T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Redecorate With These Awesome Disney Finds!

I don’t know about you, but I have a TON of things I want to get done in 2016: things to clean, things to accomplish, things to change – and things to make better, too! One of the things that’s on my many lists this year is to spruce up the house – do a deep clean and then do some redecorating too, and I am hoping to get some more Disney into my design scheme. If you’re considering doing some redecorating in 2016, then you’ll definitely want to check these out:

You don’t have to be an artist to create an awesome Disney-themed kid’s room – decals are available online or at a lot of local retailers, and anyone can slap a fresh coat of paint on some old furniture to spruce it up!

Disney bedrooms aren’t just for the little ones – using black, white and a splash of red with some Mickey décor can really make for a sharp looking adult bedroom too!

Mickey perks up even the smallest space – and the bathroom is a great space to freshen up (since it gets a lot of use!). Kohl’s has some great Disney bath accessories right now, and they are pretty affordable too!

I love the idea of getting to display all my favorite Disney kitchen ware (most of which I brought back from the Parks), and putting up shelves or hooks in a dining or kitchen area is pretty simple, and a great way to decorate too

One of my favorite Disney trip souvenirs is the photos I take while at WDW – I love looking over them and then printing the best ones for framing and albums. A Disney trip vacation photo wall is a great way to express your love for Disney anywhere you have a blank wall – and you can add things like a pin shadow box too

Hopefully these have inspired you to head to your local home improvement store and get some things done around the house – I know I can’t wait to infuse a little bit more Disney into my house this year!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Home Décor – It’s Not Just For The Kid’s Rooms!

Disney characters a really common theme for nurseries and kids bedrooms – and with good reason! They are fun and easy to coordinate – considering that basically EVERY store sells Disney stuff now. Speaking of Disney stuff – I am always looking for nice “grown up” Disney décor to spruce up my house – and when I went looking recently, I found some GREAT stuff:

Kohl’s just started selling this line of awesome Mickey bathroom décor – check it all out here. I especially love the Mickey “polka dot” pattern!

I love these vintage Disney movie signs – they would look great in a family room or a media room, don’t you think? You can buy them at your local Hobby Lobby

Hallmark sells some great Disney items – like this amazing Cinderella Carriage Silhouette – I actually have this, I received it as a birthday present last year and I LOVE it – it sits on my bedside table

Wouldn’t this be super cute in the kitchen for reminders/to do lists? Check out all the Hallmark Disney goodies here

And I shall leave you with this inspiration – from the Mouse himself…

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mickey Shaped Foods At Home!

One of the best things about visiting Walt Disney World is getting to enjoy all the amazing FOOD they offer at the Parks and Resorts – and while I enjoy trying new things on each trip, there are some that are just classic must-do’s on every visit. The most delicious of them all are the Mickey Shaped Foods – because who wouldn’t want to bite into Mickey’s ear?

If you’ve got that post-Disney withdrawal setting in, or maybe you haven’t been in a while, then maybe you need to make some Mickey shaped foods at home!

This is actually an egg/pancake ring that my husband used to make some awesome chocolate sugar cookies, but it worked great as a cookie cutter too! You can purchase it on amazon

And if you want an actual cookie cutter, Wilton makes a Mickey Cookie Cutter that you can buy at craft stores like Joann’s and Michaels, or places like Target, Walmart, and Party City have them as well

If you’re feeling crafty, you can freehand some Mickey pancakes…

…Or if your pancakes tend to end up looking like blobs (like mine do), then you can always try the Mickey Waffle Maker

I love that I can re-create a little piece of WDW right in my home – and the BEST part is, it’s edible!

Delicious Disney Desserts– At Home!

I have written before about various Disney cookbooks and online resources like Magical Recipes where you can go to get Disney recipes, and I have to say, I really do love recreating these at home – especially the desserts! I love baking (I love it so much I even blog about it), and I love recreating Disney treats at home too, so I decided I would pull together a list of my faves to share with you:

Top 5 Disney DIY Baked Goods:

 

 

 

Double Chocolate cookies – These are easy to make, and delicious – who doesn’t love chocolate plus more chocolate? You can find these at The Main Street Bakery in Disney’s Magic Kingdom – pair them with a tall glass of milk and you have a delicious snack (or breakfast perhaps? No judgment here)

 

BCupcake

Butterfinger Cupcakes – These are simply amazing – it’s a chocolate cupcake with a fudge center, and its topped with a mound of whipped frosting covered in a chocolate shell encrusted with butterfinger pieces. It’s a lot to take in, but it’s a perfect snack to share (or not share, depending on how hungry you are!). You can find these at Starring Roles over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

CarrotCakeCookie

Carrot cake cookies – a must try at the Writer’s Stop in Hollywood Studios – with two moist cookies encasing a mound of delicious frosting – this treat will satisfy that sweet tooth of yours for sure

chocolate-peanut-butter-sandwich

Chocolate peanut butter sandwich – graham crackers and peanut butter and chocolate combine to make the perfect treat (not to mention one that’s easy to recreate at home!). These squares of yumminess can be found at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom

 

 

Dole-whip-float

Dole Whip –Ok, so this one doesn’t technically count as “baking”, but it IS a Disney cult classic that is loved by all – it’s simple, refreshing, and tropically delicious

I also write weekly articles over at Chip and Company and I have been doing a series on Disney DIY recipes, which has been super fun, to research recipes used at the Parks and try them out and write about them – talk about a delicious experiment!

I highly recommend you give these and my others over at Chip and Co a try at home – whether you are having a party or you’re just hungry for that Disney Magic!
