Summer Staycation Movie Night - 2 Movies + 2 Movie Snacks

Do you need to plan a fun movie night for your summer staycation? Thanks to adding a Haier 40″ LED TV in my Game Room, we are now planning movie nights with one movie for the kids and one movie for parents. Upgrading my TV has saved Date Night in my house because we can now enjoy two different movies at the same time. Tonight the kids are watching Rio while my husband and I are watching French Kiss. Here are some fun snack and drink recipes for you to enjoy at your house when you watch these movies. Pin it if you love these movie snack ideas!

French Kiss Movie Night Snack - French Kiss Cheese Skewers and Sea Breeze Mocktail

French Kiss is my favorite romantic comedy to watch, so I really enjoyed creating a snack and drink to enjoy during this movie. I knew I wanted to do something with cheese for the snack, but I wanted it to be finger food that would be easy to eat in the dark while the movie is playing. I cut four different kinds of cheeses and flatbread into half-circles using a cookie cutter. I assembled them on a bamboo skewer and stuck a grape on the end. A savory snack of cheese requires a fruity drink to wash it down with! Do you remember when Meg Ryan orders a Sea Breeze on the beach? I made a mocktail version to enjoy and here’s my recipe:

Rio Movie Night Snack - Blue Tropical Drinks and Carnival Fruit Cups My kids got so excited when they saw the special snack and drink I made for them to have while watching Rio. There were squeals of delight which made me feel like I had just won the “Best Mom Ever” award. The Blue Tropical Drink was a hit probably because of the addition of the large googly eye and striped straw. Sometimes I forget how much fun it is to “dress snacks up” – and this was an easy snack to dress up so I’ll definitely make it again! The Carnival Fruit Cups are simply a slice of orange on the bottom with grapes in the cup and a pineapple ring on top. My kids love cherries so I added one to the middle of the pineapple ring and to the bottom of the drink. I accidentally made the drink look like Blue is wearing a yellow scarf (just like in the DVD case cover) by adding the pineapple ring. Here is my recipe for the Blue Tropical Drink:
