Movie theme QC Mom Cherry Lopez (aka Errych) turned her house into a movie theater. Here's her story:
"We turned our own house into a movie theather covering the windows with black garbage bag . We had projector and played Toy Story 1. We had popcorns, sandwiches, etc. for the refreshments and after the movie they had spaghetti and chicken. After the movie we asked them for the moral of the story and gave out prizes to those who shared their insights. Most of our guest are chuch members and are from indigent families so we made sure that our giveaways will be very useful to them. Naging hit yung theme namin kasi hindi talaga sila nakakapanood ng movies sa big screen.
What I can suggest po for those who has extra to spend, you can have food carts "outside" the "movie theater". You can have starbucks, popcorn, cotton candy, burgers, etc. so before they watch they can get their food first. You can set up a tarp background as well for the moviegoers to have their pictures taken. and set up a red carpet para mukhang special screening yung effect. You can also have movie tickets as the invitation. and director's chair for the give aways. You can also indicate the viewing schedule on your invitation. It would be better also if you'll consider the age of those children who'll be attending when choosing for the movie to watch.
Newbie member Anne Zhandra Dy-Tan of Tacloban celebrated Zachary's birthday with an Airline theme.
"The preparation was easy for me since we have a carpenter, we let him made a booth that will symbolize as the departure area, immigration, customs and Economy de luxe (for the nannys). Also, we had a big airplane as backdrop at the stage area which will serve as a photo souvenirs for all children who wants to take pictures in the window side. Also I bought lots of balloons at Divisoria for decoration and gliders for centerpieces.
My invites were also an airline ticket named Zach Airways. Written there was the boarding time and place. And the name of passenger which is the person/s invited. And on the invite, I put there: wear ur best airline costume! "
