It’s my M.O. to get behind documenting birthdays, so here we are 2 months after the fact for George’s 4th birthday.
Better late than never.
Tom is obsessed with space so when George was little, I started collecting all the space books I could for the two of them to read together. And George has also grown to love all things space, so it was only fitting to have this as one of his themes.
It was out of this world!
My mom drew this sign. She is so talented!
I got these treat boxes on Etsy, here. I just filled them with candy (Milky Ways, Starbursts and a star whistle). While they are cute, they take forever to cut out. If my mom had not been so patient with them, Tom and I would have given up after 2 rockets. They are a beast to put together.
My sister-in-law put together these centerpieces. Aren’t they cute with George cutouts on the planets?
My sister-in-law also owns blow up planets for her classroom, so they came in handy for our decorations.
I did pretty basic on the food. I got these cookies from Hy-Vee. However, I don’t think I will do that again because they were pretty pricey. Their cakes are where they are at anyway.
As per usual, we had it in the church gym. It is so easy to do here. We had a couple activities in the gym. Daphne was just having a blast running around living her best life.
One activity was this cardboard rocket that the kids could color. I had gotten it for my niece years ago off Zulily. She gifted it down to George, so it was perfect to bring out. Unfortunately, it did not make it past the party.
I got these balloons from Wish for like a dollar, so it was a steal! I am kicking myself for not buying more than one packet because George still asks for these.
My mom made this meteor toss game. Seriously, she made it out of our trash and a little spray paint.
We decided to go all out on this party, and we got a bounce house. It was totally worth every penny. Although for the size of the thing, I really paid nothing!
I got this astronaut outfit on Amazon from Melissa and Doug. We love dress up in our house, so this has gone into our dress up box.
My mom put aluminum foil over some rain boots. It turned out just perfect! (Also my mom was the real MVP of this party.)
We had the best time celebrating our boy!
Putting together his birthdays are so much fun. He is the best.
Apparently so much fun, that we forgot a family photo…whoops!
