As my daughters get older, it gets harder and harder to come up with fun birthday party ideas. They are both at those in-between ages where they still want to have a small party with their friends but don’t want to play any “little kid” games. As you know from Wednesday’s post, my oldest daughter decided on a movie themed birthday party and it turned out to be a great choice!
Since it took her forever to decide what she wanted to do for her party, the party planning was all very last minute. Thank goodness for printable invitations from Etsy! Perfect for us procrastinators! I ordered these super cute printable invitations from Luv Bug Design and within 24 hours of placing my order, I had received an email with my personalized invitations attached that I was able to immediately print out and send! The wording and font on the invitations is completely customizable
and you can change the background and font colors or even add a picture.
That was my only Etsy purchase for the party but there is a huge selection of movie themed printables on Etsy that you may want to check out – some of my other favorites were these printable water bottle wrappers from DeLamour
For a party activity, we created a homemade version of a photo booth. I picked up a lightweight laser cut frame at Michael’s (less than $5 with a 40% off coupon),
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for party favors but between Party City, Target, and Michael’s, I found plenty of cute, inexpensive favors:
So I’ve got one party down and one to go – my daughters’ birthdays are three weeks apart so as soon as I’ve gotten one done, it’s time to start thinking about the next one. My youngest daughter would like her party to have a circus theme so I’ll have to see what I can come up with for that (any ideas??)! Have a great weekend everyone!
