Star Wars Party (23 photos)
I was asked to create a Star Wars themed party for my favorite client's sweet son who was turning five. I had to do alot of research online since I have never seen a Star Wars movie/episode before.
I chose my color scheme first and decided to go with royal blue, black and white with touches of gold and silver. There were a few things I realized were essential to an awesome Star Wars party right off the bat. Each kid had to have a personalized Jedi robe, a lightsaber and a fun character mask. I bought brown pillow cases from Walmart ($5.40 for two pack), a fabric stencil and white fabric paint and paint sponge. I cut a hole at the top of each pillow case for their heads and two holes for their arms on the sides. Then I painted each Jedi's name on the back of their robes. I bought white rope from Lowes ($16 for a 100ft) to tie around their waists. The robes looked adorable!
I made lightsabers from pool noodles, cut in half, that I bought from the Dollar Store. Added some silver duct tape and black electrical tape. Turned out great and no one was injured :) I found super cute printable masks on Etsy. Kids love masks!!
For the tablescape I made a death star centerpiece out of a floral foam ball from Michaels ($10 after 40% off coupon) I bought silver glitter spray and pin striping tape to complete the mission ;) I cut a hole in it and glued a piece of gray cardboard in the hole. Then I put the death star on a dowel stick and added some stars which I had glued onto painted skewer sticks.
I found great star wars marshmallow lollipops on Chasing Fireflies.com. They also had Star Wars Pez and light up M&M filled light sabers that I used on my table. I had Death Star donuts on the table as well as Princess Leia Buns (mini cinnamon rolls). These were a great hit. I used royal blue and white gumballs and called them Thermal Detonators. I ordered individually sealed cookies from Two Smart Cookies and added my own label to each cookie. They were adorable. I found yoda and R2D2 money banks online at a reasonable price and used them for decor on my table. I also bought Star Wars action figures from Target to use on the table
To really create the feeling of the Star Wars character's presence at the party, I ordered a life size card board stand up Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett.
I found GREAT printables on AndersRuff.com for my banner, food labels and jedi training certificates. On ebay I bought a Darth Vader costume and convinced one of my friends to dress up for the party. I must admit this was the biggest hit of the entire event.
My friend who owns Bonzie Cakes, made an unbelievable R2D2 cake with lights and sounds!
This party turned out well above my greatest expectations and was worth every hours hard work I had to put into it!
