Life's A Party!

Life's A Party! Here's a fun idea for a summer evening!

This past weekend, my partner and I invited some friends over for an "Outdoor Movie Night" featuring the classic "Auntie Mame."

As guests arrived they were greeted by Rosalind Russell herself!

Once they entered our garden they were welcomed in the spirit of Mame with a table filled with wine and traditional movie fare including popcorn, M & M's, and Twizzlers.

To display the movie, we connected our laptop to a projector and sonos speaker system and displayed the movie on a simple white sheet unfurled in the backyard.
Sonos S5 All-In-One Wireless Music System (White)
GSI Super Quality All-In-One Multi-Media Portable Mini Projector with RGB LED Lights - USB Interface, Connect to PC, Laptop or Notebook - SD/Memory Card Slot - Includes USB Cable and Table-Top Tripod - For Video Presentation

Everyone had a wonderful time eating, drinking and laughing to the classic lines of good old Auntie Mame!
In fact it worked out so well, I see many more screenings in the future! 

Quick tip: In order to produce your own posters for your movie night, simply download the freeware program Posterizer 1.0 here! This image processing software program generates a large scale poster of your digital photograph on several sheets of paper. Some assembly required ;).
