Easy, Affordable Star Wars Birthday Party Favors

Just like that, he’s turning five and trading Dusty Crophopper for Obi-Wan Kenobi, and super hero capes for light sabers. I’m pretty sure he requested a Star Wars themed birthday party the second his 4th birthday was over.

The thing is … something happened in the last five years, or should I say somethings or “someones” that changed my birthday party planning game. I can get down with a good Pinterest party, but these days, I’m lucky to show up on time and looking somewhat decent! So we outsourced the entertainment, food, and decor {or lack thereof}, and simply showed up during our time slot and had some fun with friends.

I had to somehow theme this thing though, right? So I decided that the cake and favors would serve that purpose. We carefully placed a few Star Wars characters on what I called “galactic balloons” that sat on top of the HEB cookie cake, and I combined a few Pinterest ideas to make easy and affordable Star Wars party favors. Between the favors and family Star Wars shirts from Target, we managed to win over a five-year-old and a few of his closest friends.
