Fifteen years ago, I met my husband in a bowling alley at the tender age of 16.  Within a month we were in love and our story is still going.  The husband and I have always enjoyed quiet nights at home, snuggled up watching a movie.  Now as a family of four, our kids love movie night snuggles too.  I decided to make our movie night a little special this week and put together a Snuggle® themed blanket and popcorn bar.

I was inspired to create this Snuggle® themed popcorn bar from our first anniversary together.  The husband and I headed to grab a movie from the local movie store and then to get some items to make dinner and some popcorn for the movie later.  We headed to the grocery store that evening and in the middle of the grocery store was this HUGE Snuggle® bear and a photographer.  We decided to mark our first anniversary with a fun photo and to this day this photo is framed in our room.

Snuggle® has always played a role in our lives.  From our first anniversary, to our first apartment, to our first home, it has been everywhere we are and has been our go to fabric conditioner and scent booster.  Snuggle® Ultra Blue Fabric conditioner is great because it provided Snuggly Softness® and 30 days of that fresh scent.  Recently, I discovered the blue iris bliss® Snuggle® Scent Booster and have been pairing them in the wash with Snuggle Ultra Blue Fabric Conditioner to freshen up our laundry routine.  Fresh laundry means more snuggly moments in our home and for our little homebody, movie loving, Snuggle® family those are exactly what we love.

I ran to our local Sam's Club to stock up on the Snuggle® Ultra Blue Fabric Conditioner and the Blue Iris Bliss® Snuggle® Scent Boosters in preparation for our upcoming movie night.  The items were easy to find and had some bonus March instant savings tied to them!  I love saving money and I have found that buying in bulk and shopping at Sam's Club really saves our family money.

We got home from our shopping and I grabbed our living room fleece blankets and put them in the washer.  I poured the Ultra Blue Snuggle® Fabric Conditioner into washer dispenser and then threw a scent booster in with the loosely packed blankets.

The blue iris bliss® Snuggle® scent booster comes in easy to use single use packs.  Simply just toss in the washer and run a normal cycle.  They are HE washer efficient and bring in that long lasting scent that we all love.

I made sure that the blankets were loosely packed so that all the blankets received that long-lasting scent boost and started the washer. It is important that everything is loosely packed and that you use the exact amount listed on the packaging to avoid putting too much product in one load.

While the blankets were washing and getting snuggly fresh, I went to work setting up our movie night popcorn bar.

First I popped the popcorn.  I used the original flavor microwaveable popcorn and made 3 bags.  I went ahead and put that in a large bowl and a couple decorative popcorn containers.  I wanted to create a festive feel to the night that added some excitement to our evening.

When the blankets were finished, I folded them up and sat them on the table with a fun little chalkboard sign to direct my family through our little popcorn bar.

I wanted to have a variety of toppings to create a salty and sweet combination.  I purchased some seasoning mixes for popcorn and placed those in front of the popcorn bowl.  I also grabbed some individual bowls and set those out for each person to make their own special popcorn concoction.

For the sweetness, I grabbed our families favorite sweets and put them in little containers with a scoop.  The kids went crazy over these!

We sat down with our blankets and popcorn mixes for our movie night.  Everyone was snuggly warm and excited to enjoy a night together.

The evening was a snuggletastic success and really just what our family always needs to stay connected and close.  Everyone truly enjoyed the popcorn bar and freshly laundered blankets in our favorite scent booster and fabric conditioner.  Several days later and my house still smells divine from these awesome products.
