Look out below! These cute aliens are landing and they’re looking for a party! These alien party ideas are sure to cause giggles with your little party guests. We have loads of ideas to share for adorable decorations, creative food, fun activities, silly favors and so much more! All of the printable party supplies featured in this post are by Spaceships and Laser Beams. At the bottom of this post, I’ll share where you can find some of the supplies mentioned here.
Alien Party Ideas – Invitations:
The aliens are on their way to invade your party so it’s time to let your guests know how to get prepared! Invitations should include the child’s first and last name (if no last name on the invitation, then on the return label on the envelope), party date, party time, location and a phone number or email address to RSVP to. It’s also a good idea to check with the other parents for food allergies before you start planning your party menu. Your invitation could be sealed with a glow in the dark star.
Alien Party Ideas – Decorations:
I love glow in the dark toys and party supplies and this alien theme is perfect for glowing decorations. If using glowing decorations, make sure the room is dark enough for the glowing decorations to really stand out. Some fun ideas for glowing decorations include:
- glowing bracelets as napkin rings or around cups
- glowing LED flashing balloons
- glowing alien figurines
- glow rings around the base of platters
- glowing stars on the wall
- glowing straws in cups
- glowing utensils
The Alien Invasion printable party set also includes party hats, placemats and labels that can be used as coasters, on the front of cups, to create a custom banner or wreath on the front door and more. The party banner (see the first photo above) can be placed on the skirt of the table or on the wall above the food table.
We have alien decals in our playroom so I used these as a background for this party (see the first photo above). In the printable party set, there is a backdrop that matches the party supplies that can be printed on poster size paper (see your local print or office supply shop) and displayed behind the food table.
Other fun ideas for party decor include:
- inflatable aliens
- UFO Parking sign
- Area 51 sign
- A “Welcome Earthlings” sign on the front door
- Solar system display hanging above the food table
Alien Party Ideas – Activities:
Have you ever seen an alien? Well, now is your chance to catch one! Hide little green aliens around the party and have your guests go on a little treasure hunt to find the aliens. The guest with the most aliens at the end of the game can win a prize.
There are also many fun glow in the dark games that can be played in a large open area. Here is a fun guest post I wrote for MommyPage with some glow in the dark games that you can easily make at home.
A silly craft idea would be to give the kids supplies to make their own alien antennas. Supplies could include headbands, pipe cleaners and sparkly foam balls.

- Onion Rings labeled as “Saturn’s Rings”
