STAR WARS THEMED FOOD
Don’t worry…. putting all this Star Wars 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.
And there are plenty of no-cook options, too!
STAR WARS PARTY PRINTABLES
I’m always up for a good pun, so setting out a Star Wars printable is a great way for everyone to know how that food ties in with the Star Wars theme.
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!
STAR WARS PARTY MAIN DISHES

STAR WARS FOOD IDEAS: SIDE DISHES
7 Leia Dip
Everyone loves this easy 7-layer chip dip. You can make it advance and pull it from the fridge when you’re ready to party!
You’ll need some chips for that dip, so grab a bag of Scoops Tortilla chips for Trooper Scoopers!
For this Star Wars food, prepare kabobs using fruit, veggies, or meat!
If you want a side dish from the dark side, bake some tater tots!
Millenium Falcon never tasted so good until you make it Millenium fal-corn. Serve corn on the cob or cooked frozen corn depending on what your main dishes are.
It wouldn’t be a Star Wars party without light sabers! Serve thick pretzel rods (plain or chocolate covered) or skewers with green grapes on them.
Another super easy Start Wars recipe that doesn’t require any work on your part: Lay’s chips!
