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!
My hubby is nothing, if not a thoughtful man. Why else would he get me the new Game of Thrones season set, EVERY year for my birthday…. Why else would he happily enable my Star Wars Lego Mini-fig habit? Why on earth would he rewire all our Internet cables in the house so we, I mean I, could get caught up on Breaking Bad on Netflix before the last season started on TV, if it wasn’t out of love for me?
And if giving your wife the complete series set of Battlestar Galactica “just because,” isn’t romantic, then I don’t know what is…
Well, maybe Star Wars Jewelry…
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.
Despite my cheese carving endeavors, I have never been much of a pumpkin carver. We do the basic monster faces every year, and even that is under some protest on my part. Having spent countless hours playing with the kids and their Darth Tater, I am however, really good at sticking plastic arms and legs into fake produce.
Since I am a kid at heart, I figured I am allowed to enjoy trick-or-treating as much as the kids do. But I don’t dress up. Well, I don’t dress up MUCH.
The trick is to dress up enough to reinforce the theme, but not so much that you take the focus away from the little ones…

In my day job, I spend a lot of time designing food labels and packaging. So it was just a matter of time before we started making fake Star Wars food labels for our parties. This was my first stab, and I am really happy to be sharing them with you guys. Feel free to download the pdf or the jpegs below and use for your own parties.
