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. We’re covering all the items you need to throw a stellar Star Wars birthday party: from Star Wars food ideas to Jedi-level party activities.
Star Wars Party Invitations
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.
Make a Star Wars Birthday Cake
The cake is the crowning glory of every birthday party, so make yours unforgettable. It’s simple to use our best birthday cake recipes and then add a custom cake topper. For our Jedi (Cake) Masters—try baking a BB cake that’s decorated in Reese’s Pieces.
Set the Scene with Star Wars Decorations
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 and life-sized Stormtrooper balloons!
Use the Force
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) lightsaber popsicle holders using cut felt.
Try Star Wars-Inspired Drinks
You can’t have your party at the Cantina, but you can offer a great selection of drinks. Yoda Soda is a must. Or try a kiddie cocktail to replicate your own cantina. 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!)
Star Wars-Themed Party Games
Play your favorite party games with Star Wars spins. Start the day off with pin the lightsaber on Darth Vader. Then, gather the troops for a Rebel vs. Imperial battle of Star Wars cornhole and a lightsaber battle with DIY pool noodle lightsabers. Finish the day off with these printable Bingo cards for some extra Star Wars birthday fun.
Star Wars-Themed Sweet Treats
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. Oh, and don’t forget some of these other Star Wars food creations on the side.
Star Wars Party Favors
When the guests return to their home planet, every space traveler will need treats for the road. To keep the Star Wars theme, pack these cute character drawstring bags with edible party favors that they’ll love. Be sure to throw in some other galactic goodies like Star Wars rubber bracelets, customized Star Wars birthday t-shirts and an official Jedi training certificate, too.
