Summerween: How to Create A Spooky Indoor Movie Night

Lately, I’ve been thinking about taking a different approach to my content to create a fresh start. I had shared a little bit on my Instagram stories about how I wanted to bring more creativity & fun, less stuff, and maybe do some Halloween stuff a little bit early. I was introduced to this concept of “Summerween” by my followers, and I thought it could be really freaking fun. I thought, “why not do a little movie night with some fun treats and get a little bit crazy?” I’ve already ordered a little Mickey koozie for Halloween, and Universal is starting to set up for Halloween Horror Nights. I’m so ready!

Not only was the seed planted for Summerween, but what if I could have an excuse to go check out my Halloween bins? We are still in the process of moving in, but we’re almost completely done unpacking and organizing everything. We have donated and gotten rid of so much stuff! It is so therapeutic to just live with less things, and I feel like we’re changed people, which I love. I basically only own five strapless rompers and four sports bras now (instead of tons), and I garden. Who am I?!

There was a thunderstorm rolling in, and that really set the vibe for the day. I had hoped for a good, moody movie Summerween night, and we definitely got it! First, I put on some Halloween jewelry and a spooky playlist to get into it. I cleaned up our sitting room area, pushed the two coffee tables to the side of the room, and vacuumed the rug. Then, I went through the bins in the garage and had way too much fun! I pulled out some fall garlands, fairy lights, pillows, blankets, slippers, and decor pieces. I moved my rolling TV into the room and decorated it with some leaves and fairy lights. The TV was honestly the most epic purchase ever, because I can literally bring it anywhere! I used the coffee tables to set up some decor and create a little spread with some snacks. It looked so good!

I want to address something really quickly. No, this was not a fort, and I’m okay with it. We can’t take out all the bins & blankets and dismantle the whole house. Instead, we did more of a movie setup. We’ll save the fort for the fall!

Next, I made a martini (in a festive glass of course), grabbed some popcorn, and put on Hocus Pocus 2. I did a little bit of Halloween sketching for some special things that are going to launch in the future. I wanted to play and design some cool stuff! I ended up nailing down three different designs. No, they weren’t covers, and they’re nothing you’ve ever seen before. They are very much inspired by all of you, and something I know that you would love. It’s also a full circle dream thing for me to be able to design and create this. I don’t know if it will be out by this Halloween, but I’m going to try my hardest, and I’m so excited! Should I give you a hint? There’s three of them that have different personalities. That’s all I’m going to say!

That night, Andre and I made dinner and had a Summerween movie marathon. The storm had passed, and the timing of it all was perfection. I think we’re going to keep the setup intact for a little while for more Summerween fun!

I had so much fun doing this, and I hope you loved it too! Thanks for being here, and if you’re interested in more Summerween content, let me know in the comments!
