Here’s what Erin said about planning the party- “When our first son was born, a really funny thing happened in the delivery room. My husband turned to me, holding our sweet Luke, and whispered, ‘Luke, I am your Father.’ Mind you, we did not name our son after any of the Star Wars movies, but my hubby knew I’d need a quick laugh, and boy did he get one.

While in the hospital, I dreamed up this birthday party for my then newborn son. I’ve waited 4 years to pull off his “May the Fourth be with You” party and what fun we had!

I wanted to have a party where the kids didn’t just sit around and do typical birthday stuff like open gifts and eat cake. So, we made a Jedi Training Course out of hula hoops, soccer cones, a mini slide and fabric tunnels.

Once the kids made it through the obstacle course, they were awarded with their very own, hand sewn, Jedi or Princess robe and Light Saber. The Jedi’s wore brown hooded robes and the princess’ wore white gowns with metallic gold belts and buns made out of yarn and a headband. They looked adorable!

We then played pin the “saber” on Yoda and awarded the kids with a Star Wars sticker. We made a Pez Toss out of antique Star Wars character Pez dispensers. (Think of those games at the county fair…) The kids loved this game because they got to try to rope the characters with their glow in the dark bracelets (another prize!).

We had a lunch break, where we served Jedi Fuel Packs, which were silver cupcake boxes filled with a Darth Dog (hot dog), Princess Lays (potato chips), and Light Sabers (green grapes on a long toothpick on the end of a foil covered wine cork). Jedi Juice was served in individual R2D2 and Darth Vader sippy cups and for the adults, we provided Yoda Soda (Sprite) and Wookie Water.

Once the Jedi’s were fueled up, we served cupcakes, dusted with edible glitter and sugar Yoda’s and Darth Vaders and of course, Sabers.

To end the party, we had the children take a whack at the Darth Vader pinata. Each kiddo got to take home their robe and saber, along with a Star Wars puzzle and their Jedi Juice cup.”
