Suburban Soiree

Movie Night: Cars 3

Movie NightAmy WileyComment

Confession... my husband and I love the Disney Cars movies more than we should as fully grown adults.  We just completely dork out over them.  My husband is a "car guy" through and through which means we are a "car family" (an excellent hobby for kids) and these movies are just so cute, nostalgic and fun to us.  That's why we not only saw Cars 3 in the theater, we did a movie night now that it's on DVD.  It's coming to Netflix on January 31st so start planning your movie night!

The tablecloth is from my son's first birthday. (sniff) The great thing about Disney movies is all the merch.  I mixed in generic car stuff we had on hand with the Disney stuff.  I bought both sizes of plates and the napkins, but ended up saving the dinner plates.  We used them up throughout the weekend which meant less dishes for me to wash.  Bless.

The combination of black plates and silver chargers made me think of tires.  We gave out Cars ring pops at Halloween and I stashed six of them away for this movie night.  They were either Cruz Ramirez or Lightening McQueen.  I thought having a couple of extra would give me a good mix.  Well, all six were Cruz!  I used them as napkin rings, which delighted the kids to no end.

I also couldn't resist a little swag.  I found Jackson Storm and Cruz fidget spinners on Zulily.  I put the little rubber bracelets on our glasses.  The mini racers I threw in my grocery cart one day... too cute to resist!

I used a red runner to break up the busy tablecloth.

In my flurry of new year's organizing I discovered these cupcake liners and picks in my stash... so I made funfetti cupcakes in them.

One of these days I will be patient enough to ice cupcakes properly!

I found this darling banner and put it up behind the table.  It's going to my son's room next.

Dinner was really leftovers in disguise... Mississippi roast, macaroni and cheese and salad.  Nobody cared that we ate leftover roast with all this hoopla.  I also got out my awesome Arthur Court Route 66 chip-and-dip.

I used it for bread and spreadable butter and it worked rather well.

This movie night came at the end of a busy week, and it left us in great spirits to start the weekend.  Both little kids and big kids like us will enjoy it!  I'll leave you with some fun Cars items to plan your movie night... KA-CHOW!
