As a mom of four girls, we are big fans of the Disney Princesses. All of them! My girls each have a favorite of course, but really they adore them all. One thing we always do in our home is make time for a family movie night. This time, we switched it up and put together a Disney Princess themed evening for a special girls’ night! Sorry boys, this one’s just for the girls. We choose 2 movies, Tangled and Pocahontas—two of my own personal favorites. I wanted to make it special so I decorated the room princess style, made sure everyone had a special crown to wear, and added a few extra toppings that all Princesses should have; fancy slippers, jewelry, and a wand. I set up our coffee table as if we were dining in the fanciest of castles and pushed play.
During my planning, I found so many great ideas for our Friday night movie menu—all inspired by the Disney Princess movies! Take a look at a few of my picks. I couldn’t wait to try them all!
