Movie Night Party – A 2 Thumbs Up Hit

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Marc and Mary’s Movie Night was a complete success both on the budget and the fun that was had.I had a great time spending the week making decorations using many of the things I had on hand. Each child was told to arrive with their ticket(invitation) which was than traded for 4 one dollar bills (play money) to be used when buying movie treats. After dinner of hot dogs, chips, fruit,  veggie and punch a drawing wa held. The movie tickets were entered into a drawing in which each child one a chance to pick a prize from our prize box.

After the prizes were selected the children lined up for a turn at the concession stand where they were given to opportunity to buy treats, all treats were a $1 a piece allowing each child to select 4. The concession stand offered soda, popcorn, and snack size candies. Once the snacks were purchased everyone sat down to watch the animated movie ” Alpha and Omega” after the movie we had the cake. Presents were opened and each child was sent home with a bag of chocolate covered popcorn.

Both Marc and Mary have said this was their best birthday ever. I think it was so successful because they were very involved in the set up and only close friends were at the party. In the past we have had larger groups of guests inviting their classmates not all of who relate well.
