Outdoor Movie Birthday Party Ideas


I recently hosted an outdoor movie party for my son’s 12th birthday. I knew that I wanted to create a movie theater vibe and Shindigz had so many great props to choose from. Below you can see the big cardboard ticket cutouts that we put at the entrance and again at the condiment table. These come in a set of 6 and are super strong and sturdy. They are a great product for the price. I can tell I will be able to use them for years to come! Also at the condiment table is a 6’ cardboard popcorn standee that we decided to hang above the table. This too was very good quality!

These photos of the entrance show a couple more of the cardboard ticket cutouts as well as a personalized banner with my son’s name on it. Shindigz will put these on sale from time to time and I always take advantage when that happens! I put some string lights around the poster board frame to make it resemble a movie marquee.

These cute little movie night cutouts from Shindigz were my inspiration for this entire party! They have a retro feel to them and are so cute and I knew they would be perfect for the concession stand. I added retro sodas to give it something extra. The water bottles looked extra special with the Now Showing personalized drink labels I got from Shindigz. I don’t think any drinks were left over! Thank goodness my good friend who volunteered to be the "concession guy". The soda jerk hats from Shindigz made him look official.

I used plastic burgundy tablecovers as curtains for the front of the concession stand and for the tables I used polyester tablecovers in burgundy, black and bermuda blue. The polyester tablecovers are so durable and they really step up the decor a notch! I have these in several colors and prefer them over the plastic ones.

The blue, red and black striped paper straws added to the retro feel I was looking for.

It looks like they are enjoying everything! Thank you so much Shindigz for offering such great products that help us celebrate those special moments in our lives!
