This year BOTH of our kids wanted Star Wars birthday parties. Here are some ideas on how we made it happen for them…
We made Zoey’s Princess Leia dress and hair buns and painted her water gun blaster black.
Made these simple light saber napkins using a free printable.
Created some signs for food/utensils. I will share the file once I find it.
Found some hexagon crackers to use for Tie Fighters. Used cream cheese to ‘glue’ it all together.
Made these cupcake toppers square because they are much easier to cut than circular ones!
For Zoey, we made Princess Leia cupcakes. These were incredibly easy to make!
- Frost entire cupcake with white frosting
- Create hair using chocolate frosting. I put some in a ziplock bag, cut a small hole in the corner and squeezed the frosting out of the hole.
- Eyes are mini chocolate chips
- Mouth is heart shaped sprinkles
- To add Oreo hair buns, insert a toothpick into the center of the cookie, then insert the opposite side of the toothpick into the cupcake.
For Zander, we made light saber cupcakes. Again, easy and self-explanatory.
We made a giant AT AT head out of cardboard. When attached to our grey play structure it looks like a giant AT AT in our backyard! Check out the video on how it was made.
Darth Vader made a special appearance and had some fun of his own.
We had the fun opportunity to go to Comic-Con this year and these were our cosplay costumes. Check out the tutorials.
One afternoon, we made this cardboard X-Wing fighter for Zander, also. See the DIY tutorial here.
