With the 7th episode of the saga (The Force Awakens) set for release this month, there’s never been a better time to throw a Star Wars themed party.

Whether your child wants to celebrate their birthday as a Jedi, or you just want to have some mates around for a Star Wars marathon, this is the blog you are looking for. These ideas are easy, affordable and guaranteed to help you and your guests have a blast.

Death Star Piñata

One sure-fire way to get your star wars party fully armed and operational is with a Death Star piñata.

  1. Inflate a balloon and use papier mâché paste to glue strips of newspaper to the balloon until it is completely covered.
  2. After the glue has dried to create a hard surface, you can paint it grey or cover it with silver foil to create that authentic Death Star look.
  3. When you are certain that the surface of the piñata is hard enough, cut a hole at the bottom and burst the balloon to fill it with your choice of goodies.
  4. After you cover the hole, the piñata should be ready to hang.

To further keep with the Star Wars theme, you could provide your guests with plastic lightsabers to have-at the piñata.

TIE Fighter Marshmallow Treats


 Throwing a Star Wars shindig doesn’t necessarily mean you have to fork out for the official merchandise. A quick, easy and delicious Star Wars snack is the TIE Fighter marshmallow treat.

All you need are your choice of square biscuits and/or wafers, as well as round marshmallows. Then, use icing to attach a biscuit on either side of the marshmallow to create the TIE Fighter shape.

Stormtrooper Bowling

A great Star Wars twist on a classic game is Stormtrooper Bowling. You’ll need a printer, a set of 10 plastic pins (you can pick these up at your local toy store) and (of course) a ball. Print out 10 images of Stormtrooper helmets (easily found on Google), cut them out and glue them on to the pins. The kids are sure to have a great time bowling down these famous Star Wars foes.

To add an extra objective to the game, you can add a ‘Darth Vader’ pin that is worth extra points.

R2-D2 Dispenser

If you have a water cooler, Eski, popcorn dispenser or any other kind of cylindrical server, you can get it decked out like a droid in no time. To create your own R2-D2 dispenser, print out strips of blue and white, as well as the trademark circles for the ‘R2’s radar eye and holographic projector, and stick these to the dispenser.

You can also use this method to create R2-D2 bins for the party.

Even if you decide to go with all these ideas for your party, guests will find a lack of cake disturbing. If you need a stunning Star Wars themed cake for your celebration (or any other occasion for that matter) be sure to give this Mackay cake design business a call.
