Here is what Caryl said about the party- ”We just celebrated my son Tucker’s 11th birthday and we wanted to do something a little different. He was past the age of legos and super heros so we needed to think of a theme that would be COOL to a tween.
We decided on an outdoor movie theme mixed in with afternoon pool time. The kids arrived around 4pm and immediately jumped in the pool. They worked up an appetite with pizza. As the sun was setting, we started the movie and they all huddled together.
The dessert table was a concession stand that had all the movie time favorites from licorice to starbursts to skittles to popcorn. And of course a party wouldn’t be complete without a film reel cake.
The party printables were done by Adria of Anders Ruff and my mom. I gave my mom the vision of what I was going for and she drew the main graphic. Adria digitized it and incorporated it into the rest of the look and feel. The cake was created by Michelle of Cakewalk Baking. She did an amazing job. We had popcorn, film reel and star cookies that were baked up by Allyson Jane Cookies. We purchased a 1968 vintage film reel off craigs list. That was a great find. We found the popcorn buckets and french fry containers (that we used for some of the concession stand goodies) from Cost Plus. We went to our favorite paper store, The Paper Source for the envelopes and stickers for the invitations. The red fabric for the concession stand back drop was from Joann’s.”
