Star Wars Party for Luke

We have just had the best birthday party ever!

Grandson Luke turned one year old on the 18th, and because his Dad (my eldest son Matthew) is a Star Wars addict, the theme for Luke’s birthday had to be Star Wars! You must know the conversation from the movie between father and son! This pillow is one of four Star Wars themed ones that are on Matthew and Rebecca’s sofa!

Luckily Matthew has a very accommodating wife who not only wanted to make Luke’s birthday special, she also wanted it to be a celebration for Matthew as well. After all, Luke is the treasured son after two beautiful daughters!

Here is the birthday invitation.

So the party planning began!

With the help of ‘Pinterest’ Rebecca began creating. One of the first things was a converted flip lid rubbish bin!

Isn’t it amazing! A perfect R2D2!

And who would have thought that swimming pool ‘noodles’ and a little tape would make great light sabers? Look at this container full just waiting for all the little Jedis to have a training session during the party.

And when ‘Luke’ the children’s party entertainer arrived, they all had a great time learning to ‘use the force’.

The best purchase I felt that Rebecca had made in planning for the party was a long roll of black plastic. Originally designed for cutting into lengths as table clothes, Rebecca also splattered white paint on lengths cut for the walls to create Galaxy scenes.

The main lounge became the dessert and Cake table and also the children’s dining area.

The dining room became ‘Hutt Dog Station’ where we had yummy Hutt Dogs, cute little Han Burgers and delicious Pizza the Hutts to eat!

The outside deck area became ‘Fueling Station Ergo’

And Rebecca purchased Star Wars accessories and labels to compliment the rooms that were set up for the party. Just look at the amazing entrance and backdrop for the photo booth.ย  The Fabulous backdrop was created by ‘Little Dimple Designs’.

And here is Dad, Darth Vader with his three children! (I told you it was the best Star Wars themed party ever!)

Now no party is complete without take home bags for the children. Just have a look at what these children got!

And that wasn’t all…

Very cute shaped cookies! Four different designs in each bag! And those cookies and even bigger ones were available for adults too, along with other theme based food ๐Ÿ™‚

These were all on the sweets table or dessert table ๐Ÿ™‚

There’s those cookies again and some with coloured fondant on top!

Leia’s buns were yummy cinnamon buns. Isn’t it amazing what you can create with a bit of imagination!

And now the masterpiece…

That is the most amazing cake! Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker on the top just make it! And it was the most yummy chocolate mud cake, rich and very moist! So delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ Many thanks to ‘Cakes by Koo and Cupcakes too’

The table setting for the cake was perfect! The labels were from a purchase Rebecca made from ‘Hello My Sweet’ via Etsy.

Singing Happy Birthday to Luke. I am sure he knew the day was all about him ๐Ÿ™‚

The adults drinks were well catered for, but look at these very cute drinks for the children.

No kids party is complete nowadays without a Piรฑata. Rebecca made her own one to fit the Star Wars theme. Nothing better than a Death Star to destroy and free the goodies from inside!

Friends and family were invited to Luke’s first birthday and each family group made the effort to dress appropriately with the Star Wars theme. They all helped to make the party extra special ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_0743.JPG

How cute are these two little girls! And Mum and Dad look pretty great too ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_0744-0.JPG

We had a few Princess Leia’s at the party but all the outfits were slightly different. This little Chewbucca was fabulous at nine months old ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_0746.JPG

Yes, I think grown men like to dress up too ๐Ÿ˜‰

We all had a fabulous time. And I am sure that Luke knew he was the main ‘little man’ of the day. He loved it! Not a tear all day but a very happy little boy who thrived on all the attention.

Mummy Rebecca is a very clever lady and she can now have a well deserved time of rest and relaxation. Three children’s parties in two months are over and each one very successful!

Until next year Rebecca!

May the Force be with you ๐Ÿ™‚
