of course the space rocket cake.
We created this space theme by using our designs from our latest Sunshine Parties printable set. All digital design elements can be printed on a home PC printer and handmade. This makes the party unique and still affordable and best of all it doesn’t take that long! With a little thought this party can look out of this world and your little boy will be over the moon! Excuse the pun!

Thinking of rockets and Robots food items was so much fun! We used Robot Cake pops or Robopops, they were delicious – full of red velvet cake, Hirshey kisses with customised stickers, flying saucer sweets, cupcakes, and most importantly a spaceship cake! All the food was a hit!

We set up the party at our local party venue Akimbo which is based in Durban, South Africa. (
