Outdoor movie magic starts with a projector—the options out there are easier to use and more affordable than ever (Oh Joy! blog founder and creative director Joy Cho’s pick: the DB Power T20, $99; amazon.com). Make your own screen with a drop cloth, or invest in an inflatable option (EasyGO 14' Inflatable Mega Screen, $148; amazon.com). The closer the projector is to the screen, the smaller, sharper, and more colorful the movie will be. “Tape down the cord with colored duct tape on hard surfaces to minimize the possibility of tripping,” says interior designer and stylist Emily Henderson. Create a concession stand on a garden caddy or bar cart offering drinks, popcorn, and classic movie treats. Ask guests to RSVP with the name of their favorite movie, and pick one from a hat.
