My girls really enjoy Star Wars. After I had the baby boy, they went over to my niece’s house and they watched all of the episodes over the course of a couple of weeks. I think they genuinely enjoyed the movies; but they also have that special feeling of being cared for to go with them. Since The Force Awakens came out, I think they have become even bigger fans. May the 4th was just naturally a day I wanted to do something fun. I looked over Pinterest for ideas. I wished I had gotten an earlier start because I saw lots of cute ideas that needed cookie cutters and other equipment that I just didn’t have on hand.
We ended up with breakfast for dinner. This is not unusual. We usually do this once a week on our more hectic nights.
The eggs were the Twin Suns.
Cinnamon rolls were naturally Leia’s Buns.
We had bacon and hashbrowns, which were a pretty terrible looking “Chewbaccon”. At least we got a good laugh out of it!
The sausage links were Light Sabers.
I made Yoda Soda which was basically just a lime sherbet float.
I made Chewy cookies from Little Debbie Star Crunch cookies and added candy eyes and a frosting mouth and nose. I got that idea from Pinterest.
I purchased Star Wars plates and napkins. I also got some Star Wars fruit snacks for little treats. The children all thought everything turned out really cute and I think they love a themed dinner as much as I do.
I made all the signs and the framed “May the Fourth Be With You” sign using DaFont’s Star Jedi font.
Next, Cinco de Mayo!!
