{Current Projects} Greyson’s Rocket 5th Birthday Party

{Rockets & Aliens}
Well it is over and it was so much fun!  Greyson blasted into his 5th year just like he wanted!  

I just adore this shirt…it brought my ideas to life!
This year he fell in love with these guys…

How could you not {I fell in love with them several years ago}!
We waited up to see the movie on opening night just so he could be the first to see it.
He laughed, smiled and thought it was wonderful…{I cried the entire movie}.

    So cute! I have a Greyson too, and we also did a rocket party for his this year! What a neat coincidence!

    My son is OBSESSED with Buzz & has been talking about his Buzz party for months! This was just the inspiration I was looking for! Where did you find the comics for the invitations? Great job on interpreting this theme!

  5. Southern Belle's Charm says

    @Jenny: the comics for the invitations were at Michael's in the reading materials. I bought several books. Thanks for your sweet compliments!

    Hi.. I LOVE your party and I'm working on a similar theme for my 4yr old.. Where did you get the big "green alien"? I've looked high and low and can only find very expensive ones… any ideas?

  7. Southern Belle's Charm says

    @GummyMommy: The "Alien" is from any local toy store in the Toy Story section. My son wanted it so he had to wait to play with it until his party was over. It was torture for him. :)

    I love this party theme! For the aliens did you use a dust mop?? And if so where in the world can I find some like that I've looked everywhere???? Thank you soo much! GREAT JOB!!

    I love all the creative ideas…so inspiring! Where did you find the paper to make the invitations and how did you do the cut out of the rockets? Any information you can give on how you did the invites would greatly be appreciated! Thanks :)

    A wonderful memory for a lifetime! Must know about the glitter rocket cut outs? Did you make them yourself or buy them?
