Addison was determined to have a movie party for her 9th birthday. I was thrilled because it is one of my favorite party themes! I've done it twice for Carson so it was easy to pull together, but we had to make it really girly for our girly girl. So we added a lot of pink and red to make it the perfect PJ movie birthday party.
Most of the inspiration came from this awesome party on HWTM, found here. The Costco poster print made for the perfect backdrop along with spray painted stars from Party City. Easy!
I made all my own printables in photoshop and printed on glossy paper.
So much fun for each girl to have their own set of tickets to purchase all their favorite movie snacks! Those simple tickets are a big hit at any age and make it so much fun.
The girls loved their VIP passes.
And their personalized movie trays (boxes from the grocery store that hold 12 cans of canned food, spray painted white). It's the perfect size to stash all your your movie treats and goodies.
Once the birthday guests are fed, the party is so simple...they watch a movie. She picked 'The Croods'. No party games or crafts to pull together. The movie is the entertainment and they loved it (coming down multiple times, of course!, for refills on popcorn, candy, and drink).
All her friends were so generous and sweet with thoughtful birthday presents. She's got such great friends! I am so grateful for that!
