Brave Party Food Ideas 

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!

Brave Party Supplies

 

Throw an epic birthday party with Princess Merida and all her movie friends. Brave is a wonderfully unique spin on a classic princess tale. This movie is a celebration of a young woman's independence and makes for an exciting party theme.

Based on the Disney/Pixar movie ‘Brave', our colorful Brave Party Supplies feature the spunky archer Merida and her pals on themed paper plates, napkins, cups, and party kits.

Brave Party Activities

 

For a party activity set up an archery competition just like Merida used to carve her own path in life. Take this printable archery target to a printing company and then set it up outside at your party. Since the arrows have suction cups on the ends, you might want to laminate your target.

Get this bow and arrow set and let the competition begin.

Another activity option is a rainbow pinata

Send the kids on a scavenger hunt. Here is a link to a free printable scavenger hunt. Consider changing some of the items to objects more closely related to the Brave movie. For example: a stuffed bear, something red (for Merida's hair), a rock, a horse figurine, etc.

Brave Party Foods

 

Add some free Brave printable cupcake wrappers to your Brave themed party.

This is a great idea from Disney Family. Make Cookie Bear Claws:

Make rainbow pudding...

Brave party supplies (found via party supply stores) are available with a green, blue and purple color scheme, so you could also use these colors for items such as such as balloons, streamers and paper party goods. You can combine these with some of the following decorating ideas:
  • Dress the party table with Celtic-designed tablecloths.
  • A gazebo or tent can also be draped with Celtic fabrics and signs featuring Scottish crests.
  • A camping tent, whose top has been covered with greenery, can replicate the witch’s cottage.
  • Place a cauldron inside where party guests can pretend to make their own spells. If your tent is large enough, a fun idea is to have an adult dress like the old witch and serve punch from the cauldron inside the tent.
  • Cut large blocks of styrofoam or cardboard into the shapes of the boulders that form the stone circle. Paint the structures with grey paint and use black paint to enhance with Celtic “carvings.” Arrange them in a circle (stake them in the ground) to form your very own circle of stones.
  • Table settings: Serve food from cast iron pots, wooden bowls and pottery. Serve drinks from goblets.

Disney Brave Cupcakes with FREE Printable Wrappers

Looking for some cupcake ideas to go along with your Disney Brave Party? If so you can stop looking because you just found a great one right here. Best part is I am going to show you how to create these Disney Brave Cupcakes step by step and it is not hard at all.

Last week when I was posting about the Disney Brave Party Supplies I started thinking about some cupcake ideas to go along with this party theme. Being Merida the main character in the movie is an archer I knew it had to include some arrows and a bullseye target.

Once I had the idea in my head I had to think how to make it easy to do so that anyone can pull it off and I think I did that. These turned out to not be hard to create at all and trust me when I say anyone can do it. Maybe my idea will even give you some inspiration and you can change it up.

Either way I think they came out pretty cool and I am excited to share with you how it is done. Oh and the cupcake wrappers I made are FREE for printing - BONUS !!

Here is what I used to create these Disney Brave Cupcakes:

For the Cupcakes:

For the Bullseye Cookies:

Blend together Butter and Sugar. Then add in Vanilla. Slowly mix in Flour until mixture forms a crumbly ball that holds together when you knead it.

For the Arrows:

  • Round Toothpicks
  • White Paper
  • Glue Stick
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Black Gum Drops

To create your cupcakes simply bake them of course and let them cool.

Next color your frosting green for the grass., then fill your Decorating bag with your frosting and have your grass tip on. Then frost your cupcakes creating the look of grass on top - easy right?

Once that is done you can let it set up a bit and then take your FREE Printable Disney Brave Cupcake Wrapper and wrap it around your cupcake securing it with tape.

So far so easy - now set them aside and lets work on the Bullseye Cookies...

First let me say there are many ways you can create Bullseye Cookies, but I chose a way that was simple and easy to do to make it easy for anyone.

Roll out your Cookie Dough and cut your cookies using the 2 1/2″ Cookie Cutter. Bake your cookies at 350 for about 10 minutes or until lightly brown and let cool.

For the white icing I mixed together Confectioners Sugar, Milk and Clear Vanilla. I iced the tops of my cookies and let them set until that hardened.

Once the icing was set I painted on my Bullseye using a paint brush and Food Coloring Gels in Black, Blue and Red mixed with a tiny bit of water. Then I let them sit and dry awhile.

Now lets create the Arrows....

For the Arrows I used plain copy paper and cut with my X-Acto Knife, as shown in the photos above, the feathers for the end.

Then I just rolled the end of my toothpick on a Glue Stick and stuck my feathers to it, easy enough right?

Next I cut up a Black Gumdrop to create a triangle for the tip of the arrow and just stuck the toothpick end into it and an Arrow was born.

I made 2 Arrows for each of my cupcakes.

Now it was time for the Assembly...

Assembly is my favorite part !!

For the Bullseye Cookie I stuck a toothpick in it so it would stand up when I placed it in the cupcake.

Then I pushed the toothpick throw the arrow tip a tiny bit and stuck one on the cupcake and one in the Bullseye Cookie, not to suggest Merida would miss her target, but it looked cool.

That is it !!! Told ya it was EASY.

and there you have it - Disney Brave Cupcakes !! Perfect for your Disney Brave Party and the kids will think so too.

I want to thank my step sister Elissa for helping me with the frosting of the cupcakes. She was here visiting me when I made these and was a great help when it came to that.

If you create these cupcakes send me a picture - I would love to see them !!
