The planning begins...My son's birthday party

Ever since the kids' first birthday, I get excited to plan their party! I loved their parties when they were little. The excitement on their faces with family and friends all around and when the open their gifts and eat their cake! I loved picking out the theme with their help of course!! I used to make the cakes to go with the theme for example on year for Nathan's birthday, I made a dinosaur cake. I loved that cake, it was fun to make. I wish I had a digital pic of it to show y'all! My most recent cake I made was for Alexis' 10th birthday. It was a 'pinspiration' of course!! She had her party at the local gym and their indoor pool so went with a Luau theme. How many times can I write 'their' in this post?

The Luau Cake! Easy and Fun to make! 

Well my Nathan will be turning 9 years old at the end of this month. He has asked for a Star Wars themed party this year. So what do I do?? Turn to Pinterest for help!! I've been pinning crazy lately and found a lots of great ideas!!!

I found these free printable invites. Printed and mailed out!

Name changed of course

His request was for hamburgers and a cookie cake. Done, I can do that! I found great ideas for the foods to be served like Darth Vader Taters ( tater tots), Jar Jar Links in a Blanket (pigs in a blanket), Leia Buns (pecan pinwheels) and more. I am excited to plan this party and I'm not even a big Star Wars fan. But what we do for our babies right!! I will be taking lots of pictures and will have a blog post on this hope to be fabulous Star Wars party!!
