The Empire Strikes Back.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, we designed a Star Wars themed bowling party for a boy turning seven. We stuck with the colors black, grey, and white as our primary color scheme.

The focal point of our dessert table was the Star Wars themed Imperial bowling set we purchased off of Amazon. I love that the bowling balls were the Death Star and the Thermal Detonator. We chose to create our own bowling lane using wrapping paper we picked up from Target.

I love using sheets as tablecloths and in this particular dessert table we also used a sheet as our backdrop. We drew out the sign onto white poster board that we used as part of the backdrop. Over the past couple of months we've picked up some great Star Wars props. Williams Sonoma provided the adorable cupcake toppers. We even picked them up on sale for just a couple dollars!

One of my favorite things about designing any event is the hunt. Picking items up at random places. Seeing something and knowing right away you're going to use it. That's how I felt when I came across the baking cups we used to hold chocolate whoppers. I immediately knew the design on the cups would be perfect for this galactic party.

When we saw the Darth Vader candle holder on Amazon, we knew it would be the perfect cake topper for the birthday boy. We loved the light saber birthday candle. The large Darth Vader was purchased from Target for what we thought was too good a price to pass up.
