Popcorn Birthday

This past weekend we had our kiddos bday. They are turning 3 and 5. With a combined bday it can be a little tricky to come up with a theme, but two years now I have managed. LAst year was cowboy/cowgirl and it worked quite nicely with the toy story obsession that was currently in the house. here was the invite

(did I mention I love photo shop!)

and this year since we now love all Disney movies the theme was movies and popcorn. I bought all kinds of movie decorations like cars banners, ratatouille chef hats, etc. But the main focus was popcorn. here are some pics from the weekend.
this was the main popcorn station where everyone came to fill up on the flavor of their choice. we had butter, nacho cheddar and kettle corn 

I followed this wonder idea and made my version of these popcorn cupcakes.

These is the cakes. I made a 9X13 frosted it, put those fancy smancy stripes and letters and topped it with the yellow M&m's

This was fun.. the pinata... we made it and covered with stripe paper and yellow crumpled crepe paper. thanks to the awesome nephews who were willing to get glue -yy  with me :)

And to the best hubby who plays along with all my silly ideas. (and yes that is all french bread he is holding) we are italian, "its what we do"
