Thanks to the popular Star Wars saga series the Mandolorian on Disney Plus, Star Wars Themed parties are popular again. I have to admit if we had to host a grandkid’s party I’d probably persuade him to pick Star Wars as a party theme. And you do know that May 4th. is Star Wars day every year right?
So in preparation for this year’s Star Wars day here are some ideas on how to plan a Star Wars themed party for May the 4th. or any other day!

Star Wars parties are not exactly limited to kid’s parties, many adults love theme too. In fact I’ve even heard of a Star Wars themed wedding. Now that might be going a bit too far for me, but hey a grand entrance thru a tunnel of light sabers would probably be pretty cool!
Having said that here are some fun ideas for a Star Wars Party! Hope it inspires you to throw one too!

I found this sign on Pinterest. It’s basically letters pasted on to a project board, you know the one you used for your child’s science project. Really easy to do with stick on letters and stars. You can customize it with your child’s age and name! I’d use at least 1″ letters and 3″ stars in gold or the color of your choice.
Party decor is only limited by your imagination. Think of the possibilities! Lots of characters to choose from to make centerpiece cutouts or standing cutouts for your dessert table. You can DIY or order from Etsy.
I I Just love all the things you can do with paper lanterns! You can add Yoda ears, turn a couple into BB8, Tie Fighters and more!
I love Photo Booths and so do guests of all ages! Doesn’t take much to add a Photo Booth to your Star Wars Party. You can tape a black plastic table cloth to a wall and use it for your background. Stick on a few stars, you have some leftover from the reception table sign don’t you?
Add a few Star Wars related props and voilá you got a photo booth!

Can’t send guests home without a party favor. I love these bubble wands, they’re very budget friendly, everyone loves bubbles, and they easily become lighsabers! Just add a favor tag that says thanks for coming to the party and you’re done!
