Disney Family Movie Night: Lilo & Stitch

* Menu Clipart from: clipartbest.com and clker.com *

Hey all!
Back again today to share our first Disney Family Movie Night! Our trip for this year got cancelled due to DH's fluctuating Army schedule (would have been our first DVC trip, my parents just bought earlier this year!). So to keep the Disney magic alive until our next trip (maybe Christmas 2015? TBD really...) I thought Disney movie nights would be perfect! We plan on doing them weekly, except December where we'll switch from Disney to Christmas movies ;)

I'm a planner, so this took a bit of planning for me. I scoured the internet for ideas, using mostly Pinterest (see my board here!) and Disboards.com to find most of my inspiration. Then I printed out a bunch of printables, the ones that I shared with you yesterday {here}, and jotted down the myriad of ideas.

Thankfully DH was totally onboard with the themed movie night idea (so blessed DH now loves Disney as much as I do!) so off we went... At first we were planning to watch Pocahontas, but when DH found Hawaiian pork at the local farmer's market that morning, we switched it to...

***** Lilo & Stitch *****

Hawaiian Pork & Shrimp
Maui Cabbage
Coconut Rice
Tropical Fruit Salad
"Ohana" Bread (just regular gluten-free bread from a local bakery, but had to have a fun name!)
Honey Butter & Pineapple Jam
Hawaiian Dump Cake (just a dump cake with cherries and peaches, should have done cherries and pineapple!)
"Jumba Juice" (yes, I misspelled it on our menu, whoops!)

Lilo & Stitch coloring pages
Big leaves to decorate & color
Make Hawaiian flowers

And without further ado, here's a few photos....
Utensils, menu, and "Ohana" bread. Decorations were just green felt "table runner," lime green tulle, and flowers from a deconstructed lei. The character cutouts were from Disney's Lilo & Stitch Print Center online.

The food buffet! Leaves were made with my Cricut Expression using the Accent Essentials cartridge.

Honey butter & Pineapple Jam! The tikibar cutout was made with my Cricut Expression using the Nifty Fifties cartridge.

Tropical Fruit Salad (kiwi, pineapple, strawberries) and the Hawaiian Pork, Shrimp &  Maui Cabbage (that's all DH- I'm vegetarian!)

Coconut Rice and "Jumba Juice" (guava juice and POM coconut &  pineapple blends)

Hawaiian Dump Cake (aptly named because you literally dump in two cans of fruit, a boxed cake mix, and a stick and a half of sliced butter, in the oven for 1 hr at 350 and it's ridiculously delicious! I'm not usually one to use boxed mixes, but GF cake is something I just haven't mastered yet and Betty Crocker has! hehe)

Our arts & crafts table- decorated with some scrapbooking paper & more lei flowers. There were coloring pages (also from Disney's Lilo & Stitch Print Center online), cut out some more leaves for DD to decorate with stickers, and since the wee one is too small to make the flowers herself, I assembled them for her (cut out flowers, poke 2 holes in the center, thread a pipe cleaner up through one hole and the button then back down through the other hole and twist the pipe cleaner together, done!)
