Sometimes, I have very bright ideas. One of my bright ideas of 2020, before the World shut down, was convincing Amelia to co-host our son’s birthday parties together.
Amelia was sure that we would be doing a Star Wars theme, because she had hit up a Party City that was closing and CLEANED THEM OUT of all of the Star Wars things.
We kept it simple and rented out a local Karate Studio which was, might I say, a stroke of GENIUS. The kids loved it.
From there, Amelia (literally) rented a UHAUL because she had made so many things that needed to be transported.
We kept the snacks simple as it was a 3 PM party- We served:
- ‘Princess Lays’
- BB8 Buddies
- Wookie Cookies
- Star Wars Cupcakes With chocolate molded Star Wars things
Will you just look at this Chewbacca Background? This is created with tablecloths cut in strips, a brown kraft roll of paper, and grey vinyl cut in rectangles.
We also had JEDI ROBES. We made these with a roll of burlap, cut into 48″ strips. We folded them in half, and cut the front so it could slide on. We added a waist tie made of jute.
Naturally, we had balloons galore- The marbled balloons were my favorite. Close Second: The Fun silver pointy orby things.
May the Fours Be With you, Even though these stinky boys have now turned 5.
