Now…for my basket details…

The winner of the Movie Night Gift Basket will receive the following:

$50 Visa Gift Card (to order take out and drinks of their choice)

A DVD movie of their choice (if I am able to find it)

Popcorn and Red Vines

Gray Stripe Blanket

Drink Ice Bucket

Drink, Popcorn & Movie Printables



Set up a movie theater right in the comfort of your own home.  It is fun to make the night a little extra special.  I simply hung a piece of canvas (cut from a painter’s drop cloth)  The drop cloth gives the feel of having a real movie screen to project your movie on if you can!  Even if you can’t project the movie on the screen…it is still a fun set up!


Throw down a blanket and some pillows to make it extra cozy!  Chill your drinks on some ice in the metal ice bucket while eating food from your favorite take out restaurant.  Be sure to save some room for some movie snacks!


Use the printables to add a little extra pizzaz to your movie snacks.  I have also provided you with some printable movie tickets to give to your significant other as a private invite to your movie night date.  I can personalize them with the movie you end up choosing to go in your gift basket if you would like, or just go with the ones in the picture.


So…what do you think?  Are you interested in winning this Movie Night Gift Basket?  Be sure to enter and Good Luck!

    I just have to say this is a great idea for valentines day. It is always so hard with kids to celebrate it other then the normal dinner and a movie. Which most times can’t happen. I also love that all of you bloggers stick together. I am just starting out with my blog and realizing the amazing community of blogging. The support is great. I have a ways to go, but I can see where I am heading now. So thank you for inspiring me. And I will be entering because if I win it will be my gift to my Hubby and me. No trying to think of what to get him, and still spending time together. Yay!

  3. Alissa Udy says

    This is a cute idea! I love the crates for soda and snacks! Where did you find those?

    • says

      I made the soda crate. I thought I had posted the tutorial but when I went to find it I realized I hadn’t even shared it! I will have to do that here shortly. Adding it to the list ;)

  4. Melissa says

    What a great idea for a low-key, but fun Valentine’s Day! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway.

  5. JoeyfromSC says

      ha! I know right?! ;) Thank you! I did make the soda pop crate. I just tried to find the tutorial to share the link with you and I realized that I never wrote it up even though I had intended to when I originally shared in in July of 2013. Oops.

  6. Stacey Demers-McFarland says

    Such a cute idea! It’s hard with kids to get a romantic night out, so why not celebrate this day of love with the ones you love most and share a movie night with the whole family!

  7. Stacey Demers-McFarland says

    Thank you to all 28 of you amazing bloggers for these great chances to win! <3 you guys!!!

  8. Jenny says

    Such a cute basket. Thanks for the chance to win. It looks like a wonderful night!!!

  9. Barbara says

    I am in love with that popcorn basket!! Can you share where you got it and if you put some type of liner in it?? Thanks!

    • says

      Barbara–The popcorn basket is just a wire basket that I had. I lined it with a dish towel (a red and white striped one) and then just put the popcorn inside of it. So easy to replicate. I have seen similar baskets at Home Goods and TJ Maxx if you are looking for one!

  10. Summer says

    This is perfect. Who likes to go out to dinner and fight the crowds on Valentines day? Certainly not me!!

  11. Keriann says

    Unfortunately we have been unable to do anything for Valentine’s Day in a few years. First due to my back surgery and unable to do much due to pain. And then finances haven’t been great. So lately it has just turned into any other day for us. Which is sad I wish I could do something for my husband who works so hard since I had to leave my job due to nerve damage in my lower left region of my back down to my left foot.

  12. Angela L says

    I love your fun movie night gift basket! I also love you wood “soda pop” box, basket with liner and pillows! Did you make them or can you tell me where I might find them? Thanks!

    • says

      I made the soda box. I also made the popcorn basket by simply taking a basket I already had (found at Home Goods) and then lined it with a kitchen hand towel I had. Just lay it in there nicely and fold in at the corners. Then add popcorn and the sign. Super easy!!

  13. Thia beniash says

    Omg! I LOVE THIS BLOG! First time I have been here. Marked as fave and added to home screen. Sooo many cool ideas! Thanks

  14. lori Urey says

    Thank you for the chance to spend time with my hubby. Still love him after 27 years!

  15. says

    i love your idea for a date night in! my husband and i were just talking about what to do with three small kiddos at home for valentine’s, and this would be perfect. love the movie choice as well, that is totally one of my go to movies when i need a chick flick fix.

  16. says

    I love this idea! Did you know Austenland is releasing Feb 11th? And have you seen it? Because it is kind of the funniest ever! Just in case I win (hint hint) ;-)

  17. Kim Herrman says

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
    wondering iif you knew whhere I could find a captcha plugin ffor my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours andd I’m havging trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  22. says

    and thought I may as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you.

    If your Garage Door has been fixed with the presence of poles then attach the wire with
    the poles. Tilt up doors use fir, spruce and other soft wood; roll up uses oak,
    redwood or plywood. Many home improvement stores carry Wayne Dalton parts
    and doors so they would have additional resources for you.

    Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design.
    Wonderful choice of colors!

  25. says
