A Boy’s Star Wars Birthday Party

Never Think About What to Make for Dinner for the Next Two Months with My
Lazy Cooking Bundle

When the force is strong with your Star Wars-obsessed son, planning a boy’s Star Wars birthday party to celebrate him turning five is a no-brainer.

Mom and party pro Stacey Stewart, of Sweet Pea Parties, admittedly loved reliving a favorite movie from her own childhood and put together an out-of-this world party full of budget-friendly, DIY details.

From pool noodle lightsabers to homemade felt costumes for little “Lukes” and “Leias” and even a Land Speeder and Millennium Falcon made from cardboard boxes, this party was full of creativity.

The decorations, party favors, activities and food were all Star Wars inspired and made for one fabulous celebration.
