Being the big Disney fans we are, we've been anxiously anticipating the release of Teen Beach 2! And we were so excited to learn that it would be released on DVD, the same day it was airing on TV. My daughter gathered a couple friends, and I worked quickly on putting together an outdoor movie party.
Our friends over at Sweet Talk Bake Shoppe made some darling beach themed cookies! I used the outer cardboard cover, from the Teen Beach 2 DVD, and put it in a frame.
No movie party is complete, without popcorn! I dusted off the popcorn machine, and made a fresh batch for our movie goers to enjoy.
I found some smaller sized beach pails, and decided they'd be perfect to serve popcorn in!
I wanted to bring a little of the beach to our party, so I purchased some sand at my local Home Depot. I placed a few scoops of sand inside of a serving tray, and used it as a display for our drinks, pineapple cups, and a beach pail ice bucket.
I also served a couple other crunchy snacks for our outdoor movie party. A yummy snack mix, and goldfish crackers hit the spot. They were served in small party cups, and set out on cake stands & sand.
Once the movie ended, we would be roasting marshmallows, and creating yummy S'mores in our firepit. As a fun display, I set out Reese's peanut butter cups, and mini Hershey bars inside of a 3-tiered tray, from Pick Your Plum. I also set out graham crackers, and mallows.
I put together a movie screen by attaching some thin canvas fabric to PVC pipe. I cut strips in the fabric on the top, middle, and bottom. It was super easy to do, and very inexpensive. Not bad for a last minute gathering!
To hold the PVC pipes in place, I hammered rebar into the ground, and slid the pipes over the top.
I thought it would be fun for our movie guests to lounge on pool rafts, while watching the movie, and munching on all the tasty movie treats.
It was such a fun evening, under the stars! The movie was entertaining, and the guests had a really great time. This was our first outdoor movie night, this Summer. I know it won't be our last!
