Outdoor Movie Night

Create your own "Drive-In" in your Back Yard

You can make your own drive-in movie in your back yard or on your patio this Summer.  

 It's easy to do with a little creativity using your own style.  Use a wagon or any table to display all of your snacks for the evening.  It's easy to pop large bowls of popcorn, give everyone a paper bag, and create a "Popcorn Bar" using various toppings for each individual to make their own personal treat.  

Years ago  I began mixing pretzel twists, cheese puffs, Chex Snack Mix, and mini chocolate chips in the bowl with the popcorn.  Now it has become the traditional way to serve popcorn in our house. Peanut butter M&M's are a tasty addition too.  Check out the supermarket aisle where you buy your popcorn for these seasonings...Ranch, White Cheddar, Nacho Cheddar, Caramel and don't underestimate the power of Chili Lime seasonings for some real zest.  

If you don't have enough lawn chairs to go around, buy a few inexpensive white sheets, roll them up and display them in a basket with a sign that reads, "Take a Sheet and Have a Seat." 

Here are a couple of ideas for showing your movie outside.  For a less expensive screen, hang a large white sheet or a drop cloth from trees or on the house and dress it up with tiny white lights around the sheet.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the movies!
