It’s no secret that Star Wars is the dominate force in the Schuplin household. Much to Daddy Michael’s chagrin. I hosted a Star Wars baby shower for my sister. Then, earlier this year, I threw her a Star Wars birthday party. And now? Now we have children old enough to know who ‘arth Vader’ is. And no, that wasn’t a typo.
It all started when Aunt Rachael started asking Michael who was in her new tattoo. Things then moved to imitating the ‘pew pew’, and finally came to a DVR full of Disney XD. Disney XD is all up in my business! The life of a mom. Amiright?
Which means we knew all about Star Wars Rebels. I set the series recording before the words even had a chance to escape from my sister’s mouth. What I wasn’t aware of was the DVD being released exclusively at Walmart (10/3 – 10/13). Which is why I rounded up the troops and we partied. We partied like it was Comic-Con. There was plenty of nerd attire and Han Solo even showed up. Which led to the nerd joke of the evening since I was a pregnant Princess Leia
Of course there were cupcakes displayed on the Millennium Falcon cake plates Michael HAD TO make for me. I needed them flanking my Star Destroyer centerpiece! My party would have been incomplete without them because I am a diva. (The SUPER DUPER cheap Millennium Falcon tutorial!)
My pride and joy TIE Fighters were simply a Rolo, 2 peppermint patties, and a toothpick through the center.
I used a rhyming generator
to create fun labels for the stars of Star Wars Rebels.
- Chopper Whoppers- Whoppers candy
- Sabine Greens- green vegetable platter
And, of course, my Jedi water supply.
I also served:
- Lightsabers- chocolate covered pretzel rods
- Fruitsabers- fruit kabobs
Party tip: If you are in a pinch, fold a color coordinating paper napkin in thirds and tape it to your water bottles. Easy peasy!
Not only do I like to keep my utensils and drinks away from the food, my supporting station served a dual purpose. A purpose you will see towards the end of this party plan!
The suspense! Ahhh!
Normally you send guests home with a party favor tag that says ‘may the force be with you’. That’s just what you do for a Star Wars party. Except for this one. For this party I went with ‘it is your destiny’ tags on the blue bubble wands with grey duct tape handles because I set the favors next to my utensil ‘may the forks be with you’ sign. You don’t have to do the same unless you are a whackadoodle like myself.
Party tip: You do NOT need to purchase pre-made Star Wars labels on Etsy. I repeat, you do NOT need to spend money on something as simple as labels because the Star Wars font is FREE. Load that puppy into PicMonkey and print your labels on cardstock!
My guests’ ages might have ranged from 2-nearly 30 but everyone dressed up. There were lightsabers, buckets, masks, costumes, and my ironic husband dressed up in his Trekkie garb. You do not have to spend oodles of cash on the dress up station if you don’t have a closet full of toys to begin with. My friends brought .99 glow sticks for lightsabers, a few found plastic Stormtrooper masks for $5 each, and I spent maybe $5 on 3 light sabers.
You will save a lot of money if you think outside of the box.
How about a quick and dirty lightsaber tutorial since I brought it up?
- I purchased a package of 3 craft foam sticks. (40% off $4.99)
- Then I covered the sticks with 3 strips of blue duct tape. (Previously purchased)
- And I finished off the handle using grey duct tape. (Previously purchased)
See? So simple. So cheap. And, in my opinion, easier than pool noodles when it comes to the hands of little people. I will share the full duct tape tutorial in a few weeks!
I picked up two Inquisitor lightsabers for my door decoration because, well… I am a perfectionist who thought they were pretty rad. I attached them with floral wire before hanging the final piece on the front door. Presentation! Presentation! Presentation!
But wait, that’s not all! All of the Star Wars toys scattered throughout my party plan are made by Hasbro. You will even find them at Walmart.com if you don’t want to head to a physical store. There are a ton of toys out there! Trust me on this one. I hooked my sister’s Christmas up so hard this year. Buy all the toys! Every last one of them!

Now get out there and party!
