Outdoor "Drive In" Movie Party!

I have hosted a LOT of parties and I have to say, this is one of my all-time favorites to date! We had an outdoor "drive in" movie party and it was SO much fun! It was really simple to put together.....since the party didn't start until dark, I just did popcorn and a candy bar and decorated with some cute retro drive-in printables....but the sky is the limit with this could go crazy if you wanted to! The best part was looking out into my yard and seeing all of the parents and kids, snuggled up together in their blankets....watching the movie with big eyes and smiles! I have seen pictures of these parties but seeing the huge screen in real life was great! I am just in LOVE with the whole theme....something new and great for all ages!  I think next time I'll do a Grease sing-a-long....or maybe a favorite 80's movie for all of the parents! 

Fun Flicks was the company who helped bring this party to life....if you're thinking about hosting a movie party, you should go for it!  Fun Flicks is offering a fabulous promo to Paperbox Press readers....for $300, you will get a movie party package that includes complete set-up and take-down of the awesome movie screen, popcorn (from a cute vintage popper!) for 50 people, and no charge for travel within 30 miles of the Tri-Valley area! This is a $200 savings and your friends and family will absolutely love it! Fun Flicks can also do Rock Band or video game parties, and can stream live TV (how many of your husbands would love to host a "fight night" boxing party!).  Here in the Bay Area, you could easily host an outdoor movie party from now through the end of October, or even a winter holiday party!You can contact FunFlicks SF Bay Area by calling Paul at 510-502-5082 or emailing them HERE.  Don't forget to check out their website and "like" them on Facebook!  And tell them that Paperbox Press sent you!  This offer is good for parties Sunday through Thursday and can be used through December 2011.

Some brought camping chairs, others brought sleeping bags.....and EVERYONE had a great time!
