I don’t usually do a theme for my daughters’ birthday parties, but Rowan is obsessed with Star Wars and once we decided to make her an R2-D2 cake I couldn’t resist checking out Pinterest (you can find me here) and I just couldn’t resist giving a Star Wars birthday party theme a try.
First, the decorations:
- the birthday banner that I made last year
- balloons from a local party store (we give each family that comes to the party at least one balloon to take home)
- and a little something that I made with some scrapbooking paper that I had on hand and a free font that I found online
To keep the guests – we had 11 children ranging from newborn to almost 4 years old, plus their moms – busy and happy we had a little craft time where they got to decorate their own Stormtrooper mask, which doubled as their party favour:
and a little “stick the ears on Yoda” game that I made (my oldest and her best friend painted the background the day before):
And of course, the R2-D2 cake! I baked my carrot cake and my husband did the carving. I did the icing and he did the detail work. We were quite happy with how it turned out!
And so was the birthday girl!
