Candlelight Supper: BACKYARD MOVIE NIGHT

Monday, July 25, 2016


           We are having a movie night outside tonight!  What fun!

We have access to a large outdoor screen and are going to watch Zootopia.  Getting ready and watching with friends and family is half the fun.  We'll just gather up the outdoor chairs, benches, double porch swing and cozy up together.  As soon as the sun sets we will start.  Can't wait!

                                    Lots of goodies to share!

We are enjoying our new drink holder.  I found it at my favorite pharmacy/gift shop.  This was the small one.  They have two larger sizes.

Some organic lemons to slice and add to the lemon drinks or water.

I made a couple of windmills.  I haven't made them since elementary school.

Someone is bringing a little fryer so we will make the Churro's and Funnel cakes.  I especially love the funnel cakes.  The best I have ever had was in Knott's Berry Farm.  They pour their own Boysenberry syrup over the top.  

           Some special lemon-amaretto cookies from Home Goods.

           Our popcorn popper with lots of toppings and add-ins.

I filled a little yellow lunch box with white and yellow (vanilla & lemon) salt water taffy.

I placed some little dampened washcloth's for finger towels in a little yellow ceramic berry box.

I have had these heavy-weight plastic plates for years.  They can even hold a large steak and won't flex when cutting.

The 5 popcorn flavors which you just sprinkle on are Ranch, Nacho Cheese, Butter, Garlic Parmesan, & White Cheddar.  I have provided additional salt, plus caramel, white, and dark chocolate chips.  They are great mix-ins for hot buttered popcorn.

Underneath the table are ice cold water bottles in a tub with a couple of blankets in a tote.  It will cool off at night.  Right now it has been about 100 degrees for a couple of weeks and will be for the next 6 days or so.  The humidity is from 0% to 10%.

These cute powdered drink mixes I found at a Home Goods while on vacation.  The flavors are called Raspberry Lemonade, Amazing Lime Lemonade, and Strong Lemon Lemonade.

       Our last little treat is some twisted red pull-apart licorice.

   Ready set go!  It is getting dark and the movie is about to start.

Thanks for looking!  Feel free to leave a comment below.  Have a great week!

Your tablescape brings out the child in me. Who wouldn't be excited to see all the whimsy and goodies on the table. I love the taffy in the lunch box. I get so excited to see a great movie just by looking at your popcorn filled containers. When is the show....I will be there.
