lego star-wars-birthday-party-millennium-falcon-cake

Remember my Lego Star Wars invitations?  Well the party was GREAT, and I’m FINALLY blogging about it.  It was SO much fun and turned out just great.  I didn’t quite get everything done I wanted to (I never do it seems) but at some point you always have to stop and go with what you’ve got!

Because our children attend a charter school (for kids on the autistic spectrum) over 20 mins away we’ve had bad luck getting guests to show up to our house for parties.  A lot of their schoolmates live in the other direction and sometimes even farther away than us.  So we decided that having another party at our house would be futile, and so I picked a park right next to the school and set the party date and time for just after school got out on a Thursday.  We ended up with about half the class so it worked out great!

lego-star-wars-birthday-party-food-table-cake

I had fun laying out the food and the table but then just as it was time to take pictures the sun peeked out over the gap in the pavilion and lite up the table just WRONG!  So the pictures are all full of bright red reflections from the tablecloth, and shadows and bright lights.  No matter what I do I just can’t get good pictures to save my life of my pictures!  GAH!  Someday I’ll get it all right!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-food-leia-rolls-carbonite-hans-solo

My favorite part of the overall decor was my Lego block carbonite Hans Solo!  No one else at the party was nerdy enough to appreciate it fully.  I cut it out of vinyl with my new Silhouette machine.  And I love love LOVED it!  And the first of my themed food…  Leia Rolls!  I opted not to put the frosting on the cinnamon rolls so you could see the roll design, I didn’t want to cover up what made them look like Leia’s hair!  On to the rest of the food!

You can also see my table layout.  Again, I’m still figuring out how to best get amazing, and pretty, party layouts.  Clearly I need to play with more height next time!  In fact I cut out the backdrop and the pendant banner I made because they just looked TERRIBLE!  Super high, with all this space between the table/food and them…  Bad bad BAD!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-food-light-sabers-space-rocks

I had SO much fun coming up with food that fit the theme of our party!  Pixie sticks for Light Sabers was the obvious choice (that or candy dipped pretzels) but did you know that they are SUPER hard to find these days?  I went to 7 different stores!  SEVEN!  I choose to go with pixie sticks for speed, in the end it might’ve been faster to dip all the pretzel sticks in chocolate!  And Chocolate candy rocks for Space rocks!  All the images for the labels are from screen shots of the various Lego Star Wars games!  Some where harder to find good pictures of than others, so making the labels took DAYS longer than I thought it would.

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-food-padme-popcorn-wookie-balls

The favorite food of the adults by FAR was my white chocolate Padme Popcorn!  Good thing I made a HUGE batch of it!  My favorite title is my Wookie Balls (get it?  No?  Well it’s funny…)!  Here is one of the area’s I ended up falling short.  My PLAN was to make homemade hostess coconut covered Snowballs , but in brown of course (get it?  Big brown coconut covered balls?  GET IT???).  I ended up just getting donuts holes, fast and easy, but not quite a fun.

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-food-hoth-pops-boba-fett-bounty

MY favorite food to EAT was the Hoth Pops (if your not a big geek like me it’s the Snow covered planet!)!  I have to admit I’m not a cake ball fan (shhh don’t tell anyone) but I DO love oreo balls, so that’s what I made!  I covered them in white chocolate and, not that you can see them, edible sparkles (I was SO glad there was leftovers, I made about 50 and I probably ate HALF of them)!   Then I used chocolate gold coins for my Boba Fett Bounty!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-food-space-dust-edible-ewoks

I used Nerds candy for Space Dust, I kind of wished I could’ve found something less colorful, but they are the perfect size and so fun to eat!  And Sour Patch Kids for my Edible Ewoks.  These were the kids favorites.  I have a picture of one little boy with a plate FULL of these, about 1/2 an inch THICK.  And it wasn’t his first plateful!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-food-yodo-soda-c-3po-h20

I LOVED the Yoda Soda, it’s sprite and lime sherbert mixed together.  It is SUCH a lovely color, and I have to say it tasted pretty darn good.  One of my favorite parts of the party prep was my C-3PO H2O.  I had this idea to spray paint the water bottles Gold.  My husband said it wouldn’t work, but I had high hopes.  They turned out LOVELY!  Just lovely!  I am SO in love with these.  I think I’ll have more spray painted water bottles in the future!  They worked great, and of course when you take the lid off you have nice non-painted plastic for drinking.  My kids LOVED drinking the special GOLD water.  But my oldest did tell me I should have named it C-3PO oil, because he wouldn’t drink water- silly me!

