My cousin has had a terribly hard time of it recently – health problems and relationship woes. So I’m planning on spoiling her when her birthday comes round at the end of the month. The thing is, I’m on a budget so I need some ideas and an injection of creativity.
Here’s what I have planned so far –
Pamper Day / Movie Night
I’ve arranged for her brother to drive her up here from way daaan sarf. I’ll take her out straight away to have her nails done and a have a professional rub her shoulders in some sort of rhythmic fashion (I know some folk who owe me a favour so that’s a freebie). Then we’ll head back to Thrifty Towers for cake and movie night. She is a movie obsessive and film really means something to her so I’d like to give the evening a movie theme in some way….SEE I need your help.
Now here is where I fall down folks. I have the DVDs (Casablanca, The Red Shoes and which ever rubbish 1980s chick flick she fancies) but I want to make it really special without a spending a bomb.
I want to give everything a movie themed twist.
– What kind of movie themed cake can I make without wanting to kill myself – I hate doing anything more than putting butter icing on a cake…it’s too arty for me.
– What movie themed gift can I give her?
– How can I decorate the room in a movie theme?
Any hints, tips, ideas – on a budget? Please, please, please (worried wobble to voice) leave your comments and links below so I can really pull it out of the bag for one of the most important people in my life.
