Do you literally want to build a snowman with MilHousing? In April 2021, you had a chance during our quarterly movie night featuring Frozen. Whether you were getting ready to PCS or settling down in your new house, that was the night to let go of all the stress in your life and enjoy magical Frozen adventure with your family prepared for you by MilHousing Network.
Some movies are worth melting for and this was one of them! All you had to do was set the mood for the movie night by following our fun and creative Facebook lives. You could choose to watch Frozen or Frozen II and press play in the comfort of your own home. If you were actively participating in our Facebook group (MilHousing Network Movie Nights) and using our hashtag (#mhnmovienights) you were entered to win some amazing prizes sponsored by Armed Forces Insurance and Caliber Home Loans Inc.
To get everyone into the movie night mood, we sent out 200 snack boxes to those who registered. The boxes contained Frozen popcorn bags, popcorn, candy, and hugely popular masks of the Frozen movie characters for the kids. We also sent out some prize boxes that had items such as cocoa, mug, popcorn, and beautifully crafted cookies from Serena West—our fellow military spouse who owns gift company called Westhouse. For the big night, our sponsors ensured $1,000 worth of prizes including a snow cone machine, popcorn maker, and Frozen starlight projector.
MilHousing encouraged you to share pictures of your movie night setup, costumes, and charcuterie board. You could also add 3 friends into our Facebook group and win Frozen customized move night t-shirt. The t-shirts are also available for purchase on MilHousing Network Marketplace along with other movie night t-shirts. Portion of the sale is donated to military spouse real estate scholarship fund, and buying a t-shirt also automatically entered buyer into the ultimate giveaway. Leaving a review on our MilHousing Network Facebook page also didn’t leave you empty handed—we had you covered with Starbucks gift cards.
MilHousing knows that not everyone has snow accessible in April, and so Kayla prepared to walk you through an easy kid craft of creating faux snow out of baking soda and a can of shaving cream. The kids loved playing with it! Michelle from Caliber Home Loans showed us how to make an Elsa Frozen Cocktail which resulted in a cool-looking blue drink. The adults loved this!
Lindsey, the co-founder of MilHousing, inspired us to make our own Frozen-theme brunch charcuterie board. The main item on the brunch board were waffles instead of crackers, and your desired waffle toppings—whipped cream, white chocolate chips, maple syrup. You could create your own sprinkles mix from purple, blue and white sprinkles, and spread-out mini marshmallows around the board to represent snow. Lastly, you could add fresh fruits like blueberries and bananas. Some local grocery stores carry Frozen brand items such as yoghurt, jellybeans, or snowflake gummies-those could all go on the charcuterie board—the options were limitless.
Lexi Fontaine performed her musical magic to kick off the movie night. She sang Let it Go and Into the Unknown and asked everyone to sing along with her in their homes. As little girls turned into Elsa or Anna with their princess dresses, boys pretended to be Sven or Olaf, and parents were preparing popcorn in the microwave, the movie night was ready to begin. Trivia questions were popping up all night in our Facebook group giving you extra chances to win one of the prizes.
