This past weekend, I was scrolling through my newsfeed when I noticed the Academy Awards were happening. Usually for weeks, I plan a fun family party to celebrate movies on this date, but this year’s celebration required some last-minute preparation. Although our snack spread was no where near as extravagant as it usually is, we were all set for our beverages with our brand new KingsBottle 45 Can Compressor Mini Bar Fridge.
Prepping the Movie Room for a Family Movie Party with a KingsBottle Mini Fridge
This year’s celebration of award-winning movies was different from previous years. The experience of going to the movies has changed drastically. In previous years, movies were nominated that our family had exclusively screened in movie theaters. There was always a fun social aspect to seeing those screenings because we would run into the same local bloggers and their kids. It was a nice distraction from work and school to wave hello and catch up before the movie started.
Although watching movies has become less social, making movie night at our home a special occasion boosts our family’s morale during these times. One wonderful memory was when we built a cave out of our staircase to celebrate watching ‘The Croods’ on their digital premiere date. After a long school week, my daughters enjoyed setting brown paper up around our stairway and coloring the walls to look like cave paintings. Celebrating movies gives us something special to do during a time when it feels as though there aren’t many special activities to do anymore.
After cramming in a few last minute movie-watching sessions with a new trial subscription to a streaming service, I was as ready as I could be. Usually we set up a big red carpet for the kids to walk down, and we get really excited to find out how all the children’s movies we had screened in theaters did in the awards show. Since this year was a bit different, so was our celebration. Instead of making an actual red carpet setup, we tried out a green screen red carpet moment with the new camera. You can check it out below, and please make sure to leave comments if you do. My daughters and I always check and respond to them.
Another thing that made our Academy Awards night special was the brand new KingsBottle 45 Can Compressor Mini Bar Fridge. I had it filled with all the best kid-friendly beverages to make it an evening to remember. My children couldn’t believe I was encouraging them to drink in our basement with such convenience.
Usually I do my best to keep all food and drink in our kitchen to prevent messes, but this new mini fridge makes it simple for everyone to have a refreshing treat while we enjoy our favorite shows or movies. At 20″, it is compact enough to fit in our small space, while also being big enough to fit beverages for the whole family. My favorite feature is that it has cool blue LED lighting that complements the cool blue lights of my movie theater seating. This sets the scene and creates a fun ambiance to take an average movie night into a movie party.
It’s the little things that can make our time at home continue to feel special. Having a smaller celebration can be more memorable with conveniently stored beverages only an arm’s reach away.
