Star Wars Invitation Ideas

The first step to throwing an epic Star Wars party is to set the tone with unforgettable invitations. These creative ideas will get your guests excited and ready to enter a galaxy far, far away. Here are ten unique Star Wars-themed invitation ideas that will captivate your guests from the moment they receive them.


  1. Hologram Message Invitation: Create a digital hologram invitation using video editing software. The invitation could feature a holographic projection of a character from the game, like a droid or a Twi’lek dancer, inviting the guests to Jaffa the Hump’s palace.

  2. Data Disk Invitation: Send physical invitations designed to look like Star Wars data disks or holocrons. These could include the game details and a small LED light that glows when opened, adding to the futuristic feel.

  3. Lightsaber Hilt Scroll: Create invitations rolled into a scroll and inserted into a small replica of a lightsaber hilt. When the guests pull out the scroll, they can read the details of the game.

  4. Wanted Poster Invitation: Design invitations to look like “Wanted” posters from the Star Wars universe, featuring each guest’s character. The poster could include details of the crime, the suspect’s name, and the invitation to the event.

  5. Imperial Transmission: Send invitations that look like official Imperial transmission documents, complete with the Empire’s emblem. The document could be styled as a confidential order summoning the guest to the palace.

  6. Starship Boarding Pass: Create boarding pass-style invitations, as if the guests are being transported to Nar Shaddaa on a starship. The pass could include flight details, destination information, and the date and time of the event.

  7. Secret Rebel Mission Briefing: Design invitations that resemble a secret Rebel Alliance mission briefing. The briefing document could provide covert details about the mission to Jaffa’s palace and the need to uncover the murderer.

  8. Droid Delivery: Use small toy droids (like R2-D2 or BB-8) to deliver the invitations. Each droid could carry a hidden compartment with the invitation inside. This can be a fun and interactive way to receive the invite.

  9. Cantina Invitation: Create invitations styled after a cantina menu or flyer from the Mos Eisley Cantina, inviting guests to a special event at Jaffa’s palace. This could include a mix of Star Wars-themed drinks and foods listed as part of the invite.
