First Comes the Wedding ... Family Movie Night Basket

Rick's boss got married a few weeks back and we had the chance to get dressed up and go out.  My dad picked the boys up from the boys and girls club, while we hit the town.  Well a wedding in a very cool barn!  As most of you know me by now I hate to show up with just a normal store bought gift.  I love to come with something special that shows a personal touch.

So often to my Pinterest Board Personal Touch Gift, I had this Movie Lover's Gift Set from Everyday Mom Ideas.  I thought this would be perfect to do a Family Movie Night Basket for the Bride and Groom.  They had both been married before with kids and just knew this would be a great gift for the whole family!  The link above only had a picture for the idea so I took that and ran with it!

What you Need:
Large Popcorn Bin (Dollar Tree $1)
Tissue Paper (Dollar Tree $1)
Special Flavored Popcorn (Ross $2.99 Each)
Candy (Dollar Tree $1 Each)
Spaghetti Sauce (Target Sale $1)
Spaghetti Noodle's (Target Sale $1)
Movie (Target Sale $9 - Walmart has a GREAT $5 Bin too)

Gift Basket done under $25, with a GREAT personal touch!

Arrange all the items in the large popcorn basket.  I put a little tissue paper in the bottom to make things sit nicely in there.  Once I had it an order I liked I put it in a large clear gift basket bag.  I added a ribbon and it was done!  I loved how it came out and it fit so great with their down home country feel of a wedding.  

I sure hope they have a great family night with this, I so would love one (hint hint) for any upcoming holiday ... lol

Don't forget to see the parties I link up to HERE.
