what could be better than getting your friends & family together for a movie night under the stars? 

here's how to set the scene:

screen: click here for instructions on making the perfect screen out of drop cloth
projector: did you know you could turn your iphone into a projector?! 

lighting: ambiance is everything. light candles (citronella if you live in the south) and hang outdoor string lights for a subtle effect. 

seating: use beach chairs...they are low to the ground, cheap and come in such fun colors. add cozy pillows + blankets like the ones shown above. 

snacks: what movie is complete without popcorn and coke. i love the vintage feel of these nostalgic paper bags and coca cola in a bottle. the cupcakes are such a fun touch too.

film: i picked annie because well...skylar and i love it. i mean really, who doesn't? (husband doesn't).
