Valentine’s Day is coming. What are you doing to celebrate? Since we have 5 children and don’t always feel like sharing our night with several strangers cramming into the same restaurants, we usually have a nice low key night at home…with the kids!
We have, in the past, done a nice candle-light meal and some chocolate fondue with the kids. They love being involved and really…they are the most important people in my life so it makes sense to include them. Then, because it is important for my husband and I have to our own relationship, we will plan a date for just the two of us at a different time.
This year I thought it would be fun to plan a family movie night and make it a little extra special. I shared this with you earlier as part of a Group Valentine’s Day Gift Basket Giveaway. The lucky winner has received her fun Movie Night Gift Basket, but I thought it would be fun to share these fun printables with you too in case you might want to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your own movie night!
Print out these fun tickets and give them to those you would like to invite so they can anticipate a fun evening at home with their favorite people. Pop up some popcorn and chill some of your favorite drinks in an ice bucket.
Fill up a basket lined with a kitchen hand towel to make this fun Popcorn Basket (basket found at Home Goods) or print out this Popcorn Box Template I shared for the Fourth of July (red popcorn box pictured above).
Hang up a painter’s drop cloth (which I cut down to hang nicely in front of the fireplace in our living room. This can be used as a decoration with some fun bulb lights or you can actually project your movie on it for a real movie theater or drive in movie feel.
Gather up your blankets and pillows and make sure you have plenty to get cozied up and comfortable for the main feature…or two.
