Allegiant Party Ideas | Red Velvet Stacked Cookie Cakes

Fun Allegiant Party Ideas perfect for Divergent movie fans! Simple Red Velvet Stacked Cookie Cakes Recipe and Free Party Printables. LivingLocurto.com

My family loves the Divergent series and we can’t wait for the new film Allegiant. I’m excited to be working with Lionsgate to share some fun new Allegiant Party Ideas inspired by the movie! This was so much fun!!

The third installment of The Divergent Series: Allegiant hits theaters on March 18th. If you read the book, you know that Tris must escape with Four and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. Once outside, they discover shocking new truths and place called The Fringe full of bright red tones, hence my Red Velvet Stacked Cookie Cakes!

How good do these look? Believe me, they taste as good as they look, plus they are so easy to make!

The movie is full of gorgeous red tones with white (I love the Tris’s white dress) and dark gray colors that I incorporated into my party table.

Along with the recipe for Red Velvet Stacked Cookie Cakes, I designed free party printables to make your Allegiant Party table complete!

Since all Divergent fans love Tris and Four, I definitely wanted them to be a party of the table design. To make our favorite couple stand out, I scaled one of the movie posters down to a 4×6 printable sign along with some fun tags to use for cake toppers, party favors or gifts.

To bring more red from The Fringe into your party, add some raspberries or strawberries to your table. I filled some mason jars with Sprite and topped with raspberries for a festive Fringe drink.

I’ve been busy filming videos for my YouTube Channel and couldn’t wait to give you a preview of these cute Mickey & Minnie Mouse Christmas Cookies!

We just got back from Disney World and I was inspired by all of the beautiful Christmas decorations to make these fun and easy no bake cookies.

The week before our trip, I was in Orlando and it was in the 90’s. When we got to the park it turned rainy and cold. I only packed t-shirts and shorts, so we HAD to buy these cute Minnie Mouse hooded sweatshirts. Really, just about every sweatshirt was sold out at the park because people didn’t plan on it being cold.

Since I’ve been wearing my cute Minnie Mouse sweat shirt non-stop since coming home, Minnie was in my head… or ON my head. Ha! Hence these sweet Disney themed cookies on the brain.

I’m still editing the step-by-step how-to video for these cookies, but with Christmas in FULL swing now, I thought you might like this Disney inspiration to get ready for holiday parties.

I found the adorable candy bows at Walmart. You can order them online here. Then with a few different types of Christmas sprinkles and frosting, the Oreo Mickey and Minnie Mouse cookies I assembled turned into festive holiday delights!

Then I covered one cookie in sprinkles and loved that even better!
