Baby Shower Outer Space Ideas
So are you now ready to plan for your outer space baby shower? Here are some essential things you’ll need.
Outer space baby shower invitations
There are lots of creative ways to make an outer space baby shower invitation. From making your own, personalized invitations to availing the ready-made ones, you’re sure to make your guests feel extra special with an invitation that matches the theme of your party. Here are some ideas on how to do your invitations:
Do-it-yourself invitations are ideal for parents who want to personally prepare for their party. This idea is great if you’re planning for an intimate baby shower of 10 or fewer people.
All you need to do is to visit your nearest arts and crafts store. From there, you can buy a variety of specialty papers, pens, envelops and some adorable decorations that match your theme. You can also order your materials online for your convenience.
For the busy parents, ready-made invitations can also be considered. You can simply order some outer space baby shower invitations, fill in the necessary information, and send them to your guests. You may also find businesses that offer customized invitations for a baby girl or a baby boy. With customized invitations, you can simply leave the designing and printing to the artists and dedicate your precious time to the other aspects of your baby shower.
Sending your invitations through the internet is a great idea in cutting down your expenses on invitations so that you spare the amount for more important things like food and venue. If you’re inviting close family and friends to a casual baby shower, sending it via email is great. It can also be useful in inviting your relatives who are coming from far regions.
Outer space baby shower centerpieces
Your table set-up will be the center of attention at the party. When planning for your centerpieces, make sure that every detail matches your theme and of course, the gender of your baby. Your centerpieces may include planets, moon, stars, rockets and astronauts.
Since many of them are associated with baby boys, you can alter their color to make them more feminine for your baby girl. One idea is to change the color of the planets or the astronaut suits to pink. This way, you’ll achieve a girly set-up without going beyond your theme.
Outer space baby shower cake
Your cake will highlight the food for your baby shower. Give yourself some time to contact your local bakeshops and inquire about their customized cakes on the outer space theme. You may also search for bakers who offer personalized cakes. This way, you can select your own cake toppers and colors to match your party table.
Outer space baby shower backdrop
Level up everyone’s outer space experience with a nice backdrop. You can include cut-outs of planets and rockets, mimic the look of the Milky Way, and even include the name or the initials of your baby boy or baby girl.
Outer space baby shower decorations
If you want, you can add some DIY outer space party decorations to make the venue appear livelier. When decorating, it is wiser to select items that you can still reuse once your baby arrives.
Using baby items to decorate your venue is perfect in adding a youthful touch to your outer space theme. It’s also one way to unleash your creativity. For example, you can decorate sealed baby bottles to form tiny rockets or hang some baby clothes that have rockets or star designs. This way, you’ll achieve a unique baby set-up and still make use of your decorations later on.
Outer space baby shower games
Game time is among the most anticipated events in a baby shower. You can either plan for games or some crafty activities that your guests will enjoy.
To stick with your outer space theme, why not try making a rocket time capsule? With this activity, you’ll need to inform your guests beforehand to bring a memorable object that would remind their presence in your baby shower. If you’re going to have a baby girl, it is also sweet to request your guests to write a special letter for your baby’s 18th birthday. Keep this rocket time capsule and give it to your child once he or she is an adult and it will surely be cherished.
Another great activity for your baby shower is decorating the baby’s spacesuit. Here, all you need is to prepare baby bodysuits of varying sizes and some fabric paints for your guests. Give your guests some time to include their own designs on the bodysuits and hang them dry. The guest with the most artistic bodysuit wins.
Outer space baby shower party favors
Party favors are a way to thank your guests for celebrating the baby shower with you. Useful household items like candles, customized bar soaps and liquid hand washing soaps can creatively be tagged and packaged to be given to guests. If you’re celebrating with your co-workers, pens and office supplies can also be packed into some nice party favors.
