Astronaut Training Party

As you know I LOVE a great and unique invite and party. Well, this party over at Life Frosting has it all! I know it is so easy to do an online invite...nothing is wrong with it but remember an invitation sets the tone for your entire event. Make it special and creative. I LOVE this invitation so MUCH!!!! Chelsea created boxed, love, love! The boxes she got courtesy of USPS priority! :)

Included in the boxed invitation was their official uniform which she used printable iron-ons. I love these. You can get iron on transfer paper from any craft store, print your design on to it, and iron on to items. I use it all the time ~ it customizes your party. The invitees also got a little "preflight energy food" (starbursts).

Got to love iron on transfer paper!! Use the weekly Michael's, JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby coupons to get them for around $5!

Keeping the food simple but unique by adding the labels on top of prepackaged food and water bottles. Chelsea also served Planet Pizza!

OKAY......HERE IS WHERE I JUST FELL OVER....not really because I'm laying in's 1:40 am people... however, check this cake out!!

A moon cake suspended in the air!!! This is the most creative cake idea I've seen to date! I really love this!

Loving the rocket cookies centerpieces as well...which also doubled as take home favors!

You know these boys loved this!

Their favors included moon sand, Astronaut ice cream, space ship cookie, bottled water in a personalized tote bag.

Complete with a certificate of completion of astronaut training. To see what the boys "training" was go to Chelsea's blog here. What an amazing party and such a treat to look at.
