Star Wars Themed Party

For this party the entertainment was provided at a dry ski slope in the form of a 1 hour donut session.

We provided a Star Wars themed goody bag with a Star Wars blind bag and cupcake and also a pool noodle light sabre (https://youtu.be/rn9DIJoMJyY) for the kids to battle with after the donutting.

We got the Star Wars themed stickers from an eBay seller and bags also from eBay.
Below are 2 different Star Wars cakes we have created for different parties.
