Hosting a movie night is a great way to spend time with family and friends. Whether you have children or just want to invite some friends over, putting on a movie and popping some popcorn is a fun way to bring everyone together. When planning your next movie night, choose a movie everyone will enjoy, have your menu planned and rearrange your space to accommodate your guests.

Below you’ll find 3 quick tips to make your movie night a success.

Planning A Movie Night

1. Choose Your Movie.

There are a few ways to go about choosing a movie for your party. If you’re watching with younger guests, search for age-appropriate flicks. If you’re a fan of a certain actor like Denzel Washington or Jennifer Garner, research their latest releases and choose one that sounds appealing.

You can even choose a few movies and take a poll among your party guests to see which ones they’re most interested in.


2. Plan Your Menu.

Popcorn is a must for any movie night and is extra delicious topped with grass-fed butter or coconut oil. Be sure to stock up on tasty theater-style snacks as well. Text everyone ahead of time to find out what treats are their favorites; this is sure to make your party a hit with everyone invited.

Finger foods are easy to prepare and can be healthy too! Consider serving a veggie tray with hummus or a charcuterie board with a selection of deli meats, cheeses, olives, nuts, and berries.

And don’t forget the drinks. Pure filtered water works great. Fresh lemonade adds a special touch and kombucha is full of flavor an oh-so-healthy. Putting a little thought into your menu will delight your guest’s tastebuds.

3. Rearrange Your Space.

Choose an area, like your living room, where your guests can stretch out comfortably. Make sure there are plenty of chairs or pillows to sit on and that everyone has a good view of the television. Play soft throw blankets around the room for extra coziness and added warmth.

While you may have to rearrange some furniture for the most ideal layout, it will be worth it for everyone to be able to enjoy the show.
