Backyard Movie Night 
Hosted by Supermom Rozalyn Schlumpf

Looking to host a fun summer theme party? Transform your backyard into a family-friendly movie night! Serve some concessions stand favorites and cozy up for a movie under the stars. What better way to enjoy a summer evening with your loved ones.

Planning for an elevated movie night does require some prep work and dare we say... technology.  Combine that with a little creative DIY effort and you'll have guests buzzing about your event for months. 

Here are The Basics:

1. Define the Space for where you want the movie to play. Line the space with lanterns or tiki torches to set the mood. Be sure to note you'll need access to power. Also, lighting plays an important role. Be sure nearby houses and/or street lights aren't interfering with your movie screen. 

2. Make the Screen. There are plenty of DIY options on pinterest; however one easy way is to use a crisp white sheet. You'll want to be cautious of the sheet wrinkling up or shifting in the wind, so be sure to secure it. Another great screen is the side of your home! 

3. You'll Need Technology! A Projector, DVD Player and Speakers. Connect your DVD player into the projector and speakers. For optimal viewing you'll want good speakers.

4. When in Doubt Test it Out ... before guests arrive, of course!

Now time to make the party pretty!!
