I can’t believe this handsome boy is 7 years old!!! He had a blast at his first movie theater party! I remember taking my friends to the movies when I was a kid – it’s so much fun and you feel so grown up! I could tell he felt the same way this year! He originally wanted a Star Wars party but when he found out the Secret Life of Pets movie would be out in time for his birthday, he quickly changed his mind and asked for a pet theme birthday party!
The party was pretty simple this year! We had an hour in the party room before the movie but I still had some fun crafting for all the little party favors! And his shirt was really fun to make! I started with the Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop Grand Slam (it’s my favorite raglan pattern!) And then I designed the Max and Duke file to make it easy for vinyl layering! If you’d like the file for free click here! You can modify it as you need for your child’s shirt! The file is a .studio file so you’ll need the Silhouette software to open. I LOVE my Cameo and will probably always stay a loyal Silhouette customer! My machine is almost 3 years old now and is still amazing!
Woo hoo! It’s party time!
I loved the pet adoption idea on Pinterest so I filled a box with Beanie Babies and designed a cute little sign that I also used to make the adoption certificates!
The kids came into the party and picked their pet first – the certificate has a place for their name and their pet’s name! Click here to download a printable file to use for your party!
My mom made this adorable owl veggie tray!
And Christian had to add his Max pencil eraser to the cake! LOL!
Having the party room at the theater was great!
The banner I made with my Silhouette turned out so cute for pictures!
For the party games, we did a “Hot Potato” type game where we passed around the plush Snowball character from the movie. He is a rabbit so we called the game “Hop Potato” and if you were caught holding Snowball when the music stopped, you had to eat the rabbit poop (chocolate covered raisins! The boys thought it was hilarious!)
We also did a musical chairs with our adopted pets and paw prints on the floor! The room wasn’t really that big but it was still fun to play some games! Here’s a video of the game!
And my sweet boy blowing out his 7 candle!
He had a blast opening his presents……
And after the party, we went into the theater for the movie! I think the adults had more fun watching the reactions of the kids during the movie than watching the actual film! In the party favor box I wrapped up some brown paper lunch sacks with twine and a popcorn cut out (my first time doing print and cut on the Cameo!) Here’s the file if you would like to make some for a party!
Thanks for checking our party out! Happy birthday to my very special buddy! I love you Christian!
