Star Wars Inspired Recipes
Every one knows the best way to celebrate something is through food! The Star Wars saga is home to some pretty interesting food choices like blue milk to roasted Porg and Meiloorun Fruit, there’s no shortage of food for our favorite heroes and villains.
If traditional Star Wars foods are a bit too out there for you, we suggest adapting your favorite recipes to include The Force. This could mean decorating your desserts so they represent your favorite characters and movie moments or maybe making a pizza shaped like Yoda. The entire galaxy is yours so have fun with it!
If you need some inspiration we suggest checking out the official Star Wars website for some fun recipes.
Channel Your Favorite Character Through Your Appearance
Nothing says Star Wars Day quite like cosplaying as your favorite character. The best part about celebrating at home is that you don’t need to go all out if you don’t want to. If you want to then go right ahead!
If you’re looking to cosplay a bit simpler this year, we definitely suggest wearing your favorite Star Wars shirt or even doing a fun Star Wars inspired make-up tutorial.
