Practically Perfect in Every Way

Welcome to those of you joining me from Picturing Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Disney's Saving Mr. Banks, a film about Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers and Walt Disney's attempts to persuade her to let him bring her words to film, is being released on the 20th of this month and I, for one, am very excited!  I cannot wait to see how the film turns out.

In anticipation of its release, I, and the rest of the Peach line, are paying tribute to Mary Poppins.  I decided to have a themed dinner with my family before watching the movie!  (I apologize in advance for the not-so-great iPhone picture.)

We had a tea party to go with the movie.  We had finger sandwiches (the ones on the left are cucumber and the ones on the right are chicken salad), vegetables with ranch, cakes, and tea (with a spoonful of sugar, of course)!

To make this a full blown movie night (which are getting hard to prepare around here, but I am going to try to more often... at least themed meals!), it would be fun to tell jokes at the table, like when they have tea with Uncle Albert.  You could also draw landscapes or other pictures and tell stories of what it would be like if you jumped into them, like Bert's chalk drawings.

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Can Do It Mom AKA Mouse Fan Diane.
