The Empire Strikes Back - Party Food.

Since our party color scheme was primarily black, grey, and white, we tried to coordinate accordingly with the food. We purchased iconic NYC Black & White cookies from the Fresh Market here in Myrtle Beach. The cookies come to the grocery store frozen, so we were given a package of frozen cookies to keep in our freezer until the date of our party.

Williams Sonoma had their Heroes & Villains cookie cutter on sale, which was perfect for us! We used a cookie recipe which comes from Bake at 350 to get the dark color for our Darth Vader cookies. For the other shapes, we used our favorite sugar cookie recipe. To get the green color for Yoda, we used green food coloring.

We also made Oreo Truffles and used black and white paper straws as sticks to make them easier for guests to grab and eat. Small white sprinkles finished off the look.We printed off the little "May The Force Be With You" tags that we glued to the end of each paper straws.

We like purchasing a couple food items to cut down on some of the work we have to do to put the whole table together. As an homage to Princess Leia's famous hairstyle, we served Little Debbie Swiss Rolls.

Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla butter cream icing were the perfect finish to the dessert table. The birthday boy had his own small chocolate cake to eat. To create our cupcake tower, we wrapped boxes with paper we purchased from Home Goods {we had the added bonus of it being on sale for just a dollar!}. We instantly fell in love with the geometric pattern of the design on the paper and the colors worked perfectly with our theme.
