Movie Night: Beach Blanket Bingo

Movie Night, SummerAmy WileyComment

Summer makes us feel extra campy and silly, so we are throwing it back to 1965 to a crazy, goofy, classic beach movie… Beach Blanket Bingo!

I snagged this “Summer” beach towel at Target knowing I wanted to use it as a tablecloth. It might sound silly, but doing things like covering your table with a beach towel makes things fun and unexpected for your kids.


This movie has a lot of bikinis (not a shocker) and kissing… but overall it’s pretty clean and family friendly… I mean, it’s from 1965! The story line is flimsy, the characters are over to top… but it screams summer and what’s not to love? It has skydiving, dancing, and even a biker gang. You can watch it for free if you have Amazon Prime, or buy it here.


This colorful film called for a colorful table. A mix of Lilly Pulitzer plates and tropical touches made it all come together.


Cheddar brats are a favorite around here and seemed fitting for this movie night. They are always a hit with my kids!


For our drink, we mixed coconut La Croix with a heavy splash of pineapple juice. The result is refreshing and light. Try it!


Summer nights offer more relaxed bed times, opportunities to linger over a family dinner and the perfect opportunity to enjoy a movie. Here’s to summer lasting long!