lego-star-wars-birthday-party-millennium-falcon-carved-fondant-cake

And the centerpiece my Lego Millennium Falcon!  I kind of wish I’d had another hour to spend on this, but I always feel that way when it comes to my cakes.  They are NEVER good enough for me and my vision, but it’s recognizable, cute and the birthday boy loved it.  THAT’S what really matters in the end.  And of course it tasted GREAT!  He picked Strawberry, I am SO glad I finally have an AMAZING strawberry cake recipe.  It’s taken years, but I’m really in love with it now!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-food-millennium-falcon-cake

And the back of the cake…  The park was sunny and warm but we did have a wind come whipping through the pavilion where we were set up and I didn’t think we’d be able to pull off candles.  But with the help of my dad holding his jacket on one side and someone else holding a plate on the other we were able to get the candles to work JUST long enough for him to blow them out!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-craft-homemade-light-sabers

When you think six high functioning autistic kindergartners at a party you automatically think “how am I going to keep them occupied?”.  I knew by having the party at the park that would keep them occupied for a few mins, but these boys don’t have a long attention span.  SO I came up with some fun hands on crafts.

The first, and by FAR the most popular was decorating their own light sabers.  I went to my FAVORITE store (Home Depot) and bought some 9 ft long foam pipe covers.  I cut them down to 3 ft each and then covered the bottom 6 inches with some SHINY silver Duct Tape (not the brand duct tape, but tape for ducts…  Then I had Duct tape (the brand) in 4 different bright colors (red, yellow, green and blue) for the boys to decorate their own light sabers with!  At the beginning everyone went with one color, but after my dad created his own multi-colored light saber it was all the rage.  We soon had stripes, spirals, etc…

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-silhouette-temporary-tattoo

I used my Silhouette to create Lego Star Wars Temporary Tattoos for all the kids!  love love LOVE them!  The kids did too!  My son has been using up the extras over the last 2 weeks.  I’m down to my last 3, and I’m pretty sure I’ll have to make more once they are officially gone!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-craft-galaxy-playdough

For a sit down craft, for the quieter attendee’s, I had Galaxy Play dough.  I found it on Pinterest a few weeks ago (LOVE that site) and thought it would be PERFECT!  I made homemade BLACK play dough (salt) and bought a ton of different colored glitter.  Then I let each child have a handful of the play dough and picking their own glitter colors (or some of EVERY color) they got to knead the glitter into the dough!  Then I had containers for them to take their new, shiny, galaxy play dough home with!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-death-star-pinata

And of course it wouldn’t be one of my kids birthday’s without a homemade pinata.  I made a death star pinata!  Using a punch ball to get the perfectly round shape, and after a few layers cutting out a circle, filling the pinata, and putting the circle BACK on, but inverted I created a Death Star.  My mistake with this one?  I sprayed it with metallic silver paint and then when I went to draw a bunch of black detailed lines onto it with my sharpie it wouldn’t write!  GRRRRR!  It was so shiny and glossy the pen wouldn’t work on it!  So it was a pretty bland/plain pinata.  I should’ve gone with a matte grey…  NEXT TIME!

Lego-Star-Wars-birthday-party-playing-with-his-teacher

A HUGE treat for my sweet birthday boy is that his kindergarten teacher came too.  She is just amazing, I can’t sing her praises enough.  She had a class of 13 autistic boys all year (and it’s all day kindergarten) and she was absolutely incredible!  I love that she was right there playing light sabers with the boys the whole party.  I wish she was moving up every year with my sweet little boy, but alas, I have to leave her for the future kindergartners to love!  I can count on one hand the number of people that TRULY “get” and love my son, and she is one of them.

So a totally fun and successful party!  My parents ended up being in town and my sister and her family came too, so we had a great turnout, plenty of food and craft supplies and everyone had a great time.  Success!

  1. Amazing! The food, the decorations, the cake, everything! What a tremendous amount of WORK, but it looks fabulous!

  2. This is fantastic!!! So creative and I can’t even imagine the time is takes to make such amazing cakes as you do. Your kids are lucky to have such a fun mama as you!!

    • Thanks Brooke! Making cakes for my kids is the whole reason I got into the cake world. I still love doing it for them. It’s fun to see what they come up with and what they want me to make every year. Next year? The girls… We’ll see what they come up with for me!

