Lego Star Wars Birthday party

 
When a dear friend of mine asked me to help her with her son's birthday party, I jumped at the chance. I just love thinking of ideas, the planning and see it all come together at the end.
And as I have only girls(for now) I was exited about a boy themed party...until I found out the theme...Lego Star Wars...I've never seen a Star Wars Movie, don't really know nothing about it.
I've herd of Princess Leia(witch I thought you write it Leah)..... and the line: I am your father!
 So clearly I am clueless.
But don't worry, I said to myself, I have a friend that knows EVERYTHING!
Pinterest that is!:)
 So here you go, a Lego Star Wars Birthday party!
I was in charge with the party decor,games and (never again) cake!
 
 
Free Printable: Star Wars Birthday Banner here.
 
 
 
 
The main focus on the decor  was the super sized death star .That was super easy to make.I will share all the details in a different post.*

UPDATE * click here for the tutorial.
 

The yummy food my friend made! 
 
 
 
I was in charge with the cake, I offered to bake it...what was I thinking?!! In my head I'm like this amazing baker...boy was I wrong.
This is half made by me(the base) and I bought the top. Because mine was a disaster.
I blame Pinterest for making it look so easy when it is NOT!
 
 
Games:
 

As the guest arrived,they first had a go at guess how many Lego's ? Care to have a go?
(153):))

 
 
- included sucking up pieces of Lego on the end of a straw and into a container ,just make sure you use a jumbo straw.
We played it 3 times!A big hit!
 
 
 
-save the Lego Man from the ice! I coloured the water yellow  to make it more fun.
They loved this one! 
 
 
 
I 've made a lightsaber for every one out of pipe covers and just used some black tape at one end to design the lightsaber hilt detail,we used it in two games and they took it home with them with a bag of candy, as party favours.
In this game they had to fight each other without dropping the precious cargo under their chin.

We also played: Find the Lego Man. I hid 5 Lego's around the house(used blue tack to stick them on walls,stairs) ,and they split in two teams and had to find them all.
 
 
 
 
 
The last game was trow the disk on to the light saber. I had to think about this one on the spot,because we still had some time and I was out of games . I cut out the disk out of paper plates.

 I will post the how to's on some of the projects in case you are inspired to have a Lego party for your birthday boy. 

 
 
Happy birthday Marco!!

    1. hi, thank you, I was referring to a drinking plastic cup that looks like a small wine glass but made from plastic, the foot of the glass is detachable and I used that. I hope that helps, but you can use whatever round thing you have around your house, like a plastic lid or something. :)
