Must have STAR WARS party ideas!

Must have STAR WARS party ideas!

Probably your little Jedi would like to celebrate his or her birthday with this cool theme, so I thought it would be a great idea to help you plan a perfect STAR WARS PARTY with these must have items that just can't miss on any galactic celebration!

1.  The CAKE! I think everyone remembers the scene where one of the most beloved droids BB8 gave a thumbs up to Finn in The Force Awakens movie. Wouldn't it be just perfect to have this unforgettable moment right in the middle of your candy table and even better to eat it!!?
Well, let me tell you it is possible! Check out this amazing Star Wars Cake with BB8 thumbs up!

However, if you are more of a fan for other Star Wars characters such as Stormtrooper, R2D2 Chewbacca, Darth Vader and even C3PO, then you may want to include a layered cake. Here are some examples of you can play with the characters on each tier.

Recently i just found out these outstanding sculptures from Mike's Amazing Cakes; if your son is a fan of the Empire maybe you can consider the head of Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper to be the cake!

Mike's Amazing Cakes also made the Following cake, it caught my attention because is not common to find a cake specifically for the movie "The Force Awakens" which, by the way, I totally loved, so having the Villain Kylo Ren, Rey and BB8 together in one cake makes it just fabulous!

2.  Light sabers!! (Of course): These Energy Swords are the favorite weapons of all Star Wars history. 
 The most known colors are Blue, Green, and Red.

You can also use the Light Sabers for the kids to play, they will have so much fun "fighting" with the swords that they will most likely forget tor return to the Rebel base to complete the mission! The best part? No one gets hurt, and they can use this toy to play indoor or outdoor! 
All you need is Pool Noodles, Duck tape and Electrical tape and just a bit or creativity!
