The little lad had his heart set on seeing Trolls 2, so his mum made a film screening board, created a banner for the cinema and even painstakingly created holographic movie tickets.
The icing on the cake – as well as the lad’s actual birthday cake – was a delicious fast food menu she’d laid out, with chips, burgers and pizza.
She’d even written out the menu, charging for the main meals as well as sweets and drinks.
The mum shared her handiwork to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, where her incredible set-up has received more than 5,000 likes.
She said: “Would just like to thank the members of this group for the ‘home cinema’ idea.
“It was my little boy's 4th birthday today, we did originally have a trip to see Trolls 2 planned but instead I managed to pull this together for him from craft bits and things we'd previously bought for the party we had planned too!!
“He absolutely loved it so thank you!!”
Hundreds of fellow parents have applauded the mum, adding they might copy her idea.
One said: “I bet that was actually more fun and less stressful for you than the original plan – brilliant!”
Another wrote: “What great parents you are.”
A third commented: “Wow awesome work, hope it was an awesome birthday!!"
While this parent added: “Well done it looks brilliant.”
