twilight DVD party

Saturday night I had a bunch of friends over to watch Twilight new on DVD. I've been planning this party for quite a while and I had lots of fun planning all the details. There were quite a few people there that I didn't know very well, and it was fun to get to know some more people here in our new place. We ate lots of yummy food (everyone was very creative with their Twilight-themed snacks), watched the movie, and gabbed. Thanks everyone for coming!


Here's the sign I made to hang on the front doorThe table decorations and candy bar

I printed a bunch of quotes from the book and spread them out on the table
I put different tags on the glasses so everyone would remember which glass was theirs after setting it down. I made strawberry flavored red heart ice cubes to put in soda for the drink. It was yummy and a cool effect.
These are the red velvet cupcakes that I made. My sister-in-law Charise made red velvet cupcakes too, and it wasn't planned at all. She put edible glitter on hers so they sparkled.

My blood (red caramel) covered red apples. Very Twilightish, and yummy!
Someone brought these Twilight sweethearts and Twizzlers "Bites."

More blood...Strawberries and angel food cake

My friend Greta made this yummy red popcorn. We also had "blood" popsicles, apple crisp, Count Chocula bars, and cookies.

At the end of the night, everyone went home with a box like this filled with goodies. What a fun, night!

Hello! I was just browsing blog land for some good ideas for decorating at my New Moon party. I really love love love the decor from your Twilight party. I would like to make a "The City of Forks Welcomes You" sign, but was wondering how you made the seal or whatever you call it (the circle with the truck and trees)...did you just free hand it? Also, I'm so lovin' those big red and black flowers hanging about your food table...any tips on making those?

If you have any help for me, I would be forever grateful! My e-mail is jaltman@goldenfieldservices.com

Hello I really love your "Forks Washington" sign as well and would love details on how you created it! My party is in two weeks in celebration of the DVD release. Your help is much appreciated! Thank you.
