Star Wars Day Party 2014

Happy Star Wars Day and, of course May the 4th be with you.

If you weren’t aware today is international Star Wars Day, not something I’ve celebrated greatly in the past. Besides wishing my Star Wars fan friends/family a Happy Star Wars Day.

But, this year my dad decided we should watch all 6 films back to back! Because, why not! We’ve never attempted watching them all in one go before and Artur has never seen any of the films! So he needs educating. πŸ˜‰

I decided to be really geeky and have a Star Wars Day Party with themed food buffet for the occasion – Also my attire was slightly (read: very) Star Wars themed!

Here’s a quick run down on the food we served:

  • Wookie Cookies
  • Leia Buns
  • Vader Veggies
  • Carbonite Jelly
  • Tie Fighters
  • Han Burgers
  • Pizza the Hut
  • Obi-Wan Kabab-ies
  • Sausage Sabers
  • Thermal Detonators (scotch eggs)
  • Bow-Ba Fett Pasta
  • Endorian Chicken
  • Jabba’s Barges
  • Star Wars cupcakes
  • A few non themed items

Along with food labels, which I ended up having to colour in with felt tip pens after running out of yellow printer ink – Opps! I even found a tutorial online, to make Lightsaber styled napkin holders (Thank you Catch My Party)!

As I’m typing (using the WordPress for Android app), we’re currently on episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. πŸ™‚ We decided to watch them in order of release.

While, we’re on the subject of Star Wars. The cast list for Star Wars Episode VII has been announced and Mark Hammil, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew seem to be reprising their roles! πŸ˜€ Nice to hear this.

Side note: My Pinterest feed looked like this, this morning:

    I hope that you had a good Star Wars day, and I haven’t seen all of the movies either. I tend to get bored after the 3rd one. πŸ˜› I will probably watch them once I get my desktop fixed…my current laptop won’t let me watch movies, I can barely watch YouTube videos. πŸ™ I know that a lot of people are happy that Mark Hammil, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, etc. are reprising their roles. Have they released the plot for it yet?
