Addison's party was a lot of fun, but that's not to say there weren't a few hiccups. My fault entirely. I sent the invitations out, planning on showing the movie Rango. That is, until my friend informed me a few days before that the movie had some adult language and quite a bit of violence. Nice. So - at the last minute, we had to change the movie. That would have been all fine and good, except that I planned the party around a two hour movie, and the new movie was just over an hour. Needless to say - we were done with the movie, cake and presents...with 50 minutes remaining before the parents came to pick up their kids. Yikes! We improvised, and played some games, and all in all - I think the kids had a great time!
When all of the guests arrived, I had set up a red carpet and logo backdrop for them to pose with Addison (I am planning to use the photos for the thank you cards).
We rented out the theater in my clubhouse, and I set up a table in the room with popcorn boxes for the kiddos.
The kids watched the movie, but I admit, we had a few adults standing guard in the hallway to corral them into the bathroom, and when they couldn't sit still....jeez.
Outside, I set up the table for the cupcakes and refreshments. I ordered plain white cupcakes from Publix, and decorated them with silver and gold metallic star sprinkles, and some cupcake toppers that I made.
The cupcakes were a hit - Addie obviously enjoyed them!!
For the favors, I bought some plastic popcorn boxes from the Dollar Tree and filled them with fruit snacks, a bag of microwave popcorn, and a movie star trophy. I finished them off with a custom label for the occasion.
It was a hot day, but a great day. We had a lot of fun, and for the most part, it went off without a hitch. Happy 5th Birthday Sweet Girl!!
