My little space explorer knew exactly how she wanted to celebrate her 4th birthday – with a Miles from Tomorrowland Birthday Party. So I set out on a mission to create an out-of-this-world party featuring Miles, Merk and the whole Calisto family.
Miles From Tomorrowland Birthday Party
Inside our very own Stellasphere, the space-themed birthday party had plenty of color by focusing on colors from Disney Junior’s Miles from Tomorrowland – orange, green and blue. I also used the show’s signature hexagon as a recurring shape throughout the party.
Having changed my mind about a dozen times, I absolutely love the way the space background turned out. I used sparkly black felt to cover my background creating a sparkly space and then hung bright planets cut from colorful and sparkly cardstock paper.
Miles From Tomorrowland Food Ideas
Sissy has always had a mind of her own, and her birthday “cake” was no different. I spent weeks researching the perfect space cake, because that’s what she said she wanted. When I finally settled on exactly what to order out of the blue she announced that she wanted a “donut cake.”
A what? A donut cake!
Miles From Tomrorowland birthday party themed desserts included:
- Blodger – green jello jigglers with candy eyes
- TTA Admirals – green candy-coated marshmallows with green coconut hair (and mustache) and candy eyes, stuck together in pairs
- Booster Bites – galaxy swirled candy bark
- Alien Cookies – soft and chewy cookies with crazy candy eyes
- Meteorites – blue rock candy (I sent these home with the kids)
Miles From Tomorrowland Birthday Party Decorations
In keeping with the space theme, I turned bright paper lanterns into planets for the table centerpiece. I wrapped one in star garland, created a shiny ring for another and left the third plain. And placed the only Miles From Tomorrowland toys (from Target) we had prior to the party on the table.
Miles From Tomorrowland Party Activities
Although the little ones are happy just playing, I did organize three simple activities for the Miles From Tomorrowland birthday party that were a hit. We played Land the Rocket on the Planet (a space-themed version of pin the tale). The game was very easy to make and the kids must have played a dozen times, over and over!
Partygoers were greeted with their very own lazerangs – blue glow-in-the-dark bracelets – to wear throughout the party. I wasn’t sure how well they would glow in the middle of the day, but they were really cute. I picked up two packs of 8 blue bracelets at the dollar store. If you can’t find them locally, Amazon has some too.
I bought a large pack of plastic glow-in-the-dark stars and divided them up for each guest. The stars I used included a tacky poster putty for hanging, so I used scissors to cut a strip of putty for each child. I saved the large stars for the birthday girl and then divided the smaller stars equally among the children. (I can’t remember how many each child received now, but there were plenty for 10 children in this pack. I filled each clear plastic bag with 20 or so.)
