Teen Beach 2
My kids were counting down the months, weeks and days to Disney's Teen Beach 2 Movie premier that recently aired on Disney Channel. I wanted to make it extra special for them and their friends by hosting a themed movie premier party. For the food we ordered Hawaiian pizza. We also made Teriyaki chicken with steamed and shrimp cabbage salad for the adult parents. King's Hawaiian rolls would have been a perfect addition. The food possibilities are endless. Other alternatives included pineapple teriyaki burgers or bbq meatballs with Hawaiian rolls among others.
I started off with creating labels for our water bottles. The typical size is 2.5 inches x 8 inches. You can fit 4 on an 11.5x8 standard sheet of paper. I like to print these on Avery full size blank sticker paper.
This is a party invitation idea. I used the water bottle label background on a wood grain background to create the postcard size invitation.
As for all of the sweet stuff, I found something similar to these on Pinterest. I used nutter butter cookies and piped the blue frosting that I had left over from my cupcakes. You can use a Skittles candy for the decoration. I used a small flower shape cutter on fondant. This cost me less than $3.00 to make.
For the little surfboards I used Madeline cookies that I bought at my local Costco. Again, I used some of the frosting that I had from the cupcakes I made to pipe the outline with a #2 Wilton tip. Brown sugar makes a good substitute for sand. I stuck a few Swedish Fish on a lollipop sticks and placed them on a bucket. I called those shark bait.
I made orange creamcicle flavored cupcakes to go with the theme. I used the internet to find the character pictures and the logo. I sized them to be about 3/4 of an inch. I used coordinating cardstock paper to used as boarders and taped a toothpick to the pack to make cupcake toppers.
For the pre-movie activities the kids designed their own surfboards. I found the sheet online. The Disney website also has all sorts of themed activities that you can download and use for free.
We found all sorts of fun cups and Aloha props at our local 99 cents store to help build excitement. Enjoy hosting your own and feel free to share what you did.
