Diary of a Wimpy Kid Party...Revealed

Thomas' Diary of a Wimpy Kid party was a huge success for all those attended! I am obsessed with using a book/movie as the theme! Here are a few quotes from some attendees:

"I want a Diary of a Wimpy Kid Party when I am 8" Brian, Age 7

"How come I have never had a candy table at one of my parties, mom? I want a candy table at all my upcoming parties!" Ben Age 6

We easily incorporated one of the lines from the movie into the theme and backdrop for the candy table. Zoo Wee Mama made from white wood letters surrounded the framed print with Thomas' name.

Yep - I sorted these skittles by hand so we only had the colors that went with the theme.

Same with the Starbursts...

and the M&Ms. It took FOREVER but it was worth it as it looked perfect on the table! Candy and jars are from Target. Jars were a great deal (about $5.99) and can be used for our next party (Back to School is what is on the books for Sept)

All kids seem to love Smarties

We put our new HPD Kiss stickers on the bottom of the kisses. It was a fun for adults and kids too.

We couldnt show a move without popcorn. How great are these boxes? We purchased them from Michaels and added the HPD sticker.

These HPD cookies are so delicious! I had to grab one right away before they were all gone.

Hammond's homemade lollipops. Aren't they great with the stickers? I found a little stand for them at Michael's in the same section I purchased the white letters above.

The photographer didnt even have a chance to snap the photo of the Hershey bars before Jackson made his move. If you order these, get one for every child to avoid a meltdown! Trust me, they all want one!

This is priceless. Thomas hung this on the front door. It says "Come On In! The Cheese will lead you to the basement" "Greg Heffley - Zoo Wee Mama!"

Cheese Touch walkway - from the moment the kids came in the house, they knew there were in for a good time!

The Do It Yourself Diary of a Wimpy Kids books were the party favors and the kids loved, loved, loved them! My neighbor carried his ALL weekend and to the bus stop on Monday. Yep, same adorable child who wore the diary shirt at the party, to sleep in and the next day too. Remember those days? It made my weekend to know he loved everything so much!

Gift and Cake Table

You cant have a party without cupcakes!

My favorite part of the party and favorite picture. I hope Thomas wish comes true!

Cake by Aunt Barbara. I loved the "tape" around the edge of the note.

Loved these invites. We wrote: The Popcorn is hot, so don't be late, Roderick may rule but Thomas is still turning 8!"

Handing out T-Shirts to the kids to put on when they arrived was a huge hit! I purchased these for $7.99 at Target.



Putting this party together was actually quite easy! We did all the prep work for the candy table during the week and ordered pizza the night of the event. Kids had pizza when they arrived around 5 and then got candy and popcorn for the movie around 5:30. We did a big showing of the movie at 5:30 and then cake around 6:45. The kids really watched the movie (we were very surprised!) and had such a great time.
