Movie Night Birthday Party

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!

The Details

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! 

I also surprised her with new Pajamas these PJ’s are SO SOFT and she is IN LOVE. 

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!

DIY Details

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!

Pink and star themed cup

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.
