Having an awesome Star Wars birthday party might seem beyond even Yoda’s skills. But with our help, you can have a legendary party that will be the talk of the galaxy.
(To get started, get inspired by these incredible Star Wars food creations!)
Send themed invites to every last Jedi! Craft your own or use these easy printables from Cutesiness. They can be personalized with the time and date of the party, and the name of the birthday kiddo. The printable set can even be downloaded instantly—which is great when you’re short on time.

Set the Scene
Create the atmosphere of a galaxy far, far away by decorating with Star Wars party swag. Set a perfect table with a themed tablecloth, plates and cups, table decor and confetti. Don’t forget the birthday banner!
(You can actually grab a set of printable decor from Amanda’s Parties to Go on Etsy, which also has handy food labels like “Yoda Soda.”)
When the Force Assembles…
Hand out character masks to all the kids as they arrive. All you need are elastic and a stapler to complete the project. Then set everyone to work making simple (and safe) lightsabers using pool noodles plus electrical tape and duct tape for the handles.
Play your favorite party games with Star Wars spins. You can pin the lightsaber on Darth Vader, or wrap up a Saran Wrap ball (ahem, Death Star) with Skywalker-themed prizes. You can also use printable Bingo cards for some extra Star Wars birthday fun.
These are the desserts you’re looking for! Start with one of our best vanilla cupcake recipes, and add an adorable cupcake topper. Or use Star Wars cookie cutters with our most-loved sugar cookies and watch ’em all disappear into hyperspace.

You can’t have your party at the Cantina, but you can offer a great selection of drinks. This collection of our top kiddie cocktails serves up plenty of ideas. And why not add some Star Wars party pizzazz by using printable labels to turn water or soda into Star Wars characters? (We call the R2 bottle!)
The Best Birthday Cake
For our Jedi (Cake) Masters—try baking a BB-8 or Darth Vader-shaped cake. This guide to using fondant makes it simple.
When the guests return to their home planet, every space traveler will need treats for the road. To keep the Star Wars theme, use colorful character bag covers and pack your bags with edible party favors that they’ll love.
