I'm not (very) ashamed to admit that I was utterly uninspired by the whole thing, so although the party was a blast for the littles, mama mostly sat around twiddling her thumbs. Here's the recap:
Since we opted for the "anti-gravity" package (aka, fling the kids on bungee harnesses) at the studio, we went with an astronaut theme. Here's the image for the invitations.
For the favors I went the way of simple & useful. I ordered these awesome astronaut books (plus some more age-appropriate books for the younger brothers of some of our guests).
Each page gives a few nuggets of great information about space and space travel. Laika!
And, because, really how could I not:
Freeze dried ice cream (better in theory, by the way, but it was fun to see the kids try to wrap their minds around it).
But really the best & most important part was that the kids ran and laughed and jumped and flew and sang and a great time was had by all.
(But if he thinks he's not getting the Pirate Party next year then he's smoking kindergarten crack).
