How To Host The Ultimate Halloween Movie Night
Pick a Halloween Themed Movie
First things first, what’s a movie night without the perfect Halloween themed movie? Now, let’s be real there a TON of Halloween movies out there now thanks to Netflix and streaming. Plus, technically you can say Halloween has its own genre – horror. As you know, I have small children so Friday the 13th – while a classic – isn’t exactly first on my 5 years old list when it comes to Halloween themed movies. Who can relate? Don’t fret I have a list of 13 Not So Spooky Halloween Movies designed with your family in mind. Thankfully there are so many family-friendly options. We themed an entire night around The Great Pumpkin from Charlie Brown. Halloween themed movie nights can be whatever you want them to be. It’s all about making memories as a family.

One way to make your Halloween movie night the best it can is by decorating. You can decorate your home for Halloween without breaking the bank. You can even pick up some inexpensive Halloween tableware to use for your Halloween movie night snacks.
