Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Yellow Loop. Today we are sharing ideas to celebrate Star Wars Day.
You can celebrate with a “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” movie night fitting for both die-hard fans and newcomers to the galaxy far, far away.
A Long Time Ago
Star Wars is pretty big deal in our house. I remember my parents taking me to see the original movie (A New Hope) when I was only 2. I absolutely loved it. Every character’s name was immediately memorized and I secretly wanted to be Princess Leia when I grew up. James also grew up with a passion for Star Wars. We couldn’t wait for the day to come when our kids were ready to join our Star Wars alliance. Coincidentally, the time came at the exact moment a new movie was about to join the franchise. The arrival of Episode VII: The Force Awakens was the perfect opportunity to introduce the original three movies in preparation for the 7th installment.
With Star Wars Day (May 4th) only a few days away, we decided to have a Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie night. Just like with our mutual admiration for the films, this night became a family affair. I was in charge of the menu, while the kids took over the decorating.
Star Wars Inspired Menu
Our menu consisted of:
Kid Friendly Decor
The kids decided to decorate our movie space with as many Star Wars toys as they could find in the house. We had everything from the Millennium Falcon to character figures to popcorn buckets. It just goes to show that it doesn’t take much to decorate for a movie night. All you have to do is look around the house.
To Be Continued…
Until the next two movies in this new trilogy happen, we’re content with watching this one on repeat. May the force be with you!
