When warm weather comes around, we love to pull the movie screen and projector into my dad’s backyard and watch movies alfresco. There’s something about experiencing a movie under the sky that makes it so lovely – plus it’s a great opportunity to have fun with movie night treats like popcorn and ice cream. I recently brought this set-up to life with the help of the new Brawny® Tear-A-Square™️ paper towels, which feature extra perforation for lots of size options that come in handy when enjoying drinks and snacks or for entertaining a crowd. The paper towels can be torn into small squares, half-sheet rectangles, or full sheet squares which are perfect for setting up a movie night buffet. Check out the full set-up and some interesting ideas for popcorn toppings below!

I ordered a pack of 12 Brawny Tear-A-Square paper towels on Amazon just in time for the movie night, and was thrilled at how convenient it was to easily tear just the right size paper towel I needed, and waste less in the process! The paper towels were so absorbent too, helping to clean up messes faster and waste less. I quickly set out a variety of sizes on the movie night snack table and left a roll for easy clean-up.

When it comes to entertaining a larger crowd, buying pre-popped popcorn can sometimes make serving a bit smoother. Ice cream treats also make individual sizing easy and are quick to set out on a plate. For some fun do-it-yourself flavoring, I set out three options for popcorn toppings: an asian rice seasoning mix (super yummy for savory flavor), cinnamon sugar for a churro twist, and chocolate sauce because the mix of sweet and salty is always delicious. I loved combining the chocolate syrup and cinnamon sugar – but I definitely needed a full sheet of paper towel to wipe my hands off after!

I absolutely love bringing indoor rugs outside, and this small oriental rug from my dad’s house adds a great pop of red and a comfy seat on the ground below the sectional. I also swapped out the side tables for a fun pair from his sunroom that bring a bit of warm gold outside and add some contrast to the large wicker piece.
