It’s movie night and we are venturing into the Spider-Verse! A giant toy and Halloween decorations all came out to make one simple but super fun tablescape for this one.

This movie is exciting, funny and full of action. As always, I recommend you take a look here to make sure it’s a good fit for your family.

I printed up a little menu and gave our food fun names. My kids were excited to see Spider-Pig AKA “Peter Porker” in this movie and I was excited to try to recreate the sweet pork from Costa Vida. I used this recipe and it turned out really well.

My husband loves it any time I make sopapilla cheesecake and it fit well with this simple menu. I originally found the recipe here and I think of Beth Moore when I make it.

This giant Spider-man originally belonged to my son, but has since been taken over by my daughter. Yes, Spider-man has attended many tea parties and danced to princess music more than I’m sure he would care to admit.

I paired my red plates with spiderweb plates and a spiderweb table runner from my Halloween items. They set the Spidey scene!

Tacos… a fun, clean movie as a family, sopapilla cheesecake… now THAT’S a Friday night if you ask me!

Movie Night: Nico the Unicorn

All things glittery, sparkly, make-believe, and rainbows come together to make this movie night magical for any unicorn-loving kid. My daughter is unicorn crazy, so this one was designed with her in mind. Flowers, confetti and pastels covered the table. I was so excited to bust out my new Unicorn Mini Attachment.

Don’t be afraid to mix real plates with paper ones. These little unicorn plates and napkins from Swoozies were too cute to pass up.

All the frilly fun elements were so fun to pull together.

Our movie was Nico the Unicorn. After researching many options, I settled on this one. It is not rated, so I was surprised (and disappointed) that it has some bad language. It also has some scary scenes that might be too much for little ones. My usual sources for parental information don’t include this movie, so please use your own discretion. It did have an engaging story-line and lots of action. Plus… a beautiful unicorn is the star of the show!

A festive table on a Friday night with my family brings me so much joy!

Dinner was extra fun… I made unicorn sushi! It was a little tricky, but easier than you might think. I found the recipe here, but altered it slightly. It’s just vegetables, rice and seaweed… so it’s kid-friendly. The most fun part was coloring all the rice.

After I laid it all out I added the sliced vegetables…

Then the tricky part… rolling it up and slicing into rolls.

They turned out to be so beautiful and my kids were seriously amazed!!

Lest you think we are super fancy all the time, the sushi was the appetizer and the rest of the meal included “Believe Burgers” with Brussels sprouts and good old mac and cheese.

I set up a little treat bar for our dessert and movie snacks. Costco’s Unicorn Popcorn was a must and I included some delicious cookies with rainbow sprinkles.

I hope you are planning to enjoy a magical, mythical movie night this weekend!

Movie Night: The Luck of the Irish

Movie Night, St. Patrick's DayAmy WileyComment

You’re in luck because I found a perfectly family-friendly movie for you this St. Patrick’s Day weekend!

The Luck of the Irish is a Disney Channel movie that mixes some leprechaun shenanigans with basketball.  It’s silly, funny, and absolutely fitting for St. Patrick’s Day.

The story line of the movie made for a fun and unique table theme. I mixed in basketball napkins from the Target Dollar Spot and I love how the orange fits with the Irish colors.

My shamrock plates are from Homegoods and I always enjoy using them year after year.

The little pennant and foam fingers are also Dollar Spot finds.  My kids noticed these first!  I like how they add at sporty touch.  I also know I will find another use for them down the road.

I can always count on Trader Joe’s for a themed meal.  My guys especially enjoyed this “Blarney Scone” soda bread.

Our main course was bangers and mash... and it was a huge hit! Or should I say... slam dunk.  Movie night is a great excuse to try something out of the ordinary for our family.

Shamrock Shakes were a sweet ending for this movie night.  I love any excuse for sprinkles and a fun straw. The “Lucky You” napkins are from the Sassy Napkin Society.

We hope movie night will be part of the shenanigans you get up to this weekend!
