...the Etsy shop ChalkDustDesign created these
chalkboard-style . R2D2, C3PO, and two light sabers grace the front of each 5x7 card, along with your party information written just like the text in the beginning of the movie. The back has a reverse chalk drawing of the Death Star. You choose to have the invites printed and mailed to you, or receive a digital file for home printing. This store also makes memorable, coordinating milestone posters to highlight your birthday boy or girl's likes, dislikes and accomplishments over the past year for an additional fee.

Shine On also created this space-age table scape using the paper lantern Death Star as a focal point. Black poster board with silver stars serves as a backdrop and a printable banner hangs in the center. Silver star helium balloons complete the look.

We love these Clone Cupcakes from the
Dabbled blog! Nancy, the author of this blog created these Clone Trooper helmets from cupcakes covered in fondant. She said that these pastries took time, but the results are well worth it. She gives very detailed directions here!

Clone Trooper and Storm Trooper candy pops.

If you aren’t up to creating a pastry as detailed as the Clone Trooper cupcakes, try these edible light sabers. Brandy at the
Gluesticksblog shows you how to create these cute little light sabers from rolled fondant. Use to top store-bought or home baked cupcakes. We bet you could even make a larger version to top off a cake! Check it out here!

For a savory treat to go with all that delicious cake, try these
light saber pretzels from the I Should Be Mopping the Floor blog. These are large stick pretzels dipped in candy melts — yum! Just watch out for the inevitable pretzel light saber battles!

Nothing quenches the thirst of a little Jedi like Yoda Soda. The recipe is from the
Here Comes the Sun blog. Just pour lemon-lime flavored soda pop over lime sherbet for bubbly goodness! Check out the post for lots of other fun Star Wars food ideas.

Once you’ve fed all of your party guests, let them release their energy with some games and activities! Storm Trooper Knockout from the
blog is a fun game that can be played indoors, since Styrofoam balls are the weapon of choice. (We bet you could use ping pong balls, too!) A Nest for All Seasons

Once the Storm Troopers have been soundly defeated, it’s time to
rescue Han Solo from the carbonite! Amy at A Nest for All Seasons said that this activity kept the kids busy for a long time — bonus! And it’s a cheap and easy game — just laminate a picture of Han Solo and freeze him in the bottom of a dish filled with green-tinted water. Give the kiddos forks and let them chip away, or they could melt the ice by squirting with water guns filled with warm water.
