With twin 12-year old daughters, we often get over-ruled when it comes to movie night choices. Luckily, there are plenty of “kid” movies that can be fun for the entire family… including Matilda. Matilda is about a little girl who is wise beyond her years and smarter than her parents (sound familiar?). She discovers she has magical powers and uses food to deal with her neglectful parents, dimwit brother and dominating school principal.  Sure, there’s the predictable slap-stick pie in the face, but as the movie progresses, the food becomes an integral role in the movies’ story-telling.

My photo inspiration comes from the scene where Matilda’s mom wins big at bingo, so she treats the family to dinner at “Cafe the Ritz” where there are petits fours galore. It is easy to recreate your own sweet service with the “Eat More Cake” Crofthouse Collection™ Cake Stand (700018), assorted Enamelware Collection plates and trays, add tasty tidbits in resealable jars (CJS12) and sip ice cold milk from nostalgic glass milk jars (H92005), complete with chalkboard labels (CBSLA12) and eco-friendly paper straws (100124).

Without spoiling the end of the movie, let’s just say everyone gets their just desserts!
