While the kidlets were snoozing in their beds Mr. Bliss and I realized we were going to have no choice other than use our unfinished super messy basement as a back up. We cleaned up the space and proceeded to hang dozens of black garbage bags from the walls along with shiny silver and gold stars from the ceiling in hopes that it would distract from the typical basement environment. A few hours later we crossed our fingers that Alex would love it and not be disappointed.
The next morning when he saw his party space he was thrilled and we were relieved
Each guest received their very own light saber and jedi robe
|inexpensive pool noodles cut in half with ends wrapped in shiny duct tape|
|Jedi Robes were made from strips of brown bed sheets. All you do is fold the strip in half and cut a hole for the neck, tie the robe together using string or rope. In our case we used some old macrame rope|
|The kids had balloons to hit with the sabers but preferred to hit each other. they had a blast!|
The kids had such a wonderful time and Alex loved every second of it. I guess old school parties might still have an edge on the fancy keeping up with the Jones parties after all
Our little guests left with a goodie bag filled with a chocolate bar which had a customized wrapper, glow in the dark stars, candy and my personal favorite a freezy with holder made out of left over duct tape and a bit of felt to keep little hands warm. Again we were so busy I forgot to take a picture.
