the party

My son’s five-year-old birthday party went well.
It was packed with family, friends and Star Wars madness.
We served Yoda Soda, Carbonite Jello,

Galactic Space planets and the Hoth themed birthday cake.

We played pin the lightsaber on Yoda, decorated prince and princess hats and enjoyed an action packed skit with Count Dooku fighting Darth Vader. The birthday boy told us later on that he thought it was really Darth Vader until he looked down and saw my oldest son’s brown crocs peeking out under the black cape! **I love it**

To my surprise, a thrown together idea was the hit of the party. We had the children fold their own paper airplanes with directions I printed out before hand. The mission was to fly the 'spacecrafts' through the galactic lasers (orange yarn crisscrossed between two poles in the basement) and safely land onto the landing dock of the Death Star (our pool table). Who knew?

His favorite gift was from his Aunt Alice, a Charlie Chaplin cane. When he unwrapped the cane, his eyes lit up and he started dancing with it around the room. My husband put on ‘Puttin' on the Ritz’ and all the children started dancing with him!

I found this Death Star cantaloupe idea on the internet but ran out of time to carve it! Maybe next year!

Through my five-year-olds’ eyes, I really was Princess Leia. He was very pleased as Daddy dressed up as Count Dooku and I did my best to whip up a Princess Leia outfit!

Also, a friend posted a link of this video on their website and my husband and the kids enjoyed it! The video has 11,482,905 hits so far! Pretty creative!
