Party Recap

This year we celebrated my son's 6th birthday with....*cue the theme music* A Star Wars Party!

Idea

Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    The kids! They all looks so adorable in their Padawan tunics...especially the little ones.

  • Desserts

    Cupcakes: Chocolate for the Dark Side & Vanilla for The Force (Light Side)

  • Activities / Games

    Jedi Training Academy & Design A Death Star Chalk Board Globes

  • Best Moment

    Watching the kids have a blast going through the "black hole" They couldn't get enough of it!

  • What People Ate

    Pizza , fruit, veggies, cheese & crackers, snacks and Cupcakes

  • What People Drank

    Yoda Soda, Blue Milk & Padawan Punch

  • Most Touching Moment

    For me it was watching the kids leave kicking and screaming because they were having sooo much fun. That melts my heart...but I'm sure the parents of those kids would beg to differ.

  • Funniest Moment

    There were several funny moments...mostly during the Jedi Training. Kids hanging out in the "black hole" & riding the Eopies...that was sooo funny. I've never seen bigger smiles on so many kids.

    Thanks! My parents did several box mazes for us as kids and they are still great fun today. The kids had a blast and it really didn't cost much to make.

    Hi! Adorable party ideas! I am having an issue with the R2D2 tutorial download. The images are appearing much smaller than in the photos such that I can only get them to fit a 10oz cup. Any ideas as to how to make it fit the 12 oz cup like yours? Thanks again - love your stuff!
