If this is the first page you've landed on, let me give you a quick introduction. I'm Matt James, a professional party planner, and the purpose of this site is to show you the most creative way you can use regular, shop-bought party supplies that can be found in most stores.
Not everyone has the craft skills of Martha Stewart or the time to spend several days with a glue gun making things from scratch. It's fine to use shop-bought decorations and
supplies—as long as you choose them carefully and know the best way to put them all together. So I'll share a few simple tips and trade secrets that anyone can use to add
some creative touches to your party—whatever your budget.

Surprisingly, there are actually very few official Star Wars birthday invitations available that can be customized. I suspect this is because it is cost prohibitive for most bespoke invitation suppliers to license the brand name and character's likeness.
However, many independant graphic designers offer to customize Star Wars invitations using copyrighted images as long as they are for one-time personal use. They state that the character images used are free, are not being sold, and ownership remains with the copyright holders. They also state that you are paying the designer for a creative service; their time spent personalizing your item, and that the product can only be used for one-time personal use, such as birthday parties, and can not be re-sold for any reason.
If you fancy doing something a little more creative, check out my tip below explaining how professional party planners often create 3D invitations.
I think it’s important to create a big first impression, so I always try to incorporate some sort of object with the invitations—rather than just relying on a traditional printed card (see examples here). This is a little trick that’s often used by professional party planners to make invitations stand out. People just love to receive unusual invitations. It really captures their imagination and gets them excited about the party.
