Tired of the same old orange and black Halloween party theme? Looking for something unique that kids and tweens will find creepy and cool, but isn’t TOO scary? This Alien-Themed Halloween Party is perfect. Read on to see how I set it all up!
How to Throw an Alien-Themed Halloween Party for Kids or Tweens
As an OTC blogger, I received compensation and/or products in exchange for my styling and crafting services. As always, all project ideas and any opinions expressed here are my own. For further information on our disclosure policy please check out our disclosure page.
First, I scattered glow-in-the-dark alien and galaxy shapes over a white table. In the center, I added a spaceship fiber-optic light and a cow (often the subjects of alien abductions). Then, on each side, I added holographic containers of glowsticks. My place settings included lime green dinner plates, metallic silver star-shaped dessert plates, and silver plastic flatware. Each guest also received a glow-in-the-dark plastic cup, disco ball “planet” cup, an “alien blaster” bubble gun, an alien squish figurine, and an eyeball headband. For a fun party trick, turn the lights out at some point – this table looks awesome with all the glowing elements!
Of course, the fun favors on the table weren’t enough. Kids love picking out toys and trinkets to take home. Instead of a dessert table (there’s enough sugar on Halloween already!), I decided to set up a favor table for the kids to “shop” for a variety of alien-themed Halloween party favors. I hung an iridescent fringe and star backdrop behind the table and added some silver star garlands and lime green alien balloons. Then, in addition to the extra favors, I added some stars and moons, a few beakers and test tubes of “alien slime”, and a creepy alien mask in a jar of green slime. Personalized frisbees in the back of the table thank guests for visiting “Area 51”.
Backdrop & Photo Booth
You’ll never regret setting up a spot for photos – they’re great ways to save the memories from a party! For this photo booth, I used a moon-and-stars chandelier in front of a galaxy backdrop. On the ground, I set up a giant lime-green alien inflatable chair, and a variety of space- and alien-themed props. My prop stand doubled as an alien rocketship beanbag toss game, for more entertainment.
Alien Abduction Halloween Costume
Finally, I created a DIY alien abduction Halloween costume. This super simple and cute costume is perfect for photos or to use while trick-or-treating. You can get the details for how to create it yourself HERE.
