Out of this world birthday

So Paxton's birthday is next Tuesday but we are having his party on Sunday. Even though it is much more low key this year I still wanted to go with a theme. Anyone who knows Paxton knows how crazy over the planets he is. He knows those planets better than anything. He can tell you which planet is the hottest, which one is the biggest, which one is the farthest away from the sun, anything. So since I really only have a small window of time to do "themed" birthday parties I figured I would go with a space theme this year. We are going to Paxton's gymnastics studio for the party and I just keep thinking to myself, "while they are jumping on the trampoline, they can be pretending they are jumping on the moon"! I'm not doing too much in terms of decorations this year but I thought I would put together what I have used as inspiration for his party.

This is the design for his invitation. I bought it off of etsy. You can find it here.

These are the decorations I would have used if we were doing the party at my house. But since we only have an hour in the party room I figured we didn't need to go crazy on decorations this year. But if you like them, you can find them here.

Paxton's cake inspirations:

I just love everything about this space themed birthday party.

and I will be making these for snacks.

A little present for Paxton. Some new artwork for his bedroom. Which, by the way, has no theme at all.

You can find this print on Etsy here.

So that's where all my inspiration came from. Hope you like it. More importantly, I hope Paxton likes it!
