Pink Space Themed Party: “I love you to the moon and back” themed star and space party with pink, and iridescent celestial accents.
I worked with Cricut to create all the party decor for this beautiful space themed party. I love stars, so I used lots of them in the decor. And, just to put my own spin on the space theme, it’s a pink space themed party! We created the “I love you to the moon and back” banner, star table scatter, cupcake pics, customized juice bottles, and stardust party favours all using our Cricut Maker machine.
The colour scheme for the party was pink, iridescent, white and gold. I had so much fun adding all the pretty pink details. I think this party would be perfect for a girls birthday, or even a baby shower theme.
The Space Themed Backdrop
I started out with the fun “I love you to the moon and back” banner, which I created on my Cricut Maker. It set the stage for the whole theme. You can find the cut file here. I cut it with gold glitter card stock, and hung it with some thread.
Along with the pretty banner, I also added in some star balloons from the party store. The balloons are in our themed colours pink, white, gold and iridescent.
Instead of flowers for this party, I added in some pampas grass for a fun boho touch. The grasses are in some vintage demi John bottles.
The Pink Space Party Themed Food Table
It’s always nice to have some themed snacks and treats. I made some food tent labels for the food on using my Cricut so everyone would know exactly what everything was. The food tent labels are so easy to make on the Cricut Maker, because it writes, scores, and cuts the cards all at once. You can find my cut file here to create your own, and modify the food names right inside Cricut Design Space.
Galaxy Chocolate Bark
The galaxy chocolate bark is so easy to make. Just melt some white chocolate and pink chocolate. Pour it out onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper, and while the chocolate is still melted run a knife through it to create the marble effect. Next, add sprinkles, including star sprinkles. My favourite addition was to finish it off with some edible glitter. I used iridescent and gold glitter to finish off our galaxy chocolate bark. Once it’s set, break it into pieces and enjoy.
To serve the pink lemonade, I used some up cycled juice bottles and gave them a little Cricut makeover. This was one of my favourite projects for the party.
I used iridescent removable vinyl to create the stars -find the cut file here. Cut out a sheet of the removable vinyl on the Cricut Maker. To add the stars for the party just peel them off the vinyl backing and stick them to the outside of the bottles, and then you can remove them after the party. I love the iridescent vinyl, and it adds such a fun space-y effect.
We also used some iridescent straws to match. I cut out some small stars from glitter card stock and used a little hot glue to attach them to the straws. They matched our theme perfectly.
Star Sugar Cookies
I used my favourite sugar cookie recipe -the one my Grandma used to make and cut them out in star shapes for our space themed party.
To create the marble effect I used a really simple and fun icing technique. Make a really runny icing with icing sugar, milk, and a little vanilla. Remove about a 1/4 cup and use pink food colouring to make it dark pink. To create the marble, add a few spoons of pink to the white icing and use a knife to marble it, then dip in the cookie. Let set before serving. This is really quick to make and creates such a cool effect.
Popcorn is always a fun addition to a party. I used some pretty iridescent paper cups to create single servings, perfect for a get together.
We had simple vanilla cupcakes and created beautiful cupcake toppers using the Cricut. I cut out glitter card stock in iridescent, pink, and gold, and also metallic gold card stock. Some of the stars from this cut file I used on the cupcakes, along with a gold moon. After cutting them out, I used hot glue to attach them to wood stir sticks. They were a really fun addition to plain cupcakes.
On the food table I used some star table scatter that I also made on the Cricut. Using this star cut file, I added some of the stars to the table and used some as the cupcake toppers.
The Star Tablescape
I thought it would be fun to do a coffee table boho picnic tablescape for this party. This would work for kids or adults. I started out with the table and used lots of comfy sheepskins and pillows around it for seating. I used some white tulle as a table covering. It reminded me of the Milky Way and added that cool dreamy feel to the table.
We had some cute star plates that were perfect for the theme. The iridescent champagne flutes worked great for this table too.
I made the placards, using the same Cricut cut file here, that I used for the food labels.
You can edit the names in Cricut Design Space for your own party. I really love how easy these were to create, since the Cricut can write, score, and cut them out all at once.
I also used more of the star table scatter here that I made from the glitter card stock. As a centre piece on the table I used a collection of pretty iridescent candles that worked perfectly for them, and some star mini lights. I thought the mirrored ball was a fun space-y addition too.
Another favourite project for this party were the little star dust bottles. They were a cute addition to the table and made a great little party favour for guests to take home.
To make them you need:
- Cricut card stock
- mini glass bottles
- Cricut marker
- pink ribbon
- Cricut Maker
- star charm
- Cricut cutting mat
- iridescent glitter
- glue (optional)
How To Make a Star Dust Bottle
Start by creating the star dust labels using this cut file in Cricut design space.
Add your card stock to the cutting mat, and load the mat into the Cricut. Select medium card stock as your material, and add the fine marker to the first clamp, as prompted in Cricut Design Space, then hit cut. Once the tag is all finished being written and cut out, remove the cutting mat from the Cricut machine.
To remove the tag from the cutting mat, gently bend the cutting mat slightly,and peel the card stock from it.
Fill each glass bottle with iridescent glitter. As an option, you might want to glue the lid onto the bottles after the glitter is added to avoid any messes.
Use the pink ribbon to tie on the star dust label, and a small star charm.
This party was so much fun to create, and couldn’t be cuter! We made so many great projects for the party with the Cricut. It was a great way to customize and co-ordinate all our party details.
With a pink space themed party like this one, life really is a party!
