A's 13th Star Wars Birthday Party

 A's Star Wars Cake

As you guys know, A turned 13 yesterday.  I am still trying to process that, our first teenager!  We celebrated her birthday on Saturday with a Star Wars themed birthday party.  She dressed up in her Rey costume and had such a good time with family and friends.  2016 was a really challenging year for our family, especially A, and it was so fun to celebrate her and her life.  I am so blessed to be her Mom.  Enjoy the photos!

David went with a 3D effect, so fun.

 A and her cake!

The food spread

I had a lot of fun with the food for this party.  We served Princess Leia buns, green/blue/red light saber pretzels, Storm Trooper deviled eggs, fruit/veggie trays, various chips and dips, Strom Trooper Chex Mix, etc.

A and B actually made most of these!

Princess Leia Buns

I bought prepackaged Chex Mix and then used a food coloring marker to make Storm Trooper marshmallows and added them.

And of course there was Yoda Soda - just Sprite mixed with Lime Sherbet.

 We borrowed a projector and watched The Force Awakens.

 Thanks so much to everyone who made it!!  

And a huge shout out to everyone who has stood by us this last year and loved on us and our darling girl.  I don't think there is a way to thank everyone enough.  I always think of our birthday parties as a celebration of our children's lives and this one just seemed extra special with everything since the accident.  I am so grateful for family, friends, and a huge community of people who love!!

What great ideas for Star Wars related party food. I have 5 grandsons. Three of which are not babies and they love Star Wars. This party would be a hit in their eyes for sure.
