Earlier this week we shared with you some of the decor inspiration from the movie themed graduation party we threw to celebrate my son’s graduation from high school. Today we’d like to share with you some of the sweeter details of our celebration. As soon as we decided on a movie theme we knew we had to have a concession stand!
A movie concession stand wouldn’t be complete with out boxed candy. I purchased my candy at our local Dollar Tree store and simply laid it out on a tray. The candy was a big hit with my son’s friends!
Of course we had to have popcorn! We rented a large popcorn machine from a local rental company. The machine was not only fun, but really helped to add to the movie theater feel that we were going for.
The drink station included lemonade and fruit punch. The runner on the table is film strip inspired and is from The Oriental Trading Company. I found the larger clap board at our local Hobby Lobby store.
Instead of a large sheet cake, we decided to make a variety of cupcakes. The adorable cupcake toppers were designed by Denise!
My sister Marie, loves a good baking challenge. When I saw these popcorn inspired cupcakes by Duhlicious, I knew my sister would be up for the task! I ordered two of these movie projector inspired cupcake stands from The Oriental Trading Company knowing they would make the perfect display for my sister’s adorable cupcakes!
After the sunset, we turned on a few well placed marque inspired stars that I purchased at our local Target and it was time to show a movie!
The movie screen for our movie themed graduation party was simply a white bed sheet attached to my photo backdrop stand. My husband hooked a projector up to his laptop and it was showtime.
Next week, we’ll share with you the adorable movie themed invitations, thank you cards and cupcake toppers that Denise designed for our fun movie themed graduation party.
