Summer officially begins at our house when we have our first outdoor movie night of the year. It’s our favorite thing to do on warm summer nights. And it’s a lot more fun when you have a crowd to share it with. So pick out your favorite movie and settle in so you can host an epic outdoor movie night party that will win you the coolest party ever award!

Pick out a flick your friends will love – we have a tendency to choose Disney Movies – but go for what your crowd loves!
Get creative with outdoor seating. Lawn furniture or blankets are the standards, but if you really want to up the ante, build an outdoor bench or use an small pools to snuggle up with blankets and pillows to make movie night comfy.
Give everyone their own snack stash by filling up plastic totes from the dollar store.
Make your own gourmet popcorn to make outdoor movie night more delicious. This smore’s popcorn would be the ultimate treat!
