The Boy turned 6 in August. After a few weeks of trying to convince him that I just couldn't do another army party, we decided that I could do a Star Wars party. I searched galaxies far and wide for party ideas. I found these.

From Make & Takes ... Seriously, this party looks like it was crazy fun. I liked the Jedi robes and really wanted to make them for all 12 kids at the party, but I was too lazy and I didn't.
Picture from Makes and Takes...These are not my children, I repeat these are not my children.

But these are my coke bottles.
Not too bad, huh? So much easier than making 22 Jedi robes. I wish I would have taken pictures of the party decor. I hung black streamers, one of the useful things I learned in College, and put out The Boy's Star Wars toys and figurines. I'm a big fan of hanging stuff from the ceiling so I hung his starships up too.

We had Yoda soda and the little Jedi's loved it. Since The Boy's birthday is during the dog days of summer, we rented a waterslide. The kids had a BLAST!

Now I have to start planning for The Little Boy's party for the end of September, which is next week.

Those are the cutest Coke bottles I've ever seen! I will HAVE to do that for our next party. I have three boys who are OBSESSED with Star Wars. I recently did some Jedi artwork to hang over their bed, and they love it. You can see it at . LOVE your ideas!
