Thanks to pinterest and amazon for ideas and easy access to party supplies, this party was not near as difficult as it might seem.
I used these fantastic star wars drapes for table covers. At only $15, they are a steal because I will use them for a couple of more parties (two more boys this year) and then we'll make them into pillows for the boys' room.
I googled stars and printed them on yardstick to cut out and tape to my string for the background.
A food marker made these cupcake topper storm troopers a cinch to churn out.
The tutorial for the pool noodle light sabers is here.
These are still getting played with months after the party!
