DIY Outdoor Movie Night

by - 11:39:00

We've been pretty busy lately and haven't had time to do any memorable things with the kids (unless you count watching the Raptors). Buying, selling and renovating a house can really bog you down so I decided to do something special for the kids this week - a DIY outdoor movie night! We borrowed a projector from a friend and with the help of Kitchen Stuff Plus and their Summer Nights dinnerware collection I created this enchanting backyard theatre. Kitchen Stuff Plus really has the best value and selection of outdoor furniture and dinnerware to make any outdoor idea you have a reality.

I made the movie screen by simply tying two knots at the top of a king bed sheet and hooking on some bungie cords that were wrapped around a tree. It worked out perfect. This could work anywhere really, you don't need a huge backyard to make it happen (plus you could always just pull your TV outside if that's easier). For added comfort and ambiance I layered a few outdoor rugs, pillows, blankets and hung some outdoor lanterns.

For the snack bar I picked up a few southwest melamine plates and platters from Kitchen stuff plus, (so on-trend, affordable and durable!) I decided on a semi-camping, semi-movie menu; popcorn, s'mores, cookies, milk, you get the idea (and I threw in some fruit for good measure). The kids loved it.

One of my favourite things were these old fashion milk glasses and metal straws and my boys loved them too (although they did get spilled a few times lol). We eventually used these acacia wood serving trays to act as tables while the movie was playing.

Special thanks to Kitchen Stuff Plus for helping me set the scene for this magical moment, my boys loved this DIY outdoor movie night. I have a feeling we'll be doing it again real soon. PS - we watched Minions but I couldn't get it to show up in the photos lol.
