party plans

This post is for my mom and mom in-law who keep says I should share my ideas.I am no Martha Stewart keep in mind, just a mom who loves to find creative ways to save money and still have a great party for my kids.I just wished I had some better photos of the room so you could see the whole thing. LIttle Mister wanted a star wars party and with all the stuff going on I was limited in my time to pull it off but we had so much fun.I made him and R2D2 cake that was from the same cake pan used on his dad's 4th birthday. Thank you Karen for saving it!

We decorated with black and silver and had white Christmas lights in the window. The tables had the Germer boys old star wars toys on them with star confetti. We had Yoda swamp water punch to drink. For snacks we had mini asteroids(pirate botty, mini death stars(olives),ewak forest(broccoli), yoda walking sticks (carrots, and Luke Skywalker light saber pretzels.

The kids had face painting, make your own droid activity with all sorts of different art supplies, and make your super space picture on black paper with chalk and stickers. The kids seem to have so much fun and the droids turned out pretty cute. The bad thing about being the hostess is you don't get to also be the photographer so I don't have to many pictures of all the happenings at the party.
Little mIss looking at her face painting again and again.

Little mister in his luke costume getting Princess princess Leah picture painted on his face. Great job Nana!

We had a lot of fun! The kids each went home with a "super rare space rock" (a small gift wrapped in foil)Good thing I saved the decor as I have now been asked to repeat the party for my Niece. I am trying to convince her to do a different theme. We will see when her birthday rolls around :)
For his actual bday we went to dinner at Red Robin with and to the hospital to have cupcakes with Ammy.

And to answer the question I have been asked by so many of you... Yes I am already coming up with ideas for Little Miss's 2 birthday in May.
