How to Plan a Movie Night Birthday Party at Home

Life has been completely different since the start of the global pandemic. For safety reasons, planning to celebrate special occasions has been tricky. Hosting the perfect birthday party is more and more challenging but no matter the situation, you just need to be open to trying something new. There are many restrictions still in place but there are also plenty of ways to make your loved one’s birthday celebration safe and simple yet fun and exciting. How about a movie night birthday party at home?

A stay at home movie night is a great way to bring together your family with fun entertainment. Have a movie night for your kid's' next birthday party and make the day memorable with a great film and lots of popcorn. To spice up the usual movie night, we rounded up the essential things you'll need to pull off a blockbuster movie night birthday party at home.

Party Invitations

The first thing you'll need are the invites. Make DIY Hollywood style-tickets if you are celebrating with older kids or bright and colorful ones for the little ones. Movie tickets will make your movie nights special and authentic so make sure that you print tickets for your family and if you like, you can also add your personalized touch. If you have friends who are joining in virtually, make sure that they receive e-invites for the big day.

Movie Night Party Decorations

For a little extra fun, transform your home and have a movie theater experience by decorating with backdrop curtains and LED spotlights. Shiny metallic foil fringe curtains make a great backdrop. A plug-in spotlight will make it feel like an Oscar movie premiere in an instant!

If hosting outdoors, use a white sheet and a projector for a picnic-style movie under the stars. A few strands of LED twinkling lights will be a great addition to your setting. You may also elevate the experience by going all out with your movie night decorations like your red carpet or aisle runners, banners and balloons for a five-star evening.

Kids love to help when it comes to decorating for parties. Make sure that they are involved in the preparations as it will add up to their happy birthday memories.

Snacks

A movie night will not be complete without a feast of salty, crunchy goodness. Add a twist on serving your popcorn by setting up a seasoning station and a concession stand with your favorite movie candy to choose from. You may also want to decorate with banners for a more inviting ambiance.

Great Movie 

It's showtime! Pick a movie to watch. For your stay at home movie night, you may want to put on a favorite from your childhood (Goonies!), something new from  Netflix or Disney+ or if you can’t decide, then have your family or friends suggest a few and pull the name out of a hat. You can use a random name picker if planning the event virtually.
