This is what Katie said about planning the party- “A movie party theme was inspired out of necessity! We have a large group of friends and family and I had to come up with a theme that would entertain and accommodate a February indoor party for 50 guests, 25 of them children between the ages of 4-6. With a goal to wow my guests (b/c I do style parties for a living), make it fun for both big and little guests, and keep it fuss-free, I split our party onto two levels to keep the crowd flowing.
I found traditional red, white, and black movie party printables on Etsy, but since this party was for a girl, I wanted to add in a tad bit of girly and decided to throw in pops of yellow. And, as a party stylist with a room full of props, I incorporated many of the party décor pieces I already had on hand, which turned this theme into a Vintage Movie Party.

Now, who doesn’t love movie snacks? This was such a hit for the birthday girl and all her friends. I created a movie concession stand stocked with fresh popped popcorn, jumbo salted pretzels, a selection of candy (mini sized of course), popcorn pops, cupcakes, and beverages. Just like the movies, our little guests got in line and each received a snack caddy, which they then filled with whatever movie treats they wanted. On the way down to the “movie theatre”, each guest grabbed a sheet and took a seat in front of the big screen. While the children were entertained downstairs, our adult guests were able to relax, mingle and enjoy the bar and restocked concession stand upstairs.”

    Hey! What a great job on the movie night party. I was wondering if you can tell me where to get the snack caddy. It would be wonderful for my daughters party as they need to go down the stairs to watch a movie!

    Thanks in advance for you help :)
