Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens is hitting theaters soon! It’s a direct sequel to Return of the Jedi, picking up 25 years after the events of that film. The evil First Order, led by the nefarious masked Kylo Ren, is hunting down the remains of the Rebellion across the galaxy. But Han, Leia and Chewie are training a new resistance to stand up to the cruelty of the First Order. Not much else is known about the closely guarded plot–including just how Luke Skywalker is involved.
But the trailer sure makes it look exciting.
It’s already a worldwide phenomenon, and your child is sure to want a Star Wars Force Awakens party for their birthday this year. Luckily, BirthdayExpress has got you covered!

We’ll start with the cake …
It’s a simple chocolate layer cake with vanilla frosting and some star sprinkles, but we added this Force Awakens birthday candle set to spruce it up a bit.
Then we made use of this favor bucket in a fun way.
We used it to house our chex mix.
Our Light Sabers are just cherry rock candy sticks, but the star of the buffet table is truly this plate of Wookie Cookies. They’re just sugar cookies with chocolate frosting and black candies for the eyes. Who doesn’t love a nice Wookie Cookie?
There’s one final cherry on top for this Force Awakens party and it’s being worn by the birthday boy!
Aidan is wearing this very cool Kylo Ren costume, perfect for playing pretend even after the party is over. Kayla is wearing one of our Force Awakens paper masks, make believing as Stormtrooper commander Captain Phasma. And with our cardboard standups, Star Wars latex balloons and starscape backdrop, this corner of the party is just begging for photo ops. Everyone is having a blast!
Just look at those smiling faces! The Force is definitely strong with these two.
