20 Fun and Creative Ways to Celebrate Beauty and the Beast

It’s almost time to see Beauty and the Beast!  I’m super excited about seeing the theatrical version of one of my favorite movies. In celebration, I thought I’d round up some really fun and creative ways to celebrate Beauty and the Beast. Every day more and more ideas and “merch” are popping up, but here are a few of my favorites so far!

20 Fun and Creative Ways to Celebrate Beauty and the Beast

  1. HSN Beauty and the Beast Collection – This collection includes bedding, jewelry, accessories, and even tableware. You could host your very own Beauty and the Beast gala if you wanted to! I love the Waterford Crystal tableware (Might have something to do with my Irish blood!)
  2. Luxe Bloom Beauty and the Beast Glass Cloche – Is this not absolutely beautiful? It’s a must-have for any Beauty and the Beast fanatic. The cloche would make a pretty addition to any room in your home.  The rose lasts up to 60 days with absolutely no care on your part. Just put it on display and enjoy.
  3. Build-A-Bear Workshop’s Beast Bear. If your kids are fans of Build-A-Bear, they’ll love this guy!
  4. ”Beauty and the Beast Dancing” Giclé – found at the Disney Store, of course! Princess lovers would love to hang this on their wall!
  5. Also at the Disney store: ”Time for Tea” Giclée on Canvas by Clinton Hobart. I might just have to buy this one.
  6. One more Disney store item: The Belle Doll. Girls of every age will certainly want to add this to their doll collection.
  7. Williams Sonoma has a really cool Limited Edition Le Creuset Beauty and the Beast Soup Pot. Awesome and something I’d love to own!
  8. The Ceramic Chip Mug you can find at Walmart is absolutely adorable.
  9. If you want to dress up for the premiere, why not wear a Beauty and the Beast Suit Jacket like this one found at Hot Topic?
  10. No worries – Hot Topic also carries the Beauty and the Beast Belle Ball Gown.

Maybe merchandise isn’t your thing. How about celebrating the new movie by making some fun crafts with your family?

I don’t know about you, but I’m so wrapped up in the excitement that I plan on trying most of these crafts and recipes out…and maybe a trip to Build-A-Bear is in order. I might even stop and grab that ball gown on the way to the theater! Okay, probably not, but it’s still fun to imagine!
