So picture time!
|The table. R2-D2 cake, food with Star Wars puns, and a decorating kit I bought at Party City.|
|We love themed food! These two were Jon's idea. Shards of Alderaan and Hoth Chocolate. Our location-themed items.|
|We made light sabers with pretzel rods and candy melts. We also made some themed candy with molds from ThinkGeek.|
|A close-up of the candy from the ThinkGeek candy molds. There are chocolate ones and colored vanilla ones.|
|No Star Wars party is complete without the Princess - and no party is complete without Lay's potato chips. ;)|
|Fruit kabobs! I think Obi-Wan would approve of these. Nathan helped us skewer the fruit. He's obsessed with kabobs.|
|Darth Veggies! This was me cheating because I didn't have time to cut up a bunch of veggies. Enter the convenient veggie tray! I was going to put them in my own tray so at least they would look nicer, but we ran out of time.|
|Smash cake. I made this using two small ramekins, so it has two layers. It's the perfect size for a smash cake. The Vader head on top was from a Pez dispenser that Nathan had previously destroyed, so I repurposed it. The candle is his light saber.|
|Here's his birthday sign. I made it in Photoshop and had it printed at Wal-Mart's Photo center. We then mounted it on a piece of foam board from Hobby Lobby. We have one for each of our boys. I'm going to hang them on their wall one day.|
|A closer look at R2-D2. It took many hours to complete and I cried a little when they cut into it.|
Star Wars is a great theme for a party! Have you done a Star Wars birthday party? I want to see yours! Link in the comments and I'll check it out!
Oh, and a final picture...
|He loved his cake. :)|
