Is there anyone on planet Earth who has not heard of Star Wars? If so, they are certainly living an isolated existence. This movie series has been part of modern culture for three decades, from the movie of the same name (1977) to the most recent movie, Star Wars: TheForce Awakens (2015).
What better way to bring back what many call an epic franchise than to make your party a hit by using Star Wars party supplies? You can bring the original movie back, along with the two movies that completed the original trilogy – The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Few movies have captured the public imagination quite like this one did three decades ago. Lines formed at the box office for the early showings of the original movie. People of all ages stood outside for quite a while, waiting for the theatre to empty so the next showing could get underway. By some estimates, the trilogy and following entertainment brought in a gross amount of more than four billion dollars.
The film series created by George Lucas was set ‘a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away,’ to quote the film. Some of the characters have become cultural icons, immediately recognisable for their appearance or the sound of their voice.
Up to Date
If your party group is most likely to enjoy the latest work from the series, you can have plates depicting storm troopers or plastic table covers with a similar theme. When it is time to leave the fun behind, guests can take some of it with them in loot bags showing the range of Star Wars scenes and characters. Draw attention to your party location with foil balloons featuring Darth Vader, the rebels or even a balloon shaped like R2D2.
Start by choosing hero paper plates or villain paper plates, napkins, plastic cups and much, much more. If the people in your group are more likely to value the original movie characters, you will have a number of choices in the foil-balloon category. One attractive balloon shows the original characters Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Bubble balloons with this theme are also very popular.
You certainly do not want to forget the lightsabres, some of which are available with sound! Be advised that the less-expensive but popular inflatable lightsabre is sometimes in short supply. For those who have young fans around, this should come as no surprise. Of course, the younger set will be very happy with the kid’s set that includes an imitation gun, three sucker darts, watch, a headpiece, a radio, and a chest plate and belt.
No matter which characters are favourites with your party, you can recreate some of the original excitement and stimulate some interesting talk with the colourful and entertaining party supplies based on Star Wars. Maybe you can help battle the Galactic Empire.
