May the Force Be With You

Last weekend was Colton's Birthday Celebration.  We have it after the holidays because it is just easier with traveling for family and friends and the weather is nicer.  I had a lot of fun planning this one and am already can not wait till next year's party.

The theme this year was Star Wars.  This definitely was a party more for Daddy than son but Colton does like Star Wars a lot.  He knows a lot of the character names and has tons on light sabers and Star War toys.




I made his invitations on our computer and printed them out then embellished with a small star sticker.  Everyone loved them and they only took me about two hours total to make and mail.

The decorations were so much fun to put together.  I found this Hallmark kit with a bunch of Star Wars paper decor.  Some of it was meant to be fork/cup decorations and confetti but I turned it into other things like streamers for window and light saber chair decor.

I made small streamers for the windows and placed a banner in the dining room above the table.



Around Christmas I found popcorn tins in the theme and emptied (ate) all the popcorn and used the tins to hold food.  I also found tins at the dollar section of Target to use for food items.  I bought star fabric on clearance at JoAnne's and placed it on both the dining and kitchen table as runners.  I did not even hem it; I just folded it in place and will reuse it for Independence day. The food was pretty simple: dips and chips, shrimp, cookies, cake, fruit and veggie trays and we ordered BBQ from our favorite place.  I made labels for all the food with Star Wars names (thanks Pinterest).
