STAR WARS BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!

EPISODE V

DASH STRIKES BACK

DASH'S 5th BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!!!

DASH’S 5th BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!!! Death Star Cake Pop Face!

Dash is in LOVE with Star Wars.  He used to be obsessed with Thomas the Train….now, STAR WARS is where it’s at!  Seriously, he can tell you all sorts of useless information.  He even schooled his Dentist when Dr. James made an incorrect statement.  So funny.  Gotta love him!

Anywho, for those who might be thinking about a Star Wars Party in the future, I hope this helps with some ideas.  It all turned out supercute and everyone had a blast!  I also used SIMONEMADEIT.com for Custom Party Printables.  She has a TON of different Party Themes.  Check it out!!! You just choose what you want to print, and she has a ton of different options. (Invitations, Banners, Party Favors, Food/Drink Cards, Jedi Training, Jedi Certificate, Thank You Notes…all customizable!!!)  Amazing, Looked Awesome, and saved me a TON of Time since I was doing the food.  I HIGHLY recommend it!!! LifeSaver!!!

First, the Decorations.  We saved a TON of $$$ by using Mark and Rhett’s old Star Wars toys.  It turned out AWESOME and was definitely the frugal way to go.  It let me use the old toys, but kept them out of the way of all the kids so they remained intact and didn’t get broken at the party!

These were so easy to make, and the HIT of the Party!!!!

Take a regular pool noodle and slice it in half.

Using the sliced half, cover with sliver duct tape.

Then, using colored electrical tape, Decorate!

The Kids could wail on each other, but not get hurt!

AWESOME!!!!

(these DID take time to make, do in advance with a glass, or two, of wine!!!!)

I took some nerf guns and TONS of bullets and let them go to town!

All the kids loved this one!

We ended up letting them go one at a time.

That way they could see who popped it first!

I also made Jedi Robes by cutting brown sheets lengthwise and adding a neck hole.  Again, cheap, easy, and the boys LOVED it!  Tied with Twine!
