A Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Party.

Rudolph Party

Our first Christmas movie night party of the month was the Charlie Brown Christmas Party which was awesome, under $10, and we all loved it!

Our latest movie night party was Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!  And this time we added one more guest – bringing our total to 6 – and spent less money!

I definitely did less for this party, but it was still completely fun and everyone had a great time!  We made a craft, ate some cake, and watched the movie.

PARTY DETAILS

The main centerpiece of this party was the cake.  Totally got the idea off Pinterest, and I loved how it turned out!  I hoped I had some glittered scrapbook paper in my stash, but I didn’t. So, I made the antlers using stuff I did have — cardstock, gold paint, glitter, and glue.  (Once everything dried, I used Mod Podge over the top of it to seal the glitter on there, since I didn’t want everyone eating glitter. Ha!)  Once I was done making them, I just hot glued some skewers onto the back to stick in the cake.  I did already have the black gel icing that I used for the eyes. And the nose was a jawbreaker I got out of the kids’ Halloween candy.  Also, the box cake mix and icing were on sale when I bought them, bringing the grand total for this cake to…$1.50.

The reindeer head place settings I loved!  It was so easy!  And *gasp* I think I came up with it all on my own, but it’s entirely possible I saw it on Pinterest and just forgot.  Ha! Anyway, I had these plates from Dollar Tree, and I just cut out the heads from construction paper I had, and drew on them with Sharpie.  Then I drew their antlers on the Dollar Tree tablecloth.  It turned out to cute!  Total for this table setting: $2. (Plates, tablecloth.)

I set up a photo booth just for kicks at the last minute.  The props I already had — and this is the 3rd year we’ve used them!  And they’re from the Dollar Tree originally.  #win  And the red backdrop is just red wrapping paper I had taped to the wall. Total cost for me: $0

It was a simple, fun movie night for me and the kids!  And the grand total was $3.50 for me.  Woo!  I even had a little reindeer antler craft that was left over from Alice’s class party last year.  (I’m a party supply hoarder, clearly.)  Only the girls were interested in making them, but they were there!
