DIY Firefly Party

Candle holders and pillows were also thrift store finds.

I really want to try making those ice planets now!

Delegate assignments. What food will be served. Who will make what crafts.

Add some Asian elements here and there throughout the rest of the house. Paper globe lanterns and decorations with Kanji on them works nicely.

Determine where and when the party will be.

Ice planets! My food is problematic. But it doesnt have to be!

To get a metallic look, spray paint boxes black, lightly spray a metallic silver or chrome on edges and immediately roughen the metallic paint by scrubbing a wad of newspaper on it.

My friends Megan and Shane used play toy balls cut in half as the ice cream sphere mold and coffee stirrers as support. A chocolate shell coating adds some extra structural support.

Fresh strawberries – easy. Display in a cigar box.

Caution stripes were made with masking tape and yellow and red spray paints. The screw heads is a pencil eraser dipped in black paint and stamped on.

Please be positive and constructive.

I raided Goodwill for dark red and gold colored sheets, curtains and table cloths.

These invitations feature thirty in firefly font on the front of the post card, created in photoshop.

These were all hung with command hooks and string around the entire room. Safety pins help hold them in place as well.

Candy – Asian candy. Coffee flavored, green tea chocolate flavored, some kind of flower nectar flavor.

Kaylees bunk featured her shindig dress, a parasol (purchased), string lights and flowers (silk flowers hot glued together in a string).

I love this! Where did you find the thirty invites/signs?

I hope this gives you some inspiration!

Little extra fun – Toy dinos with straws and quotes printed on paper corresponding with each food.

For a lit control panel, poke holes in the cardboard and stick a few Christmas lights through the back.

Thanks. It took two months of planning lol.

About: I like making little treats and pretty much doing anything crafty. I want to learn new techniques and share how I do what I do.

I got a lot of help for ideas by searching the internet.

Calling all Firefly fans! This instructable gives you some ideas on how to create a Firefly-themed party.

They were made in photoshop. Feel free to use the card front.

Did you make this project? Share it with us!

This occasion was for a friends 30th birthday.

Fruity Oaty Bars – Fruity Pebbles rice crispy bars.

The control panels are cardboard boxes with arcade buttons and switches poked through the tops.

***Do all spray painting in well-ventilated areas.

When it comes to recreating Inaras shuttle, think exotic fabrics and candles.

Simons Protein Cake – Actually, just a two-layer chocolate cake with chocolate icing.

Steak Kabobs – If wishes were horses – wed all be eating steak. These are steak stew meat pieces, pineapples, peppers, onions and mushrooms – skewered and thrown on the grill. (Awesome job Chris, Trey and Craig).

Here are some sites for more inspiration:

Candles can be expensive! Make your own fake candles. I took about 3-4 of a paper towel cardboard tube and put an x over one end with scotch tape. Then roll the tube plus about 2 inches in two sheets of red tissue paper. Cut and tape the paper to fit with transparent scotch tape. Put a LED tealight candle on your x scotch tape platform and there you have a candle.

Here is a good how to link. /blog/articles/The-Problem-with-ice-planets

This is so good! You can tell a ton of thought went into each little bit of the decorations. 😀

The view window is a big box that was folded and ductaped to stand upright. Use masking tape (with newspaper for overspray) to make the beams. Start with the main beam by spray painting a solid silver stripe. Add dimension by lightly painting the edges black. Repeat this step for all the side beams. Add your screw head dots. The stars are just dots of white paint. The planet/moon was made by spraying white paint inside a toilet paper tube.
