A Star Wars Birthday Party is a Blast

May 23, 2008
Although there hasn't been a recent movie release, Star Wars is still a great favorite among fans new and old. Children of all ages from find the world that was produced by Star Wars creator George Lucas to be an immeasurably enthralling world in which to grant their vision and fantasies to take flight in that galaxy far, far away.

If your exceptional birthday girl or boy is a fan of these films this is the can't miss party theme to add to your perfect birthday party list. There are a lot of ways you can go that will bring the theme to light in a way that allows everyone involved to have fun.

First and Foremost, you could have a classic Star Wars event with the original Episodes (IV, V, and VI) display one after the other throughout the party. This is perfect for an all night or all day sort of party as it grants breaks in between the screenings and loads of time to incorporate some serious snack creating or pizza ordering without interfering with the DVDs being shown in the back ground.

If you want to take things a step further you can also have your invitees come dressed as their favorite Star Wars characters from all 6 films. If you are sincerely adventurous you can do a back-to-back showing of all six films although this makes for a very long weekend sort of event. Perfect if your birthday lands on or around a 3-day weekend such as Labor Day or Memorial Day. Otherwise it's a great idea but you may want to split it up into two years' worth of festivities.

If your child's friends are a creative crowd you can have a session where guests reflect and produce tall tales about what happens between Episodes III and IV as well as what happens to favorite characters after Episode VI. This is a lot of fun and creates a sort of role-playing aura for the party that can be a great amount of fun. If this isn't enough activity and you want a little something more to wear the kids (big or small) out, you might choose to invite your guests to a Jedi developing academy of sorts. Set up an obstacle course for everyone to follow and a series of exercises similar to what Luke went through in The Empire Strikes Back. The winner can get some Star Wars themed award for giggles and a little added excitement.

Most bakeshops are likely to have a great form cake on hand or in stock for Star Wars because the theme remains so popular. If not, however, there are nice, cake ideas online that work really great for a Star Wars theme with home made birthday cakes. It's really great if you can try one of these because it will be something unlike what everyone else who does a Star Wars themed party will have. You could also go with a backdrop of stars and the original Star Wars logo painted in yellow.

This event is simple and yet completely appropriate. If a Star Wars themed birthday party is anyplace on your wish list for your birthday or your child or significant other's birthday by all means work your best effort to make this a fun and memorable party. May the Force be with you.
