5 Things You Need for an Outdoor Movie Night

April 20, 2017




Hello, friends!  One of my favorite family traditions is gathering around the fire pit and watching a movie outside.  There's nothing more fun than roasting marshmallows while watching a movie under the stars!




1. Equipment-  First things first, you're going to need a projector, and a laptop to play the movie.  If you don't have a projector, you could always drag your TV outside.  Rather than using a screen, we simply project the movie on to a part of the house that doesn't have any windows.


2. Comfortable Seating-  It may seem silly to mention this but you're going to need somewhere to plop your bottom.  You could watch the movie picnic style on a blanket, set up a few chairs or break out the lounge chairs.  One of my favorite things to do is actually watch a movie from inside of the pool!  I had friends over one time to watch Finding Nemo while floating on a raft.  Get creative!




3. Blankets- It's best to always have a few blankets handy in case someone gets a little chilly.  It's amazing how much the temperature can drop once the sun goes down.




4. S'More Kits- Part of our family tradition is roasting S'mores during the movie.  Personal S'more kits can help keep track of how many S'mores your little ones have gobble down!




5. Popcorn & Candy Bar-  Of course, you  can't watch a movie without popcorn and candy!  Set up a super fun Popcorn & Candy Bar so people can custom make their own popcorn mixes.
