You can’t make it to Star Wars Weekends, and you’re super bummed. Dude, I feel ya. Because I’m in the same landcruiser.

But you know, there’s a way to make a party out of the most dismal of circumstances. So with that lemonade-out-of-lemons attitude, I’m setting out to host my very own Star Wars Weekend at Home!

Care to join me? I thought you might!

The Star Wars Cookbook Deluxe Set (With Cookie Cutters!)

I’m assuming your Star Wars Weekend will involve a party or two, so of course you’ll want to stay on theme with the eats. Make the task of creating nibbles easy with the The Star Wars Cookbook Deluxe Set. Perfect for whipping up a batch of Yoda Soda and Landonuts. Plus, it comes with a set of cookie cutters, which will transform your favorite cookie recipe into the likenesses of Darth Vader, Yoda, and R2-D2.

I was bowled over by the Death Star Glow Spheres that we featured on the blog the other day! While I haven’t figured out how to get these at home — yet! — I do have the next best thing for your Dark Side Cocktail: Death Star Ice Sphere Molds!

The silicone mold is perfect for making mini Death Stars out of lots of things. Make ice for your intergalactic cocktails, or Dark Side Truffles. How about Darth Butter for your next dinner party? Or Death Star Soaps for the guest quarters?
