This year for my son's birthday we decided since he loves learning about Outer Space that we would have a space theme party/sleepover. There were a total of 8 boys (however we had a few party crashers (the girls 5) that enjoyed food and fun also.
Technically this was a party for 8 but it was planned for 12. There was enough supplies and food for 12+ party goers. So the total budget was $200.00 roughly $16 per child.
Below you will see how I created a Fantastic Moment for an affordable price of $200.00.
