the star wars party...

...where we didn't even play the cool "jedi training" game we came up with or the save the universe pin the spaceship game.  but.... the boys had a great time.  :)  the creative imaginations stuff paired with the hallmark stuff was perfect!
the awesome vader candle is from hallmark; i found it @ party city.  (my boys thought that was pretty darn awesome too!)  i made the cupcake wrapper from this pattern paper and this punch and template i downloaded online.  i don't remember where i got it, but i googled "free cupcake wrapper template." 
i made this banner out of this paper (also the same one i used for the invites.)
i made this guy from some hallmark tissue paper & a little cardstock & the piece of pp from creative imaginations.  (ALL of the characters on the banner & hanging from the ceiling and on 10 invites - you can see them in the post below- came from ONE sheet of that paper!)
the entry table with goodie bags & "vader ades" and "yoda sodas" for the kids.
i made the goody bags from inexpensive bags from party city & printed on them.  the free star wars font can be found HERE.  i also used this font on the invites.  the storm trooper is from this fabulous paper.
np party is complete without cupcakes, right?  (at least not at this house anyway!)
the darth vader pinata came open on the 3rd try!  the kids went nuts!


Edited to add this.  i totally forgot the pic of this.  that awesome little organizer for the plates & stuff was a steal at costco!

  7. Wow add party planner extraordinaire to your resume, most impressive! I'm right there with you on the cupcakes, my family calls me the cupcake queen. :) How can you ever go wrong with small cakes covered in icing goodness with limitless decorating potential, I say you can't? That soda idea rocks too, thanks for sharing- too much fun.
