Prairie Hive is a new digital lifestyle magazine following in the designer footsteps of other publications like Rue and Lonny. Though the first issue – which just launched last week – has considerably fewer pages than it’s decor-focused precursors, the pages are readable in one sitting and pop with colorful, creative design and party ideas.

If you’re looking for a backyard barbecue hosting alternative this summer, don’t miss the outdoor movie night featured on page 22. Mini lights, paper lanterns, pom-pom garland and cozy blankets give this casual party an eclectic, cheerful atmosphere.

A well-stocked snack bar is a movie night must. Brightly-colored candy in retro canisters, gourmet sodas and giant bowls of flavored popcorn give this party a youthful vibe. You can read on their blog that they used a PVC coated drop cloth that is almost white and has a smooth slick side to get an inexpensive movie screen.

Check out Prairie Hive for more ideas on how to host a backyard movie night, including movie and music suggestions, plus recipes for rosé sangria and curry and maple bacon flavored popcorn!

      Sara, the size that you need really depends on how far you place the projectors. I will write a post shortly where I will share the details about the equipment that you need.
