I think we are finally to the point where life is pretty much back to normal after moving, holidays, traveling, etc. etc. etc.!
We now feel like we can come home from work and relax, which is nice.
We can also go back to our, infrequent but special, date nights.
One of things we used to do every Friday or Saturday night is have date night movie night. I've missed those and decided to surprise Mr. B with stay at home, Date Night Movie Night!
At our previous house, Mr. B had converted part of the basement into a home theater complete with a projector and a 110" screen. Of course, when we moved, the new house had to accommodate the same sort of set up.
He got that space & more! The basement in the new house is HUGE! And fully finished to boot!
Plenty of room for the screen and seating! He still needs to put the curtains up on the sides of the screen but it's working for now.
Now that we have a bigger space for our movie date nights, I can even make it that much more special by laying out a spread of Mr. B's favorite snacks to nosh on while we watch one of our favorite flicks.
Luckily, one of my favorite stores, Cost Plus World Market, has all of his favorite food & drinks! Yummy stuff from around the world for movie night, or entertaining any time!
From meats and cheese
To gourmet crackers.
And even, something sweet for my sweetie!
No theater would be complete without a candy counter and, of course, we have one of those too! Perfect for setting up my spread.
I was thrilled to find that Cost Plus World Market has all kinds of different popcorn flavors including traditional movie theater popcorn and Cracker Jacks!
I put some of the White Cheddar into a big canister I found at World Market
while the Movie Theater popcorn went into the cute red Popcorn bowl also found at World Market.
I wrapped the prosciutto around some big fat pretzels and arranged on a tray with the other meats and crackers. (pausing to let you know, the Cheese Melts crackers are the bomb! I could have eaten the whole box myself! Same with the smoked gouda cheese spread. Heaven!!)
I made up the red velvet cupcakes, dusted the vanilla bean frosting with some fine red candy, and placed those on a silver tray also. Just because our date is at home doesn't mean we can't be a tad fancy, right?

It was so much fun putting all of this together, and seeing Mr. B's face when he came down the stairs was priceless! He thought we were going back to our old ways of date night! No siree! Welcome to the new and improved Date Night Movie Night Honey!
Now, how about you? Do you love movies?
