The Goonies Backyard Movie Night

Hey You Guuuuyyyyssss!! 
It's time for The Goonies!  Tonight, our families and friends joined us for our very first backyard movie night!  And it was a HUGE success!
These signs led visitors from our street all the way to our backyard.
Once in the backyard, they found this yummy display of food and treats!  The sail was later used as our movie screen!

  (left) ice cream scoop sugar cookies, "copper bones" sugar cookies, skull cake pops, Baby Ruth bars
 Goonies parties seem to be in short supply, but I did find one in particular that gave me SO MUCH inspiration!  Audrey's party over at Sweet Cheeks Tasty Treats had some amazing ideas.  She was even kind enough to give me some tips on making the Sloth cake pops.  Thanks again Audrey!! 
Like the signage? You can buy some right here on esty, from seller Squared Party Printables.
 I found these great DYNAMITE candles at Party Swizzle.  A perfect addition!
 In a family where the kids nearly outnumber the adults, I had to be sure there was plenty for them to do!  And there was!  A plank hovering over a pool, buried treasure, inflatable swords and water-gun pistols.  And of course, Sloth's favorite, jump rope!
Movie snacks were rolled around to guests in a wagon!  Got this great idea from Celebrations at Home.
 Enjoy the show!


Got a couple extra minutes?  I'd love for you to be one of my "100 people surveyed"!
