A Star Wars Birthday

Not a typical post for me but I had so much fun decorating for my nephew’s birthday party that I wanted to share the details. My sister and brother in-law chose the Star Wars theme and with the new movie release, it made it quite easy to find ideas and supplies! The party was a real hit! So much so that it may be hard to beat next year ๐Ÿ˜‰

Birthday tableA homemade birthday banner above the main party table. I printed out the letters from Microsoft Word, pasted them onto colored paper purchased from the Dollar Tree and cut a thick edge. Dollar Tree was a great source for supplies! I even found the red trays there. ย Food labels were also homemade and designed in (cough cough)ย Microsoft Paint.

Table close upFound the ballons on Amazon and we created our own centerpiece with “Darth Tater” and a few other accessories!

CupcakesDark chocolate Darth Vaders sit nicely atop the birthday cupcakes. I purchased a silicone mold on Amazon which worked like a charm for chocolate!

Wookie CookiesI can’t take credit for these beautiful (and delicious!) Wookie Cookies. Sister in-law Ally is the master and hand decorated each one.

lightsabersMini lightsabers! I melted down colored candy (purchased at JoAnn’s), coated mini pretzels and set in the refrigerator.

kabobsI used a black food writing pen for the Storm Trooper marshmallows (those took some patience!) As did wrapping forks in the colored napkins ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here is the lightsaber napkin template;
