Throwing a Star Wars party? Check out these fun & creative Star Wars party food ideas using popular names from Star Wars, plus other simple party ideas! Perfect for birthday parties or May 4th, the unofficial Star Wars Day.
HOW TO THROW A STAR WARS PARTY
Since I live with a house full of Star Wars fans, we couldn’t let May 4th pass without celebrating. If you didn’t already know, May 4th is the unofficial Star Wars Day, also known as “May the 4th Be With You” day.
To celebrate, I let the biggest Star Wars fans in our family choose from a list of all the Star Wars food ideas. They picked their favorite 6 Star Wars-themed food.
We had so much fun creating a fun Star Wars backdrop and food that goes along perfectly with the Star Wars characters.
OUR STAR WARS PARTY FOOD LINE-UP:
- Boba Fettuccine
- Obi Wan Kabob-ies – fruit kabobs
- Han Rolo – Rolo cookies
- Luke Skywater – water
- Vater Ade – Gatorade
- Edible Ewoks – Teddy Grahams
- Trooper Scoopers – Scoops tortilla chips
- 7 Leia Dip – 7 layer dip
- Millenium Falcorn- corn
Putting all this food together really didn’t take much more effort than a normal dinner would have. With some planning ahead, most of it was prepared early, including the Rolo Cookies, and fruit kabobs.

DIY STAR WARS PARTY BACKDROP
To set the stage for your own party, you can make this easy DIY Backdrop.
All you need is:
- square peg board (spray painted black)
- Create-Your-Own Banner Kit (from Target)
I have used this pegboard for other parties, including Halloween, so it really only took me a few minutes to put the letters on!
I love how this backdrop took me all of about 5 minutes to make, but it ties everything in together!
