We decorated with black streamers, silver balloons, a silver foil door, a few black balloons with white stars on them, and a handful of signs shown here. There was a large banner on the garage door made with printer paper over a half Star Wars tablecloth that said, "Arrived at Pookie's party, you have."
Eight years ago a baby boy was born. His name was Pookie and he was strong with the force. Hidden away on a remote planet called Earth, Pookie's Jedi training has been progressing well. But now the Sith have learned of the boy and seek him diligently. To overcome this threat Pookie will need the help of others. So a call has been sent out in the form of this invitation to come and learn the ways of the Jedi. Only with the strength of the Jedi can the Sith be defeated.
Please note - you may arrive in costume - as the Sith may be watching but please leave all weapons at home. All you need will be provided. If you dare to accept his challenge please inform the Jedi council at 555-JEDI with your urgent reply. May the force be with you!
The kids loved the party, games, and food. But I think the parents appreciated the decorations the best. In retrospect, I would do all black balloons in the decorations. The silver balloons almost made it seem like a 25th wedding anniversary party.
After the party, I took Gabbers, Bun, and Ham to see the Princess and the Frog. Bun and Ham were free since they're under six. Gabbers was $2 and I was $4. Pookie didn't want to go. We tried really hard to convince him. But he wanted to play with his new toys. Danny stayed home with Pookie and the twins and cleaned up from the birthday carnage. He even recorded the babies on camera. But I can't figure out how to show that video. My video button disappeared-- as did my spellcheck button. hmm. Anyways, Danny didn't want me to show it because it has him in a little portion. But I thought it was cute to see the giggly babies. Whatever.
