brave Party Decoration Ideas
The right decorations can make all the difference at your Disney brave party! Whether you would like to use a Disney princess theme or opt for party decorations that embrace the Scottish setting of brave, you’ll find great brave decoration ideas below:
- Create a castle or rainy countryside using craft paper. Cut out the shapes of large boulders or the columns from Stonehenge from gray craft paper and hang it on the walls. You can also cut out a castle and hang it on the wall. Set your table to look like a medieval court!
- Buy, rent or borrow archery targets to place around the party area. You can also cut circles out of craft paper to make your own decorations. Hang your craft paper targets on the wall or attach them to sand bags.
- Hang brave banners, posters, and stills from the brave movie around your party area.
- Group sets of green, gold and purple balloons around the party area. Include a few brave balloons for a touch of fun in your brave decorations!
In addition to pizza, chicken fingers, hamburgers or hotdogs, you can add some brave themed food into the mix. Here are some suggestions.
- Throw a medieval feast! Serve drinks in goblets.
- Bake archery target sugar cookies! Start by making our sugar cookie recipe or buying refrigerated sugar cookie dough. Let the dough soften to room temperature and separate the dough into three parts. Mix red food coloring into one portion, blue to the second, and leave the third uncolored. Roll the red dough into a long log shape. Roll the blue dough flat with a rolling pin and wrap the blue dough around the red roll completely. Do the same with the uncolored dough to for the outermost layer. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 2-3 hours until firm. Slice off 3/8 inch slices of the cookie log and position evenly on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake as directed and enjoy!
- Serve some of the treats seen in the brave movie. Scones, shortbread and jam, Scottish sweet buns, and Linzer Heart Cookies are some great examples. If you’re planning on serving lunch or dinner, you can try traditional Scottish foods like Haggis (you can substitute regular sausage for this and call it Haggis), Mince and tatties (ground beef and mashed potatoes), and cider.
- Bake bear claw cookies from chocolate cookie dough. Add almond slivers to make claws!
