Even though there hasn't been a recent film release, Star Wars remains a popular favorite among fans both new and old. Kids of all ages from 5 to 75 have embraced the world that was imagined by Star Wars creator George Lucas more than twenty-five years ago. For kids, the world of Star Wars is an infinitely fascinating place where they can let their imagination and fantasies take flight in a galaxy far, far away. If your special birthday girl or boy is really a fan of these films, this is the can't miss party theme to add to your best birthday party list.
There are many techniques you'll be able to employ that will bring the theme to light in a way that permits everyone to have enjoyable and memorable experience. To begin, you could have a classic Star Wars event with the original Episodes (IV, V, and VI) showing one right after the other throughout the course of the party.
This is best for an overnight or all day sort of party as it allows breaks in between the showings and plenty of time to incorporate some serious snack making or pizza ordering without interfering with the DVDs being played with in the background.
Should you wish to take this a step further, you can also have your guests come dressed as their favorite Star Wars characters from all six films. If you're genuinely adventurous you can do a back-to-back showing of all six films, although this makes for a very long weekend sort of event. However, this is ideal if your birthday falls on a 3-day weekend such as Labor Day or Memorial Day. Otherwise, it is a wonderful thought but you might need to break it up into two years' worth of celebrations.
If your friends or your child's pals are a creative bunch, it is also possible to have a scenario where guests speculate and produce tall tales about what occurs between Episodes III and IV as well as what occurs to their favorite characters after Episode VI. This is really a lot of fun and creates a sort of role-playing atmosphere for the party that will be a huge amount of fun.
If this is not enough activity and you would like a little something to keep the kids busy, you may well desire to invite your guests to a Jedi training academy of sorts. Set up an obstacle course for everybody to follow along with a series of exercises comparable to what Luke went through in the Empire Strikes Back. The winner can get some Star Wars themed award for giggles and a little added entertainment.
Most bakeries are likely to have a fantastic cake on hand or an inventory for Star Wars because the theme remains so common. If not, you will find great cake ideas online that work beautifully for a Star Wars theme with home made birthday cakes. It's actually great in case you can try one of these because it will be something just a little distinct from what everybody else who does a Star Wars themed party will have. Naturally, you could constantly go with a background of stars along with the original Star Wars logo painted in yellow. Simple, and yet completely suitable.
If a Star Wars themed birthday party is anywhere on your wish list for your birthday or your child or significant other's birthday, by all means make your greatest effort to make this a enjoyable and memorable event. May the Force be with you, young padawan. And don't forget the Lightsabers!
