outdoor movie night

.

Last night, a bunch of friends convened in our back yard for an outdoor movie night.  I had been wanting to host one for a while now, and our schedules and the rain forecast finally decided to come together. 😀

We decided to have a Pixar double feature — Up and Finding Nemo.  Complete with two Pixar shorts and a mock movie preview green screen made by my sister.

The gazebo in the back yard became the refreshment center.  A table for snacks (don’t forget the popcorn!) and a hot chocolate station.  From our patio to the gazebo, we created a lighted path with votive candles nestled in some sand in the bottom of white paper bags.  These turned out so much better than I expected and provided a Tangled-esque lighted lantern pathway to follow.

Despite the mosquitoes and 95% humidity (yeah… this is November in the south :P), a good time was had by all.  Hopefully this is just the first of many more outdoor movie nights.

One thought on “outdoor movie night

  1. We just watched Up last night too! Although with the lower 30 degree weather, our movie nights are usually reserved for the living room. 😉 Sounds like you all had a blast. 😀
