Cinderella Party -Dinner and Movie Night: Cinderella party decoration ideas, party printables, and a themed dinner menu of Cinderella inspired foods.
We are having so much fun creating our Disney Princess Dinners and Movie Nights! We’re choosing our favourite Disney princess movies and creating a themed dinner that goes with the movie to enjoy while we watch it. This week we did a Cinderella Party and it was so great.
We’ve also done a The Princes and The Frog Dinner and Movie Night -catch up all the details from it here. And last week we did a Snow White Dinner and Movie Night -find all the details from our Snow White night here.
Disney’s Cinderella was first released in 1950, so it would definitely be considered a classic princess movie. We all grew up with it and love it, especially those adorable mice. And the fairy god mother is pretty much a dream come true too.
Cinderella Party Decorations
For decor for our Cinderella movie night, we started out with some inexpensive tulle fabric in the classic Cinderella blue colour. This flouncy fabric reminded me of her ball gown and was the perfect table cloth layer for our table. While I was at the fabric store I also picked up some pink satin ribbon, and some inexpensive teal beading. In the movie the mice find some of the stepsister’s cast offs to add to the dress they help sew for Cinderella, but when the step sisters see them on the finished dress, they rip them off and take them back ruining Cinderella’s gown.
Another fun piece on the table, also inspired by the mice sewing for Cinderella is the cloche of sewing supplies. I used some vintage scissors, more pearl beads, and some vintage wood spools of pink and blue thread that I found at an antique market to create a perfect little vignette.
As well I added some faux pumpkins to the table, a nod to the pumpkin that is turned into the carriage by the fairy god mother. These were some I had I my fall decor, and the white worked perfectly with our colour scheme of blue, pink, and white. As well, the clock plays an important role in Cinderella, since the magic spell ends at midnight, and everything turns back as it was.
Cinderella Party Printables
The printables are the perfect addition to this Cinderella party. We framed the poster in a simple white frame and it looks beautiful for the party or as decor in a girl’s bedroom afterward.
The printable movie tickets are the perfect way to invite your kids, family, or friends. Just print and give out as an invitation.
We also made cute food labels to go with our menu. We’ve included some blank ones too that you can customize or use as place cards for your own party. There’s also round cupcake picks, that we used here on our drink glasses, and straw flags to add to straws.
Cinderella Dinner Menu
- Pumpkin Cannelloni with Sage Browned Butter Sauce
- Clock Bread
- Happily Ever After Wedding Cake
- Cinderella Sippers Cotton Candy Drinks
Inspired by the pumpkins, we knew we needed to include a pumpkin dish for our dinner. We made Pumpkin Cannelloni with Sage Browned Butter Sauce. It’s a favourite here, full of rich and creamy pumpkin and sage flavours. It’s mild and should be a hit with most kids who love pasta. Find the recipe for our Pumpkin Cannelloni with Sage Browned Butter Sauce here.
We also had some clock bread. This was really simple to put together.
I bought a fresh loaf from the bakery, and then used a food safe edible marker to add the clock hands and ticks. You could also do with individual bread rolls. Such a fun and easy addition to go with our theme.
We made these cotton candy drinks for our movie night called “Cinderella Sippers”. They’re so easy to make with just two ingredients, and they were the most perfect shade of Cinderella blue. Find the simple recipe for Cotton Candy Drinks here.
The Wedding Cake
For dessert we made our own Happily Ever After wedding cake.
Don’t worry it was very simple to put together. I used two white cake mixes and little homemade icing to make it. The cake topper is a Cricut project made from bass wood. You can find all the details of how to make the “happily ever after” cake topper here, as well as a free Cricut cut file for the project. If you didn’t want to make a cake, you could always do cupcakes, but the cake was pretty easy to put together and so much fun.
This party was so much fun to put together. And don’t forget, it also pairs perfectly with the new live action version of Cinderella too -which is really great for older kids too.
With a Cinderella dinner and movie night like this, life really is a party.
