I made his cake, and since it was supposed to be a fiery lava lake, it was very forgiving and didn't have to be perfect! I grabbed a couple of his star wars guys, washed them up and put them on top of the cake! You can find these playschool action figures at Dollar General for $3.00 each!
For light sabers, I used pool noodles cut in half, then we used duct tape and black electrical tape to make the handles.
One of my favorite parts of a birthday are balloons, so I grabbed 5 foil silver stars at the Dollar Tree! I grabbed Asher's Darth Vader out of his room and poked him in a bowl full of candy for a fun addition to the table!
Wal-Mart had a 10 or 12 pack of bubble wands for a great price so I tied on the little thank you cards that came with his invitations, and each guest took one home along with a bag of Darth Vader's candy!
I decorated our mantle with Asher's Star Wars toys, and bought the banner and swirly decorations at Wal-Mart for around $3 each.
I forgot to take a picture of the green punch after it was made, but it was simply lime sherbet and a bottle of 7-up stirred together! I bought a package of the store bought cups from Wal-Mart, but thought I might need more, so I stuck some of Asher's Star Wars stickers onto inexpensive clear cups. The kids actually preferred those because they could pick out their own character! Asher had fun taking his action figures and "decorating" with them while I was getting everything ready. :)
I made tie-fighter s'mores with graham crackers, chocolate icing, and marshmallows. I downloaded the Stars Wars font and printed out the little signs for each snack. Asher helped out by adding the stickers to each sign.
I had planned to make homemade no-bake cookies for the Wookie Cookies, but ran out of time and energy. I bought Star Crunch Little Debbie snack cakes and glued on candy eyes with chocolate icing. These were a hit!
Asher had a great 7th birthday! So thankful that some of his friends from school, and some of our neighbors could come. He had a great time, and made some great memories!
