When it’s not raining, our summer weather here in Seattle is pretty spectacular and perfect for the drive in movie. Sadly, they are becoming a thing of the past, with a few still around, from Auburn’s Valley 6 Drive In to Port Orchard’s Rodeo Drive.
Instead, take advantage of a clear summer evening and host your own backyard movie party. Get started with the basics, a way to set up a screen and a few friends, and go from there.
Setting up a fun concession stand with TomKat Studio’s Movie Night set is easy.
Bash, Please’s backyard fête featured on Design*Sponge is full of amazing details, from how-to’s on creating your own screen and homemade popsicles, to fun props that created a vintage feel.
If you want to take it there…theme your menu to match the movie! You know what I’m talking about, Lord Of The Onion Rings. Check out TBS’ very extensive ‘Dinner And A Movie’ list for tasty pairings like Still on the Lamb Raviolis for The Bourne Supremacy. Hee…still on the lamb…
Nothing says summer like this Sparkling White sangria from My Recipes. A signature cocktail idea is a great way to wow guests with minimal effort!
If you have mad cookie skills, you have to make these popcorn cookies from The Decorated Cookie. Bag a few to send home with guests.
