Pinterest Challenge - Week 3: May the force be with you!

The birthday girl and Hoth

Happy birthday Carrie or as Yoda would say, "have a happy birthday you will."  Every year my girlfriends and I choose a theme for our birthdays.  This year's theme is movies.  Carrie chose "Star Wars."  She even got a puppy for her birthday and named it Hoth (if you know Star Wars, you will know what Hoth is).  For Carrie's birthday party we used all kinds of Pinterest ideas.

The awesome table

-Darth cheddar (cheese its)
-Yoda soda (lime sorbet and 7up)
-Han Solo Rolo's (Rolo's)
-Light saber pretzels (pretzels dipped in vanilla white chocolate and covered in sprinkles)
-Boba Feta Salad
-CP3O Pizza
-Princess Leih cupcakes (cupcakes with a Leih face and two oreos on the sides for her buns)

For the decor we used a black table cloth with cut out stars, Star Wars action figures, and a "have a happy birthday you will" sign.  My friend also found a "Star Wars" channel on Pandora to set the mood.

Puppies and babies!

One more adorable puppy picture.

 We also played a couple of the bun on Princess Leih and light saber balloon toss.

Light Sabers for balloon toss game.

Nothing is cooler than a bunch of 30 something year olds having a "Star Wars" party.
