A DIY DRESS-UP PARTY - {the food}


We had lots of fun yesterday at Frog's Dress-Up Party.
I thought I'd share this one by breaking it up into a few posts along with some Iinks if you are interested in having your own dress-up or movie/theatre party. The whole thing was very inexpensive and lots of fun. This post is all about the food.

With lots of dress-ups hanging everywhere it looked like a dressing room backstage at the theatre, so the food was along that theme also.


You can buy some of these gorgeous vintage popcorn bags here.

The glitter star wands were made using this shortbread recipe, some bamboo skewers, cachous, edible glitter and creative children.


You can find out how to make these fun popcorn cupcakes here.


For these perfectly themed movie party printables
(water bottles and much more) head over here.


A cheat's cake using one Barbie, a 4 litre bucket of icecream, some maltesers and some sparkling, glittery fabric and ribbon. Served with mini icecream cones. The icecream cake meant I did not make choc-tops which would have been perfect Aussie movie/theatre food!

Take home malteser bags.
This idea and other great movie party ideas (along with free printables) here.
Jaffas would have been perfect here also.

Star sandwiches and star cheeses.

Stay tuned for some very funny dress-up photos of the stars of the show,
adults and children alike...

Fantastic party Emma! Love it how everything comes together. Did you have icecream under the fabric of the skirt though, or did you leave it in the tub? Love the popcorn cupcakes especially!
