Start off your Labor Day weekend with a Mulan watch party! Here’s everything you need to make it memorable.
It’s not coming out in theaters, but it’s coming to you nonetheless! Mulan is being released on Disney+ this weekend, and we can’t wait. Get your celebration right with a few essentials: food, activities, and decor. Here are some ideas you can throw together to create a fun atmosphere for your Mulan watch party.
Studio 5 Producer Liana Tan has a few suggestions when it comes to the menu. Being part Chinese, and with a dad who is a chef, Liana grew up with lots of tasty food. You don’t have to be versed in Chinese cuisine to try them out though. Just run to your local grocery store and pick up a few things from the frozen section. Or, there is always good old Panda Express.
Engage the kids with a few fun activities! This fan craft from Raising Whasians is super easy. You already have the supplies, the only thing you might need are chopsticks. Order from Panda and you’ll get some free with your meal! The blog post has even more inspiration for a full on Mulan party so you can make it a full event!
Get into origami! This Pinterest page will give you all kinds of ideas and tutorials. You can also go straight to origami.guide to find instructions for just about anything you can imagine.
Another great place to find origami tutorials is YouTube. Here are several step-by-steps to get you started:
This paper lantern is so easy to make. You just need paper and an x-acto knife or scissors. Make a bunch of them, string them up, and they can act as some of your decor for the evening!
Set the mood for your Mulan watch party with themed decor! We love this idea from A Party Style. Grab some butcher paper and look up some Chinese characters to trace or copy. Make it say something fun! Then just lay out a generic red tablecloth, put your paper on top and you have yourself a fancy dinner table, Mulan style.
Fortune cookies in a pretty glass jar make a great centerpiece. Used for an adoption shower, this idea comes from The Party Wagon. They tied some gold cord around the top and finished it off with a red tag. Get some fortune cookies here, or at your local Asian market or party supply store.
