I made the invitation in Pic Monkey and printed it on kraft cardstock.

In addition to the chalkboard art and clipboard photo of the birthday girl, I made a movie banner with some of her favorite movies.  I printed movie posters onto cardstock and clipped them to twine with mini paper clips.

3.  Have PLENTY of food

We served pizza and apple slices.  We also had a treat bar (using small kraft sacks) with popcorn (paper popcorn bags) and bottled water.


4.  Decide where you'll show the movie

We wanted to show our movie outside so we used a white sheet hung on our fence. You could also get a movie screen here.  We borrowed a projector, similar to this one.


5.  Have plenty of comfortable seating options 


outdoor lights, globe lightds

We blew up air mattresses and had plenty of blankets and camp chairs to sit on.  We created a lounge on our deck with  globe lights as a place for guests to eat.


Showing an movie outdoors at our house was a really fun birthday party for our teen girl and all of her guests!
