Star Wars: The Force Awakens Birthday Party – Part I Decor & Food

My son’s preschool friend is a major Star Wars fan – so of course I had to help his Mom throw the most epic Star Wars party ever!!  He told us his favorite characters were Kylo Ren, Rey and Poe Dameron so I focused on the characters in the newest movie in the Star Wars universe – The Force Awakens.  I designed a version of this awesome invite to send out to his friends.

They have an amazing party space in their garage and we really wanted to darken the space and transform it into a space worthy of Star Wars.

And I think we accomplished that!  We painting 9ft. sections of black paper with white dots to create a “star” effect.  My friend and husband hung up the paper at one end of the garage creating an amazing activity space for the party.  A stand up Kylo Ren and BB8 as well as an awesome custom Star Wars crawl poster gave it an extra cool punch.

I designed the poster with text written by the birthday boy’s mom and had it printed at Staples as an engineering print – 3′ x 6′.  It was really cool and something that I think he will appreciate more when he looks back at these pictures.

Another cool touch were the balloons on the ceiling.  My friend blew up over 200 balloons that filled the garage ceiling and added to the ambiance.

Here is a better picture of the cake and cupcakes for the birthday treat.  The cake and cupcakes were made by a local bakery.  We found the Kylo Ren cupcake stands on Amazon.
