Disney Dinners: Mary Poppins Returns

An easy menu inspired by English tea and served in a colorful London park setting “Everything is possible. Even the impossible.” – Mary Poppins I couldn’t even tell you how many times I watched Mary Poppins growing up. Rather than remaking the classic, Disney continued the story in 2018 with a brand new film starring…

Tea Sandwich Flight

Looking for tea inspiration? You’ve come to the right place! I served four easy mini sandwiches as a tea sandwich flight at Disney Dinners: Mary Poppins Returns as a nod to all the flying in the film. I’ve always wanted to do a tea sandwich flight after experiencing one at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise…

Blueberry Mint Iced Tea

A refreshing afternoon drink for spring and summer Wow, this is good. This also happens to be the first iced tea recipe to ever appear on The Rose Table! I served this thirst-quenching drink at Disney Dinners: Mary Poppins Returns because I wanted a whimsical iced tea that would fit the spring park setting. The…

Lemon Lavender Buttermilk Scones

Scones are so quintessentially British, aren’t they? So of course I had to serve some at Disney Dinners: Mary Poppins Returns! I already had four variations of this buttermilk scone here on The Rose Table but came up with a brand new one for this tea.  I chose lavender to represent Mary Poppins, who is…

Disney Dinners: Cinderella Ball

An elegant ball with French flair inspired by Cinderella  I quite literally had a ball on Saturday night. What a way to end my 12 Months of Disney Dinners series! I spent all of 2018 hosting Disney themed dinner parties for adults (see them all under the Disney Dinners tab here on my website) and…

Bleu Stuffed Mushrooms

How gorgeous are these mushrooms!? I loved warm, cheesy stuffed mushrooms but cooking mushrooms in a ballgown just isn’t practical, so I served a chilled stuffed mushroom at my Cinderella Ball. Bonus? It’s *almost* sky blue, which was totally on theme! I gave them the adorable name Bibbidi Bobbidi Bleu Stuffed Mushrooms at the party….

French Cheese Board

I truly believe the key to happiness is hard meats and soft cheeses. You can quote me on that. This board combines a variety of French cheeses with salty cured meats, olives, fruits, preserves (Okay, fine, I forgot to set out the fig preserves. They’re still in my pantry!), and honey arranged beautifully with herbs….

Tortilla Roll Ups

My mom has been making tortilla roll ups as long as I can remember. I make them for most big parties I host because they’re so fast and easy to make and it’s a filling appetizer that requires no cooking. What’s not to love? These are bursting with flavors and color thanks to the green…

Grilled Ratatouille Pasta Salad

An easy pasta salad inspired by one of my favorite French dishes! Ratatouille is one of my favorite French dishes. The simple stew has just a few ingredients: eggplant, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, parsley, and basil. I’ve taken some of those ingredients and turned them into a delicious pasta salad that can be made ahead for easy entertaining….

Marinated Shrimp

An impressive party appetizer My mom has been making this forever and I finally made my own version of it for my Cinderella Ball. It’s such a great party recipe because it ups the flavor profile of shrimp but it’s still as easy as whisking. If you can whisk, you can make this recipe! You…

Veggie Platter

Don’t knock a veggie platter even at the fanciest of gatherings. Why? So many party dishes are rich and cheesy that many guests welcome some raw veggies to lighten things up. Paired with doctored up hummus and ranch (my homemade tzatziki would be wonderful too!), this is an easy thing to put together. I served…
