In case you haven’t heard already, one of the best movies of the year came out on Tuesday, Guardians of the Galaxy. We didn’t get to see it in theaters, but heard so many good things about it. We just couldn’t wait till it came out on DVD. The DVD features: Exclusive Character O-sleeve and exclusive music zinepack and a 64 page magazine with cast and crew interviews, exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and trivia PLUS a custom “cassette” laptop decal. I went early Tuesday morning to snag our copy. I decided to celebrate the release with a family movie night, on a school night! Dustyn was ecstatic to be able to stay up a little late on a school night.


We had pizza, candy, chips and the best of all… cupcakes!


I decided to have some fun with these and picked up all of the little Guardians of the Galaxy figures. I baked cupcakes, topped them with purple icing, and sprinkles. Then just topped each cupcake with a figure.


The boys enjoyed playing with the figures after eating their cupcakes. If your child wants a Guardians of the Galaxy birthday party these would be perfect. Then each child could take home their own figure at the end of the party.


Getting ready to watch the movie! We had so much fun, Dustyn asked if we could do that every night.


The next day I decided to make this baby Groot. I just took some brown packing paper I had laying around and twisted it up. Then took little strips of brown packing paper for his arms. Next, I twisted up green packing paper and wrapped around the main body and arms. Glued these in place. Then just trimmed the top of his head and his arms. Finally I drew his eyes and a little smiley face. Seriously so easy and the cutest. Dustyn loves him and now has him sitting on his dresser in his room. Groot was hands down our favorite character in Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Wow, we just sat down and watched the movie! What an awesome fun idea to turn movie night into an event! I want to come watch movies at your house!!

    You know I really liked that movie except for all the swearing. For something that seemed geared to kids it had more swearing in it than a lot of the other Marvel movies.

    But your party looks awesome and I’m sure your boys are going to have some great memories of it!

    Groot was also my favorite character in Guardians of the Galaxy. Before watching the movie, I didn’t expect it to be that good. But it turned out to be awesome.

    What a fun theme! I can’t wait for my kids to be old enough to have themed movie nights. I still haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy but sounds like it should be on my list. Who knew Bradley Cooper was in it?! I think that might be a little bit of extra incentive on my part.. 😉
