My twins didn’t get to have a party this year due to quarantine so we celebrated later in the summer with a backyard movie night. It was a great way to see a few friends with minimal contact. I set up this fun concessions table with portioned snacks for everyone.
This art cart made a fun drink station for the boys. I added a printable sign and water bottle labels to fit the theme.
We served cupcakes, licorice, popcorn, and of course candy! All the classic movie treats. Each boy came up one at a time to grab their goodies. Even though we were celebrating late we added a fun movie inspired Happy Birthday printable banner to the table.
You can find these great popcorn containers on AMAZON HERE (AD) as well. Perfect to use for any movie night at home and they are reusable.
Printable movie cupcake toppers featured film rolls, tickets, popcorn and more. Perfect for a movie night even without a birthday party.
We were lucky enough to borrow this awesome popcorn machine from my parents. Every movie theater needs the smell of freshly popped popcorn.
I created this smaller table to hold carriers for each guest. They were able to carry home any leftovers in their personalized box. I love the banner with oversized cut outs of the movie images.
Both birthday boys had a centerpiece featuring his name on a star.
Each guest received a carrier to hold all of their treats. They were able to hold 2 beverages, popcorn, and several boxes of candy. This helped them keep their items from being mixed up and much less contact. You can find them HERE ON AMAZON (AD).
This was such a fun summer party set up! We were lucky to have a warm evening to enjoy our movie.
I have been loving these large printable signs as backdrops for my parties. They are a great way to incorporate your theme and they are so easy to use. I get mine printed at a local print shop then mount it on poster board or a large canvas that I use over and over for parties using command strips. Just set it on the table and you have instant decor.
Even without a birthday this is such a fun summer activity. Just skip the birthday banner and create one using the editable files saying Movie Night or any other custom text. Why not set up a family movie night in the backyard? Make it extra special with my printable package! Perfect for an end of summer bash! Find the printables HERE!
I also have a POPCORN party package available in my store for a slightly different look.
Hope you are enjoying the rest of your summer and creating special moments with those around you.

The sweet little baby this shower was thrown for turned 1 this summer and I thought it was the perfect time to share. Her mama LOVES Elvis my friend and I knew we had to incorporate this into our party without being too cheesy. This was a first girl after 2 boys so we also wanted a soft feminine party. After many brainstorming sessions we decided on Shake, Rattle & Roll. This combo of classic baby images and fun Elvis wording created a fun whimsical baby shower theme.
We used a bottle (Shake), Rattle, and Stroller (Roll) as our images with soft baby pink and mint green accents. I punched my printable Shake Rattle & Roll cupcake toppers out with a scalloped punch for an extra girly touch.
All of the food was Elvis inspired. We used elements from his favorite foods to create out menu. Peanut butter banana bars, coconut macaroons (he loved coconut cake), and lemon meringue parfaits.
We hosted the shower at the bride to be’s church rec room. It was a large space with not great lighting. We made it cozier by using round tables just in one half of the room for guests all focused towards the main table and mom to be’s chair. Each table had either a centerpiece circle in a scalloped pot or diaper cake, mini tissue poms, plus a frame with Elvis lyrics, place settings with a favor, game card, and drink jar.
Cupcake toppers were used on the drink jars as a cute little tag.
We used pink Hershey’s kisses in clear bags tied with a printable favor tag for a sweet treat for each guests to take home.
My friend made these gorgeous diaper cakes for the tables. They were topped with printable centerpiece circles and pink curly ribbons. We wrapped the layers with pink and mint fabric and layers of ribbons. I love how they turned out! Such a pretty decoration and gift for the mom to be.
The last Elvis touch were these adorable blue suede shoes my friend found as a gift for the mama. Such a sweet and special baby shower celebrating baby Presley! Yes you read that right. Baby girl was named Presley after Elvis himself. So fun!

This adorable boy elephant baby shower was thrown for a friend. She loved the Carter’s navy and light blue elephant clothing line that was out at the time. I used that as inspiration for this set. Our mutual friend Danielle hosted this party and went with carnival inspired food and of course peanuts. It was so much fun.
This adorable wreath made from diapers is paired with our printable elephant welcome sign to greet guests. It would be so cute on a nursery door for the mommy to be.
Just as the guests entered there was a table with a Guess How Many Peanuts game and cards for writing blessings to the baby. I love the use of tissue poms on the vases to look like flowers. Such a great pop of color.
Here is a closer look at the game. The food tent cards were repurposed as entry cards. Guests wrote their name and guess on them.
This sweet elephant pennant banner was a fun addition to the doorway into the party.
There was so much yummy food at this party. For the carnival food theme there were lots of foods on sticks.
Take a look at that cute elephant tissue pom. Isn’t he adorable. Here is a closer look at some of the yummy food for the Elephant Baby Shower. Blue chocolate chip cookies. ham and cheese pinwheels, berry sweet rolls, homemade potato chips in fun carnival striped bags.
Mini elephant ears, corn dogs, anti pasta on a stick, and veggie sticks. There were also fruit skewers. Delicious!
I love the look of napkin wraps at a party. It is such an easy thing to do and has such a big impact. These cute mommy and baby elephants look adorable wrapped around the silverware.
Throughout the party there were several elephant centerpiece sets. I love the use of peanuts in the jars throughout.
Here is another fun centerpiece and banner display. I love the use of the onesie in it. Such a clever idea. This banner is made from the centerpiece circles. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the elephant printable baby shower decorations.
Even the party game prizes were dressed up to match the theme. A plain white bag with a centerpiece circle tie it all together.
Tissue poms can add so much color throughout a party. Don’t be afraid to go crazy. Multiple sizes, colors, flat or hanging.
These origami elephants will be such a cute mobile for the baby’s nursery. You can see behind them is a clothes pin line filled with the Carter’s elephant clothing line. It doubles as decor and a gift for mom.
As the guests left there was a peanut bar. Fill a bag with your favorites for an easy baby shower favor.
These cute mini canning jars made the perfect container topped with a printable favor tag for pastel m&ms. Another sweet baby shower favor for guests to pick up as they left.
I also have a matching Bingo Card perfect for a Baby Shower Game.
This set is also available in pinks and gray for a Girl Baby Shower.

Summer is coming to an end but I am enjoying it through this party just a little bit longer. Camping is one of our favorite summer activities. What is more perfect than a Camping Birthday Party! Turn your backyard into your own campground and add our printable decorations for a fun theme. If you live in places where summer weather lasts into the September and October there is still time to host your own camping party.
I love this cute camping themed party table complete with picnic basket, our printable camping party centerpiece and happy birthday banner in the background. This creative mom utilized our printable camping party cupcake toppers and party circles in lots of places throughout the party.
I am always looking for creative ways to feed guests at my parties. Of course camping means roasting hotdogs over a fire.
Serve them up in a metal pie tin for easy clean up and a fun rustic look. Even party food can fit your theme.
Who says smores have to be plain? Create a gourmet smores station for your party guests. Who needs birthday cake?
I love how this customer went all out with the decor. Even the dolls got in on the camping party fun.
This cute camping favor station featured flashlights, a bear needing adopted, and trail mix. See the cute mini banner? That is made from our printable cupcake toppers. What a fun use for them.
Having an activity to keep the kids busy is a must for any party. These girls enjoyed a scavenger hunt around their campground. What a perfect party game alternative.
An outdoor movie is the perfect end to a camping slumber party.
Treat your guests with a yummy yogurt parfait bar for a quick post camping breakfast.
Camping cupcake toppers in cute mini cinnamon rolls.
Check out our full printable camping birthday party decoration package. A boy version is coming soon!
