Lilo and Stitch Party: This Dinner and Movie viewing party includes decor, menu, recipes, and free printable Lilo and Stitch Menu Card.
Lilo and Stitch
The classic animated Disney film favourite Lilo and Stitch is the theme for our party! It’s the old story of someone seemingly unloveable, receiving love and learning to give it in return. And set in Hawaii, it’s full of pretty scenery, hula dancing, surfing scenes, and sunshine. Inspired by the film, we put together a fun and easy menu that paired with it perfectly for a great “Dinner and a Movie Night”.
We’re planning a trip to Disney soon, and it’s inspired us to enjoy some old Disney movies together as a family before we go. We had actually never seen Lilo and Stitch before and I have to say I really enjoyed it #tearjerker. My daughter Maddie put this whole viewing party together -from the table setting, printable menus, to most of the cooking. I love summer holidays when kids have time to get creative!
Lilo and Stitch Tablescape
We wanted to eat our dinner in the living room while we watched the movie, so she set up dinner on our coffee table.
Maddie set the table with a really simple paper runner that she made. She used regular copy paper and cut it out on the Cricut into tropical leaves -find the pattern she used here.
For the rest of the table she just used some things we had around the house -white plates, gold cutlery, small wood side plates, and vintage brass candlesticks.

Lilo and Stitch Dinner
The menu is inspired by the Polynesian restaurant ‘Ohana, at Disney World, where Lilo and Stitch are know to make an appearance. (Check out their dinner menu here.) Maddie made the sweet and sour kebabs with this recipe -and they were really delicious!
The coconut milkshakes have become a family favourite of ours and the recipe is really simple. You can find our coconut milkshake recipe here.
For dessert, we were inspired by the ‘Ohana’s famous Tropical Bread Pudding with Caramel Banana Topping. Maddie started out with this basic bread pudding recipe (leaving out the apples and raisins and using egg bread). And then for the caramel sauce, she used the sauce from our Pumpkin Profiteroles, and added in sliced bananas. It was really delicious. And I love to see how willing to experiment she is!
We had a great time enjoying our delicious dinner while we watched the movie. It was so fun, and perfect prep for our Disney trip. It would be a great “Dinner and Movie” for any special family night, or as a kids birthday party idea.
