LEGO Star Wars Birthday Party

A few weeks ago in a galaxy far, far away, 15 Rebel troopers joined forces to celebrate Jedi Camden's 5th birthday.


Everything from the cake to the decorations, was inspired by the comic strip invitation booklet that was brilliantly designed by my friend, Melanie of ewe hooo!. The sunburst motif, and gray and orange colors from the invitation were carried over to the dessert table and photo booth.

A simple dessert table backdrop was created by re-using the navy blue and gray pomettes from my parents' anniversary party and suspending a LEGO snow speeder from the ceiling. The Jedi pilot cake from PhoebeCakes stood on top of a cake stand built entirely out of LEGOs.



We also had a mini birthday celebration for Uncle Frank and baby Haven with cupcakes from Cupcakes Actually and Sweetz Bakery, and fondant toppers made by the incredibly talented, Lynlee of Lynlee's Petite Cakes.



Doughbabies baked by Dough a Deer were placed on top of oatmeal boxes covered with wrapping paper to resemble LEGO bricks. Mom's Killer Cakes killed it with the Storm Trooper, Darth Vader and Death Star cake pops.



The comic strip style photo booth constructed from black tri-fold foam board and equipped with LEGO Star Wars props was another big hit with the guests. It was Melanie's idea to blow up the image of the sunburst for the background.



Of course the LEGOs were the highlight of the party. Brixalot, a local company here in the Dulles area, hooked us up with 30,000+ LEGOs -- more than enough bricks to rebuild the Rebel fleet.




It wouldn't be a party at our place without a creation from my husband, the "Cardboard Master". Every year, he puts his Mechanical Engineering degree to good use and makes the most incredible things out of cardboard (check out what he made for the Transformers party). Can you believe that he built this snow speeder in just one week? Paper Star Wars snowflakes, which hung above the snow speeder, were another last minute DIY project (you can download the snowflake templates here).




At the conclusion of Camden's 5th birthday saga, guests took home these mini LEGO Star Wars ship sets. A galactic good time was had by all!

  2. Wow! This is really creative. There are just so many fun details. You definitely thought outside of the box for this one. A total dream for a kid's party even if they aren't Star Wars fans, but even more so if they are.

    I especially love the cake and the boxes topped with donuts that look like Legos, but every aspect of this party is top notch. Awesome job!

  22. I love the LEGO Star Wars props. Do you have the layout for these or where I can purchase them? Thanks.

  23. If your husband with the degree made instructions for how he builds the Speeder and the Transformer, I would bet he could sell them. Goodness knows I would buy it (unless he went insane on how much he charged, of course).

  24. Where did you get the mask/props from?
