Wyatt's Star Wars Party

This post is LIGHT YEARS LATE!!
It's almost time for me to begin obsessing on Wyatt's next birthday.
Who am I kidding? Almost.
Here is the pin board I've already created on the subject....

But, I digress.
Yesterday, I had a good friend ask for some Star Wars party tips, and I realized I had yet to get around to blogging Wyatt's 3rd Birthday Party, (which was last September!) Thank you Kristen for the kick in the butt!

Here we go...There are a ton of pictures and details, so I am just going to post them all and then add the links at the very end.

Invites and printablesAnders Ruff Designs - Maureen and Adria are my go to girls in this department! Fabulous to work with and every one of their designs is adorable!!
Darth Vader cake pan - vintage, my mom kept it from my brother's 1981 birthday! But it's for sale here on Ebay
Yoda & Leia tees and ruffled party streamers - made by me, for sale here
Oreo Cupcake recipe - seriously one of the best cupcakes ever!!
Star Wars metal lunch box and cookie cutters - Williams Sonoma
Williams Sonoma also makes the Star Wars pancake molds I featured in this post.
Most of my food/drink/dessert inspiration came from The Star Wars Cookbook and this blog post
Darth Vader pinata & Star Wars temporary tattoos - Amazon
Star Wars table confetti, place mats, straw circles - Made by Hallmark, but I found them all sold together in a big punch out book at Walmart in the party aisle.
Oversized Star Wars coloring pages - Barnes & Noble
Wyatt's FAVORITE Star Wars Themed gifts??
1. This Book from Grammie & Papa. For reals. We read it every night and I can tell you Wookie lineage if you'd like!
2. These bath toys from his friend Beck. FAB FAB FAB!! So old school authentic, and the keep him the bath long enough to actually get clean! 
3. R2-D2 Potato Head from his friend Carter. He also got the Yoda Potato Head. Considering Wyatt's other obsession is Toy Story...these presents were like the BEST of both worlds!
4. The original watercolor Ewok painting from Kate & Paul....I think the artist is on Etsy. I'm gonna have to research for you!

This party was so fun...for both me to plan, and for the birthday boy to celebrate! I hope this post and the pics help you plan a Galactic Event too! Hostess With The Mostess has some more great Star Wars Party ideas including a Jedi Robe pattern. Totally wanted to makes these, but ran out of time! I also really wanted to make a "big girl" version of these dresses for the party. But again, ran out of time. Someone...please do it! Too cute.

Wow, you did a great job! I am planning my daughter's first birthday party right now and you inspired me to take the creativity up a notch for her Polka Dot theme (all centered around the most perfect party dress ever)

Jill said...
