Avé turned FIVE last week, and that meant we needed to do something to celebrate the big weekend. Our sweet kiddos agreed to a couple of fun activities instead of a big party this year. Which FYI – with a newborn in tow that was perfect by me. That being said we wanted to do something fun to celebrate our girl and the big day it was (because hello – FIVE is big). So with Avé’s love of movies, we threw her a movie night birthday party.
Before you leave be sure to check out her pink puppy themed party from last year!

Movie Night Birthday Party
Like I said in the opener this was simple. We did this just to surprise Avé, and it was only for our family, so everything was inexpensive and done on a smaller scale, but it turned out so cute I couldn’t wait to share!
I purchased a lot of the details at Michaels – the fun balloons, plates and straws were perfect for this theme! I used this tutorial for my balloon garland and it was SO HELPFUL!
For the cups and the popcorn containers they were a bit of a DIY. (see below)
I also used my Silhouette to make the letters on the wall for the backdrop!
I didn’t do too much on the DIY front, but happened to have THIS printable vinyl on hand, and made a couple of items that ended up being so cute I wanted to share. For the cups I printed the sheet below and cut them out with scissors. I then placed them on each of the cups. It was so simple and had the cutest outcome!
For the popcorn containers it was slightly LESS simple, but still pretty easy. I bought the popcorn containers I used at the dollar store 2/$1. (but the printable will work for nearly any!)
To use the same printable vinyl one thing you need to do is put 2 sheets of plain white down, THEN your printed sheet. My containers had a scalloped top, so although I traced it with, I cut the vinyl in a straight line not showing the red beneath. It was so simple and honesty was the cutest part of the whole thing.
