low key pizza and movie party

Well, time to write about another party!  We just had one turn 8 years old at our house!  This year my daughter wanted to do a sleepover party, so with that decision, the deal was that she could only invite 3 kids over (plus her sisters for the movie part) and I wouldn’t be doing a super involved party this time.  But of course I just can’t help myself and did do a little something to make it cute!  🙂

We had pizza and cake, then the girls watched “The Tooth Fairy” and before the movie, they got to pick a mini pillow pet (to keep as the party favor), a boxed candy, and fill their cup with an assortment of popcorn choices.  It was cute and I think the girls enjoyed themselves. 
The “sleep”over was a bit harder… there is always the one girl that wants to sleep, the one that wants to bother/bug and the ones that just want to chat and giggle… can be a hard combo sometimes.  It may be a few years before we do more than 1 friend again!

Anyway, let’s get to the fun part… Here are some pictures from the party:

Got the cute unicorn party supplies from birthdayexpress
Extra large mylar
For the individual popcorn cups: I printed the names on white cardstock and stapled them on the backside to form a cylinder, cut a circle for the bottom about a half inch larger diameter than the cylinder, then pushed and bent it up into the bottom and stapled it around the base. 

For the larger popcorn bowls, I have a set of green mixing bowls that are different sizes and all fit into each other.  I thought, what if I just make “covers” for them and set the bowl inside.  So, I measured each bowl from table to just under the rim and the diameter, printed the striped design and label I made on the computer (had to glue a few sheets together to make the diameter large enough), and just set the bowl into them (unlike the individual cups, there is no paper bottom, they just go around the bowl).  I loved how it turned out and will definitely use that idea for future parties!
cupcakes from whole foods and we just added some sprinkles
Mini pillow pets as party favors (only worked because we had a small enough party for it to be do-able)
We happened to have a stuffed unicorn which came in handy for the centerpiece
