Alien "Brunch" Invasion Party

Last Tuesday, my Alien "Brunch" Invasion party 
was featured in Spaceships and Laser Beams' "Boy Bash on a Budget Challenge." 

(Still giddy because I love their collection for boys!)

With this budget challenge, every participant gets to pick the Spaceships and Laser Beams collection of their choice and decide whether to do a $50 dessert table or $20 tablescape. 

I was encouraged to use what I have, borrow, and get creative!

I did the $50 Dessert table challenge and spent $43.93...woohooo!!
 I shopped for food at my favorite grocery store (Trader Joe's), got my crafts at the Dollar Tree Store and Jo-Ann's...and used left over party supplies from Caiden's Airplane party

I wanted to do something fun and different for this challenge.
 So instead of a Dessert table...

I created a Brunch setting with pancakes, cereal, muffins, yogurt and for dessert...
inside-out, carrot cake cookies! 

I kept the table very simple in-order for me to stay within my budget...

I managed to get crafty with paper cups and I made a spaceship! 

With green paper cups, I drew faces to match Spaceships and Laser Beams' Alien collection and added green pipes and poms for the antennas. 
 I'm not an artist...but I was impressed w/ my drawing. :)        

The spaceship I made were plastic bowls from the Dollar Tree store (2 for $1)
...I wasn't sure if it looked like one, so I asked several kids for their opinions!
Not bad, huh? ;) 

This challenge was so much fun 
especially since Caiden loves everything that has to do with Space!
