Frankie’s 4th birthday! (Star Wars Party)

This past weekend we celebrated Frankie’s 4th birthday!

He still has a few days before he actually turns 4. (tear…)

We had a great day, with lots of family and friends. I spent weeks on Pinterest and many hours cutting and pasting for this Star Wars obsessed little guy’s party dreams to come true!

When I saw the look on his face and all of the fun he had, I knew it was all worth it!

While I go take a nap and catch up on all of the sleep I’ve missed out on doing party prep, here are some of the details from Frankie’s special day!

If it wasn’t for Pinterest, I would have been lost! 

Below are all of the links to the amazing printables I found and used.

Star Wars Birthday table

The treat table was so fun to make!

The backdrop is an outer space table cloth I got at a local party store. I traced the two tie fighters onto some cardboard, cut them out and painted them silver. The lettering was made on the computer, I cut out each letter and colored them in. The amazing banner is from: http://libbiegrove.blogspot.ca/2012/03/free-printable-star-wars-birthday.html  It’s amazing and fit the theme so well!

The cups were wrapped with the fun R2D2 printables you can find here: http://www.organizedsahm.com/2011/10/star-wars-birthday-party-part-5-lightsaber-napkins-and-r2d2-drink-cups/

The snack table had lots of yummy treats including:

  • Padawan popcorn (Skinny pop popcorn)
  • Edible Ewoks (teddy grahams)
  • Droid parts (chex mix)
  • Ewok snacks (gummy bears)
  • Carbonite, complete with Han Solo (blue jello)
  • Thermal Detonators (Caramel Balls)
  • Han’s Rolos (Rolos)
  • Dark Side chips (blue corn tortilla chips)
  • 7 Leia Dip
  • Yoda soda 

I found the silver rocks at Michaels, they were only .29 cents a bag on clearance and I thought they would make perfect moon rocks!

The food labels were so fun! You can find them here: http://overthebigmoon.com/may-the-4th-be-with-you-ideas-and-free-food-printables/

When I saw this R2D2 balloon at Party City, I couldn’t resist it! (These things happen when Mike lets me go shopping alone!)Everyone loved it!  Emilia even had to give it a big hug and kiss!

Now onto Dinner

These Napkin wraps were a big hit with both the kids and adults! Find them here:

For Dinner we had:

  • Force fruit
  • Vader veggies
  • Jabba the Pizza Hut (pizza from a local restaurant)
  • Hutt Dogs (chicken hot dogs)
  • Han Burgers (a mix of beef, chicken and veggie burgers)
  • Bow- Ba Fett Pasta (salmon pasta salad, with bow shaped pasta)
  • Princess Leia buns

We also had roasted corn and a cheese and cracker platter.

The kids had a blast running around and swimming in the pool. the forecast called for rain, which it did! Thankfully it only lasted about 10 minutes, so everyone was able to head back outside and enjoy the sun!

We got his cake from a local baker that we’ve used for the last few years! Frankie chose banana chocolate chip for the flavour. It was absolutely delicious! It tasted as good as it looked! If you live in the GTA or Durham region you need to check out Lola’s Cakery! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lolas-Cakery/237897109588242?fref=ts

He really did like his cake, he was just unsure about the sparklers we put on it!

Star Wars PartyAll in all it was a great day!

We all had so much fun celebrating this little guy, who is growing way too fast! 

I’m so glad he loved his party and now my thoughts have already shifted to a certain little girl’s first birthday in November! (Someone please take away my computer, Pinterest here I come!!)
