Settle into the holiday season by hosting a cozy holiday movie night. Gather your girlfriends and check out our tips on how to create an award-winning slumber party, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Chinet® Cut Crystal®.
Holiday Sleepover Movie Night Planning: What to Watch
Choose a favorite holiday classic, or opt for something light-hearted with an easy-to-follow plot so you can focus on what’s really important: spending quality time with your gal pals. Not sure what your friends will want to watch? Use the poll feature on your Evite invitation to pick something everyone can agree on. To make the fun last all night long, make it a sleepover and tell guests to come wearing their comfiest PJs.
Holiday Sleepover Movie Night Decorations: Make It Comfy
Set up your space in the room with the largest television or, for a more classic movie-watching experience, consider borrowing or renting a projector and screening your film on an empty white wall. Once you’ve found the perfect place for your projector, string twinkle lights in a large rectangle to create your own “screen.”
Clear the floor in front of your screen to maximize space. A couch can be confining for a large group — instead, set out a soft rug, bean bag chairs, cushions, blankets and plenty of pillows — bonus points if they’re in holiday colors. You can even make the party BYOP and have everyone bring their own pillow!
Keep movie night decorations simple with a Christmas tree, holiday wreath and a few ornaments scattered on the table.
Holiday Sleepover Movie Night: Movie Marathon Munchies
No movie marathon is complete without a concession stand of snacks. Set up a table to the side of your seating area so guests can access snacks throughout the show. Start with the classic movie munchies: popcorn, red licorice, chocolates and gummies.
For something more fancy — and festive — serve a spread of cheese and crackers and red wine sangria.
Display delectable treats in disposable cups (we like Chinet® Cut Crystal® Cups), then set extras on the end of the table so guests can grab them and go, filling up on their favorites as they please.
