Outdoor Movie Birthday Party~Summer’s Sweet 17

Tags

I Love doing theme type parties~ I love vintage/retro  soda, candy, dish ware etc., so as I scanned Pinterest for ideas, as Summer’s 17th birthday approached, I fell in love with the outdoor movie themed party.  Summer was on board, which ment as long as she could invite all her friends and I didn’t over do it on the decorations, I had permission to let my creative juices flow.

Of course we had to have the soda pop bottles, I found this adorable retro cooler at World Market, striped straws & chalk boards were fun added touches.

I found vintage movie reels on Ebay and the fun red food baskets for the Hotdogs & Hamburgers on here I found old movie reals on Ebay.  I found the  plastic red food baskets for the Hotdogs & Hamburgers & the napkin dispenser here at http://www.retroplanet.com/

Started the Shakeology Diet this week, loving it!! One of my favorite recipes~

Shakeology Frappe~

Made with one scoop of Chocolate Shakeology, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 2 ounces of cold brew or chilled coffee(I used Roma/Pero), 1/8 tsp of caramel extract(didn’t have Caramel used vanilla), 1/2 cup water and 1 cup crushed ice topped off with some light whipped cream(used light cool whip).

Absolutely loved it, and this is coming from a McDonalds Frappe addict!!!
