DIY Popcorn Bar for Family Movie Night.
One of my favorite holiday activities is holiday movie night with the family. If you want to host some kind of holiday party or just looking for a creative way to jazz up movie night with the family, a DIY popcorn bar is a great, inexpensive option that doesn’t require a lot of prep! Check out some other holiday party ideas here and here Happy Holidays!
Setting up your DIY popcorn bar
Per usual, just about all of the items I used for my DIY popcorn bar came from the Dollar tree. I opted to have a plain popcorn and a sweet kettle corn. But feel free to include seasonings and cinnamon sugar to create your own sweet or savory flavors. You can get as creative as you want with the toppings. Nuts, mini pretzels, grated Parmesan cheese, the sky is really the limit here.
Movies for a Family Holiday Movie Night
There is nothing more cozy than snuggling up on the coach with a fluffy blanket, and lots of snacks. Once you’ve got your snacks and beverage of choice in hand, the next question is what to watch. Here are my suggestions for family friendly holiday movies:
- Home Alone – a classic, that most kids today aren’t even aware of.
- Elf – this movie is so funny
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- The Santa Clause
- A Christmas Story – another classic
- The Polar Express – the colors and imagery are beautiful.
- The Nutcracker
- A Charlie Brown Christmas
- The Muppet Christmas Carol
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
Movies for a Girls Night in Holiday Movie Night
This theme can certainly be used for an adult party. Swap out the juice boxes for wine 😉 Some of my favorite adult friendly holiday movies to watch are:
- Best Man Holiday – make sure you have Kleenex on hand.

- Four Christmases – I have seen this movie a million times and still laugh every time I watch it.
- This Christmas – Idris Elba—do I need to say anything more!
- A Bad Moms Christmas
- Last Holiday
- The Holiday
- Love Actually
- Sex and The City

A holiday movie night with a DIY popcorn bar is the perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit.
