Haven't you heard? The Star Wars Rebel cartoon is on the horizon which means that the long-loved Star Wars movie is beginning to rise in popularity again among young children.

You may begin noticing your children taking an interest in Star Wars, and quite possibly even asking for Star Wars Party Supplies, even though their birthday is months away. With that said, as parents, we all know that it's never too early to be prepared!

Below are a few ideas for a Star Wars Rebels-themed party, along with products from Birthday Express.

Star Wars Birthday Invitations

Invitations are perhaps one of the most important aspects of a birthday party. Without guests, the party cannot go on! There are numerous different ways to implement the Star Wars theme into your party decorations.

An invite, using the infamous scrolling-style text, including the party information is an excellent and fun way to engage young readers and provide all of the details for the event.

Alternatively, a simple card with a picture of the birthday boy or girl dressed as a Jedi, holding a light saber (which could be as easy as taping a glow stick to the invite), is an interactive way to let party guests know where to navigate their spacecruisers.

If you don't have time to design your own Star Wars invitations, Birthday Express has you covered.

With their complete Star Wars Rebels "Party In A Box" kits, you'll have invitations, plus all of the other goodies you need to throw a Jedi-worthy party!

Star Wars Food & Drink Ideas

Getting creative with food and drink ideas is a critical part of planning a Star Wars birthday party. Check out the fun food ideas below!

Light Saber Kebabs

Stick fruits, vegetables, and/or meats onto a skewer, leaving an area to grip. Wrap the grip area with duct tape and then decorate it with a permanent marker like a light saber handle!

Storm Trooper Cupcakes

Decorate cupcakes with white icing, stick a large marshmallow on top, and decorate the marshmallow like the helmet of a Storm Trooper.

If you're short on time, you can also set up a snack bar or a food bar and get creative with the names of the foods. For example, "Yoda's Yum Station" could be a dessert bar, Vader's Veggies, or Jedi Jelly Beans are only a few examples.

Don't forget the cakes! With so many symbols and characters representing Star Wars, the options are virtually endless. Think light sabers, starcruisers, Yoda, Storm Troopers, and so much more!

Star Wars Table Styling

Decorating your tables is an essential part of bringing the Star Wars theme into your little ones birthday party. Birthday Express offers Star Wars Rebels plastic table covers, plates, cups, napkins, star centerpieces, and more!
