One of the first things I wanted to do when we moved into our house was to make outdoor movie nights a summer tradition. Four years and two children later, we finally did it. And let me just say, a tradition has officially begun. Thanks to the Bay Area’s infamous Indian Summers, I’m relieved to know that we still have a couple months of beautiful weather to enjoy flicks in our backyard. The best part about our inaugural movie night was surprising Quincy and all of his friends upon coming home from school. The looks on their faces were priceless. After all, what’s better than getting to indulge in classic theater foods and snacks on a school night?
In addition to the hot dogs and popcorn, I loved the idea of changing up dessert and serving Chobani Flips yogurt snacks – especially since they’re available in so many kid favorites, like Mint Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Dream and Chocolate Haze Craze. Easy and mess free, it was a no brainer. The set up involved layering a few outdoor rugs and pulling out nearly every cushion we own from inside the house. Comfort is key! All in all, it was a perfect night, and destined to be replicated time and time again.