  3. I am always amazed at the awesome birthday parties you throw! I used to do them all the time for my two oldest boys. But the two youngest prefer simple, like going bowling or golfing. I’m looking forward to doing some fun girl parties in a few years. :)

    • thanks so much Kara! Last year I overdid it with 4 parties in one year, from now on it’s half one year half the next. But the two who had the small family parties this year were pretty bummed out. They love the parties as much as I do! I know that as they get older it will probably end, but I sure love it while I can! Girl parties are pretty darn fun! No need to wait a few years, I did 6 month parties when they were little… That’s only 4 months away!

  4. What a lucky boy! That is an awesome spread you have goin’ on there!

    My favorite part is the pixie stix for light sabers…too cute! Great party Ashlee!

  5. What a fun party Ashlee! So many awesome details! I looks like a ton of fun!
    xoxo,
    Amy

  6. I love it all! My little boy is a Star Wars enthusiast so I’ll be saving this for a future party. I especially love the C3PO water bottles. How cute! You probably don’t remember me but I sat by you at the CBC last year in Vanessa’s class. Love your blog!

    • I love the lego star wars shirt he’s wearing in one of your posts! Too fun. Let me know if you use any of it! It was such a fun party. I love the water bottles too, quick and easy too! Wasn’t there supposed to be another CBC this year? I have no idea what happened to it! I’m going to EVO again this year though, are you doing any more blog conferences?

    • For this month on my Facebook page I have a free download of my Star Wars Food Labels for anyone who “likes” my fan page! http://www.facebook.com/imtopsyturvy

  7. LOVE IT! My oldest is a Star Wars fanatic, too, and would’ve LOVED this party! We did a similar theme for his birthday in March, but um, I’m not quite as talented or creative as are. ;) I bought everything at Zurcher’s! :D Really though, AWESOME!

    • It was SUCH a fun party to do. It’s not about being super talented or creative it’s about taking the enormous amounts of time that it takes to put it all together! Not always worth it, but if you like doing it than it can be!

  8. Sara @ Mom Endeavors says:

    Awesome, Ashlee! I’ve just pinned & stumbled this! With a husband who grew up loving Star Wars and now a little one who seems to be following in his footsteps, I know that I will be planning a Star Wars party at some point down the road! Love all the ideas! And, as always, the cake is fantastic! :)

    • Thanks Sara! It was such a fun party to create. With 3 boys (or soon to be three) I’m sure I have many Star Wars parties in my future! Let me know if you end up doing it, I could easily send you my labels (can’t sell them because of copyright issues, but I’m sure SHARING is okay, right?)

    • For this month only on my Facebook page I have a free download of my Star Wars Food Labels for anyone who “likes” my fan page! feel free to pass on my link! http://www.facebook.com/imtopsyturvy

  9. what brand tattoo paper did you use? I want to try it but amazon has lots of bad reviews and i am not sure which brand to try.

    • I used the silhouette tattoo paper. It’s more expensive than the others, but works great. I’ve been trying to find another brand that’s cheaper to use, but like you haven’t read good enough reviews to risk it!

  10. You rock my world! This is amazing!!

    • Awww! Thanks Alison! That’s so sweet. It was SO much fun to put together! Next up? MY birthday (that is if the baby doesn’t come early)…

  11. Oh my GOSH! This is fantastic! I seriously want to do this for my hubby’s birthday! He would TOTALLY flip out!!! I love love LOVE it! :)

  12. Lynda P. says:

    Amazing party, and so creative. Love your cakes too. What program do you usually use for your food/favor labels?

    • I designed them in Photoshop and cut them with my Silhouette machine. This is the first time I’ve done them, they took a LONG time, because of the various images I wanted to use. Next time it will go faster (I hope!)

  13. Oh wow Ashlee! You have some mad skillz!!! That cake is incredible. Featuring tomorrow on Sew Dang Cute!

  14. Oh these are so cute. I’m planning one for end of July for my son. I was wondering if you could share your tags/labels for the food????

