Take Your Next Movie Marathon To The Next Level in 3 Easy Steps

Transform the living area into a space that's reminiscent of a movie house


Watching movies and enjoying series marathons are two of the best activities when you want to unwind and spend some quality time with friends and loved ones. When you do these with loved ones, you get to talk about the best parts and scenes that stood out the most. If you're planning a movie night soon, take it a notch higher by turning your living area into a special indoor cinema. Get ready to work on a few DIY projects and don't forget the popcorn, too.

Ensure comfort

Prep the couch or sofa bed by bringing out extra pillows, sheets, and comforters. Lay these pieces all over the living area floor so everyone can relax and lie down. Who knows? This movie party can even turn into an impromptue sleepover! 

RL Tip: Be careful not to leave crumbs or spill drinks to avoid mess and ants!

Decorate with a theme in mind

Are you having a Horror night? A rom-com evening? Or a Disney marathon? Depending on the theme of the get-together, choose decor and accents that keep within it. For thriller fans, choose black-and-white pieces paired with quirky details. Those who love Disney can work with cut-out party hats and pastel colors. You can also work with generic decor like printouts of a film reel, a clapper, and framed movie posters.

Bring the party outdoors

If you’re feeling a little bold, why not try an outdoor viewing party? You can work with a white cloth or sheet to serve as screen then connect your laptop to a projector. You can set up a couch and chairs or a blanket paired with comforters and pillows. To complete the vibe, prepare fairy lights as part of your decor or simply marvel at the stars.
