Twilight Party!

Less than 1 week until the Twilight DVD is released! And that means less than 1 week until the most amazing Twilight DVD Release party ever. My great Twi-hard friends Kari, Tracey and Becky are co-hosting this party with me and we have some serious party plans. I thought I'd share our ideas with you in case you are planning a party of your own... (If you are coming to the party, please cover your eyes - we don't want to ruin any surprises!)

Costumes - the invites ask guests to dress as their favorite Twilight character. We’re going to make a twilight gift basket for the “best costume.” I'll be going as Alice Cullen - can you see it? I can, because I can see the future.

Food - all from the book or movie - mushroom ravioli, mini pizzas (Bella dared Edward to eat and he ate pizza in the book), spinach salad, berry cobbler (from the movie) and vampire cupcakes (just for fun). We’re also having bowls of apples and Twilight Sweethearts.

Wine - Bella Sera (white), Newton Claret, Vampire wine - The beer that Charlie drank is not available anymore but we might make fake “R” labels for our beers. And, cokes (from the Italian restaurant scene)

Decor - white lights wrapped around the trees (like Alice’s parties in the books), red roses, red candles. Black plates and napkins. (We’re doing a black/red/white theme.) Stand Up Edward - we have a life-sized Edward and will offer pictures with him. Action Figure Edward - he will be mingling with the guests.

Paper fans with pictures of Edward - the deleted scenes might make people need to fan themselves.

Wine glass stem markers with quotes from the movie and book.

Those are our ideas. I know I'm giving away our secrets... I wonder if this is a good idea. Oh, you won't tell anyone, will you?

Are you having a party? What are your plans?


  1. You crack me up! My students got me reading the books and I ended up loving them. I'm glad you're having fun with it! I wish I had the time/energy/friends here to do it. Have a blast and I look forward to seeing pictures.

  2. You are the coolest dork I know. I so wish I could be there. I could eat my weight in vampire cupcakes.

  3. This is great! I just have to share- I read your blog post about Twilight back on March 3rd. I had no idea what Twilight was. My husband bought me the book because he heard good things about it, but I just let it sit there, and when I read your post, it didn't even ring a bell. A few days went by and I made the connection between your post and the book sitting not even 3 feet away from me. Your post and a few other comments on Facebook made me decide to pick it up and read it (well, that and I was out of other books to read, and Twilight was just sitting there.) Oh my gosh!! I've finished the first three books and started the fourth last night. All in about a week and a half. Talk about TOTAL addiction. lol! All I can think about is Edward and Bella now! lol!

    I just had to share that. :-) I've been lurking for a couple months on your site. My friend Sara T (of Sara and Adam) passed along your blog when we made the decision to start our journey to Ethiopia.

    Hope the party goes well!

  4. I am studying my costume recommendations and gearing up!

  5. This totally cracks me up!! HOW did you get hold of that lifesized edward??

  6. Sounds like it will be super fun!! I'm trying to convince my friends here that we need to do it!!!

  7. I'm so sad I'm going to miss it. It sounds like so much fun. . . cupcakes! WINE! LSE!

    PLEASE take lots o' photos.

    I get a house full of screaming tweens going gaga over Edward and Jacob.

    And vampires have their own dot com? Whoa man.

  8. I am so bummed that I am missing your party but can't wait to go to Sara's party the week after yours! Any excuse to swoon with women who "get it" is a good thing -- swooning with an Action Figure Edward is priceless!
