Cozy Must-Haves for a Movie Night at Home

Isn’t it always a given that we need to get cozied up for a good movie?

Without question in our house, we all love to get cuddled up in cozy blankets to watch a movie.

In fact, we all need to have our own blankets!

Definitely take a look at these cozy blankets! How have I not known there are blankets with foot pockets? Genius!

And how about this fun cinema themed blanket, adorned with popcorn buckets and other tasty morsels!

Clearly the design options don’t end there!

If sofa space is crowded , then try the fun lounge pillows.

Setting the Scene

Certainly, this wouldn’t be a complete list of movie night ideas at home without talking about the treats.

What movie experience isn’t enhanced when there is an abundance of snacks?

If you’d like to make your own tasty treat try our Peppermint Christmas Chex Mix recipe.

Who started the popcorn trend anyway? Don’t get me wrong! I’m not complaining, I love popcorn, just wondering.

In fact, my kids were thrilled to have a popcorn machine in our entertainment room when we finished our basement.

Popcorn I can handle, but the thought of open drinks in our newly finished basement with new furnishings, makes me a little anxious!

Undoubtedly, I’ll be investing in some of these awesome soda can lids with straws!

If you’re looking to go all out for an epic movie night here are a few ideas to create a cinema experience.

Along with continual developments in technology, clearly the cost of electronics are getting more and more affordable. With this in mind, many are investing in mini portable projectors and screens, which make for the perfect movie night indoors or out!

And, a magical ambiance can even be created with these star twinkle lights.

If your family has a hard time choosing or agreeing on a show, how fun would it be to have one of these scratch off movie posters to help make the decision?

In fact, you can even customize them to specific show titles you’re interested in!

Once the show has been decided, why not display it on this cool light up marquee box?

Particularly his specific marquee includes 386 black and color letters & emoji pieces!

No question, my kids would be fighting over who gets to display the title!
