Party Food, if you know me by now, is obviously my favorite… We specialize in funny food puns. People look forward to it. So this Star Wars Party Food was no exception. We got creative. Some were very easy and had been done before over the Interwebs while others were new. Enjoy these classics from our menu and I can’t wait to see what you make up for your own party!
Star Wars Party Food Ideas | SNACKS
Some of the classics were of course the Wookie Cookies. I’ve seen those around before. We used the Little Debbie Oatmeal Pies with some black piped icing and white chocolate chips.
Princess Leia Cinnabuns was also an easy choice. I just bought some snack rolls, unpackaged them, and DONE!
Our Yoda Soda was super easy to make too. I used a gallon of the Hawaiian Apple Punch, Squirt, and 7-Up.
Pretzel Lightsabers were a quick DIY that the boys got to help do. I bought my favorite Wilton Candy Melts in 3 colors and filled a tall glass to make them reach deep enough. Then the boys covered them in the correct color sprinkles before they dried. You can catch our Behind the Scenes DIY over on the Events Blog HERE: Behind the Scenes | Star Wars Party
I bought a few ring pops because Wyatt loves them, to label as Thermal Detonators and of course we used Teddy Grahams as Ewoks. Both were just displayed in a labeled container for the party.
Star Wars Party Food | LUNCH
The biggest things we served at this party, around the lunch hour were some of the most fun and yet complicated. I typically plan my parties around 11am-1pm because we’re feed people a “walking lunch” we call it. So, with that, I try to keep all meals like finger food or appetizer size. Remember Cash’s Safari Party with the Snake Sub-Sandwich? Yep, small portions again for this party.
Luke Sky-Water was a must have for this party. I always make it a point to have individual beverage servings for kids they can write their names on. With these, I just printed the label and taped a glow stick to them to act as a lightsaber.
Pizza Charcuterie Board
The Pizza Charcuterie Board- This was a GREAT idea we had and a really cheap way to feed a lot of people. It was tricky though and I only pulled it off because I had 4 moms helping do it! Thankfully too, I have a double over. We bought You-Bake Pizzas from Papa Murphy’s and baked them at home, then cut them into sticks.
It was a circus in the kitchen for a bit trying to bake, cut, keep warm and display, but those Mom-Friends pulled it off. I truly did nothing to achieve this look but give a bit of directions and my amazing friends, Wyatt’s BFF’s Mom, put it all together for me. Thanks Kristine!
I had the idea because I wanted pizza, but small so kids could take a few and dip them. I also wanted it to look a bit like that Star Wars scene in the desert with Jabba the Hutt. I think it turned out perfectly and everyone demolished it in no time. The dips were just marinara, pesto and a spicy Italian sauce.
Boba Fetta Pasta
I have a quick and easy Pasta Salad Recipe I always go to for pot-lucks. For this party, I was able to use it and just add in some fetta with Bowtie noodles. I made another version with gluten-free noodles too, which is why you see two separate bowls of it.
Star Wars Cake & Cupcakes
One of my biggest tips for staying under budget with a birthday party is to simplify your desserts. Really, when it comes to a kids party, cake is cake. In my experience the kids won’t a appreciate a $95 cake anymore than a $24.99 cake. Until they do, I always opt for a dressed up budget friendly option. We order them from our Roth’s Market. This was a simple one layer cake that they airbrushed to look like a galaxy. I then added a Death Star Chocolate Mold and some Action Figures.
You can see a lot of our chocolate candies around the food from these candy molds! I love them I found them on Amazon and they added a lot to the party for being so inexpensive! Star Wars Silicone Molds
Another SUPER easy DIY were these BB8 cupcakes. With just a few specifically shaped sprinkles we were able to bring him to life. I did order orange-flavored cupcakes though to make sure the colors came together. I also got these silver foil cupcake liners.
For the other, chocolate cupcake, Wyatt wanted space ships to be blasting out of them. So with orange icing, we designed the Shuttle Cupcake Toppers in the Etsy Shop.
We hope you have the most amazing Star Wars Party Food imaginable at your next party.
