Around here, we love Ferdinand!  We (kind of) transported ourselves to Spain for this one.

My grandmother gave me this book at my baby shower for my son, in a darling basket full of classic books.  Needless to say, it's been one of our favorites for a long time, so we were thrilled to learn this story was becoming a movie.

I could not resist picking up Beanie Boo Ferdinands for my kids.  Look at him!

I served dinner buffet-style on the kitchen island.  It was Spanish-tapas inspired.  I say inspired because it ended up being more Mediterranean.  (Perhaps because I picked most of this up at my grocery store's "Mediterranean bar.") It was still in the tapas tradition of multiple appetizers.  What I loved most was that my kids enjoyed several things they don't usually eat.  Movie night is a great excuse to switch things up.

For dessert, I have a rosette cake pan and I wanted to make little red velvet rose cakes since Ferdinand loves flowers.  For whatever reason, they were a flop.  I was so sad!  It was darling in my mind... ha!

The movie is sweet and funny.  Who can resist Kate McKinnon as Lupe the calming goat?!?!?
