The Grinch Family Movie Night

Find out how to throw a Grinch Family Movie Night, complete with dinner and dessert!

Family movie nights are always fun, and we’re especially fond of our Christmas family movie nights. 

One movie we watch every year is The Grinch.  We’ve watched all the different versions, and we always enjoy the story.  It’s nice to have a show where the bad guy becomes a good guy.

This post is part of the Festive Christmas Ideas blog hop!  Find out more about that here, or continue scrolling to find out how to throw your own Grinch Family Movie Night!

Welcome back to year 6 of our Festive Christmas Event where we team up with a bunch of talented blogging friends to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season.

We will be baking some cookie recipes for you, sharing some party games, making some handmade gifts, doing some ornament crafting, and sharing our Christmas movies family fun. There will be breakfast recipes and as always our decorated Christmas Trees which is always a fun tour of homes.

New this year is Gift Guides (check out this Coffee Lover Gift Guide, or this Gift Guide for Cooks, or this Grilling Gift Guide). We are right there with you shopping from home due to Covid 19, and we understand how hard that can be so we have been busy little Elves doing tons of research to create fabulous Gift Guides to help you with your holiday shopping.

How to Throw a Grinch Family Movie Night:

For a Grinch Family Movie Night, let’s start with a fun green and red dinner. 

We love this Pesto Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes, because it’s not only delicious, but it’s quick and easy.  It takes 5 minutes to cook the pasta, then you mix in the pesto and cherry tomatoes, and dinner is ready!

With dinner, enjoy this fun Heart Salad.  Perfect for The Grinch, with his heart that was too small.

After dinner, watch the movie while snacking on these Grinch Cookies.

Or maybe you’d prefer these Grinch Popcorn Balls!

If you love family movie night like we do, you’ll want to check out all these fun ideas from our friends!

So perfect to add green to your dinner and dessert!! Pesto is such a yummy flavor for pasta that I don't get to enjoy very often, but I think I may need to make part of my Christmas routine.

Green pasta - great idea! The Grinch cookies are perfect for the occasion and so stink'n (sorry, could resist the pun) adorable with the tiny red heart.
