Weekend Recreation: Hosting an Outdoor Movie Party

2,087

When I was a little kid, my parents and I often went to the outdoor movie night nearby. We enjoyed the movie as well as had a wonderful time with the gentle breeze caressing our cheeks. What could be better than this? I’ve been thinking about hosting an outdoor movie party for a long time.

Finally, I did it last week. Thought it was my first time hosting this kind of party, it went well actually. My friends really enjoyed themselves. So I would like to introduce how I prepared for the party and what should be paid attention to. If you are going to throw a movie party, I hope you can get a bit inspiration from it. If you have already thrown a party, please leave your comment below and share with us.

I was going to transformed my little back yard into a cozy and perfect place for watching movies. So I prepared a soft mattress and some blankets, because it might be a little bit cool at night. In case some friends preferred sitting, I also prepared some chairs for them.

A night party won’t be perfect if there are no decorative garden lights. So I twined the string of lights around the tree to create a starry scene in my back yard. When the sun went down, it seemed we were surrounded by twinkle stars. Before the movie started, we turned off the lights and then turned on after it finished.

I brought the necessary ingredients I needed the day before the party. As for the menu, I decided to go simple. So I made salad and some mouthful snacks. Of course popcorn and soda were available too. Before my friends arrived, I assembled the drinks with the vampire wine glass which I specially prepared for the party. Then set up a refreshment table in the place where they could easily reach without missing part of the movie.

Last but least, let’s talk about picking a movie. Why do I mention it at the end of the post? Picking a movie seems a bit tricky. I thought so too. Actually, it depends on you guests. It is hard to tell which one or which type is the best. As I didn’t want it to be too intense, so I picked the classic Back to the Future.
