We are enjoying our Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan.  The Samsung Galaxy On5 has a great camera and a large screen.  I am still shocked with the pricing.  It is regularly $119.00, but I got it on Rollback for $69.00.  And the SIM kit for $19.88.   With unlimited* Talk, Text, & Data which *includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE then 2G I no long have to always be searching for wifi to make sure I am not using all my data.  Since Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 when you sign up.

I think my favorite part of the phone service is the free VUDU movie credit every month ($7 value) for $49.88 per month, per line means more family movie nights! We streamed the video to our big screen and snuggled up on the couch. This perk makes entertainment super easy and inspired me to create and share this Popcorn and Candy Bar for Family Date Night!

Décor for Family Movie Night 

With our tax refund and the saving compared to our old phone plan we have extra budget to make ordinary events a party.  When I start planning a party I like to start with a color scheme and theme.  I love black, white and gold and thought it was the perfect color scheme for our Family Movie Night party.  Since it was a movie night I focused on a Director Sign, stars and pops of gold.  I transformed our bar cart into a family movie night party cart.

Director Sign is one of my favorite elements from the party.  I personalized it to fit our family movie night.  Our daughter loves to know the plans so I included even what time we were going to start the movie night.

Food and Drinks for Family Movie Night 

No movie is complete without popcorn and candy.  I let our daughter pick out her favorites which included a mix of sour and sweet candy and two types of popcorn.

The popcorn options included movie theater style butter popcorn and a cinnamon popcorn.

I filled these black and white stripped treat containers with the candy B had picked out so we could all pick them together in our treat bags.

How cute are these black and gold treat bags?  They added just the right touch of sparkle and were fun to fill and bring to the couch.

While I love a fountain drink for a movie since B is not old enough for soda we served ice cold milk.  Have you had milk out of a glass bottle?  It tastes even better because it gets ice cold.

For our drinks and the popcorn scoops I wanted to take my plain plastic and make it more glamorous to stay with our theme.  I love washi tape especially for transformations like this.  Simply determine where you want the accent to be and apply the tape.  Cut the end and you are done.

Dessert for Family Movie Night

A party without a cake is simply a meeting, right?  I love to bake, but sometimes it is even more fun to transform store bought items into your theme.  I wanted to create cupcakes that looked like mini containers of popcorn.  First I placed the cupcakes into the black and white treat cups I used for our candy bar.

Then I took marshmallows and cut them up into small pieces because we bought the extra large ones.  If would recommend buying the mini ones.  Cutting the large marshmallows into smaller pieces was a sticky project.

Then we used scissors and cut l and x into the marshmallows to make them look like pieces of popcorn.  B loved the idea of cutting them with scissors.  It was a fun project for the two of us to do together.
