Last week we hosted a Disney Princess themed rehearsal cook-out.

rehearsal dinner, disney princess, weddingMy step son and his beautiful fiancé got married last week.  She loves everything Disney,  so she planned her wedding with a Disney princess theme.  They requested the rehearsal dinner be a cook-out at our house.  I wanted to make this special for them, so Bob and I created a Disney princess themed rehearsal cook-out. 

I thought the biggest challenge would be to keep it on an adult level and not to have it look like a little girl’s birthday party.

We decided to hold the party in the center of this building.  

My husband and I had a vision and formulated our plan.

To begin the decorating,  Bob moved everything out of the center of the building.

I purchased the shower curtains at the Dollar Tree for $1 each!

My husband, his son and a friend spent an evening cleaning the floor and hanging the curtains.  The curtains did blow apart with the wind, so if I ever did this again, I would find a way to hold them together.

These are the clear, plastic picture frames from the dollar store also.
