Party and Detective

Samantha from Sweet Eats Cakes here and, I am so excited to be guest posting for Spaceships and Laser Beams. I love to throw a good party and especially love planning themed dessert tables so thats what Im going to help you guys do.

My first post is all about ideas you can use to plan a police detective or secret agent birthday party. As with each post, I will be giving you ideas for different party games, food, and desserts and then showing you a tutorial for one of those ideas. If you follow me on Pinterest, I will be putting together boards for each party and continue to add to those boards. [See my police detective party pin board“]

Of course, I am open to suggestions for different boy party themes you might be interested in throwing. The first party up is a secret agent/police detective party, which would be perfect for boys ages 6+.

Set the theme for the party by making the guest decode a special message.

  • Decoder invitations

Simple party décor can set the scene for the fun day ahead.

  • Crime scene tape
  • Black foot prints
  • Body outlines

All secret agents need to be prepared when on the job.

  • Hats
  • Sunglasses
  • Paper mustaches
  • Notepad
  • Pen

Hold a secret agent school.

  • Fingerprinting
  • How to write in invisible ink
  • How to decode secret messages
  • Earning secret agent badges
  • Upon completion of secret agent school put those skills to the test with a scavenger hunt.

Serve guest traditional party food with secret agent names.

  • Secret agent sandwiches
  • Detective dogs
  • Mission impossible pizza
  • Mystery Much (Trail mix)
  • Sweet Justice Juice


  • Double agent donuts
  • Chocolate mustaches
  • Magnifying glass lollipops
  • Briefcase cake
  • Crime scene cookies

I hope that gives you guys some ideas on how to plan and execute your secret agent/detective party. Stay tuned for my next post a little later today! I am going to be showing you how to make the crime scene cookies for the party!
