We made out a guest list, then sent out our invitations:
When the party guests arrived, we got things shaking by playing a few party games. Once the kids worked up an appetite, it was time for a little pizza!
Then it was time to settle in with a movie. We were sent a Soul Surfer DVD to help entertain the guests. My girls saw this movie when it was in the theater and just loved it. They were really excited to be able to sit at home and watch it with their family and friends. If you haven't seen it yet, I would highly recommend getting a copy to watch soon. It is such an inspiring and uplifting story, and it's one the whole family can enjoy together.
The Sony Pictures, family-friendly film, Soul Surfer SOUL SURFER is the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. The film features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid. In the wake of this life-changing event that took her arm and nearly her life, Bethany’s feisty determination and steadfast beliefs spur her toward an adventurous comeback that gives her the grit to turn her loss into a gift for others. Starring Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid, AnnaSophia Robb, Lorraine Nicholson and Carrie Underwood.
Of course, one can't watch a movie without snacks! We tore open the bags of Werther's Original Caramel Popcorn, passed out the bowls, and since we love add ins with our popcorn, let the guests chose from a little mini buffet what they would like to add to theirs.
Werther's Original Caramel Popcorn was the hit of the party! If you are a fan of the candy, just imagine popcorn smothered in the sweet, creamy flavor Werther's is famous for. The popcorn is so delicious, it's almost sinful! Surprisingly, we still had a few bags left over at the end of the party, and I wanted to cry as a few guests helped themselves to walking out with some of the unopened bags, even though I gave them all money saving coupons to buy their own.
We also shared some recipe cards so they could whip up their own sweet popcorn concoctions at home.
We are definitely going to keep this popcorn on hand for each party we host from now on since it was such a hit!
Werther's Original Caramel Popcorn can be purchased at most major retailers.