    • Thank you so much! I’m not sure about copyright laws. I made mine using a star wars font and images from the lego star wars game and created them on Photoshop. I think I could share them if they were just the words, having the images on them causes problems. I’ll ask a few people that might know for advice

    • For this month only on my Facebook page I have a free download of my Star Wars Food Labels for anyone who “likes” my fan page! http://www.facebook.com/imtopsyturvy

  15. I’m doing a Lego Star Wars party for my son in a few weeks and hit the ideas jackpot from your site!

  16. Hey girl! This entire party was SO clever, and I featured it on my blog today. Here is the link:

    http://www.oopseydaisyblog.com/2011/06/wednesdays-wowzers-4.html

    Thanks for inspiring!
    ~Alison

  17. Wow! Your party and efforts look amazing. Every child has a smile and your creativity is inspirational! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you so much! It was such a fun party to throw, and the birthday boy and friends loved it. It doesn’t get better than that, right?

  18. MELINDA says:

    I LOVE THE B-DAY IDEAS. I LOOKED THROUGH YOUR SITE BUT COULDN’T FIND A RECIPE FOR THE OREO COOKIE BALLS. CAN YOU SHARE YOUR RECIPE?
    THANKS AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

  19. You are truly an inspiration. I am throwing a lego star wars party later this month and I am so glad I stumbled upon your website. I am really struggling with the printables though. I finally found some lego star wars images, but I can’t seem to make them look right. Could I possibly buy use of your labels?

    • because of copyright issues I can’t sell my labels with the pictures on them. I searched google images to get all my lego starwars images. Individually search each name, eg. lego star wars leia, etc… That’s how I got them all! Good luck and let me know if I can help in another way!

  20. Ashlee, What an Amazing job you have done, and you only used two weeks to prepare!!! YOU ARE AWESOME! I LOVE this party so much!!! And your cake , I also want to see which cake your girls will come up with for you next year. O(∩_∩)O
    BTW, your photos are nice enough for me! ^_^
    and I love collecting awesome birthday party idea on my site and I think you are one of the top creative people ;-)
    Here is my collection link, maybe you want have a look

    • Thank you so much! It was SUCH a fun party to throw! Lego boy is already talking about his next party, too bad he doesn’t understand next year isn’t his turn. Not looking forward to trying to explain that to him when his birthday comes up. Not sure what the girls want yet… My birthday is next though…

  21. Oh wow! I wish I was the birthday boy! At a garage sale recently I picked up a Star Wars thermos and book from 1977. Both really cheap!

  22. Wow! Your cake is amazing & I just love the C3PO water. The spray paint idea was genius. Visiting from Somewhat Simple!

    • Thanks! I felt it was a stroke of GENIUS myself ;) My kids called it golden water and enjoyed the leftover water bottles for a few weeks afterwards!

  23. Hi Ashlee,

    I’m a fan of your blog and this project is AWESOME!

    I’d like to invite you to share your creations sometime at my weekly linking party as well. I am really trying to grow my party to include lots of creative projects just like this one. Thanks for the consideration and here is the direct link if you’d like to check it out :). ~ Tracy
    T.G.I.F. Linky Party

    • Thanks! And thanks for the invitation! I actually haven’t linked up to any parties in over 5 months. It’s just one of those things that got left back as I got busier and busier! But I’ll check it out!

  24. Love the whole party! My son & all three of his kids are huge star war & Lego fans. Following your blog now.I would love for you to show this off at my Wickedly Crafty Saturdays! http://wiccanmakesometoo.blogspot.com/2011/07/wickedly-crafty-saturdays.html

    • Thanks for the invitation. I actually haven’t linked up to anything in over 5 months now! I am thinking about starting up again though. I’m so glad you liked my party!

  25. Love your Millenium Falcon Cake, I made a very similar one last winter for my son’s Star Wars Party, except I used actual legos to emboss the fondant and it worked out well, but not quite as perfect as yours :) your pictures look awesome.

  26. Love all your ideas and love that you are a crazy mom like myself who goes ALL out for their kid’s birthday parties. SO MUCH FUN!!

    • Thanks! I DO love to go all out for parties. I have a few in que for Friday flashback for the parties i threw BEFORE I started blogging. My most overboard is probably the Destroying Angel’s 1st birthday. I thought she might be my last and I went WAY overboard!

  27. The food, the decorations, the cake, everything is amazing!!! Love the whole party!

  28. Looks amazing…my 5 year old nephew would be extremely jealous!!

    • thank you so much! I am really happy with how it turned out! All the guests and the birthday boy were happy so it was a hit! I’m so glad you liked it!

