Movie Night: Home Alone & Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Movie Night, ChristmasAmy WileyComment


It's a double decker movie night... because we love both Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.  Two movies in one night is almost as fun as being on your own without any parents!

I set the scene with a table inspired by Kevin's pranks he used to defend his house against the Wet Bandits.


I had fun rounding up things to put in the center of the table... including Buzz's tarantula. 


I bought empty paint cans at Home Depot and hung them from my chandelier.  This was my favorite part!


When I found this little sign at our grocery store, I had to have it for movie night.


For dinner, obviously, we had, "a lovely cheese pizza just for me."  (Plus one with more toppings for the parents.)


I served ice cream sundaes for dessert just like the ones Kevin orders from room service at The Plaza Hotel.  These Target bowls are a gift that keeps on giving.


"Two scoops, sir?"

"Two?  Make it three.  I'm not driving."

Parental disclaimer... these movies have some language and Kevin acts HORRIBLY at times.  You might be like...


We've seen them so many times we use the parental filter... either hitting the mute button at the right time or loudly asking, "EVERYONE ENJOYING THE MOVIE??? KIDS, DO YOU NEED ANYTHING???" to drown out the bad parts.  My kids also know I'll say, "We don't say that!" an exhausting amount of times.

That said, these movies just never get old for us!  

"Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal."
