how to throw a simple star wars party

how to throw a simple star wars partyVivi just finished up kindergarten, and to celebrate with her classmates, we threw a simple little Star Wars party in the backyard.  It's not the most elaborate thing I have done, for sure, but it was easy, fun, and Vivi declared it "the best day ever," so I think that accomplishes the most important thing, right?

Here is a round-up of the items we had on hand to make it extra fun.  We used these tablecloths as a backdrop (would be great for a photo booth) and strung up some of these star garlands.  Vivi really, really wanted space helmets, and Chip picked up a couple at party city, but these are less expensive, and you can order them ahead of time.

easy star wars party ideasWe turned the playhouse into Yoda's Swamp with a little hangout out of the sun.  I made that sign out of cardboard, and we added some foliage/greenery and camo netting.  We also had some of the water toys out for the kiddos, and they had a great time playing in the water in between snacks.

I love that vintage poster, too - so fun, and you can use it later in a bedroom.  Can't wait to show you where ours is going!

Hope that helps if you have a Star Wars loving kid in your life!  Also, check out our luau party from last year here!
