NBA Draft Party

The boys were pretty excited for the NBA Draft tonight, so we decided to through a little party for ourselves. 

We had these decorations from a past birthday party. We drew basketball lines on the cups and balloons. 

For food we had basketball cheese bread with pepperoni basketball lines. (
We also had a lot of other circular items: hamburgers, onion rings, and tator tot crowns. 

For dessert we had basketball cupcakes. I frosted the cupcakes with orange frosting and drew on basketball lines. I made sugar cookies into rectangles, put white glaze on them and stuck a mini peanut butter cup on as the hoop. I stuck a stick in the cookie and then placed the stick in the cupcake. 

I also did some without the glaze on the cookie. 

The best part was getting "draft" root beer from the local brewery.

Beauty and the Beast "Be Our Guest" Dinner Party

The DVD release of Beauty and the Beast was yesterday. We decided to celebrate getting the movie with a little "Be Our Guest" dinner party. We had beef ragout (just beef sauteed with onion and potatoes on the side because my kids don't like beef stew), cheese souffle (biscuits baked with cheese on top), mini apple pies, and "the grey stuff" (vanilla pudding with crushed Oreos and Reddi-whip mixed together, piped on a plate, and topped with sprinkles) We raised our plastic champagne glasses, had our dinner, and then watched the movie. 
We had more fun with this photo board I painted when the movie came out in theaters in February:
