A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
…is a party you better get creating a menu for! Star Wars is coming up on its 40th anniversary since the first movie premiered in 1977. Since then, generation after generation has dreamed of becoming Jedi and Sith Lords. Being so multi-generational, it makes this party theme incredible because kids, parents, and grandparents alike will be tapping into their love for this classic sci-fi series. Creative foods to complement a theme like this makes for nearly endless possibilities. Not to mention, hilarious ones. So let’s look at 10 of the best ways to pay homage to Star Wars at your party, with food.
May the fork be with you.
A classic! Where Boba Fett infamously met his demise, the Sarlacc Pit. This bundt cake is one of the easiest and most creative ways to celebrate the more classic Star Wars films, especially for those first generation of fans.
Using hexagon shaped cookies or crackers filled with cheese or marshmallows, makes for easy snacks that look exactly like tie fighters! They’re pretty simple to make, and impressive in your party spread.
Admit it, you just want to make them so you can say “wookie cookie” as many times as socially acceptable during your party. Nobody blames you, it’s freaking awesome. Easily decorated, these wookie cookies will have your “arawwrarrwing” like Chewbacca (and yes, that’s exactly how you type out how he sounds).
While this idea is all about cool presentation, this food display doubles as a serving dish, as the back is opened up with cubes of watermelon for your guests. Easy tutorial with simple cuts, this one is a definite must for your event.
Lightsaber mini pretzels, Star Wars marshmallow cereal mix (or any fun cereal mix) along with nuts and dried fruits, makes for a fun little snack for your party guests. Plus who doesn’t love little tiny mini lightsaber battles? Edible ones!
Yes, it’s a Jabba The Hut made out of hummus. The best part is, it doesn’t matter how globby or ugly your “sculpture” is, because that’s basically just what he looks like. Win!
Remember when Han Solo was dropped into carbonite and frozen? Well, he’s got himself stuck again, this time, frozen in delicious gelatin. While you will need a small Han Solo toy figure to complete this recipe, it’s otherwise just jello. Super simple, extra hilarious. Plus, one lucky party goer will get to “free” Han from his death trap, because there’s no WAY Han Solo would ever die at the hands of the dark side. Errrr….
Using a Darth Vader cookie cutter & press (found easily online), you can create your own little meat filled pastries that make for the perfect finger food for any party!
Made with Star Wars theme silicone ice cube trays, this recipe makes another great hand held treat that will wow your guests with the dark side of gummies, if there ever were to be one.
No real artistic talents needed, these can be made ahead of time and refrigerated in advance so you can focus on the other aspects of your party. Not to mention, Leia’s hair being made out of “Han Solo” Rolo’s is pretty epic.
