Star Wars Birthday Party!

My daughter decided that for her eighth birthday she wanted to have a star wars birthday party. She specifically specified princess Leia:)

So I started brainstorming and searching for some of the best star wars birthday ideas that I could find!

These are all star wars birthday party ideas that are sure to make your star wars party the most awesome party ever!

Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas

There are so many different possibilities when it comes to Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas!

The fun thing about a Star Wars birthday party is that kids and adults alike will be impressed;)

Star Wars Invitations

Invitations are the place to start!

Choose your favorite invitations and send them out in advance to all of your potential party guests.

Here are several options that you can choose from. Some invitations also include thank you notes which I think is nice. Thank you notes are a great way to teach your kids to thank their guests for their presents!

And it helps your child with writing practice and strengthening fine motor skills:)

Star Wars Birthday Party Supplies

Next you need to gather your Star Wars birthday party supplies!

Here are four different star wars paper plates and cups to choose from. We used the last set of paper plates and cups listed here along with this Star Wars tablecloth.

You can either let your child choose their favorite or pick it your self and surprise them:) My kids like to be surprised. They pick the theme that they want for their party and then I get everything together to surprise them:)

My kids usually spend the day of their party at their grandparents and then come home once the party is all set up. They love the anticipation:)

Star Wars Birthday Party Decorations

After you have your plates, cups, napkins etc., you can add some decorations if you would like.

These are some fun options!

Kids always love balloons, so I always make sure that I have balloons that fit their theme! I buy them online and then take them to the grocery store five minutes from my house and have them fill them up with helium.

For the Star Wars birthday I also purchased a tall Princess Leia cardboard cutout just like the Luke Skywalker one pictured below. My daughter loved it!

Star Wars Birthday Banner

Birthday banners are also a great party decoration. This Star Wars Birthday Banner is a great one to use!

Star Wars Birthday Cake

Star Wars Birthday Cake


This is a picture of the cake that I made my daughter for her Star Wars birthday party.

I usually do fondant cakes or tiered theme cakes like this Dinosaur Birthday Cake and this Frozen Birthday Cake, but this year my daughter had a specific cake flavor that she wanted.

She asked me for this incredibly delicious Chocolate Nutella Cheesecake Cake from Wicked Good Kitchen! I was thrilled with this request;) It is the most delicious cake I have ever had and my own personal favorite!

So I knew what kind of cake I was going to make, but I needed to figure out a way to make it a Star Wars birthday cake. I couldn’t very well make a tiered cake out of it ( I’m not messing with this amazing recipe, its perfect just the way it is!;), and I definitely wasn’t going to cover it in fondant!

So, I found this super cool Star Wars edible image! It’s an 8 inch circle that fits perfectly on the top of this cake! And the awesome part is that it is incredibly easy to apply, giving you a professional looking cake with very little effort!

You can use this edible image on any cake that you would like. It comes with application instructions and once applied it looks like it is part of the icing. Super cool!

In addition to the cake you will need birthday candles! I used these Star Wars Birthday CandlesΒ on our Star Wars birthday cake.

Star Wars Food

Don’t forget fun Star Wars food for your birthday party!

There are lots of fun ideas to choose from when it comes to food! We decided to keep ours simple and just do snacks instead of a full meal.

Star Wars Food


One of my favorite is Princess Lays! This is a super cute idea and incredibly easy to do! I mean, how hard is it to dump a bag of chips into a bowl?! You can find this cute idea from Catch My Party.

To make the sign I simply folded a piece of black cardstock and wrote on it using gold puffy paint. I made signs for all of my food items using this.

Fruit Lightsabers

This is another Star Wars food item that I made for our party. A super cute idea and another easy to make snack!

Plus, this is a healthy snack. I always like to include at least one food item at the party that isn’t full of sugar and that is actually nutritious!

I found this idea at Rookie Moms. The nice thing about them is that they are made using items that you probably already have on hand.

Storm Trooper Cupcakes

Star Wars Food


How cute are these storm trooper cupcakes?! I found this fun and easy to make Star Wars food idea at There’s Just One Mommy.

Whenever I make a birthday cake and have a little extra batter left over after filling my cake pans, I use it to make a few cupcakes. I then sit the cupcakes on a platter near the cake.

This is a great idea to use when decorating those extra cupcakes!

Carbonite Jello

Star Wars Food


This is another item that I didn’t include at our party that I wish I would have! How cool is this?! And so creative!

In Star Wars the Empire Strikes Back, Hans Solo was frozen in carbonite. This fun star wars food is a recreation of that. Freeze Captain Solo in jello!

This super neat idea comes from Catch My Party.

Star Wars Cookie Cutters

Another great Star Wars food item to include at a birthday party is cookies! Here are four great Star Wars cookie cutter options.

Star Wars Cookies

Star Wars Cookies


These are the cookies that I made for our birthday party. I did not just use a cookie cutter for my cookies. I also used this super neat Star Wars rolling pin!

It also comes with a recipe that was really good. You simply make the dough, roll it out using a regular rolling pin, and then roll over it with the Star Wars rolling pin. This leaves Star Wars prints on your cookies. Then use a cookie cutter to cut them out.

You can use one of the cookie cutters listed above or any shape that you would like. Because these cookies were for a girl’s party I cut them into hearts to give them a more girly look:)

Here are two Star Wars rolling pin options that you can choose from. The first one is the one that I used and comes with the recipe that I used as well.



Star Wars Costumes

Costumes are not required for a birthday party, but they make it a lot more fun!

My daughter loves to dress up, actually all of my kids do! So as one of her birthday presents I bought her this Princess Leia costume. I let her open it early so that she could wear it to the party:)

Here are some great Star Wars costumes for kids!

Star Wars Birthday Party Games

Party games are another great party idea!

Here are some fun and creative DIY Star Wars birthday party games!

Pin the Hair Bun on Princess Leia

This is a super cute idea! Kind of like pin the tail on the donkey, but instead of tail you use a yarn bun circle and pin it on princess Leia!

You can find this idea at Rookie Moms. They also have options for boys using other items as well.

Free Hans Solo From Carbonite GameStar Wars Birthday Party Games


This is another great Star Wars birthday party game!

It’s the same thing that I mentioned above as a Star Wars food item. But instead of eating it, the kids are going to play in it!
