outdoor movie party!

Last month, I helped throw a fabulous birthday party for my sassy friend, Cristina. While my friends Colleen and Cassandra mulled birthday party ideas around in our heads- we finally decided on an outdoor movie bash. Then, we went to work-- and crossed our fingers that it wouldn't rain!

I was in charge of the cake! (my favorite part of any party!)

This was no ordinary cake!

This cake was studded with Cornfetti popcorn brought lovingly home from the Mom and Popcorn Company in Texas! This cake had a suprise inside.

Colleen, Cassandra and I all pulled together to transform a backyard into a perfect movie paradise-- popcorn of all flavors, candies, and soda by the bottle.

We piled the quilts and blankets up high in the middle of the yard, and got the movie started!

It was a bit magical if I do say so myself, and the weather was perfect. Not a drop of rain that night!

Happy Birthday Cristina! (Even though you are only 28 and make me feel like an old lady!)

Hehe, the cake looks very playful! It's very colorful! LOL! The best parties can come with the simplest of presentations when you're with people whom you really love. The effort put into preparing for this shows that she is special to you.
