We made up some Hollywood looking invites:
No famous guest can arrive without walking the red carpet:
I kind of kept with a movie theme, even though it was an invite for all sorts of "celebrity" people. We decorated the buffet in a theater type style, complete with candy, soda cups and goodie bags.
I am going to correct myself. It is not cool to have a "goodie bag" when you are a teenager. Calling it a "Swag Bag" worked though. Then I had the problem of figuring out what to put in a swag bag that would work for both boys and girls. I had the bright idea to pass out "Bling" to the guests. Since this was no P. Diddy party, I was working on a Mahoney budget, we settled for candy bling.
|Ring Pops, Candy Necklace and Bracelets worked well for swag bag fillers.|
I found these tumblers at the $1 store. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out vinyl stars with each guest's name in the center. Another cheap party favor that the kids loved!
After playing party games, we finished with cupcakes. Mariah decided to pass on a birthday cake this year, and instead the kids had fun decorating their own cupcakes.
Overall, I think the party was a huge hit!
Have you thrown or gone to any themed parties this year?
