I'm in full party-planning mode for Caleb. With Christmas coming and all of the commitments that go with it, I want to have everything done so that I don't have to stress myself out over the break.
Guess what kind of party we're having?!
Star Wars. The boy is obsessed with movies he has never seen.
I did the invitations all in one night. My inspiration came from this on Etsy, but I made some changes and added more details. The "sword" part isn't really pointed like the person did on Etsy, so I made it more rounded. I also hand-decorated the hilt so that each one is unique.
The hilt is actually the invitation. When you open it up, it says,
"Six ago in a galaxy far, far away, Caleb was born. It is now time for him to fulfill his destiny and become a Jedi knight. Join us for Jedi training and birthday fun."
The party itself will actually be Jedi training. The kids will all be getting their very own pool-noodle-turned-light sabers, and they'll do a variety of exercises and sparring techniques with it.
A real Jedi will be leading the training. A real Jedi!
Caleb is SO excited. I cannot even tell you how much he talks about this.
For me...I'm not real into Star Wars, but this is a pretty easy party, as far as planning goes. Matt's in charge of all of the training stuff, so I don't have to do anything! Give 'em a light saber and let 'em have at it! :)
Let's hope it doesn't get too chaotic....oy.
