I’m busy planning and gathering supplies for May 4. I’m still trying to pinpoint exactly what I want to serve for dinner. I’m thinking of 7-Leia Dip, Trooper Scoopers (scoops chips), Wookie Cookies, and Death Star Doughnuts, Fruit Light Sabers OR Hans burgers, Leia’s buns, Wookie Cookies, and Obi-Wan fruit kebabs.
This is what we did last year. I have to say that the children really do enjoy this kind of a dinner. It takes planning and a little more effort than a normal dinner, but I do love to hear how they plan on doing the same kinds of things when they have families of their own.
Here’s last year’s post:
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.
I’ll try my best to share what I actually end up doing on Thursday. I hope it turns out to be as much fun as last year!
