JR is one special little guy, and for his third birthday Kim planned for him an astronaut themed party (utilizing an orange and blue color scheme). When JR was born, his grandparents, who are friends with THE Buzz Aldrin, were able to give JR an autographed photo from Buzz that reads “Welcome to this World.” PRICELESS!
With Kim’s theme in mind, we designed space ship and star labels as well as labels with JR's initials that she printed on sticker paper to give to each child as they arrived at the party.
We also created for the food stations "space shuttle" tent cards. Wood fired pizza was the main course; however Kim kept it healthy with "Vegetable Venus" (veggies and squash).
Kim had Society Bakery make nine “planet” cakes, each representing a planet in our solar system. Can you say a cake for every season, er....planet!
One of my favorite features at JR’s party were three alien head centerpieces, custom made by Junior from the Garden Gate.
Here is a picture of the hostess with the mostess herself, Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, preparing to serve the little space kadets astronaut ice cream. (Always my favorite thing to buy during visits to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, but I digress.)
Check out JR in costume; however not just any costume. His costume is an exact replica of what Buzz and Neil Armstrong wore when they landed on the moon.
Kids need a place to romp around, especially three year olds! Kim filled her backyard with "space" tents and inflatables.
As each guest left the party, they were given a popcorn party favor. Kim attached to each favor our luggage tags, which we personalized for each child.
Kim, you are out of this world! You can plan my birthday party any time! Thank you for letting us share with our readers photographs from JR's special day. It looks like everyone had a BLAST!!
