Star Wars Birthday Party by Laura Aguirre
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is almost here, and we can’t wait! The force was strong as we planned a fun party to help kick off the excitement of the upcoming movie release!
I set up a small table, fit for our little Star Wars lovers. They were greeted by light sabers, and lots of fun goodies at each place setting.
I turned over car wash buckets and used them as seating for our little guests. I found some Star Wars stickers, and stuck them on the sides of the buckets, for a little added fun!
I made a simple light saber for each child to use during battle. I took colored BamBams and wrapped them with Silver Metallic Streamers. A little black electrical tape detailed the saber handles nicely.
The children loved hitting the sabers together as they made a fun & unique sound. An easy + inexpensive craft that had the young masters battling the entire party!
When we called our friends over to celebrate, we asked them to dress as their favorite Star Wars characters. This would make for some fun photo opportunities in the simple photo booth we set up!
To create the photo backdrop, I took a roll of Black Stardust Patterned Paper, and covered a large section of plywood. I attached a few Star Wars balloons to a Black Foil Balloon Weight, and set out a super cool BB-8 Star Wars Standee.
When it comes to planning children’s parties, you can’t go wrong with a simple photo booth, festive decor, and The Star War Party Game! Each guest was blindfolded and sent off to either rule the galaxy, or join the resistance.
After pictures, light saber battles, and deciding what side they would choose, our little friends sat down for some party snacks & fun treats.
For the table centerpiece, I created a faux cake by using some of the black stardust paper that I had for the photo booth backdrop. I covered styrofoam rounds, and finished it off with Red Tissue Festooning.
Our guests had a great time celebrating, and talking about their excitement for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I hope our tips + easy decoration ideas have inspired you to create your own Star Wars party!
