My Star Wars Obsession


Star Wars & Pancakes!!


 I don't think I've ever shared my love of Star Wars with you guys...hmmm I guess there's no time like the present. With the new movie coming out I decided to turn our first snow day into a Star Wars Movie Day!! I wanted to think of something fun, interesting and yummy, so I went all out and created a Star Wars themed pancake bar with all the trimmings, I even found some themed pancakes at the grocery store. I wrapped the table top in a fun holiday themed paper that I found at the toy store. I just used regular wrapping paper and covered the top then tucked the edges up under the edges. It looked so much better than any ole' table cloth, and it gave a bright and colorful look to the whole look. From there I took several small condiment bowls, and filled them with lots of different toppings and garnishes like fresh fruit, nutella, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. I like to use the fresh fruit more than anything because its so yummy, colorful and healthy.
As you can see the colorful appeal of the toppings looks fantastic atop of the theme paper.


 Since it was a pancake bar I decided to go with the breakfast theme and make some strawberry orange juices, I also added in a bowl of donuts, crunchy peanut butter, pancake syrup, and sprinkles. Then because it was a movie day, I added in couple of (overflowing with popcorn) movie theater popcorn boxes, the ones with the red and white stripes. When I see those the first thing I think of is the movie theater. I also scattered popcorn all over the table to tie the movie theme in and give it a cohesive look. To top it off and finish the look, I added some of the cutest Star Wars figurines here and there on the table. I added in a plate of fried eggs and turkey bacon, to go with the pancakes and OJ. All in all I have to say I'm pretty pleased with the final results, let's just say I accomplished the idea of something fun and different...lol!!






Look at these pancakes...the cutest ever right? They have six different faces of the characters from the movies, I couldn't of found anything better or more fitting for my little idea. You ever get a crazy idea that you just have to follow through on?..lol!! Let's just say that by the end of the day we where more than pumped and ready to see the new movie. Did you see it yet?? I won't put out any spoilers, I'll just say it's amazing!! If you're a Star Wars family like we are you're gonna LOVE IT!!


I hope you guys enjoyed my little craziness as much as Rob did, it was fun and like I said something different. I'm just realizing Christmas is almost here...Wow this year went by so so fast! I'm so excited about spending time with my family, and the possibilities of a whole new year of new experiences. I'm also super eager to go to New York Fashion Week in February, especially since it will be cold weather. I love cold weather because of the fashion, nothing is better than a cuddly and warm North Face fleece, a cute pair of skinny jeans and over the knee boots. Now that's a killer look in my opinion, and it's comfortable. As you can see in the images below I was outside enjoying the tiny bit of snow we did get in the same exact style. I'm excited for more snow because I love sitting by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa, snuggling up with cute little Piper. There's nothing better, and that's a kind of cozy you just can't get when it's 80 degrees outside...am I right? 
I have to admit though, I will always enjoy my ice cream...cold or not...lol!! Piper even got in on the first snow fun with me, but for her it was a first snow in two ways...or as they say the last first. She has never experienced snow before, I'm so glad she loves it as much as her Mama. She stayed nice and warm in her cute little coat as she frolicked around sniffing and exploring. With her crazy curiosity I can see I'm in for it, you guys have a wonderful week and stay warm!!
Also Have a Very Happy Holiday & New Year Everyone

    ReplyDelete
  118. I didn't think my grandsons were that big on Star Wars except the light sabers but they sure have become Star Wars fans within the last year. So glad you told me about the pancakes. I haven't seen them in the stores. They would love. They would also love the whole setup. We have movie night at least once a month usually twice. This is a great idea. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I am older and remember the wonder at the original Star Wars. I think we saw hat movie maybe a dozen times or more. We were obsessed. I recently saw the original again, and thought how the special effects have sure changed! Back then we thought the effects were real.
    Love these pancakes, and I am glad to see an interest in this movie again, I dont think anyone who made it exp-ected it to go this far. I am still sad about Carrie Fisher..
