Get ready to watch the story of Christian and Anna unfold in the final movie in the trilogy!
Fifty Shades of Grey was one of those novels I read within a weekend. I couldn’t help myself. It was the perfect beach read, and I finished the trilogy within a few days. To see the story on the big screen (or even in the comfort of your house on the smaller screen!) can take your breath away! When I saw that the Fifty Shades Freed (Blu-ray combo pack + exclusive packaging + photo gallery inside) was released at Walmart, I decided to plan the ultimate night “in.”
The Ultimate Night In
Since this DVD included extras that I hadn’t seen before, I thought it would be a fun way to spice up spring. Here’s to inviting over your girlfriends and having a sweet night in!
The opening of the movie sets the scene for the rest of the film, and I thought I would make a cute quote printable for you! Print this out and frame to set the mood for your Fifty Shades Freed night in!

Besides the quote print and a few girlfriends to set the stage for your party, we also created garlic and olive oil popcorn using a retro popcorn machine. It was a lot of fun!
You can rent a machine or your event or find an affordable one online. There’s nothing better than freshly popped popcorn. No one likes stale snacks!
We simply added olive oil and garlic salt for flavor, but you can get creative and experiment with other combinations. Since we popped our own popcorn, it was easy to customize the taste. We used coconut oil as the oil in the machine, and it made a big difference in the overall flavor. Everyone can create their own popcorn bag and add their favorite toppings.
Besides popcorn, I served a variety of fruity craft beers. I look for summer flavors like lemon shandy or grapefruit. They are easy to drink and widely enjoyed by everyone!
It was so nice to have this me time with my girlfriends. A few drinks, a good movie, and fresh popcorn helped me relax after a busy spring season. School is out soon, and I wanted to take a few moments for myself before trying to plan a summer to keep everyone entertained. Don’t forget self-care not only includes taking care of yourself but also includes taking the time to socialize with your friends.
So, to reconnect with your girlfriends or just for a simple night in with yourself, don’t forget that a movie and popcorn can do wonders for your mood.
Now that I own all of the movies in the trilogy, I’m going to have to start from the beginning to see their story develop. This movie ended the series perfectly, and our favorite characters truly touched us from beginning to end.
How do you connect with your girlfriends? Have you seen this movie yet?
