Last night I had my DisneySide Celebration! Although I had some post-party technical difficulties, I have quite enough story to fill in any blanks that may be visually missing from My Disneyside Celebration! (I somehow lost ALL the pictures on my cell phone before getting to write this post and had taken nearly all my pics during the festivities on it.) Want more details on my planning and my Disneyside? Check out my post from last month! In any case, lets get started with the sweetest part- dessert! Afterall, life is short so dessert first! (We ordered pizza for dinner and the kids ate in the living room while watching Monster's University while I set up in the kitchen.) I made cutout cookies for dessert in both the Star Wars and Mickey variety before the party.
I picked up cookie cutters from William's Sonoma a couple summers ago that I rarely get to use so I was stoked to make some Boba Fett, Yoda, and Storm Trooper cookies (and may have over done it with the food coloring in the dough)!
With the second batch of cutout cookies I went with the classic Mickey cookie cutters that I got from my DisneySide at home box and some others I had picked up from Walt Disney World. For these ones I used the cookie cutters in fondant to decorate and added some mickey sprinkles in the corners.
And of course, we need a little bit of chocolate so I let the kiddies help this time and after making a nice batch of brownies we cookie-cuttered them up to get some Disney-shaped brownies with our dessert!
After meals, movies, and snacking we decided to hit up the games that were included in the bundle: Disney Trivia and Disney Bingo. I let the kiddos choose their prize from the prize table (little did the kids know that I was going to pass out EVERYTHING on the table later that night).
Since snow in New York has been nearly nonstop this winter we ended the party with more movies and games because we wanted to wait out the weather. What better way to end a Disney night filled with Disney themed snacks and games? Some Disney Infiniti and Teen Beach Movie on a cold winter night!
Since the party I have gotten lots of feedback: the HP kits are amazing and easy to use, the prints are adorable and perfect for any little princess' room, and it doesn't take much to make children of all ages ready for a Run Disney race!
