Tangled | Personal

So last night we had our little Tangled Party. Tangled was the first movie I took Rilyn to see in the theater and we both just loved it. Disney really got this one right, the perfect tale of adventure and romance. I had anxiously been waiting for it to come out on DVD, so as the release day approached my friend Mishelle and I had the idea to have a small launch party with popcorn…..well that idea spun into a little more than popcorn.

We invited  a few more friends so we had 5 princesses in total, ages 2-5. I brought the play set inside and made it into Rapunzel’s tower, planned some crafts, cooked up some Tangled inspired treats, and of course, the grand finale paper lantern launch. The evening was completely magical. Yeah, it was a little more work then the average playdate but the looks of excitement and joy on each girls face was completely worth it.

The found the template and instructions for the Pascal Party Blowers and Tower Centerpiece from the Disney Site. The cupcakes are just topped with IKEA flowers. The Jello boats were an idea from the Super Mom Blog. She has tons of great ideas, I used her party for a lot of inspiration. Each girl received a Princess Box as they arrived, they were from and filled with mostly goodies from Target’s dollar section. I included a mini Tangled coloring book to occupy the kids until everyone got there.  The playset was decorated with Flynn Rider wanted posters, blankets, curtains, and fake flowers to make it look more like Rapunzel’s tower.

Once all the girls arrived, we decorated crowns (mom’s attached a Rapunzel ponytail), took pictures in the tower, then painted the tower walls. Rapunzel is stuck in her tower for years so one of her favorite things to do is paint the walls. I covered the real walls with white paper then each girl got a plastic bowl with washable finger paint and a stamper. This was really a hit with the girls.

Time to eat! Don’t worry, they had pizza first.

Movie time!!!! They were so excited!

After the movie we went outside to launch a paper lantern but I am not going to link were I got it. Yes, it was very cool and the girls were amazed but I seriously almost burnt down my house. My husband was handling the lantern and we had it attached to a string to control it but it floated right into the tree in our front yard and he was not able to direct it away. Lucky for us he was able to pull it out with that string but I was about to freak out…..I had the vision of, well officer, have you seen the movie Tangled? Do you think my insurance will cover the damage?

Even with the near catastrophe the night was incredible.

    Would you consider posting pictures of the tower the kids painted. This was my daughter’s first Disney Princess movie too. I am probably going to skip the lanterns too..Thanks so much.

    Hi Julie, I actually just taped large sheets of white paper to the wall and then brought the playset from outside in. We decorated the playset to make it look more like the movie Tangled.
