    Love this theme, great touch with the vader-ade and also the lightsaber filled with sixlets. I like the dry erase board idea and that cake looks yummy!

    Hi I love the dessert table background! Can you tell me how you made the lightsavers or what you used as the background. i went to Party City and they don’t carry that type of streamer. Do you mind sharing what you used?

    I love the light sabers! I plan on getting your download for them from Etsy, about how much of a the sixlets did you use to fill them?

    Hi I was wondering where did you get the candy tubes for the lightsabers? Do you still have the website you ordered from?