  29. Your boy is so cute. He must be so exciting for next birthday, feel a little bit sorry for him, but I think he will also enjoy the girls birthday, Because you are awesome at it.
    What plan for you birthday? I think you will plan it at LEAST a month , right? ^_^
    BTW , We’re hosting baby shower Cake Contest, do you want to be our Judge? Let’s have some fun together!

  30. I love this whole party! My son is turning 5 in a couple weeks and this was the theme he had picked. I had no idea what to do, but you’ve helped so much. 2 questions: would you be willing to share the food labels you made? And second, how did you carve the legos in the fondant? I’ve been doing our cakes for a few years and I have no idea where to start with this! Thank for your great ideas!

    • I’m glad you and your son like the party! It was a blast. I hope yours turns out as fun as ours did ! I really did throw it together in just under 2 weeks. Once it was over I thought of a few more fun food titles and ideas I could do, but I was really happy with how well it turned out!

      Like I told the other commentors because of copyright issues I can’t sell or share my labels with the images on them. BUT I’m happy to take the images off and send you the circles and ovals without any pictures and you can add your own. I got all of mine off google images. I used photoshop to put mine together so I can send you a photoshop version of my food labels or a Jpg file if you don’t have photoshop.

      For the legos I used a circle frosting tip around the right size (I think 8 maybe??? I don’t have my tips right next to me right now) and cut out all the circles and used clear vanilla to attach them to the squares and rectangles to make them look like legos. Does that help? All with fondant of course.

  31. I am in total awe of your cake. You are a true talent. Please replicate your Star Wars cake for my son’s 5th bday on Saturday ;)

    • HA! If I didn’t have a wedding cake this week (my cousin, so all my family is in town too, hard to make it to all the events AND make a fabulous cake) I would totally come over and help you (if you lived close) Good luck, I’m sure the party will be a huge success!

  32. Mandy Kurschinske says:

    I’d love just the labels, please! I can add my own images.
    The pointers for the cake helped a ton, I think this is going to be so much fun!
    My email for the labels is ellabellabottoms@gmail.com

  33. Loved your cake ut I am not a cake artist so I used your c3 po oil. and your wookie dougnuts and the light sabers. You saved my 8year old boy bday party. Thanks for posting.

  34. So many fun and great ideas for Star Wars lovers! My boys would love to have a party like this! Great job!

  35. I love all the details, but that cake is simply amazing. I thought it would be a good idea to put all the fabulous Star Wars ideas in one place and so I put together a linky party. I’d love for you to link up this amazing party: http://trophyw.blogspot.com/2011/08/star-wars-round-up.html
    Thanks,
    Tara

  36. Darin DeVore says:

    Do you have the time to email over the snack signage (jpeg or photoshop is fine)? They are insanely cool! Doin a party for my 2 boys soon. dmdevore@gmail.com

  37. This party is GENIUS!!! I saw the link on Pinterest and am seriously amazed at all the work you put into the party! I might steal some of your awesome ideas!!! :)

  38. mayra solis says:

    ok great ideas……..but i must know asap how you made that cake…….i have to make it for my sons lego party!!!!!
    I love bday parties and coming up with different ideas ……but you surpassed me :)
    jmij_solis@att.net

    thanks
    mayra

    • Thanks so much, I’m glad you like the party! When you ask about the cake do you mean carving the shape? I just printed off pictures of the lego ship from different angles to help. I started by carving the shape out of an oval cake. Then I frosted it and added fondant. After that I dyed fondant a few more shades of grey, got out some red and just started with one item at a time, I did the top pieces first so they could dry, then I started adding the side detail work. Once I put on the dried roof pieces I just kept adding little details until it was time to leave for the party. I would have loved another hour or two to really get some more detail in, but oh well! If you have a more particular question I’m not answering let me know and I’ll try to go into more detail!

  39. Jennifer S. says:

    Love, love, love your ideas! We are having the same theme in a few weeks. I am going to attempt your Hans Solo in carbonite for a banner….can then use in my son’s room. So, did you just find a pic and open in silhouette? Any tips you might have for the banner would be appreciated. So excited!!

    • I actually cleaned up an image of a carbonite lego hans solo in photoshop first, making it more black and white to help the tracing tool. THEN opened it in silhouette and played around with the trace tool… It was kind of a pain, but totally worth it!

