My friends Whitney and Emma (a.k.a. cat and mouse) had the great idea to host a Halloween movie night at Whitney’s store Girl on the Wing.  A few friends gathered to watch Teen Witch (a must see for all) and enjoyed a delicious array of treats and drink.  The girls even had a little vintage inspired popcorn machine!  This is truly one of the reasons why I am loving that we moved to Hamilton. We have met so many great people and events like these make me feel like part of a community.  I feel like I am living in a small quaint town surrounded by great creative minds.

The girls set the screen up with a projector and had chairs for everyone.  One of the highlights was when we had an “intermission” and the classic “let’s all go to the lobby” video played.  It was so charming!!  Here are a few flicks from the evening – I can’t wait to do it again!

pop! pop! pop!

All summer I have been meaning to set up an outdoor movie on our patio.  I have no excuse – I have a screen, projector, portable speaker, hot air popper – not to mention a sweet blow up sofa!  Perhaps tonight is the night?!  Well, to get me inspired – here are a few poppin’ popcorn related items made in Canada, found on Etsy.com!  I will update pics if we end up setting up this evening 😉

1. Personalized popcorn bags: Vintage Apricot – Langley, BC

These would be so cute to give to your guests!  Have them preloaded, or put out a big bowl of popcorn with a scoop…

Ummmm YUM!  I love the idea of making your own custom flavours – Pair this with a hand made soda from a Soda Stream and voila!

7. Let’s all go to the lobby – invite printable – Cute Cartoon Portraits – Montreal, QC

Send out an invite in style – Be honest – who sang the lobby song after reading this?  Best part of the movies, in my opinion.

UPDATE!!!

Guys, I did it! I set up the movie night – all this swag inspired me to get my butt in gear.  Especially considering there is not much summer left!  We decided to watch a Bond movie – probably a vintage one… let the popcorn start poppin!
