Our second themed dinner took place on May 4th.
Embracing our inner Jedi, we planned a “May the Fourth be with You” dinner.
After a few hard days we were in need of some light hearted fun. Grace and I took the lead for this family fun night since the boys were busy with school and Toby, Zach and Molly were back at work.
The dinner preparations began with the menu. Relying on Pinterest for inspiration, we came up with an easy menu, using food already on hand, and molded it to our theme using catchy names.
Once the menu was decided we started on decorations…
Grace used her artistic talents to turn leftover gold plates into C-3PO,
And we rolled green napkins into lightsabers.
We also created lightsabers for each guest using water cannons and duct tape. Our original plan was to have a water gun fight after dinner using the “lightsabers,” but cold temperatures and biting wind changed our minds. We decided to save that fun for another day.
When the work crew was nearing home, Grace and I began getting dinner ready. By the time they walked through the door the Hans-burgers were grilled,
The Yoda Soda was poured,
And we were ready for our “May the Fourth be with You” party.
Our efforts were appreciated and everyone enjoyed our Jedi dinner.
We ended the evening by watching the first three episodes of Star Wars: The Mandalorian on Disney+.
