{Celebrate} Byron's 9th Birthday Pizza & Movie Night

Last week was Byron's Birthday and he celebrated by having a Pizza and Movie Night with his friends at home!  I wanted to make it special by creating a Candy & Snack Bar for the kids so they could help themselves to popular Movie snacks such as Popcorn, Jaffa's, Pick n Mix, Maltesers, Choc Honeycomb, snakes and mini coca cola bottles.   l provided some noodle boxes which l decorated with some red & white Ribbon and Printables from Poshtique Designs.

Misty from Poshtique Designs is wonderful and l used her Movie Birthday Printables http://www.etsy.com/listing/69664236/movie-birthday-party-printable-movie which come with a banner, ticket invitations, labels and 2" circles which l featured throughout the party.  I started with the invitations a few weeks prior to the party and created some excitement by giving each child a Jumbo box of popcorn with their ticket invitation to get them all in the mood!

My clever hubby created the Candy Bar canopy for me from some dowel l had left from Audrey's Fairy Party and some red stripe fabric from Spotlight.  I  attached the canopy to our old kitchen trolley and made this the focal point for the party.  I had found some Large Red Perspex Stars that someone was throwing away and thought they would be perfect for the back drop and then picked up a roll of skinny red and white stripe fabric from the op shop for $5.  I purchased some admit one tickets in red and yellow from Princess and the Pirate http://www.theprincessandthepirate.com.au/ and used these like streamers as well as purchasing the candy scoops, yellow striped straws and the vintage chalk labels which really helped give the party a retro feel which l was trying to achieve.



This year l put a bit of a spin on the desserts made for Byron's Party and made some Mini Hamburger Cupcakes with French Fry Cookies.  I was inspired by Bakerella http://www.bakerella.com/fast-food-fun/ and used her tutorial on how to make these cute fast food desserts using the link above.  I also used Bakerella's fries template to put the cookies in and attached one of the 2" Circles from Poshtique Designs to complete the look!  Byron's Birthday Cake this year was a Pizza Blondie Cake which was delicious and too easy to make so l have included the recipe for you to try!  I also made some caramel popcorn ice cream and put these into little dixie cups and attached another of Poshtique Designs 2" Circles to add some more retro flair!

  4. Hi Danielle,
    Not sure if you are in Australia but I got the popcorn boxes from Coles and l have seen them at BIG W! They are on the clip rails where they always hang up extra things and not on the shelves! Think it is home living brand or something like that??
    Hope this helps!
    Take Care
