Movie Night



With a few more long, winter months ahead of us, coming up with indoor activities can become a challenge!  Especially if you are trying to entertain families in your home….

Movie Night is an excellent way to entertain both the young and old.  Invite your guests with this cute invitation from Tiny Prints.  Make sure to include what your feature film will be for the night.  (hint: if you want to entertain the kids and adults separately, set up two TV’s with different movies)  Pottery Barn has a great party planning feature you should check out for ideas, too….

We all know the best part of going to a movie are the treats you get at the concession stand!  Set up a spread that will have everyone talking…instead of putting out a bowl of popcorn, take pages from the newspaper (even better if they are the movie time listings!) and wrap into a cone shape to fill with popcorn.  Perfect for kids and for individual servings for adults so that you aren’t dealing a lot of hands going into one bowl.  Wrap hot dogs with tissue paper so they are easy for people to grab.  If you want to “dress them up”, add a ribbon around them or a paper bow tie.

Ice cream.  It’s a party favorite, yet so difficult to serve!  If it sits out on a table, it melts.  If you keep it in the freezer, people forget about it.  Pottery Barn is the genius behind this idea….fill a large bowl with ice and the tub of ice cream.  It will keep it cool and look pretty on your table, too.

We will certainly be having a few movie nights at my house in the next few months.  What about you?  What indoor activities/parties do you have in mind?
