As all parents when it comes to planning a party, the thought usually puts us off from having/hosting an event.

Recently I planned / helped host a 16th Movie night themed party, it was so much fun.

We hired a movie screen and speakers (Teens choose the movies) which we set up with rugs, blankets, pillows and heaters on the night.

During the planning I decided there should be a food/lollie/drink stand just like the movies where the kids could pick and choose what they liked. We decided to have popcorn, different flavoured chips, little lollie bag, and a variety of chocolate bars, all of which was brought on sale the couple of weeks leading up to the party.

We couldn’t just have movie food, so we bulk ordered pizza for the 20 teens.

We also had a drink stand with different flavoured fizzy drinks and water.

The birthday girl requested something different as thank you gifts, she chose handmade biscuits decorated to her party theme, they looked and tasted amazing.

I also made the cake, I choose to do a Coles hack, and used 3 chocolate mud cakes and decorated them to look like a popcorn box.

Party’s don’t need to be stressful, they can be fun, with lots of planning ahead of time, everything came together easily.
