Sharing the Best snacks for family watching movie. This Popcorn and Candy Bar for Family Watching Movie Night is easy to setup and your entire family will enjoy it.
Décor for Family Watching Movie Night
When I start planning a party I like to start with a color scheme and theme. I love black, white and gold and thought it was the perfect color scheme for our Family Watching Movie Night party. Since it was a movie night I focused on a Director Sign, stars and pops of gold. I transformed our bar cart into a family movie night party cart.
Director Sign is one of my favorite elements from the party. I personalized it to fit our family movie night. Our daughter loves to know the plans so I included even what time we were going to start the movie night.
Food and Drinks for Family Watching Movie Night
No movie is complete without popcorn and candy. I let our daughter pick out her favorites which included a mix of sour and sweet candy and two types of popcorn.
The popcorn options included movie theater style butter popcorn and a cinnamon popcorn.
I filled these black and white stripped treat containers with the candy B had picked out so we could all pick them together in our treat bags.
How cute are these black and gold treat bags? They added just the right touch of sparkle and were fun to fill and bring to the couch.
While I love a fountain drink for a movie since B is not old enough for soda we served ice cold milk. Have you had milk out of a glass bottle? It tastes even better because it gets ice cold.
For our drinks and the popcorn scoops I wanted to take my plain plastic and make it more glamorous to stay with our theme. I love washi tape especially for transformations like this. Simply determine where you want the accent to be and apply the tape. Cut the end and you are done.
Dessert for Family Watching Movie Night
A party without a cake is simply a meeting, right? I love to bake, but sometimes it is even more fun to transform store bought items into your theme. I wanted to create cupcakes that looked like mini containers of popcorn. First I placed the cupcakes into the black and white treat cups I used for our candy bar.
Then I took marshmallows and cut them up into small pieces because we bought the extra large ones. If would recommend buying the mini ones. Cutting the large marshmallows into smaller pieces was a sticky project.
Then we used scissors and cut l and x into the marshmallows to make them look like pieces of popcorn. B loved the idea of cutting them with scissors. It was a fun project for the two of us to do together.
