In 1991, during the era that was to become Disney Studio’s animation renaissance, a film that captured the hearts of millions debuted in theaters. Beauty and the Beast, the classic story written by French author Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, was an instant hit with audiences. The movie, which was nominated for 21 Academy Awards and won two of them for Beast Soundtrack and Best Original Song, tells the tale of loving not what is on the outside, but loving someone for who he is on the inside.

Belle, the bookish outcast of her provincial French village, trades places with her captured father when he is taken prisoner in the enchanted castle. Due to the selfishness of the young prince, he and everyone who lives there became different-he became a beast, and his servants became inanimate objects. The enchantress who cast the spell gave the prince a rose entombed in glass. A petal would fall each year until he found someone who loved him despite his beastly appearance; then the spell would be broken. If no one loved him, they would remain in these new forms forever.

While captured, Belle and Beast fall in love with each other. When Gaston, the handsome and vain town hero wants Belle to be his wife, storms the castle with the villagers to kill the Beast, he is killed along with Beast. But Belle kisses Beast and he returns to his princely form. True love saves the day.

In March 2017, Disney released an live action version of Beauty and the Beast and it became an instant box office hit, closing in on a billion dollars in box off receipts. While having a Beauty and the Beast party has never gone out of style, it is enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

Here are some ideas for you daughter’s Beauty and the Beast party.

Beauty and the Beast Paper Goods and Table Settings

Creating the perfect tablescape is easy with the right accessories. You can go one of two ways. First, you can buy paper good that feature the animated Belle and Beast. Children will be very familiar with these characters.

The other thing that you can do is create a color coordinated table with a few simple accessories that make your table look like it belongs in Beast's dining room in the castle. Using the color theme from the movie, use a blue tablecloth as your base. At each setting, put a yellow plate and yellow utensils. For the final embellishment, use rose themed napkins like these.

Beauty and the Beast Party Games

What's a party without a few games to keep guests occupied? Here are a few that fit right in with your theme.

Horse Relay Race

Belle races on her horse, Phillipe, throughout the movie. Divide the children into groups and have them gallop across the lawn using this inflatable horse.
