Movie Night: Freebirds

Movie Night, ThanksgivingAmy WileyComment

Today for movie night I’m sharing this favorite from last year…

IMG_0149.JPG

I feel like my finger is hovering on the trigger of a cannon of all things Christmas.  I'm almost ready to unleash the most wonderful time of the year at my house, but first a little Thanksgiving fun!

Freebirds is a really cute little movie that's perfect for November.  It offers plenty of laughs for both kids and adults.  Read about its content here.

I was tickled to spot these turkeys and they inspired my whole look for the table.  I LOVE the touches of pink!  I look forward to putting them out year after year.

Also, let's talk about how much mileage I'm getting out of the gingham pumpkins.  They work September through November!

The place cards are just the cutest.

For dinner, we are having enchiladas.  Because we just are.  If you wanted to play off the theme, you could do a toned-down thanksgiving-type meal or turkey/cranberry/dressing/cream cheese sandwiches.  The main character in this movie, Reggie, is a turkey who learns how to order pizza so you could do that too!

If you go the pizza route, you might as well make your life as easy as possible and use all paper products:

If you haven't already, give this silly little movie a try!

 

Unicorn Birthday Party!

Hosting, BirthdayAmy WileyComment

Eight is a magical age, deserving of a magical party.  My daughter picked unicorns for her birthday theme this year and it was too fun!

We had no shortage of sparkles, darling friends, and enchantment.  I LOVE planning birthday celebrations for my children.

Today I'm sharing the details of this sweet party, broken down by category.

Decor

It was all kinds of pink, purple and sparkly for this party... too fun!  I found the little signs at Zulily and Prep Obsessed.

I picked up the little unicorn cake plates at Walmart.

I adore these floral arrangments from Costco.  For $19.99, they are beautiful and easy!

I always do custom napkins for my kids' birthday parties.

Food and Drink

The party took place after lunch time, so we just did some simple snacks, lemonade, and of course birthday cake.

I found the napkins at Homegoods and the plates at Target.

The cake is from Sugar Bakeshop in Denver and was absolutely gorgeous.  It was vanilla with caramel filling and so delicious!

Activities

We had about two dozen kids for this party so I had several activities to keep them entertained.  Of course we HAD to have a unicorn bounce house!

These little unicorn wand kits are from Oriental Trading and proved to be an enjoyable craft.

Second grade girls LOVE to color, so I found this free image on Pinterest and we printed them on cardstock.

Favors

I've learned to keep party favors simple because no one likes their kid coming home with a bag full of tons of tiny junk.  Am I right?!?

When the guests walked in they could choose a unicorn horn.

Each child left with a favor bag holding a little plush unicorn and either a pen or necklace.

I found the custom labels here.

It's always a joy to choose and birthday theme with my children and plan their parties.  When else in life can you wear a unicorn headband and eat cake?

I hope you have a magical day!
