We have many more beer drinkers than wine drinkers at our Star Wars parties. Yet we have always only had regular, “boring”, non-Star Wars beer. Well, thanks to a post by Red 5 Mom and a few of our friends, this year, we finally had beer fit for a Star Wars Cantina.
I have mentioned that my son wants to be a Jawa for this year’s May the Fourth be with You Party. With the costume (almost) done, I could finally do my planned Jawa Java post! There were just a few problems:
JUST 1 WEEK LEFT!! We are now in full planning mode here at M4P Central. Today, I am finalizing our Star Wars Party Menu, and I figured I would share it with you guys in case you want to know what OUR favorites are 🙂 (or if you just need some help with your planning.)
Before we get to the Menu though, here is how the rest of the planning is going:
There are always a lot of kids at our Star Wars parties. But, I would totally be lying if I said we did this for the children. Nope, it entirely for us adults! So along with the PG-rated beverages, we naturally have some potables too, just for the adults.
For last year’s May the Fourth be with You Party we made our own wine labels – both Red and White. So the question for our guests became, Dark or Light? Empire or Rebels? Sith of Jedi? Unbridled passion or cool rational thought? Make sure you watch your friends’ wine choices – they might say more about them than you would have guessed.
Should Hoth Chocolate be served Hot or Cold? Hot, because it is a pun, and the people here at M4P are awfully fond of puns? Or cold, because, well, everything on Hoth is frozen? An internal M4P poll came out divided (3 to 2 in favor of Hot). So we ended up making both: a Hot(h) version, AND a cold Hoth-like version. Both simple, yummy, and made with a secret Swedish ingredient.
The Force Awakens comes out in 2 weeks. You already have your tickets. You already have a babysitter (if you could find one willing to be at your house until 4 am on a school night. Though I am thinking the Star Wars movie release date and the day after should be considered national holidays.)
You probably already have some sort of costume. (If not, we have plenty of DIY and store bought ideas here on the blog – just remember, no masks or weapons at the cineplex!)
So the remaining question is, have you planned your food?
