I’m throwing everything into a Mandalorian watch party when season two launches on October 30th (whoo!). because to 2020, we haven’t had many reasons to celebrate. Of course, I’m using the word “party” loosely here — I’ll be streaming the show with my immediate family members In our own home, and perhaps adding a few far-away guests via Disney GroupWatch.

If you plan on screening outdoors, check out out our recommendations for affordable projectors for your backyard, and if it’s in your budget, grab a heat lamp (if you can still find one in stock) to keep everyone comfy outdoors.

Here’s how to make the show’s launch fun and festive, with food, activities, and even clothes to welcome back our two heroes. This is the way.

Host a Mando and Baby Yoda pumpkin carving contest

While you technically shouldn’t try this while watching the show (because, knives!), I think it would be a perfect pre-game activity. If you have kids who are too young to wield a kitchen knife, try drawing on the Mandalorian or Baby Yoda with these stencils from Inky Printables with a Sharpie.

Sorry, family, I’m not hustling to decorate for a party with no guests. But I will say this awesome Star Wars periodic  table of characters from Super Hero Prints has almost convinced me, since it’s so clever and easy to download and print instantly. If you’re the kind of person who puts up seasonal prints, I think this would be a great addition for Mandalorian Season.

The Child frog legs treats

You’ve got to re-enact the frog-legs-sticking-out-of-baby-Yoda’s-mouth scene before the night is over! Since this became such an iconic moment in internet memedom, I think serving frog legs will generate a few laughs, even if you have to suspend table manners temporarily. Unless your kids are much more adventurous eaters than mine are, try Haribo gummy frogs or these rainforest gummy frogs instead of real frog legs.

 

Mandalorian themed recipes for a watch party, like the Spicy Vegetable Stew from The Modern Proper

Mandalorian Stew

According to Star Wars lore, the name for the traditional stew served by Mandalorians translates to “eat at your own risk.” And while I’m hoping this Spicy Vegetable Stew from The Modern Proper isn’t quite that spicy, it still looks like it packs a ton of flavor. Serve this as a main dish to balance out all the treats.

I never said this was going to be a balanced meal sugar-wise, all right? I just think that getting our hygge on with a warm beverage and cozy robe a la Baby Yoda episode four is what we all need to restore some order to a galaxy very close to home. So snuggle up with a hot mug of cocoa, tea, or — hell, coffee, if you’re as sleep deprived as I am! — and this sweet Baby Yoda mug from Doodle Gift shop.

Mando + Baby Yoda Cookies

We love supporting amazing Etsy artists, and since these Mandalorian cookies from Nicolettsy are way beyond my skill level, I think they just might be worth the price. Just note that they do take 2-3 weeks to dispatch so you might have to save these for one of the later episodes.
