DIY Star Wars Party

We recently celebrated the 7th birthday party of our young padawan with a DIY Star Wars Party in Chili's Greenhills.

For any DIY project, I always turn to Pinterest for inspiration.  Sharing with you my DIY Star Wars labor of love for my youngling.  Post includes supplier info in Manila.

UP Shopping is where I usually have my full color pictures printed. The price is very reasonable and you can ask the attendant to help you with the lay-out for a small fee.

For the backdrop, Chili’s was offering a Star Wars tarp but I don't like tarps. I can rent a backdrop but rental is 9k! So I bought this black cloth instead (see photo above) and pasted glitter star foams on it. For the name, I just printed the fonts on white cartolina using the free Star Wars font generator from Font Meme.

For the cake table, the star of the show is the beautiful fondant cake made by Delishaes. The fondant design is beautifully executed and I love the detail put onto the death star. Plus winner pa ang price! I asked for quotations from different suppliers and the other 4 who gave good quotes are The Happy Tummy, Mai Goodies, Fairy Anya's Cupcakes and Kitchen Crafts .

And to top it all the cake is yummy. The chocolate cake is moist and it had chocolate cream filling in between.

To make the cake table nicer, I got my son’s Star Wars action figures and placed it there too.

I also made some marshmallow storm troopers using Wilton edible food marker at Gourdo’s. They don’t have stock sa Chocolate Lovers, buti na lang because it is more expensive by 300! For the tie fighters we used Oreo and sandwiched marshmallow in between. To connect the 3, we melted some marshmalow and used it as paste. We should have removed though the oreo filling to make it less messy.

For the table centerpiece, I used my glitter foam stars (i bought glitter foam in SM stationary section and cut it out into stars). For the imperial logo, you can go to ForGeeks for the star wars logo generators.

We had Darth Vader and Storm Trooper character appearance from RAI cosplay. RAI cosplay costume doesn't look impressive especially for the P4500 price tag per character. Apart from the so-so costume, I think it would have been more epic if the characters did an Imperial March dance or mock fight. In defense of RAI, they told me that their character will do a dance number to a popular tune and their characters and staff were very prompt and courteous. My internet research skills failed me this time as I was not able to find a more suitable supplier. I emailed fight saber ph but didn’t get any reply from them. They do mock fights which would have been better.

For his giveaway, we gave out Jedi robes na super patok! I asked the guests to bring their own light sabers. And of course Star Wars soundtrack was playing in a loop for better effect.

Should you like Star Wars cupcakes instead, you can try contacting Louisa's Cupcakes. She made our Star Wars cupcake tower for the past 2 years.

It would also be nice if you can buy pool noodles and make light sabers out of it. I did it  2 years ago and it was a success because the kids loved it and I wasn’t worried sick they would hurt each other with it because it was just pool noodle.  I just couldn't find pool noodles this time around so I wasn't able to make one.

I didnt have time to customize the games anymore to match our Star Wars theme but here are a few ideas:

  1. Pin the ear on Yoda
  2. Wear the Jedi robe relay
  3. Pick up the light saber relay
  4. Darth Vader pinata using a light saber stick
  5. Pop a Storm Trooper (draw Storm Trooper face on white balloons and ask kids to pop them)

Hope this helps!  Enjoy making your DIY Star Wars Party for your padawan!
