How To Throw A Star Wars Party


When my twin daughters told me they wanted a Star Wars themed birthday party this year, I was more than excited to give them one! I started off with the Star Wars Generations Invitations, inviting friends and family to celebrate their 8th birthday with us. Guests were greeted at the front door by a Clonetrooper Life Size Standee with a speech bubble that read "This is the party you’re looking for…move along". The speech bubble is made from foamcore and attached to the Clonetrooper.

We used the Shindigz Hollywood Starry Night Room Roll as our backdrop, which was perfect for our Star Wars theme. The balloon bouquets were put together using the Blue Star Mylar Balloons and the Black with White Stars Around Balloons we found at Shindigz. The birthday girls wore Star Wars costumes and dressed as a Rebel Pilot and Darth Vader. (Are those outfits adorable or what?!)

We personalized a custom Happy Birthday banner using the Twinkle Stars Personalized Banner. I placed Stars Wars movie scene 8X10 pictures around for added decoration.

We fired up the grill and served "Han Burgers" and "Hoth Dogs" and ate "7 Leia Dip", "Jar Jar Links" and "Wookie Cookies". I found the printable food and drink signs on Pinterest. Our Star Wars themed food was served on the Star Wars Generations Dinner Plates and Dessert Plates and we used Shindigz Silver Cutlery. Tables were covered with the Stars Wars Generations Table Cover and the True Blue Round Plastic Table Cover.

Our drinks had names too! We labeled our "Yoda Soda" and "Luke SkyWATER" using the personalized Twinkle Star Water Bottle Labels. Guests drank "Vaderade" from the Star Wars Generations Paper Cups.

The children at the party were presented with their very own Jedi Robe when they arrived.

The kids participated in Jedi Training and were also presented with a light saber. The kids were excited to take these home as party gifts.

We played "Pin the Bun on Princess Leia" and each kid had their turn at destroying the Darth Vader pinata. I made a light saber pinata stick using a broom handle I covered with True Blue Crepe Streamers and silver and black Duct Tape.

Guests were reminded to "Wash their Hans" in the bathroom. Sometimes its the little things that make the party!

Our Star Wars party was a huge hit and we had a lot of fun celebrating. Everyone loved all the decorations I found at Shindigz that made our party really come together.

Thank you for sharing John. We give you "Dad of the Year!"
