This weekend was Civic Long Weekend and the weather was dreary rain and cold. Not much fun for summer. However it was a perfect day for eating some delicious summer food and watching a movie. I pulled together the easiest Disney for Dinner for Dumbo!
Summer means lots of barbecued hotdogs and fresh cut fries around our house. We always have what we need on hand so all I needed to go was pull together some quick decorations and a dessert.
For the decor I used some diamond checked wrapping paper as a table cloth, printed up a Dumbo movie poster which I put in an old frame and used it as the table centrepiece. I filled some paper popcorn bags which I found at Dollar Tree with some Smartfood as a treat for the movie.
The kids and I baked up a box of cupcakes and frosted them while I printed off some Dumbo images and cut them on my Silhouette machine. We taped the images onto toothpicks and topped a couple of the cupcakes with our homemade picks. We bought these french fry cup and paper, also from Dollar Tree, earlier this summer and we hadn’t used them yet so we made up our plates with them.
That was it. A fun and easy Dumbo movie night with some circus inspired food! And since this is 100% kid friendly fare, I didn’t have to convince anyone to finish their food. The prep and clean up also kept the kiddos busy on a cold and rainy summer day.
