How to Plan an Outdoor Movie Night

In the height of summer your backyard or porch is headquarters for family time and date night alike. Combine both and cue up a movie on your DIY movie screen for a staycation highlight or fun gathering with the neighbors.

A bedsheet or table cloth affixed to a fence or wall plays projection screen, and your at-home projector makes movie magic.

Setting up a snack station with seasoned popcorn and traditional concession stand candies will win over guests of all ages.

Gather a few common household materials – canvas dropcloth, painters’ tape, fabric-safe paint, and a roller – and you can craft a custom blanket that feels expensive but only costs a few dollars. The stripes lend a nautical look that let this throw pull double duty as a beach blanket or picnic spread.
