For the centerpiece of the table, I simply balanced The Milano on top of a wide candlestick. It gave it the height it needed to be a fantastic centerpiece without taking away anything from it. I also added star confetti to the table below the centerpiece to give it a little something extra.
Since we have two little kids, almost every time we throw a party there are kids involved. I like to come with some activities that the kids can do to keep busy and have fun while the grown ups are talking or watching a movie together.
For this party we had three different activities for the kids, popsicle stick stars, galaxy themed play-dough and constellation flashlights.
The Popsicle sticks stars are fun and perfect for any age, for the younger kids they can decorate the sticks and a grown up can glue them together correctly or for the older kids they can put them together themselves. I prefer using hot glue to put them together because then there is no drying time, but it also needs closer supervision.
Galaxy dough is simply play dough made with black food coloring sprinkled liberally with purple and silver glitter. The kids absolutely love playing with the “Sky Dough” and they can help make it themselves. I pulled out a bunch of cookie cutters and they played with the play dough for a long time after it was made.
With every party, I love dressing my girls up to match the theme. It adds a little something extra and so far they have loved doing it. This time we went with Rocket Raccoon for my older daughter and I made a simple shirt using heat transfer for the baby that says I Am Groot, because we all know that dancing Baby Groot stole the whole movie. My older daughter loved being Rocket Raccoon, she couldn’t get enough of her tail!
