Looking to throw an out-of-this-world party? Well, then you should consider galaxy theme party ideas by adding a celestial theme to your next get-together. Check out our compilation of décor, activities, menu items, and party favor ideas that include all things star, sky, and space-related to help your planet.
Galaxy Theme Party Ideas: Décor
1. Sky Glow
Break glow sticks and shake the liquid onto a black cloth. Cover the ceiling with the cloth once it dries and allow the sky to glow like a galaxy. You could even add glitter or sparkles to really make the decoration twinkle. You can also find some supplies here.
2. Shiny Stars
3. Celestial Lights
Incorporate the use of black and neon lights to create cool lighting effects at the party.
4. Paper Tableware
5. Fun Fabric
6. Floating Balloons
7. Cosmic Confetti
8. Celestial Cutouts
Assemble poster boards to resemble shooting stars, planets, aliens, or even UFOs. Attach the cutouts to the wall or hang them from the ceiling using a fishing line.
9. Galactic Garland
For an easy and beautiful pop of decor, add a star-shaped garland as a fun backdrop. You can hang the stars from your ceiling, or drape them above doorways, for an out-of-this-world decoration.
Galaxy Theme Party Ideas: Games and Activities
10. Rocket Launch
Rocket launching kits can be purchased online, but you can also create do-it-yourself rockets with household supplies.
11. UFO Toss
Staple or glue two paper plates together to create a flying saucer shape. Allow guests to decorate the UFOs with paint, stickers, or other crafting supplies. Guests should throw the saucers as far as they can into space. The guest who achieves the greatest distance is the winner.
12. Be a Star
Play music for a karaoke contest. Allow guests to perform and try to achieve star status. For a twist, you could only play songs that involve stars or celestial objects such as “Shooting Stars” or “Dark Side of the Moon.”
13. Astrology Readings
Learn to read the horoscopes in the constellation and galaxy to the delight of your guests. You could also try a tarot card reading. Hire a professional or allow guests to take turns reading each other’s futures.
Ask guests to stand in a circle. Provide a balloon not filled with helium to a player. That player should say a person’s name before they hit the balloon to him or her. The player whose name was said needs to hit the balloon and say another guest’s name. Add multiple balloons to make the game more chaotic and fun.
Galaxy Theme Party Ideas: Menus
15. Star Pasta
Use star-shaped pasta to make soups or macaroni and cheese; you could serve the pasta with sauce for an Italian meal.
Make homemade pizzas or order some from your local pizza place. Label the pizzas “flying saucers” to add to the celestial theme.
18. Edible Confetti
Galaxy Theme Party Ideas: Favors
19. Key Chains
20. Glow Stars
Packs of glow in the dark stars can make for great giveaways. Guests can hang them on their ceilings or walls when they get home. Even when the party ends, the stars can continue shining!
Stickers that glow in the dark are an excellent, inexpensive favor option. Kids especially will love having sheets of stickers to share with their friends or siblings.
A galaxy theme party can make your next socially distanced get together or family reunion zoom call one to remember. Have a blast as your party shines bright like a star.
