We love family movie nights over here. It’s a great time to come together and snuggle up with a big bowl of popcorn and treats!

 

 

In the summer months, we like to kick movie night up a notch and set up an outdoor movie for friends and family to enjoy.

 

DIY Movie Night Popcorn Bar - fun family night!

 

 

 

A quick and easy treat I like to set up for these nights is a DIY Movie Night Popcorn Bar.

 

Simply pop a HUGE batch of popcorn, and set out some sweet popcorn toppers.  This way you get to please both your savory and sweet tooth!

For my fruity treat lovers, try using gummy bears, Skittles, or Mike and Ikes.

    what did you line the berry baskets with?

  2. I was looking for a reason to have movie night and you just gave one. My four year old, Emma is looking over my shoulder and she saw all those toppers so apparently Veggie Tales is going to be the featured film.

  3. What a great idea! I especially like the idea of moving movie night outdoors. We celebrate Friday night at the movies … it’s so fun and I love that it has become a special night. Your addition of the popcorn bar just makes it that much more special! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love the idea…. but…. waaayyy too much sugar! Think I’ll try it with raisins, seeds, nuts, dried fruit…. all the GOOD stuff :)

    • That’s the best part Amanda! You can customize it to your liking :) Most movie nights we do have healthy toppers, but once in awhile, it’s fun to have treat :)

  5. I love love love this. It would be such a fun thing to start with my family!
