Little Women Movie Night Ideas with DIYs, Recipes and FREE Printables

My daughter and I have always loved our movie night sessions on weekends. And for our special mother-daughter movie night, we screened the new Greta Gerwig's Little Women movie, which is out now on Blu-ray™ , DVD, and Digital.

The movie touches on topics of sisterhood, connection, female empowerment, creativity and independence, which I believe are traits we all need to celebrate, especially nowadays!

For this post, I wanted to give you some simple ideas for a family of four. But of course, feel free to scale it up or down, depending on how many family members you're having at your movie night in.
This theme would also be a perfect Mother's Day or birthday celebration too!

Little Women Movie Night Ideas - DIY Decor and FREE Printables

The colors chosen for the decor of my movie night were pink, orange, yellow and green - pastel colors that evoke "spring" to me.

For any of my parties, I love shopping my home for decor. And at times like these, the fun and challenge is to use what you have handy and bring it together in a creative way to dress a pretty table or party space!

So for my table runner, I used colored wrapping paper and designed some pretty pastel printables to help me decorate my space.

You can download the same Little Women printables by clicking this link.

Used for the remaining decor, a combination of pink, orange and yellow faux flowers, books wrapped in the pastel colored wrapping paper as a cake stand, and old photo frames also painted in pastel colors.

I used these photo frames to display some of my wall art printables, which is such an easy DIY and helps to add pops of color to any space!

Little Women DIY Embroidery Hoop Wall Art

Inspired by the era of the movie, I also created a pretty embroidery-hoop wall art containing movie quotes to decorate the backdrop for my movie snacks/concessions table.

I'm loving how this DIY project turned out, and thinking that the hoops would also look so pretty as home decor for spring!

To make this project you'll need:

* Embroidery hoops - you can find these online
* Little Women movie quotes printable signs
* Hot glue
* Scissors
* Paper flowers or faux flowers and greenery - free flower templates here.

Directions:

1) Print your wall art signs onto white A4 or A3 size paper (depending on how big your hoops are)
2) Insert the paper into the embroidery hoops and tighten the metal clasp.
3) Trim off excess paper at the back of the hoops.
4) Hot glue paper flowers or faux foliage to the tops of the hoops.

You could also print the signs and simply add them to photo frames to decorate your home.

2) Place the transfer paper onto the front or back of your t-shirt with the graphics facing down, and place the freezer paper on top.
3) Iron on top according to the transfer paper manufacturer's instructions.

Little Women Movie Night Ideas - Snacks and Concessions

For our movie night concessions or snacks table, I wanted to serve something easy to prepare but a little more substantial than just popcorn and candy.

My inspiration from the movie’s era was to create a couple of grazing boards with food items and snacks that appear in the Little Women movie or the book, like French bonbons (macarons), cold meats, cheese, fruits, nuts, gingerbread, pink lemonade etc.

I created buffet cards for some of these food items, and incorporated each main character's name (Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy) in the titles for a touch of whimsy.

Round toppers, straw flags and buffet signs are also included in the printable set I designed, and can be used to decorate the snacks table.

You can download and print these table decorations for free here.

Directions:

1) Add all the ingredients (except garnishes) to a saucepan and pour over 350 ml (12 fl. oz) cold water.
2) Bring to a boil stirring often. When sugar is dissolved, take it off the heat and leave to cool.
3) Strain the mixture through a sieve to extract all the juices, then store this syrup in an air-tight container, refrigerated until ready to use.
4) Just before serving, pour the syrup into a jug, pitcher or decanter and top with 1 L (33 fl. oz) sparkling or still cold water, and add garnishes.

Little Women Movie Night Bingo Game

To make our movie night even more fun and interactive, we decided to play a movie night Bingo game!

To play, each guest gets a Bingo card. I created four printable, randomized Bingo cards in total with actions or scenery that appear in the movie: someone cries, characters hug each other, scenes of nature etc.

You then mark off each Bingo square as and when they appear in the movie. The first person to complete a row of squares (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) shouts "BINGO" and wins!

To create your movie night Bingo game, simply print the Bingo cards onto white cardstock, hand out pens or markers for guests to use, and have fun!
