Movie Night: Date Night at Home Series

Movie Night

Have you been sitting in your home wondering how you can spruce things up? Look no further! We wanted to create a new space that felt like a “movie room” for movie night at home.

Of course, all paths lead to Amazon! A TV backlight is a really cool way to create an experience like the movies at home.

These LED Strip Lights get the job done! Plus, they’re super affordable. I love that they come with a remote. You can change the colors with the remote.

In addition to that, there’s a setting that allows the lights to sync with music! These lights are easy to install. They’re on an adhesive strip and you stick them on the back of your TV!

Here’s how the lights look on our TV! This would be a great project to surprise bae with for a movie night at home.

Be sure to grab some of bae’s favorite snacks to complete the experience! I couldn’t resist grabbing these super cute popcorn holders to make it feel like we’re at the movies.
