Last year, Sis and I prepared a Camping Party to welcome 2013. This is because many of our nieces and nephews stayed with us for a vacation and we thought it would be fun to welcome the upcoming year with a big party. This year, most of my relatives had plans of their own, so we decided to celebrate it with a more intimate party: a Movie Night- themed one.
New Year’s Eve Movie Night Food
We didn’t like really heavy meals for the New year so Sis and I prepared food that is usually eaten when watching a movie.
We had Chocolate Popcorn. It had to be in a popcorn box for us to feel like we were really going to watch a movie in the Cinema.
There are Corndogs, complete with mustard and tomato ketchup condiments.
Wondering what are those plastic soda bottles with misspelled names are? Those are trumpets which I was able to buy for ₱50 each. Cool eh? Served with chocolate coins and gummy bears for the kids. The chocolate coins symbolizes the bountiful new year and money because they are round and they are like money while the gummy candies, because it’s sticky, it could replace the role of “kakanins” as the one symbolizing for strong family ties.
We also had Chicken Nuggets and some Chips.
We were able to buy those Little Hugs Fruit Barrels at S & R. Those are fruit-flavored drinks that are quite tasty but with 75% less sugar. Of course, for the adults were different kinds of sodas.
Below are apple pies, which we just bought and then transferred to these red and white striped pockets.
Crinkle cut French Fries are always present during movie nights!
For dessert, we had Grapes, Buko Pandan, Ube Halaya, and Leche Flan. That bilao of Pancit Malabon was given by our generous neighbor.
Sis also made some Sausage and Tomato Sauce Pasta and Garlic Bread.
Lights and Sparklers
We love Despicable Me so much, we wore matching Minions shirts! I was the bad minion and Rome (my cousin) is Gru.
We also had some glow-in-the-dark bracelets and glasses….
Ykaie and I are “glowing” all night..LOL!
Unlike last year, we bought a lot of sparklers this year and made different shapes using it. My cousin Ate Nydia and her husband kuya Dan were perfect for a heart-shaped sparkling background!
It’s just heart-shaped lights for my little sweetheart, though…
To make the most out of New Year’s Eve, Ykaie and her cousins lighted up a lot of sparklers!
