teen girl's movie birthday party

Lights, camera.. ACTION! Adria Ruff of party powerhouse Anders Ruff styled this delightfully spunky Outdoor Movie Night Birthday Party for her 13 year-old daughter, Brynne. What more could a girl want than an evening filled with yummy snacks, a movie under the stars, and her closest friends, right? (The adorable DIY fabric-embellished flip-flops are a nice added bonus though!) I think even the critics would agree that these girls look like they had SUCH a blast – I’d say that’s mission accomplished, Mom. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Colorful tea light lanterns & comfy lounge chairs, & clever DIY palette coffee table
– Jelly Belly concession stand, guessing game, and “taste test” activity
– Mini soda pop bottles in a vintage soda crate + flavored popcorn buffet
– DIY fabric embellished flip-flops for each guest + matching fabric fringe garlands
– Coordinating monogrammed shirts, pillows & totebags from Great Stitch
– Cupcake decorating contest + an awesome outdoor projector to watch the movie

Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about the hot new trend — Video Game Truck Parties! Kids have been asking for video game parties for quite some time now but NOW the new trend is having these Video Game Trucks come to your party where you and your guests can play video games together inside the truck with laser light shows and stereo sound creating the ultimate video game party experience.

At the forefront of this trend is Games 2 U who specialize in bringing the mobile entertainment to your party. They make it super easy to host the ultimate video game party experience as they have outdoor activities that can complement your favorite video game theme. Check out how I used this trend to create the ultimate Army video game themed party experience.
