Planning an Epic Day Backyard Party

Disclaimer: I am a Fox Home Entertainment Insider, and was given the opportunity to host a Epic Day Backyard Party sponsored by FHEInsiders.  All opinions shared are my own.


Epic the movie is coming out on DVD on August 20th, and to celebrate, we’re hosting a Epic Day Backyard Party with some friends this week.


Epic Day

As a kid, I remember the drive in, and how much fun it was to see a movie on a huge screen, outdoors.  For our Epic party, we’ve decided to do something related: a backyard movie screening with some fun outdoor activities.

For some ideas, I headed over to our local Walmart and started off in the party section.  They usually have a pretty good variety of supplies and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found these camouflage paper goods.

Then I headed on over to the camping section for some inspiration.


 These lanterns would be perfect to add a little ambience to the festivities.

When planning a party, its always good to make a list of supplies you may need.  Fox Home Entertainment supplied us with this great tip sheet on how to plan the perfect backyard campout.

For activities for the youngsters, we also received these adorable Insect Experiment and Nature Hunt activity sheets.  Since we have a concrete back yard with a pool, this will be perfect for fun in the front yard.  This is going to be so much fun, I can’t wait!

So, here are the supplies I’ve already picked up:

The Menu:

  • Camouflage plates and napkins

We’ve had a test run of the backyard outdoor theater, now all that I need is some last minute shopping for the food and beverages and we’ll be set.  I can’t wait for the fun to begin!
