“I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID THIS!”
I know I said that Tangled was postponed but Rapunzel didn’t let an eighteen year quarantine stop her from having some Disney magic so we’re not going to either! Tonight it’s just you and me, Rosies.
Tangled was released ten years ago this year. Can you believe it? Tangled is a fantastic spring party theme. It’s whimsical without being too crazy and the purple and gold color scheme is so lovely! Here’s how to host your very own Tangled party, recipes and all!
I hung purple garlands over my dining room doorway and on my china cabinet, plus some white wisteria around my dining room windows. I hung up a copycat WANTED poster featuring my dog, Henry, that’s just like Flynn’s in the movie, and wrote “I See the Light” on my chalkboard.
I styled my side table with a cast iron skillet (which Rapunzel repeatedly smacks Flynn with), a lilac-scented purple candle, and pink and purple bleeding roses.
After the sun went down, it was the twinkle light curtain’s time to shine. I wanted to emulate the romantic floating lantern atmosphere from Flynn and Rapunzel’s romantic boat ride.
“I want to see the floating lights!”
I kept the table quite bare since all three courses involved setting something in the center of the table. I only adorned the center with a large vase of purple wisteria (faux, because floral departments are currently closed!), and two floating candles to again signify the boat scene.
Are these the prettiest faux florals you’ve ever seen? I think they look absolutely stunning and I get to keep them in my living room as a beautiful reminder of Tangled.
The Place Settings
I’m obsessed with these placemats. Obsessed. They’re reversible but I can’t imagine using theater side because I adore this muted floral that reminds me so much of the forest in which Rapunzel and Flynn adventure.I used my ivory Emma plates, gold branch forks, and golf knives (Rapunzel is a princess, after all!) and my gold napkins as a nod to the magical flower that gave Rapunzel’s hair its power.
For my Rapunzel look, I wore a ruffled purple maxi dress with a green ring and green bracelet as a nod to Pascal. I’m pleased to say, one of my friends who had no idea that I was filming Tangled messaged me on Instagram and said, “Well don’t you look like a Disney princess today.” So I guess the look worked!
I don’t know about you but I get major pirate vibes from Flynn Rider so I came up with a rum-based cocktail called The Smolder. Get the recipe here.
Rapunzel’s Braid Bread with Honey Butter
What a whimsical way to start dinner! I made a delicious braided bread from scratch but instead of making one large loaf, I made three baguette-sized loaves to set together on the table as one long bread braid. This is a fantastic bread recipe. I’ve made it now numerous times and it’s never given me a lick of trouble. Plus, it freezes perfectly so bake all three loaves and save two to pull out later in the week! Get the recipe here.
Frying Pan Chicken
Frying pans, who knew? I came up with this fantastic weeknight chicken recipe, determined to create a recipe entirely centered around Rapunzel’s weapon of choice. It’s juicy, it’s cheap to make, and it’s a total crowd pleaser! This now in my weekly dinner rotation and I’m so glad to be able to share it with you. Get the recipe here.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Mason Jars
I knew I wanted to serve dessert on a boat (a sushi boat, to be exact) with twinkling lights in the background as an homage to the Tangled hit song I See the Light but it took me forever to decide what to serve! I finally settled on chocolate chip cookie cheesecake mason jars, since Rapunzel bakes chocolate chip cookies in the beginning of the film. Kids will love this easy-to-make dessert! Get the recipe here.
“BEST. DAY. EVER!”
