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!
