Movie Night - Peter Pan

I want to apologize for the lack of posts lately.  Things have been insane here at the Disney in Our Blood household and are only going to stay that way for awhile (all good things, though)!  So I won't be able to post as much as I would like for the next month or so, but I will try to be better until I can get to a more regular posting schedule again.  :)  For now I am FINALLY posting our Peter Pan movie night.  There are so many wonderful ideas for Peter Pan that we just didn't get a chance to do.  What we did do, though, was a lot of fun!

So, okay, we didn't do any.  I know, I know, but our daughter just wasn't in a good mood that evening so we concentrated on the food and movie.  She's now going to school (I work there so she goes early with me) and is tired by the end of the day.  I think that has a lot to do with it.  Anyway, we were going to make pirate ship sails to go on our pizzas (more on that in the food section) and have a treasure hunt around the house.  We will definitely have to do this movie night again and do all that!  My dad is moving to Florida next month (which is one of the things that will be keeping us busy getting ready for) and Peter Pan is his favorite Disney movie, so we will probably redo this soon.  I will make a short post with some additional pictures for you once we do.  :)

We had pirate ship french bread pizzas (we would have put the sails we made on skewers and put them in the pizza), cannonballs (roasted chickpeas... SO good), pirate fruit swords, fairy dip (cream cheese mixed with sugar), and Pirate's Booty (one of my favorite snacks ever and the name was very appropriate).  :)

We don't have a lot of Peter Pan toys (if any, actually) so we used Ashlyn's Jake and the Neverland Pirates ship as a table decoration.  :)  I completely forgot I had gotten a blue tablecloth to put on to act as water, but I will try to remember for our next one. haha

I also printed out some silhouettes of Peter, Wendy, John, and Michael and cut them out of black poster board (you can find poster board at the Dollar Tree).  I love how this turned out!!!  I think I might also make a London skyline for our movie night redo to put under them.  That would be really cool.

I want to do another small scale movie night soon.  I know that small scale might not be as much fun to look at as some of the incredible things some people come up with, but I hope they still give you some ideas to create wonderful movie nights and memories with your family.  :)  We still haven't watched Enchanted that we got through Disney Movie Rewards, so I am sure that will be what we do!  Ashlyn has never seen Enchanted so I can't wait to see what she thinks.  :)  Have you had a movie night lately?


  1. *ahem* Where are your movie tickets, young lady? ;) Looks like you guys had fun!!! We're having a Wreck-It Ralph movie night next week! Even though me and the kids have watched it like 4 times already this week. haha We love that movie!!! I have so many cute ideas that we can't not have a movie night! I'm excited for it!!!

  2. I love the little cannon balls! So cute! Sorry Ashlyn wasn't in a good mood! I know the feeling when you set up something special for them and they're just not feelin it that day! :-)

  3. What cute ideas! We love Peter Pan and I am so happy it is finally out on Blu-ray!
