How to Plan a Backyard Movie Night for the Ladies

Outdoor Movie Night for the Ladies

As the cooler nights ascend, now is that perfect time between summer and fall to host a fun little shindig…in the form of a backyard movie night! Did you know you can rent all you need to enjoy a movie right in your own yard? Beijos Events took the idea and ran with it, decking out the space with cozy seating nooks, serving drinks from a mobile bar, and setting out personal charcuterie boards.

It’s the ultimate girls night out (or IN) and we are ALL about it. The hardest part? Deciding what to watch! We’ll leave that decision up to you, but for now, here are 5 steps to planning the dreamiest backyard movie night with the gals, with photos by Caitlin Alohilani Photography!

1. Make a list + invite your gals to a backyard movie night.

2. Stock the bar with bubbles + vintage glasses.
