Star Light, Star Bright: A Star Gazing Party


Starlight, starbright, first star I see tonight…

We probably all knew this memorable little poem by heart from about the time we are old enough to have a sense of whimsy about us. Which makes it the perfect thing to inspire a party for little ones! Wishing on a star while laid out on a blanket gazing up at the heavens sounds like the perfect way to spend an evening while making a few memories.

Sara of Confetti Sunshine was the amazing force behind this beautiful shoot. She arranged for quite a list of talented crafters and bloggers to come together to provide all the items you see here. And as a bonus, there will be tutorials on all the little details! Every day this week, we’ll post a few more. Thanks, Sara!




Stars and constellations studded this sweet spread. Banners, garlands, bunting and a custom pillows made everything a bit magical.

I really can’t wait to see how to make these constellation flashlights–my kids are going to love them.

And it isn’t a party without a few Star Gazing treats. Lovely macarons, mason jar drinks and yummy cupcakes with pretty star toppers were picture perfect at this outing.


Come back tomorrow to see a few of the wonderful tutorials offered by the talented ladies here:

The centerpieces turned out lovely. I'm looking forward to making the constellation flashlight!
