Focused on the Magic: Our #DisneySide @ Home Celebration

Moving right along in our Disney @Home Celebration Series we come to the sweets, snacks and smoothie table. Preparing the hot buffet while visiting with guests is always a challenge for me but I had a really great helper in Peter. I really couldn't have done this without him. He also helped me in preparing all the sweets and snacks. Because our party was cancelled a few times my family enjoyed cakes and cupcakes throughout the month of February. They didn't complain and made great Disney Side taste testers. 
The centerpiece of our table was the Minnie and Daisy cupcake stand that was included in our party box. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the Disney and MomSelect teams thought of everything when they put the party boxes together.

Focused on the Magic Disney Side @Home Celebration Fun for All Ages


With the winter snows and sorrows behind us (and a few cancelled parties) it was time to put the pixie dust back in our lives and have our Disney Side Celebration.

We love showing our Disney Side and sharing it with our friends and family. Mix in some fabulous food and fun entertainment and you can't go wrong.

What was really cool was that pretty much all the supplies needed for my party were included in my party box. You can read all about what was in my party box kit in Focused on the Magic: Our #DisneySide @ Home Celebration Part 1! There were Disney themed plates, cups, napkins, decorations and much much more.

It's no secret that we are a Disney Fan Family who loves to show our #DisneySide. So, when we were selected to host a Disney @Home Celebration again this year I was beyond excited. Our Frozen Fun For All #DisneySide Party was such a blast last time I couldn't wait to have another and try all the Disney themed recipes I have learned since then.

Wordless Wednesday: It All Started With A Mouse

Hi Disney photography fans. Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic where each week we get together to share our #DisneySide vacation photos.

This week's theme is "Photo Flashback".
I like to challenge myself to try new things when I'm on a Disney adventure. I've tried new foods, stepped outside my comfort zone on rides and attractions and pushed my photography skills. This HDR (high dynamic range) photo was my first taken during one of those self imposed photo challenges in Walt Disney World. I started with Mickey because well "...it all started with a mouse".

"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse." - Walt Disney

Hop to the Music with Disney Music Group Giveaway and Review

I received the Hop To The Music pack as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network. No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own. This post may also contain affiliate links.
This Spring get ready to Hop to the Music with your favorite Disney Music albums!
I am so excited to host this Hop to the Music Giveaway from Disney Music Group. There are 4 awesome CD titles featured and one lucky reader will receive all 4 Disney Music CDs!

Hop to the Music with Disney Music Group Giveaway

Easter is fast approaching! I know many of us are still looking at piles of snow but Spring has sprung and Easter is right around the corner. So, I was thrilled when I received a fabulously springy package from Disney Music with the 4 popular Disney Hop To The Music CDs inside wrapped in cellophane, colorful Easter grass and tied together with a pretty ribbon.
Inside I found

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 
  • Into the Woods Soundtrack 
  • Frozen The Songs 
  • Disney Junior DJ Shuffle 2

We couldn't wait to listen to all the CDs and thoroughly enjoyed entertaining our guests at our Disney @Home Celebration. I think that theses titles would be great to include in Easter baskets, party prizes or just treat yourself. My favorite CD from the group was the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol.1. I fell in love with the soundtrack when I first saw the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy. The music is a compilation of tunes from the 70's and 80's. They brought back a flood of wonderful memories for me. I'm a real retro girl so for me the music of the 70's is the best! This is an awesome album to rock out to in the car too! All of the albums would make perfect gifts and great additions to anyone's music library. They can be found at the new Disney Music Emporium along with more hit Disney albums.

Hi Disney photography fans. Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic where each week we get together to share our #DisneySide vacation photos.

This week's theme is "Disney Royalty".
Maybe it's because we celebrated my sisters birthday this week and I am still feeling the magic of sisterly love but I couldn't resist the latest additions to the Disney Royal family, Princess Anna and Queen Elsa from Frozen.
