A Fabulous Home Theater {Mom’s Favorite}

Still having a great time visiting with my mom.

We keep busy and enjoy each others company.

She is a joy to be with as she is always happy. Never complains!!

Always has a smile!

In living with my brother and sister-in-law, she enjoys many comforts of life.

One of them is enjoying her movies, in the comfort of her space.

A fabulous home theater just down the hall from her rooms.

Welcome to the Standley Family Theater.

My brother’s custom built home included a space for a theater.

A few years after moving into their home, they set forth a plan to create a home theater.

When you first walk into the area, there is a game room.

Hey, you gotta do something during intermission! A large Air Hockey game fills the space.

On the other side of the “game room” is the beverage refrigerator and the popcorn machine,

to get your refreshments before you enter the theater.

When we have special family gatherings at my brother’s, my Sweetie

loves to greet people and offer them refreshments. My little hostess!

As you enter the theater, this lighted column is directly in front of you,

casting a magnificent light display!

These lighted columns are all around the room.

Everyone is provided with a pillow and a warm throw if needed.

I wish I could be as comfortable in a commercial theater like this one!

So sit back, relax, pass me a Margarita and enjoy the movie!

Now, my Mom would prefer a Stella!

Now wasn’t that home theater fabulous? I think if I had one, I would never get anything done.

I would be watching my favorite flicks or TV shows way too much! 

So from me and my mom, we say, “Have a beautiful day and keep smiling!”

    I’m putting one in my new house, can’t wait to enjoy it. You know the love I have for elderly people, being a home health nurse. Your mom is just so cute, I think I love her! Lol.

  9. Very nice! Beautiful spaces. Several family members of mine have one, very similar, and the kids enjoy it. My game room is currently a sunroom with a vintage tea room atmosphere, decor, and furnishings. Hiwever,in the future with grandkids God willing, I’d turn it back into a game room. Love the ice hockey game room decor you’ve shown. Your Mother looks adorable and who doesn’t love a cozy throw. God bless and enjoy!

  10. Wow, they really thought of everything when they built their new home. What a great home theater. Your mother looks so cute sitting in her chair with her throw. I must admit that I love to watch my shows and movies also. I don’t go a lot, some days I don’t even leave the house.

    So glad that you are having a great time making memories with your mother.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
