One of the biggest complaints about the original Star Wars trilogy is that the Stormtroopers can’t shoot. No, let me take that back, they can shoot… they just couldn’t hit the side of a barn if their lives depended on it (which, of course, it often does). Looking back though, it is also one of the (many) things that makes the series so fun and special.
Who needs Godiva when there are Darth Vader Chocolates? (DIY)
Give her (or him) a box of these chocolates and say: You take my breath away…
We geeks want to be wooed on Valentines Day as much as everyone else! And nothing will prove your love and understanding more than making your own Darth Vader Maraschino Cherry filled Chocolates for the Star Wars fan in your life! (At least that’s what the Hubby tells me) They look impressive, but it can be our secret that they are REALLY quick and easy to make!
Drawing on our Imagination! (DIY Star Wars Crayons)
One of the marvelous things about the Star Wars franchise is how it engages people’s imagination. Just like countless other kids in the late 70’s, the hubby spent a good chunk of his time drawing TIE-fighters and pretending to be shooting at stormtroopers. Now a generation later, our kids are drawing X-wings and having Lightsabers fights.

Mos Eisleys Cantina (DIY Beverage station)
No proper Star Wars party should be without a Star Wars Cantina or Chalmun’s Cantina, as it is actually called. Cos-play can be serious work, and lots of costumes are really warm (just ask my daughter after wearing her Chewie costume for 4 hours). So you need to make sure your guests are well hydrated. Just promise that all lightsabers are checked at the entrance – we suspect all your guests will want to leave with all their limbs intact.
Pepper-Encrusted Death Star Blue Cheese Ball
When we were working on putting together the Tosche-ese Station, I was trying to figure out which cheeses mold well, so I tried lots of different varieties. Some worked great, some were complete failures, and one ended up a happy, yummy accident.
