As I sit here typing, I have a group of 8-year-old girls watching Barbie's "Princess and The Popstar" in our living room. My youngest daughter and I scoured Pinterest for party ideas and came up with a movie-birthday party theme, complete with a concession stand!
I purchased mini candy bars, individually wrapped Twizzlers, small soda cans and popped popcorn.
I had designed some "ticket" invitations that the girls had to bring in order to be admitted into the movie:
We stuck to a red and white color theme and added balloons and streamers. We also made cupcakes, of course!
On Pinterest, I found a way to make boxed cupcakes taste homemade! They actually turned out pretty well. My mom and I found this pretty (and reasonably priced) cupcake stand at Target:
I also found cute popcorn boxes at Hobby Lobby to use as goodie bags.
Hopefully she will remember this party and how fun it was planning it! :)
