Movie Night: Peter Rabbit

Good things come to those who wait... it's true!  My kids begged to see Peter Rabbit in the theater, but we waited until it was out on On Demand/DVD.   I even found some cute Peter Rabbit napkins and pasta on clearance at World Market.  Our patience paid off in the cutest of ways!

This table setting is so bright and cheery it just makes you smile.  I pulled out a few Easter items in honor of the beloved little rabbit.


The pretty bunny vase is from Target and my sweet friend at Living Designs made the monogram.


I used my beloved Target Dollar Spot bowls and bunny plates I've had forever.


These are from the now-defunct website Celebration Fantastic.  Does anyone remember it?  I wish it was still around!


Aren't the napkins darling?  I put the extras away in my Easter stash.


Not only was the colorful pasta perfect for the movie, it made for a quick and easy dinner.  I just added a jar of sauce and some grilled chicken.


I found these popcorn "carrots" around Easter and stashed them away for our movie treat.


This was so much more budget-friendly than going to the theater and it is always relaxing and comfortable to be at home.


The movie itself was really cute and enjoyable.  We all laughed a lot and that's the sign of a great Friday night!

Movie Night: Easter Parade

Movie Night, EasterAmy WileyComment

It’s Easter weekend and I have a delightful family movie night to share with you.  It involves putting Peeps in the microwave.  More on that in a moment.

Easter Parade came out in 1948 starring Judy Garland and Fred Astaire.  I love mixing in classic movies to our family nights.  This film is full of gorgeous gowns, fabulous hats, and beautiful singing and dancing. I adore it!


Our table is overflowing with Easter fun.  I’m the opposite of a minimalist... I like all the beautiful things all together!


I’ve had these bunny plates and napkin rings for many years.


After dinner we enjoyed one of our favorite Easter treats... Peeps s’mores! 


I know Peeps can be a divisive topic (ha) but we are pro-Peep.  Yum!

If you have access to some sort of fancy outdoor fireplace situation, by all means roast your Peep on an open flame.  We put them in the microwave for exactly six seconds and it does the trick. 


Try not to have too many s’mores because you’ll want to fit into your fabulous Easter attire.  You know, something like this...


Or this... 


Step back in time with this beautiful movie and enjoy some family time with your peeps!
