In the past few months I’ve really been wanting to get around to catching some of the classics at least. As much I want to catch up with this art form it’s not half as much as I like organizing people getting together! Recently my friends and I realized one of us hadn’t watched Delhi Belly (a movie I thought was hilarious) so we organized a special screening. So much for catching up on the classics. Ha!
A movie night is a great way to get friends together and chill out without the formality or effort of a dinner or cocktail party.
Take your shoes off, put your feet up and use the menu below as inspiration for your own movie night. You can make it as elaborate or low rent as you like but just remember that the focus of the night is not the food and so finger food and snacks probably work best.
Since this movie night didn’t happen at my house, I was packing the food into a little box when I realized that it would make a cute gift idea. Pack microwavable popcorn packs, a bottle of cola, something sweet (that won’t spoil), a movie CD and a pair of pajamas together and gift it to someone as a pre-prepared movie night.
I love the little menu format I found (see below), just google movie night images and there are lots of cute options available. Since the focus is on no fuss food, the menu is:
Tuna Dip with Crackers
Hung Curd Dip with Carrot and Cucumber
Cucumber and Feta Open Sandwiches
Mango and Yoghurt Popsicles
Mango Cheesecake with Mango Jelly
Vanilla Rum Colas
