Thank you Bed Bath & Beyond for partnering with me on this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
We usually watch a movie as a family on Saturday evenings, but with all the time we are spending at home. Lately, we’re watching more movies now than ever. I’m always looking for ways to keep things fun for all of us, especially when Piper chooses the same movie, nine times out of ten!
Bed Bath & Beyond has countless fun kitchen gadgets and accessories to mix things up while staying at home. For our movie night, I put together a snack tray with freshly popped popcorn and all the fixin’s! As soon as I saw the Dash Popcorn Maker I fell in love with the fun color and sleek design. I always love appliances that are pretty enough to leave out on the counter and this definitely fits the bill!
Piper loves to help in the kitchen so she was thrilled when I let her pour the kernels into the popcorn maker. She acted like it was Christmas morning when it starting popping into the bowl! Then I poured melted butter over the popcorn bowl and a sprinkle of sea salt. I’m pleasantly surprised by how much better the fresh popcorn tastes compared to the stuff out of a bag!
I loaded up the Pantone Folding Tray with the popcorn bowl, mini chocolate chips, peanut butter trail mix, and chocolate candies for our movie night. When we were ready to start the movie, I brought the tray to the couch and set it on the stand. I know we’ll get a ton of use out of the tray table in the future plus the mint color matches perfectly with our living room!
We’re doing out best to use this time at home to create new traditions and adding homemade popcorn to our family movie nights is definitely a must! I’m planning to make white cheddar popcorn this week!
There’s nothing quite like snuggling up on the couch with your loved one to watch a movie. But, sometimes it’s hard to come up with ideas for what to watch. Here are 8 movie night at home ideas to get you started!
I hope this inspires you to use this time at home to create fun and simple memories with your family!