  40. Love all your party details! I’m going to attempt to make the same cake you did, for my sons 4th bday next month. I’m new to the cake world so I was wondering how you did the cake part if you dont mind sharing. Is it all cake or part rice krispy treats? Did you use a circlular cake pan for the main part? Was it hard to get the fondant to mold around the curvatures? Anyway whatever you dont mind sharing when you get a minute would be greatly appreciated by this newbie.

    • It’s all cake. I started with an OVAL cake. I hand drew a silhouette of the ship and cut it out of paper, then laid it over the oval cake and used that as my pattern to cut out the basic shape. Then using a knife I shaped the dome on top and around the windows and stuff… And the secret to getting the fondant to curve around easily is to use high quality fondant (not wilton) I love and use Satin Ice fondant. It’s the best I’ve EVER used, worth every penny. Let me know if you have any other questions! I’m happy to help. (always use a sharp serrated knife and I like to carve my cakes while slightly frozen, also I always work with really dense cakes for carving, NEVER a box mix, usually a form of pound cake)

  41. Hey!

    I love these ideas so much! My son is turning 6 at the end of this month and I’m starting to plan it all out.. we have decided to do a Star Wars Lego party as well. Would you mind sharing these labels with me? I’m the worst at computer graphics. My email is jamieshobe@gmail.com.

    Thanks so much!

    • Sure, I emailed the non image version to you. Because of copyright issues I can’t share or sell the the labels, but I’m happy to share the labels without images. Feel free to add the images yourself, I found mine by doing a google image search.

  42. What an amazing spread. My son said he wanted a Lego Star Wars party and I was like, “Of course that is something they don’t sell at the party store.” I was overwhelmed at first but have found so many great ideas online. I’m so glad I found yours! Could you please email me the labels without images? I have some great stickers I found that I can add that I think will work. I’d appreciate it! juliehollabaugh@yahoo.com

  43. I totally love all your ideas. I am about to throw my son a Star Wars party and am having a hard time finding labels as great as yours. I was wondering if you could tell me where you found them? also, thanks for the great ideas!

  44. What an amazing party! My son who will be turning (5) just announced he wants a Lego Star Wars party. Of course nothing you can buy. I noticed in previous posts you mentioned you would be willing to share your files w/o the images on them. Would you mind sending me photoshop files and jpegs? I know this is a big ask and I really appreciate you even considering it. I work at a place where someone might be willing to help me add the images–if so they would use photshop. If not then I would have to muster with it and would need jpegs. Thank you! Cathy dcduers@msn.com

  45. Hi! Your website is fantastic and your party ideas are just amazing and so creative!! My son is turning 7 and this party is going make his entire year!! I would love if you could share your labels with me. I have been trying to find goof pics of the characters but can’t find any I like. Your labels are perfection!! I would really appreciate it if you could!. :)

  46. Thank you soo much for the description of how you made the cake. Heres mine http://www.flickr.com/photos/laceylady/6366264551/in/photostream
    It was a total success! There were definetly some flaws in my fondant, but my friends, family, and especially my son didnt care one bit. I already have a friend asking me to help her make one for her son next month.

    • it turned out adorable! As long as the birthday boy loves it that’s all that matters, right? But being pleased with it yourself is a great feeling too!

  47. Thank you for such great ideas. This will be perfect for my 4 year olds party next month. Would you bewilling to email me the labels (in know you cant send them with the immage)? It would be a huge start. Amazing!

  48. Wow! Just what I have been looking for. Can you please email me any info of files on this amazing bday party? Your blog is awesome! Thanks. And please let me repay you somehow.?!

  49. Would you be interested in making all of those food signs for me and I will pay yopu for them?
    Birthday in two months.

    Thanks,

  50. YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB, VERY CREATIVE. EVERYTHING HAS SUCH DETAIL MAKING IT ALL SO SPECIAL. I’D LOVE THE FILE TO LABELS, TOTALLY OK WITHOUT IMAGES. THANKS MUCH MY EMAIL IS VITITOEJASON@AOL.COM

  51. Can you please email me the a copy of the labels with the lettering, and I will just add the images. I am so going to use some of your very crafty ideas for my sons 7th birthday party in March. Just love your attention to detail. Your pictures were fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing!

  52. We are also doing Star Wars Lego Party – instead of reinventing the wheel :) do you still have your food label files that you could email to me or link somehow to here??? That would be FANTASTIC!!! :)
    Thanks!

  53. Nevermind to my previous message…after reading the other comments I understand you can’t….anyway, thanks for the fantastic ideas!!! Adorable!

