Head to the Great Outdoors

Did you know that you could easily create an outdoor movie set right in own your backyard? All you need is a projector, a large white sheet (Queen or King sized), pillows, some chairs or blankets, and clothespins. You may want to use two sheets and double them up if you don't have a solid backdrop. Simply hang one end using a line and clothespins while weighing down the bottom with bricks or heavy rocks. Voila – you’ve created your projection screen! Just set up the projector, connect to your computer, stream the selected movie and enjoy! Arrange the pillows, blankets and chairs around in a semi-circle for a comfortable place for your guests to relax and enjoy the show.

Charisma with Confetti!

Why not hand your guests some 9” airless sticks filled with metallic streamers as they arrive? These won’t leave a mess in your yard and are very easy to pick up.  We can also custom color the streamers no matter how small your order. Create a FETTI-frenzy at the end of the movie, incorporating Flutter FETTI will have the crowd feeling like Hollywood royalty. Using loose Flutter FETTI die cut stars as decor on your concession tables is another easy way to add ambiance. If you really want to make an impact, rent a confetti blower for maximum WOW!

Create It: Easy Concession Stand

One of the best ways to bring the movie theater experience to your night is by having a “concession stand”. Put out a wide variety of candy and snacks for your guests to enjoy while movie watching. Don’t forget the beverages! Set up a drink dispenser or cooler filled with icy cold drinks all can enjoy. Juice boxes are a big hit for any littles ones (less mess to clean up post movie!).
