We decided to celebrate with a Star Wars™ Party during Thanksgiving break.
We invited friends and it was a ton of fun! The boys had a great time watching “Return of the Jedi” with their lightsaber yogurt swords, cosmic cereal stars, Princess Leia buns, Star Wars™ Cereal Bar, and more! I can’t wait to share all of the details with you!
And now for even more behind the scenes details on our party including free printables, a recipe, and a tutorial!
I used wooden crates covered in burlap to give a Jedi/Yoda vibe to the tablescape. Both of which I already had leftover from another party. $1 frames and printables were perfect to label the foods and tie everything together.
I created a printable invite that you can use for your next Star Wars™ party! Here is a blank version. You can add text to using your favorite photo editing program (I use PicMonkey).

I didn’t grow up watching Star Wars™ like most of my friends. I actually didn’t see any of them until I was adult. My husband jokes that I was probably the first adult to ever watch them in order starting with Episode 1 in 2001 and seeing them sequentially after that, ha! Did you grow up loving the series?
May The Force Be With You!
