Eli’s Movie Themed 11th Birthday Party // April 2013
I had such a fun time planning this co-ed movie themed party for Eli. From the movie poster invites to the red carpet entrance, I tried not to skip on any of the details. Eli wanted a party that would be fun for both boys and girls and kept everyone busy. We came up with Movie Theme! Who doesn’t like a good movie, popcorn, and snacks!?
For the main food Eli choose American Dream Pizza, a super yummy local pizza place. For snacks we served root beer, cookies, cupcakes, licorice, oreos, sour patch kids, and real movie theatre popcorn I got from the local cinema!
For the activity Eli and his friends split into 2 groups and filmed their own movies on iPads in iMovie. After filming and the editing was done, they then watched the movies each group had made and voted for best picture, actress, actor, director… and won Oscars (movie theatre candy wrapped in gold paper). This kept all the kids busy and was a unique activity that involved everyone.
This was a fun and memorable birthday party for Eli that his friends have continued to talk about! I hope I have the opportunity to plan Eli’s 12th!
