Grab your popcorn (or popcorn cookie, or popcorn cupcake, or popcorn brownie!) and settle in for an entertaining idea from Michelle, at Party Plan-It!  This MOVIE NIGHT party was recently hosted for her husband on Father’s Day- he is a movie buff and Michelle planned the party around some of his favorite flicks- but could be used for birthdays or an any-time get together!  Michelle gathered family friends and they all enjoyed a fun Movie Night complete with fabulous treats and cute decorating ideas!  Roll ’em~

How cute are all of the cookies inspired by movies and made to resemble concession treats ?

There was even a director’s chair for the Guest of Honor!

Such a show-stopping collection!

The fun was just getting started…there were also popcorn cupcakes.  I LOVE how Michelle displayed them using MOVIE REELS!  What a fantastic idea!

Here they are in the reels- Michelle stacked them to create a tower and added photos of her husband in the middle.  Genious!

Popcorn Brownies were made by a friend…

Popcorn with “World’s Greatest Pop”- and I like how the bow is lined with tickets around the outside!

The menu is quite clever and funny- Michelle came up with names to match movies that her husband enjoys…they served “Nacho Libre” Nachoooos!, “Goodfella’s” Pizza and “Major League” Hot Dogs. We had “Luigi’s Spare Tires, “You made me bleed my own blood” Dodgeballs and “Fast Five” Tire Tread along with “Children of the Kettle Corn”.  To drink we had “Sucker Punch”, “El Mariachi’s (From Desperado) Coronas and “Captain Jack’s” Rum and Coke.

I love the fantastic set-up and the movie boxes for carrying your treats!

Such a great way to celebrate Dad or anyone!  So much fun for the whole family and the lucky guests!

There are so many more photos to see from this party!  Stop by Party Plan-It to see it all!

There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 


Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child!