  54. What a great party! I love all your DIY details … you’re so creative!

  55. Thanks so much for the great ideas! Just had our Lego Star Wars party yesterday, did celery and carrot sticks with ranch dressing at the bottom of the cup for light sabers and about 1/2 of the kids ate them – they didn’t pick up on their own – but when I said who wants light sabers they were in. I also did the edible ewoks as just the teddy grahams. Great party – great idea! If others have healthy star war options please post.

    • Your so welcome! I’m glad you had so much fun and it was such a success! Personally I’m not at all healthy so I’m the wrong person to ask. I’m a meat, carb and sugar eater, not so much into the veggies and other healthy stuff. But I’m glad you were able to find healthier ideas! I’m sure quite a few people would rather go that way! And I hope if anyone had other healthy versions they add them as well!

  56. Hi Ashlee, my name is Giada, I am an italian blogger and I am speechless! I am a truly Star Wars geek and I felt in love with all the ideas of the party! I’d like to know if I can write about your post in my blog, a guest post on your amazing birthday party. Please let me know. Have a nice day, Giada

  57. I love love all of your ideas!! My 6 yr old son wants a star wars party (specifically lego star wars…lol) and I have had a hard time finding anything. Would you be able to send me the food labels you used? It would be sooo appreciated!

    • Guess what!!! I’m giving them away for FREE as a download for “liking” my Facebook page until the end of February! http://www.facebook.com/imtopsyturvy so head on over! If you already like my page they are under a tab on the left hand side with a yellow star saying “lego star wars labels!” AND when I get to 1000 followers (only 3 away) I’m going to add my blank invitation as well! Eeek! So exciting!

  58. Hi Ashlee, thank you! Don’t worry: I never crop out the watermarks! I publish my picture on the blog too so I know that watermarks are truly important. And I actually would like to dedicate the guest-post to you, so I’ll surely link back to your blog. I’ll send the link of the post as soon as I’ll publish it. Thank you!

  59. Hey Ashlee,

    I am in awe of the temporary tattoos that you made with your shilouette. I have had my shilouette for over a year and it has sat on my closet shelf because I have no idea how to use it. I just pulled it out to try it again & saw these, too late to make them now, but I would love to hear some pointers on how to make them from the star wars clipart…my son flipped when he saw those on here. Totally will have to send you some pictures of our party after the weekend, hopefully we can pul it off. Seriously send some of your creative vibes to Texas for the weekend…if I was in Utah I would have totally invited to come to the party anc check it out…haha!

    • Ah!! where in TX? We used to live in Houston and I used to live in Dallas! Have a great weekend! Did you see the downloads on my facebook page for the labels? I’m emailing you my star wars tattoos right now, it’s probably too late, but just in case! Have a great party!

      • Ashlee,

        I too am in awe of the temporary tattoos. My almost 4 year old son is autistic and after 1.5 years in therapy he is finally at the point where he wants to play with other children! He is head over heels for Star Wars, so that’s his partly theme this year. We are inviting friends this year and might even get to sing Happy Birthday! Is it possible to get a copy of the tattoos? This will be my second project on my Silhouette!

  60. Great site you have here.. It

  61. Thank you so much for the information! My son is in the inclusion class at school and we invited the whole class to his star wars birthday party. It is nice to find some advice on how to keep everyone busy. I’m not sure what I am in for, but my son seems to really enjoy the kids in his class so we decided to invite everyone and I think almost everyone is coming too!!! Anyway, I was really happy to find this post because I now know that the ideas I have come up with should keep everyone happy.

    • Good luck! I know that inviting the whole class is scary for anyone, let alone when you might not know how some of the kids will act or react! Good luck and I hope they all have a ball! My kids STILL love their light sabers and I just broke out the LAST of the galaxy playdough last week! Did you get the labels from my FB page as well?

  62. I love your ideas! My son too wants a lego star wars party this year. (: I was wondering what is your recipe for the white chocolate popcorn? Since no one else asked……I must be missing how easy it is. (: I looked all over your website and did not see it, but of course found so many more great ideas. You are very blessed with creativity! Thank you for sharing!

    • I popped plain popcorn and spread it over a large cookie sheet, melted HIGH quality white chocolate candy melts, and pour it over the popcorn, stirring it while it cools! And other candy if you want, but it tends to be heavy and sink to the bottom

  63. cakemaker says:

    Thanks so much for sharing the details of this cake. Can you tell me what size oval tin did you use, please?

