Spending An Evening At Home For Movie-Night

Posted by

The cold winter weather is a perfect excuse to spend an evening in for a movie-night. I love lounging in front of my television with a bowl of buttery and salty popcorn and a big box of Junior Mints. Even though I love comedies, I enjoy watching other genres of film as well.

Staying warm in a cozy blanket, snacking on your favorite candy, and watching a movie that's either a classic you have watched dozens of times (for me it's Gosford Park and Pillow Talk) or a film that was just released (my new favorite is The King's Speech) -- having a relaxing night-in may be the perfect way to spend a weekend evening.

Take a look at these living room accents and movie-night must-haves -- they are the perfect pieces to have on hand for a night at home...
