"Tale as Old as Time..."
This week on the blog we are going to have a number of Beauty and the Beast inspired activities to celebrate the release of the new live action movie by Disney!!
We had a movie viewing party where a Beauty and the Beast inspired dinner was served, along with some special desserts and treats - then we watched the animated classic movie. It was a fun night and I wanted to share some of the things that we did in case it gives you some ideas for your own movie screening party - or even a birthday party!
The Enchanted Rose makes a great table centerpiece and actually was quite easy to make! I collected materials from Michael's and Hobby Lobby earlier in the day, and completed it in under 10 minutes while I was making dinner! Not too bad!!
How to Make It!
Collect your materials! Here's what I used: glass cloche jar from Michael's. From Hobby Lobby: silk rose, loose rose petals, floral foam, dried moss, clear glue and sparkle accents optional. I also already had an LED mini light strand on hand from Target DollarSpot. They typical have these out at holiday times and cost around $3 per strand.
Once you have your things together, it goes really quick and easy! I trimmed the rose down the height that I wanted and also cut the foam in half. It was the smallest round floral foam, but I still wanted it to be a bit slimmer profile. I used the included adhesive with the foam to secure it to the wood. I wove the LED light strand through the rose petals so that light could shine through the petals in some places and wrapped the wire down the stem.
After the LED lights were in place, I was ready to place the rose in the floral foam and cover the foam with dried moss. I added a few gold star accents using clear glue as a finishing touch, and that's it!
It also looks super cool lit up at night!!
I'll have additional videos coming up showing how we made the Grey Stuff and LeFou's Brew at home as well!

We had so much fun with this movie party at home! I'm looking forward to sharing all of the details with you! Just let me know if you have any questions!
