May the 4th be with you on this Star Wars Day!
Today we are sharing a BB-8 Star Wars Birthday Party in honor of one of our favorite “holidays!” Although we can’t share the stationery from this party because of all of the awesome (and trademarked) Star Wars components, we are sure that you’ll find some inspiration for the next Star Wars party at your house!
The birthday boy is absolutely obsessed with Star Wars, and BB-8 is one of his favorite characters. How perfect that it was his 8th birthday?
This party was by far one of our favorite parties we’ve ever done. The details for inspiration that the Star Wars movies provide is compared to none other.

One of our favorite treats were the BB-8 sugar cookies, made simple with a custom cookie cutter some painted fondant:
