I did the same thing for our Lilo and Stitch party. They had some really cute luau stuff so I just bought it to save for July or August when we do our Lilo and Stitch because I know when I look for it later I wont be able to find it! I am so glad I found this thread but now I am getting obsessed!!

I LOVE this thread!!!!
I plan to use some of these ideas leading up to this summers trip!! Dd 15 will play along and enjoy it I'm sure, but ds8 will be over the moon to do this type of thing!!!

We're a board game family though I will sadly admit to all of us only playing about half the time that ds asks for a game night.
We have The Haunted Mansion Game of Life, Tower of Terror Clue, and.. I just got Disney Trivial Pursuit for Mothers day

I am absolutely going to incorporate one or more of the games into the night!!

Jannel80-What a great party! I love that you included a picture of your kids with the Mexico Donald Duck!!! I would love to add this movie to our list of future movie nights, but I called around and none of our video stores or the library has it. I am not sure where else to check. Not sure we want to purchase it since we have never actually seen it.

oopsiDaisy- Thank you! I rented the movie fom my library and that night was the first time any of us saw it. The boys liked it but I don't think it is a movie they would ask to watch again, so not sure it would be worth buying. My library didnt have it so I ordered it from another library in the same county as mine. Could you see if any other library in the same county has it and then have them send it to your library?

Yep-I tried that too. Hmmm-wonder if it is on Netflix? That is another possibility!

I put some butterscotch pudding in little cups and sprinked it with hazelnuts. Don't you just love our plates!!??

To be continued....

Those sandwiches look delish! Did you make them yourself? if so, would you mind sharing the recipes?


Thanks!

What great ideas! I've got 65 weekends left to go and a movie night planned out for each weekend from these great ideas. I'll start posting pics as we do them. First up, Snow White! I've got to move 101 dalmatians to 101 nights out though - such great ideas - thank you to everyone!

I've been lurking in this thread and just wanted to chime in and say that I really need to start having these nights at our house. I'm going to save the Three Cabarellos for my DS's birthday though, because it's his favorite.... Not anyone elses though, once is enough for most people.

Thank you all for the amazing ideas!!

We have 15 Fridays left until our trip, so I'm planning 14 theme-nights (15th is my birthday the day before we leave, so that's "Mommy themed")

Our first one is tomorrow, which is our 100-day mark, so I'm going to do a countdown night.
*I'm giving them each a new vinylmation to trade in Disney
*Using Disney cups we have, and leftover napkins from our 2010 trip
*play our Disney trivia Wii game or Scene-it
*put out our Disney stuffed animals
*pull out the photo albums to relive the previous trips


Now, I know it's quite early since the movie doesn't come out until June 22nd, but has anyone started coming up with ideas for Brave? I plan to take the girls to see it on 6/30, and would love to make it a theme night. TIA!

Oooh a Brave movie night....

Okay, so I have to admit, I had to google to find out what kind of food is served in Scotland. So a food idea would be meat pies; activity idea- nerf archery set. Of course decorations would have to be plaid right?

That's pretty much all I have having not seen the movie yet. It's a start. Maybe with all us of throwing ideas around we can come up with something great!

Brave night

On watching the trailer, I think you'd need some sort of sticky bun, or maybe just an round iced scone with a currant, cranberry or cherry on top (the brothers keep stealing them).
And they eat some sort of meat at the table, I'd imagine it's chicken legs?
But if ye wish her gratfu' prayer, gie her a Haggis!

We were going to do archery lessons too!

Thanks for the ideas!! I think we might be stopping at the grocery store on the way home from the movie, so I have a better idea on food. Now on to Craigs List to find an archery toy!!

Anyone have a recipe idea on those braided sandwiches for Tangled? My DD would love a Tangled party, and that would be perfect food for a bunch of 6 year olds!

Tonight is our 100-day celebration! I'll try to post pictures next week.
