Alien Party for Adults – 6 Tips for an Extraterrestrial Theme Party




Flashing lights in the sky, a spotlight on you, and… “poof” you’re beamed up into the most party-happy flying saucer you can imagine, where aliens and humans peacefully let the cow fly together. Let this fantasy become reality and celebrate a galactically good alien party!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I fervently wish for an alien invasion.

Peace-loving aliens, of course, and with technology superior to ours, so that they just clean up our world politics, fix the climate along the way, and usher in a new age of peace and global unity. In other words: a chilly age!

Of course, this would be celebrated worldwide and as often as possible, together with the aliens, and in the futuristic atmosphere of a UFO, with extraterrestrial good drinks, toasting to the intergalactic harmony…

A beautiful performance? Well, then the motto of your next theme party is already set: UFOs, aliens, visitors from outer space! ??

6 Tips for Your Alien Party or UFO Party

Whether it’s New Year’s Eve, a birthday, Halloween or any other occasion, theme parties are always special and are usually remembered much longer than other celebrations.

The ingredients to any good theme party are:

  • a cool motto
  • Enthusiasm and imagination in implementing the motto
  • enthusiastic guests
  • original costumes
  • stylish deco
  • delicious treats and drinks
  • Music that puts you in a good mood

How to beam it all up, turn your living room into Area 51 or the inside of a UFO and make your visitors from all corners of the universe feel at home – we have 6 shooting star hot tips for you.

1. Preparation and Checklist

Good preparation is essential for a theme party. And a checklist can be a great help, according to experience. This way you won’t miss anything important during the planning and you’ll have a clear overview of what has already been done and what still needs to be done.

To create a suitable checklist for a alien party or alien party, it makes sense to ask yourself a few questions beforehand:

  1. Should the party be indoors or outdoors? Or partly?
  2. What location is available to you? Are there possibly several options? If so, which of them fits best to the theme UFOs and aliens?
  3. What should the location ideally look like and what do you need for decoration?
  4. Which food and drinks do you want to offer? Do you find something suitable for the motto “alien party”?
  5. What is your planning regarding music? Are you the DJ yourself, do you prepare a playlist or is there even live music?
  6. What all must be purchased? And what can you possibly borrow from others? (e.g. additional chairs, crockery and cutlery, decorative elements, music system etc.)?

In any case, take a look at our ultimate party checklist.

2. Invitation to the Alien Party

"Craft a UFO card with alien on the way to Earth is quite simple, here is a DIY tutorial."

DIY UFO card: the visitors from outer space can come...

You can already set the style of your theme party with the invitation. For an alien party or UFO party, it is therefore a good idea to buy cards with a matching motif or to make them yourself. In the invitation text, you should of course tell your guests what kind of theme party it is, and so on. Be as creative as possible, because this is the best way to inspire your guests to be creative as well. For example, you could write the following:

Dear friends from all corners of the universe,

You are hereby invited to my intergalactic alien party on [DATE]. Please don’t be afraid to show yourselves in all your alien glory, mimicry is not required for once. In other words, let your skin naturally shimmer green (yellow, blue, purple…?), let your tentacles hang relaxed, don’t hide your extra pairs of eyes – just be yourself: extraterrestrial, extravagant, extra-original! (Don’t worry, I’ll make sure that neither press paparazzi nor government agents can track you down with me.) I will provide a basic stock of exquisite food and drink from all arms of the Milky Way, heck, from all corners of all star clusters, but I would be happy if you could also bring something from your respective home planets that will taste delicious, fill the stomach and keep the throat moist.

I await you in my mothership, which you will find (disguised as an apartment) at [ADDRESS].

Sincerely yours [NAME]

I mean: Who would turn down an invitation like that?

3. How To Turn Your Living Room Into Area 51…

…or to the inside of a UFO …or to the surface of an alien planet… It all depends on how you want to decorate and design your living room or, more generally, the party location you have chosen.

Silver mirror foil, for example, is great for giving a location a futuristic look.

In addition, there are also several other decorative elements:

4. Alien Costumes

What does an alien look like? Countless science fiction writers and filmmakers have asked themselves this question and invented the strangest extraterrestrial life forms, from the bizarre (the living ocean in Solaris) to the terrifying (the classic Giger alien from the Alien series) to the hilarious and downright adorable (E.T., Yoda and many others).

The question is: what kind of alien do you want to embody at your alien party?

Sure a peaceful one, but of course that can look scary and still have a heart of gold. 😀

Here are some suggestions for alien costumes:
