Family Movie Night With Tampico

Thanks to Tampico for sponsoring this fun movie night post.

Our family loves having movie nights at home. Whether we are re-watching a movie we’ve seen a dozen times, or watching a movie for the first time, it’s the one time of the week that we can all just relax and enjoy time together. Along with watching the movie we will often play a game or two and have popcorn as we cuddle under blankets in our darkened living room.

Since movie nights are my favorite night of the week, I sometimes like to make them a little more special with decorations or fun snacks. This week, I decided to surprise my boys with a fun celebration in honor of the new family film, DreamWorks The Boss Baby. The movie doesn’t come out in theaters until the end of this month, but I was inspired to create a fun family movie night. I thought it would be fun to put a tray of snacks together and let my children be “the bosses” and pick the movie we’d watch.

If you know me, you know that as much as I love celebrations and parties, I love keeping it simple. This movie night can be put together in just 10 minutes once you have everything you need!

I chose to add in some {baby} blue colored elements including a blue bucket for the popcorn, blue and white chevron straws, a blue serving tray and individual cups that were blue with white polka dots.

To drink I served little cups of Tampico juice drink. As I’ve shared many times previously, Tampico is their favorite drink to pair with everything from movie night snacks to their sandwich at lunch.

For snacks we had cookies, popcorn and strawberries. If you watch the trailer for DreamWorks The Boss Baby movie you will see why I chose to add cookies to this movie night. My boys really laughed at the cookie scene in the trailer so I thought it would be fun to recreate it during our movie night :)

Popcorn is our usual go-to movie snack but I fancied it up a bit for this movie night. I mixed plain popcorn with a bit of blue decorating icing and separated them into little cups. I then sprinkled them with crushed blue and white candies.

Everything was put on a tray for easy serving and to keep any spills contained.