    • it doesn’t matter what size you start with, just carve the cake from that, so if your having a bigger party use a bigger oval, a smaller party a smaller oval. I honestly don’t remember!

  64. cakemaker says:

    Thanks…that makes sense.

  65. cakemaker says:

    No need to be sorry…..the photo is a great guide to go by….:0))

  66. Emerie says:

    I am trying to come up with unique, yet creative ways for my son’s birthday next month. For the water bottles, did you just spray paint all over? What kind of paint did you use?

    Thanks so much!

  67. Crystal says:

    I love it and plan on doing this for my son’s 5th bday.Last year I did a Harry Potter one,and did the various food and treats in fun labeled bowls too-it was great! And on each disposable cup,I taped a label with a different named potion.(online-there are tons of different names for potions) No one got their drinks mixed up and it was a big hit!

  68. Marikathryn Hendrix says:

    I would love to get those water bottle labels. Am I able to copy them to print? These are amazing!

  69. Renee Martin-Rhea says:

    My 6 year old son has Aspergers and is obsessed with Lego Star Wars right now. Thanks for giving me so many awesome ideas for his upcoming birthday in August!

    • your so welcome, make sure to get over to the facebook page and download the labels!!! It is SUCH a fun party, my 7YO is moving on to lego ninjago now!

  70. Kathleen says:

    I LOVE your party, and am trying to organize the same for my son who’s turning 5 in August. Any chance you’re still offering the food labels for FB likers?

    • I AM!!! I keep forgetting to switch it out! I hope no one minds, but I do want to offer a change at some point! It’s such a fun party though it’s hard to ever take off, I get so many requests for them!

  71. Love all of these fabulous ideas!!! I am going to attempt the C3PO water bottles tomorrow. I was wondering how do you keep the water cold during the party??? I don’t want to ruin your labels in ice and I am nervous about ruining the paint. Any tips? Thank you!

    • I didn’t bother, I just had the water out and room temperature. It was May and the weather was still nice, not hot, not cold, just right for drinking!

  72. Could you explain how you made the legos on the cake look so real? My grandson wants this cake for his birthday this weekend. If you don’t see this before 8/30/12 I may try to find regular legos to put on it! Thanks for the help!

    • They are all made out of fondant. I rolled it out, cut it into circles, squares, rectangles, etc… then I used a round tip to cut out the circles and glue them with clear vanilla (or vodka) to the squares, etc…

  73. My son is turning 5 in December and he is obssessed with Star Wars, would you be so kind to share your food labels with me?! I would greatly appreciate it! As I am on a budget =(

    • the labels are on my facebook page as a download if you like my page. Click the tab “lego star wars labels” and the blue links will take you to a PDF you can download and print!

  74. I love it!

    I liked the page on Facebook.
    How may I find the food labels for the Star Wars?

    • They are under the tab “free lego star wars labels” you can’t see tabs on phones or tablets, just computers.

      • Christi K. says:

        You are a genius! And a great mom. I am in awe of the effort and creativity you poured into the party. Being far lazier and less creative, I would love to download your cool labels. However, FB won’t let me have the link on Explorer because of an invalid security certificate for the link. FB on Chrome won’t let me have it because of an error/the file may have been moved. Could you please figure this out for me? Thanks in advance.

  75. Love the Lego party! My son is turning 8 in April. I just came across your blog. Love the idea! Will be using some of your great tips! Great Job!!!

    • I’m so glad you like it! to date it’s still one of my all time favorite parties! I want to do it again just to get even BETTER pictures, it was amazing!

  76. Love these ideas! I liked your facebook page back in January, but never got the labels. Is there anyway to get those now? I really think they are fantastic!

    • totally still there. everytime I try to take them down people want them again, so I just leave them on! go to the FB page, and click on the tab “free lego star wars food labels” scroll down to the blue text links, click on what you want and save them to your PC!

  77. Love the C3PO water. How did you make the labels?

  78. I absolutely love your creative ideas! May I ask how you cut and piece together the cake to create the Millennium Falcom? Also, did you use paper mache to create the Death Star Pinata? Thanks so much!

    • yes the death star is paper mache.

      for the cake I baked an oval shape, then laid over a printed image of the millennium falcon (top down) and used it as a template. So it’s not pieced together, but cut from one cake. then I carved down the tapered edge around the top!
