Fun and Easy Movie Party

My son LOVED this fun and easy movie party we threw for his sixth birthday! Affordable, festive and all the kids loved it! I love throwing parties and getting together with friends, but I have learned over the years that simple and easy is definitely best! If I try to get to0 fancy or over the top, I end up stressed out and totally ruin the experience for myself and sometimes those around me. No more! When I asked my son what he wanted for his birthday party this year, he decided on a movie party theme and I was so excited! We love movies at our house and I knew that lots of the things I ended up getting would be able to be re-used again and again. 

My son LOVED this fun and easy movie party we threw for his sixth birthday! Affordable, festive and all the kids loved it! I gave myself a budget of $150, and thanks to Oriental Trading that was shockingly easy to stick with! I just went to their “movie night” section and that is where I got the fun gold back drop, the movie reel cupcake stand, the film strip table runner, the popcorn boxes, the movie night napkins, and the movie buff plastic water bottles, which we also used as party favors for each of the kids who attended! Here are some pics for a closer look at the things I got:

The rest of the budget was spent on the candy, pizza for dinner, and printing out the “now showing” sign and the invitations which I designed myself! If you would like to download them for your own party (for free) you can do so here:

Movie Party Invitations 

I just stuck the poster in a frame I already had, but I think it would look cute even just taped to the wall!

My son LOVED this fun and easy movie party we threw for his sixth birthday! Affordable, festive and all the kids loved it! Our theater room has equipment in it, but no furniture right now, so we dragged some mattresses off beds and a couch from another room and the kids loved it! Haha. Our equipment was super affordable (as far as theater equipment goes) and we have loved it so far! I’ll link it at the bottom of the post if anyone is interested!

My son LOVED this fun and easy movie party we threw for his sixth birthday! Affordable, festive and all the kids loved it! The entire treat table took me literally 20 minutes to set up the day of, and all the kids had a blast at the party! Definitely one of the most successful (and least stressful) kids parties I’ve ever thrown!
